Set the Table - New Year's Eve 2017

Another year is almost over and a brand new year is upon us.

Entertaining on this special night can be made elegant with just a few additions to your ordinary dishes and accessories.

We chose a mostly gold, white, and purple theme.

 Then we added some sparkle with gold crinkle used for gift bag filler along with a generous sprinkling of gold and silver flakes.

 It starts with a foundation of a shimmery tablecloth and napkins.

Each place setting starts with a purple paisley scrapbook paper placemat and is topped with a gold charger.

The plate stack is two white dinner plates of different sizes, a purple salad plate topped with a white saucer and gold bowl.

Each gold bowl received either a beaded ball or a beaded glass bird in a gold crinkle nest.

The brass lamp is actually a glass and brass jar sitting on an inverted brass bowl.

Happy New Year!!!

Very best wishes for 2018.
