I set the table for New Year's Eve HERE.
Who really has time to reinvent the wheel in less than 12 hours?
Not me for sure!
I used some of the same elements and toned it all down for a buffet dining New Year's Day.
I wanted to use my white dinner plates. My husband wanted to use the clear plates. I think he likes the new chargers? Your thoughts...
My favorite burlap runner, gold candle rings (candle removed for photo), clear plates, gold flatware, Mikasa crystal, crystal candleholders and the same centerpiece from the evening before.
See, quite simple.
Perfect for the jeans and boots crowd.
Chandelier still all gussied up.
Spider mums are amazingly effective for impact in an arrangement.
Nope, didn't really have time to wash and press the napkins. I have quite a few of these.
Estate sale, price was right. Bought them all.
Monogrammed them all.
New gold chargers found at Tuesday Morning.
International gold flatware.
World Market Anchor Hocking dinner plates.
Buy them by the dozen.
Since the table is extended from the evening before,
I added a pillar candle on each end. Set in a
simple gold candle ring, from I think the Dol-lah Store.
Not a bright gold, but a wonderful muted shade. Works itself into all types of settings.
Our new buffet arrives this week -- ooh can't wait.. but till then, the
table is draped with a vintage boutis, awaiting the desserts!
Do you light candles during the day time?
I read somewhere that that is such a big no-no. Is it?
My new chalkboard in the kitchen - LOVE it!
Today it listed the menu.
Helps me to remember to take it all out of the fridge!
Surely, you've never forgotten a dish in the refrig?
