The new year is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect opportunity to gather with friends for a dinner party and bubbly beverages to celebrate. If you’re looking to create an unforgettable evening to kick off the new year, then a glamorous tablescape is a must. This New Year’s Eve Tablescape is festive and fun while also being deceptively simple to recreate.
For a festive tablescape, consider adding a few glittery touches such as a metallic tablecloth, a few sparkly ornaments, or shimmery ribbon. Place candles around the table for a cozy atmosphere and add some glamorous touches with silver or gold chargers and coordinating placemats. Use colorful dishes to create a cohesive look and top them with personalized place cards for each guest.
For this New Year’s Eve Tablescape, my initial inspiration was a giant clock. Ever since I bought this oversized clock a few years ago, I’ve had this idea that it needed to be a part of a New Year’s Eve vignette and that it would make the perfect backdrop as we counted down to midnight.
Start by laying down a white or silver runner. Of course, you can choose any color you wish, but if you’re in doubt, I always recommend a neutral. I wanted this tablescape to feel a bit fancy but also whimsical, fabulous, and fun. I cut lengths of glittered ribbon and added it atop the evergreens (fresh cedar and fir) and LED twinkle lights that already made up the centerpiece from Christmas.
You’ll need to choose chargers, plates, glassware, silverware and napkins for this step. Make sure your chosen colors carry throughout the table. I actually brought out our wedding china for this tablescape, It’s difficult to tell from far away, but it’s a white on white embossed pattern with silver edges. My chosen stemware for the place settings were also a classic from our wedding — my trusty Waterford goblets.
I set up the sideboard with more greens, jewels, and ribbon. I placed a few coupe champagne flutes, and the bottle of Rosé bubbly on the table, and we were ready to celebrate! The Rosé champagne actually doubled as decor, playing off of the pink roses in the centerpiece. I loved that element of blush sprinkled throughout the room.
I hope you enjoyed these New Year’s Eve tablescape ideas. A tablescape with a sideboard display is great way to decorate for the holiday and add some festive cheer to your home. Tap the link below to read the full post and follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome for more!
