Good golly it is already January 4th and I have yet to share my fancy New Years Eve Tablescape. Facepalm on that one, normally I start sharing my tables immediately but New Years like Christmas has me off kilter. Another Different colour for a different tradition and well just totally different.

New Years Eve Blue and Silver Table
2020 was a pastel year for me for the holidays. Pink for Christmas and Blue for New Years Eve, gosh I guess next up will be a yellow January.
Originally I , meaning Kent had planned a great NYE celebration with Ryan and Cait. Full special menu, fun activities and of course my contribution a great table. Then the plans changed, no special New Years Celebration with Family.
No matter a pretty table always makes me smile so I created this one. Setting the tabke as if we were still celebrating with the fam. . I think because I moved the tree this year and it served as a beautiful backdrop for the table.
Non Traditional Table in Blue and Silver
It is probably only natural that the gal that decorates her trees in theme colours would also wants a theme table. For 2020 I wanted my NYE table to be soft and welcoming with a hint of girl glam. And lucky for me Kent is OK with that.
The base naturally is the pale blue and silver tablecloth I picked up a few years ago at HomeSense. It provides a natural base to work with. Ironically the rest of the table came together after I selected the centerpiece. My Blue glitter reindeer and Tree seemed the perfect accent.
I wanted them on my table. So it all started with a sort of non Christmas-christmas theme. Reindeers and trees but not in a traditional way.
Creating the Center
My tables are most often created with items from around my home. This year I wanted simplicity. How could I make the deer and the tree blend into a simple table. Clear crystal candle holders and a pair of lite wine bottles seemed to provide the balance I wanted.
The candles a basic white because I didn’t have blue or silver and a lockdown meant work with what I have. The soft white helped create the mood. And then of course a few sets of salt and pepper shakers in a soft white. Balance and practicality are key with any tablescape.
Non Traditional Table settings
Once the center was complete the rest of the table was simple. Selecting the chargers was the easiest this time, I opted for a round silver charger to pick with the silver accents on my table. I thought a round set of white dishes would look simple and elegant against the silver.
Blue matching napkins in a half fan added some colour to each setting. The perfect accent to the centrepiece. This gal loves a full place setting so of course the Oneida came out and we went formal setting. Using the crystal knife rests I kept the crystal running through my tablescape.
Tip: If you are having a hard time finding knife rests, check out chopstick holders, they work beautifully.
I always add a full set of wine glasses and water glasses. Dining should be a savoured experience plus an excuse to enjoy a glass or two. Adding a few wine coasters to keep the wine chilled is a must.
New Years Eve dinner was a huge success
