New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and today I’m joined by 5 amazing Canadian Blogger Friends for our final #YearofFeasting posts to inspire your New Year’s Eve celebrations. Be sure to check out the links to all their party ideas at the bottom of this post. It’s been so fun collaborating with them all year to inspire more feasts and celebrating for all of us. We shared celebrations for Spring, Summer, Fall, and now Winter. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along with us, I’ve sure loved creating the feasts! We’re going out with a bang as we celebrate New Year’s Eve!
For my celebration, I’ve put together a beautiful New Year’s Eve tablescape. Since it’s New Years I added lots of glam -with mirrors, gold, silver, and candle light. One of my very favourite ways to ring in the New Year is at an elegant dinner party. Dress up, cook, order take-out, or ask everyone to bring a dish and avoid the crowds with a beautiful celebration in your own home. And if you’re at the kids stage of life, put them to bed -and your friends kids in the spare room, and still enjoy your night.
My table started with the mirrored disco balls down the centre. I collected large and small and medium sized mirrored balls. Lots are from dollar stores, some are from the Christmas decoration section of other stores. Basically you can’t have too many, the more the merrier and the more size variation the better. These weren’t expensive, most packages were just a few dollars and they have so much impact!
I used a silver table runner under the mirrored balls, and then added in some candles, and some giant gold confetti. I also had a few strands of mirrored garland that I wove in.
For the rest of the table, I used more silver and gold.
I partnered with Amara Home for the gorgeous champagne flutes and tumblers. I mixed and matched them, but they each come with 8 in a set, and every glass has a slightly different gold design on them. You could assign one design per person, and not worry about anyone mixing up their glasses all night
It’s always nice to have something special at each persons place setting, so everyone has a delicious homemade vanilla cupcake, complete with gold sprinkles waiting for them!
The balloons help set the New Year’s feel, and they were just picked up at the dollar store. The number balloons are filled with air and then tied up on a string so they’re super convenient for a party -love them!
On the other side, candles for the perfect New Year’s Eve glow. I’ve shared these before –see how I made them here. They’re just thrifted brass candles sticks that have a paint dip effect added.
I had so much fun setting up this festive, and sparkly table for New Year’s Eve.
All that’s left to do now, is pop the champagne and get celebrating!
I wish the you and yours the very, very best for 2018. With a beautiful New Year’s Eve table like this for celebrating, life really is a party!
