New Year's Eve Tablescape Inspiration

Hi Friends, I wanted to share a few images and ideas in case you are thinking of an impromptu New Year's Eve dinner or small celebration. I'm not a "tablescaper" like some of you, but I thought it would be fun to see a few tablescapes and gather some common themes. I've always wanted to do this, but our anniversary is at the end of December, so I've never gotten around to planning one. But that didn't keep me from admiring and checking out some fun inspiration for a vintage vibe New Year's Eve gathering. I thought I'd share some wonderful Pinterest ideas...

from Vintage Country Style

I fell in love with this small group table with farmhouse style. From using copies of vintage sheet music and chalkboards to chilling the champagne in a galvanized bucket. Of course clock face images adorn the party hat table decor.

Quickly on browsing through Pinterest, it's easy to see a decor theme for tablescapes. The color scheme is the first to stand out with black/gold/silver and white being the predominant hues for the table. In some ways it makes it a bit easier to pull together china or pottery for the base of the tablescape decor.

I love the mass of varied clear wine bottles with white candles. 
It creates such a dramatic ambiance with candlelight and bits of bling;
other table decor really isn't necessary.

 Mary creates amazing tablescapes that evoke a festive vintage mood.
Here is one of her detailed New Year's Eve settings.

Again we see the old clock face motif with black/silver/gold
in vintage and antique accessories.

Mercury Glass votives, fresh greens and a galvanized tin centerpiece
create a gorgeous French Country tablescape.

More gold and candlelight with the clock faces as table decor and mercury glass votives.
Gold and silver Christmas ornaments with strings of pearls meander for a centerpiece.

Here the leopard print and grays work as a neutral in an overhead view.
Using different clock faces keeps it interesting.

I love the idea of hanging objects, ornaments, and clocks
 from a chandelier above the tablescape.
The vintage silver ice bucket is used as a centerpiece this time
for a small intimate setting.

Printing out copies of antique clock faces make it super easy
to create your own themed New Year's "china"
by using glass or heavy plastic dinnerware with the print underneath.
Actually, this could work for any themed dinner party theme
by just attaching any photocopy print under glass.

So many fun ideas and inspiration to dress up your table here.

Beautiful ideas for a more elegant table setting from Lori at Dining Delight.
