Today I’m starting something new that you’ll be seeing more of in the New Year, so be sure to scroll down the post. I actually meant to take just one photo as inspiration to then lead into the new feature, but I kind of got carried away snapping pictures, so I’ll post a few and then talk about where I’m headed. It all started when I got it in my head that I wanted a rose gold New Year’s Eve table setting.
Well, not exactly…
New Year’s Eve is a holiday I’ve been hosting in my home for years. When my kids were young, ours was the home you could come to if you had your kids with you for the evening and it’s kind of evolved from there. Yet some years, when I’m completely exhausted from entertaining at home, I welcome the opportunity to go out. With our kids grown and us still recovering from a huge bash for hubby’s recent birthday, this is one of those years.
Yet we will still spend part of the evening here celebrating and I started to think about my serving decor. At the same time, I’ve recently started doing eDesign (for table settings, as well as home decor) and thought this was the perfect time to introduce a new feature I will be adding to the blog.
From time to time I’ll be doing thematic virtual tabletop design with readily available products, including the sourcing information and links to make it easier for readers to find and duplicate the look. (Some of the links will be affiliate links but they will always be products I love and would choose for myself.)
The posts may include some inspiration photos but then will deliver a complete digital presentation board showing the products used together. You can see how this will work below.
So for this New Year’s Eve, while I won’t be setting a full dinner table for my own guests, I am offering you the design I would have used if we were having our party at home. My little bar server here set up for drinks is only the introduction.
For New Years I love to focus my decor on lots of bling and glimmer, because after all, if not now, when? I enjoy champagne and all the accouterments that go with it.
There’s always plenty of gold, but this year I decided to leave the typical black behind and give a little rest to the clock theme I so often use. Last year’s New Year’s Eve Serving Bar used both concepts and you may enjoy taking a peek at it. The prior year’s table you can also see here: Timepiece New Year’s Eve Table Setting.
This year, however, I decided to play up the warmth of rose gold. I’ve been hot on warmer tones since the beginning of fall, using copper liberally in much of my decor. So for my virtual New Year’s Eve tabletop, it only seemed natural to go one step more formal (I see copper as a tad more rustic) and embrace the delight of a rose gold theme.
So, without further ado, I’ll share with you my New Year’s Eve vision. Beneath the full tabletop eBoard, you can find sources with links to most of the items on the board. Enjoy, don’t forget to leave feedback and I wish you all a very happy New Year!!
