In this post: If you’re looking for New Years Eve Party themes, why not celebrate the passage of time by using clocks and timepieces in your decor?
My favorite tablescapes tend to be conceptual in nature. Perhaps this is leftover from my days as a sportswear designer, but rarely do I just pile pretty objects on the table without a thematic foundation. In some small way my tables attempt to tell a story through imagery, color and pattern. This is how I came to one of my favorite New Years Eve party themes.
Since this particular setting was done for a New Year’s Eve dinner party, my concept was built around timepiece visuals, representing the passage of time. The napkin rings were made utilizing classic wire jewelry tools, joining a clock face charm, a labradorite bead and a simple crystal ring.
The table was heaped with plenty of crystal and silver to enhance the splash and sizzle one expects from a New Year’s celebration. DIY place cards incorporated vintage clock images, another nod to the time passage theme. (See resource list below.)
Canapes plates encourage a toast for the New Year.
The floral arrangements are comprised of golden yellow roses and white hydrangeas, with festive grass strands mimicking the arc of fireworks.
At the center of the table three mercury glass vases are topped with glinting holiday globes, an homage paid to the Times Square ball that drops as the New Year arrives.
The table is alight with glimmering golds and sparkling crystal, all set against a formal white damask tablecloth and snowy embroidered napkins.
The table is simple and easy to put together, yet grand enough for the occasion. What better way to ring in the New Year?
