New Years Eve Tablescape

Hi everyone!
Today I thought I would share one of our past New Years Eve table. We had a very quiet evening. And the late dinner was mainly little appetizers and treats. But, I did set a table for Troy and I.
I started with a white thrifted tablecloth (bought years ago at a flea market). It has small silver threads running through it. And some thrifted black and white placemats.
I used simple stainless steel chargers that I bought last year from a vendor at the flea market. They had the original price tags from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $5.99 each. I paid $1.00 for both.
IMG_0031I then used black octagon plates that I bought at a yard sale this past summer. I saw the black plates under a stack of odds and ends plates on the table and asked the woman how much for the black plates. She said $1.00. I started taking out the black plates and she said, “No, take ALL of those dishes for $1.00”. So, I walked out with 15 dinner plates and 4 saucers for $1.00. Most of the other plates I really didn’t want so, I donated them.
IMG_0032 I then used these cute thrifted “toasting” salad plates. I just thought they were perfect for a New Years Eve table.
IMG_0033-tileI added my silver thrifted dessert plates (yup, I had to get the silver cleaner out and polish them up for this table. Geez, you can really see the scrapes).
IMG_0037I used my thrifted everyday Johnson Bros white Ironstone saucers and the glass and silver mugs (also thrifted).
IMG_0041Everyday silverware and simple white napkins with silver beaded napkin rings. This set was bought at TJ Maxx last year after Christmas. It was way after Christmas when I bought these. I think someone might have returned them so, they were clearanced very low and I got lucky!
IMG_0049I bought a set of 8 of these vintage clear and silver glasses  at a thrift store last summer.
IMG_0046Wow, before I go any further, let me just apologize for not ironing this tablecloth! I forget how pictures show every flaw!
IMG_0053 I love the black and silver bulb card holders (bought clearanced at Michaels).
IMG_0056 IMG_0057Aren’t these the cutest little silver bird candles! I picked them up after Christmas at the Home Good Store for 50% off (set of 4). 
 IMG_0054 I pulled accessories from around my home to decorate the table.

IMG_0090 IMG_0095 I did a quick mental count of the cost of everything on this table and it came out to be (my out of pocket cost) about $19.00.
I hope you enjoyed it!
