New Years Eve Tablescape
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.
I 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.
I then used these cute thrifted “toasting” salad plates. I just thought they were perfect for a New Years Eve table.
I 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).
I used my thrifted everyday Johnson Bros white Ironstone saucers and the glass and silver mugs (also thrifted).
Everyday 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!
I bought a set of 8 of these vintage clear and silver glasses at a thrift store last summer.
Wow, before I go any further, let me just apologize for not ironing this tablecloth! I forget how pictures show every flaw!
I love the black and silver bulb card holders (bought clearanced at Michaels).
Aren’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).
I pulled accessories from around my home to decorate the table.
Some of my centerpiece things:
Mercury glass apothecary jar~clearanced a few years ago at the Home Goods store. 2 crystal candlesticks~TJ Maxx free from sponsor gift card. Black and white ceramic orbs~free with Pier 1 coupon. 2 round mercury glass candleholders~The Christmas Tree Shops clearanced at .50 cents each. Larger mercury glass pillar holder~clearanced at Home Goods store. Thrifted coffee carafe. Glass chunks~Dollar Tree (years ago). Piece of silver mesh scarf ribbon~thrift store (years ago).
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!
