New Years Eve Tablescape: Transitions to Glamour



Whether it’s High Tea or a dinner party, the tablecape presentation sets the stage.

The hospitality decor visually tells you and your guests what this gathering is all about: formal, fun, flirty, casual, romantic — or some combination of all those styles.

And transitioning from one holiday tablescape celebration may sound like just too much work – on top of everything else on your to-do list.

But I’m here to reassure you that with a good foundation you can merely edit the tablescape composition to allow you to gracefully move from one seasonal or holiday celebration to another.

For example, I designed a Thanksgiving tablescape in silver tones – with the two shades of sparkly silver wrapping paper runners topped with silver trays and serving pieces — adorned with harvest food-as-luxury such as grapes, artichokes, pears and apples.

Starting with the basic foundation of silver and mirrors – to reflect the precious metals, lights and later – to Christmas gold and New Year’s sparkle.

Here, I added silver sparkle, chocolate turkeys, hour glasses with silver glitter, crystal and gold-painted faux pumpkins. Getting there…

Table setting for dinner with place settings, glitter placemats, silver painted wish bones — it’s fun for guests to share a holiday wish!

Don’t forget the name place card settings — they really add to the personalized style of the tablescape.

The meal sparkles with evening glow and firelight…

Moving to Christmas, I traded out a few pieces and added in some, mainly gold sparkly items such as the illuminated villages, gold and silver bells, gold trees, and shells, gold angel votive candle holders, silver jewelry, and colorful items including the Nutrcrackers, green balls in a crystal elevated dish – to add depth and dimension, and tiny fire engines with family names on them for place card name settings.

I also added a few luxury food items: oranges and pomegranates to celebrate the season.

Another great addition was the mini gift bags filled with chocolates. Also the the snow globe place settings are a great way to really personalize the look. You cut a photo and place in between the two side of the snow globe. Guests are delighted to see a favorite memory at their table setting — with snow falling.

Here is also a lovely gift that also is a table setting: gift wrapped local honey from a favorite client — from her very own bees! What a way to toast to the new year.

Homegrown Hugs. Thank you for a wonderful 2017. Cheers to good health and happiness in the new year. And to remembering to always add the best ingredient – Love — to all your designs – be it garden, tablescape or cocktails or food.

True luxury and glamour.

I am most grateful for you and your support.

Here I traded out the Silver of Thanksgiving for a holiday red theme with green moss balls in the Murano glass bowl, along with red glittery balls. And the cinnamon candles add a heavenly seasonal scent to the welcome entryway. Soft lights add to the ambiance.

Cheers.
