New Year’s Eve tablescapes don’t have to be expensive and time consuming. This post shares how a Christmas table flipped to New Year’s Eve in just a few easy steps.
New Year’s Eve Tablescape in Black and Gold
First, the dining room was cleared of all Christmas decor except for a bit of greenery. If you are a New Year’s “purist” …meaning no Christmas decor can be mixed with the New Year’s decor… then put it all away. This tablescape will still work for your New Year, too.
New Year’s Eve Tablescape DIY and Special Touches
When it comes to holiday decor, I try to convert generic items into holiday looks instead of buying theme-specific pieces.
DIY Bow Tie
This bow tie is a section of grosgrain ribbon cinched with a pipe cleaner and then twist-tied at the back of the vase.
The pipe cleaner works fine because this vase is sitting on a shelf in the hutch. There are two and if they were going on the table, I’d use a different technique. Truth is, there are a million ways to make bow ties. This was the quickest and easiest for this particular need.
I’ll link my Pinterest board of ideas at the bottom of the post.
Oh, and the shirt buttons are simply stick-on craft jewels.
New Year’s Bells
The way I see it, “Ring in the New Year” bells aren’t really any different than most Christmas bells.
Although, I did tuck away the traditional “bell-shaped” models as they did look a bit too Christmasy.
Then add some sparkling ribbon to brighten the metal and you’re good to go.
