In my “neck of the woods”, we have a “good luck” meal on New Year’s Day. It must include black eyed peas and cabbage. I add sterilized dimes to the black eyed peas. The legend is that, if you get a dime in your serving, you will have good luck in the new year. Of course, if you bite down on a dime, you’re not starting the new year with luck!
In case you think I’m one of those efficient people who have already put away their Christmas décor, I’m going to be honest and tell you that I removed the snowmen that hung from these winter wreaths and replaced them with New Year’s paper plates.
Christmas still resides right next to those new year’s wreaths.
With the exception of the “good luck meal”, I apparently like to live dangerously on New Year’s Day.
Confetti is offered in a bowl on a side table, and...
A tray contains vintage party noise makers.
Each dinner table even offers confetti.
The napkins are tied with gold tassel ornaments, which guests may take home.
Confetti weighs in the scales in the center of the table.
There are a few different types of tassel ornaments. (S-h-h-h, don’t tell my guests…I got these ornaments in a box of Christmas décor at an estate sale one time.
There is confetti weighing in the scales on this table too.
Blue and white shades sit on top of wine stems that have battery powered candles in them.
And yes, there are even scales filled with confetti on the children’s table! Have I lost my mind?
Thanks for welcoming the new year with me. I don’t plan to post again until 2015! Hope to see you then.
