We don't do a big New Year's Eve celebration, but we have to have our "good-luck" New Year's Day dinner.
We'll have our traditional (for us) good-luck dinner...cornbread, cabbage, pork tenderloin, and hoppin' john without the peas. Our black-eyed peas are cooked in a separate pot. Before serving them, I add boiled dimes to the pot. The person who gets the dime on their plate is supposed to have the best luck in the new year. Of course, I add enough dimes so that everyone at the table can get one.
There is a New Year's hat or tiara and a horn at each place setting.
I started the plate stack with silver colored, beaded square chargers. I added a deep blue rimmed dinner plate (Snowflake by Noble Excellence). On top of that, I used a paper new year's dessert plate topped by the glass dinner plate that the food will go on.
A champagne bottle serves salt, and the ice bucket serves pepper.
Sugar scuttles hold confetti, and black, white, and silver confetti litters the table top.
For the centerpiece, I added silver and clear Christmas balls to a hurricane.
If you read my Christmas tables post, you may have already figured out that I found copper-wire, battery-powered tiny lights on half price and bought about 8 strings of them to use on the Christmas tables. I've used one string in and around the base of this hurricane.
Thank you for your visit, and I wish you a wonderful 2016!
