NEW YEAR’S DINNER TABLE

New Year's Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

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.

What a sweet table! I am over the moon for that salt and pepper shaker set. For someone who drinks very little, but enjoys some Champagne on special occasions, I adore that! Have a happy and healthy New Year!
