RING IN THE NEW YEAR TABLESCAPE

Although we didn’t stay awake to ring in 2013 at midnight, we did ring it in with our New Year’s Day dinner with all those good luck foods.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I warned you that my New Year’s mantel was wild and crazy.  A couple of years ago, I purchased a box of vintage New Year’s hats at an estate sale, and now they are decorating our mantel.

Even though these photos look like we’ve already had a celebration, my sweetheart and I welcomed  2013 (doesn’t that sound weird?) with a very quiet night at home.

THE PARTYING BEGINS!

Those of you who have followed my blog posts for long enough know that after Christmas, I remove all of the Christmas ornaments from our two Christmas trees (which are about to shrivel up and turn brown by now.  Uh oh, was I supposed to water those things?)

As you can see, I replace them with New Year’s hats, beads, leis, and streamers.

I’ve always said that I love to decorate for New Year’s, because I think New Year’s décor can be wild and crazy, and that’s kind of the way my decor rolls on a regular basis.

Monday, I’ll be posting the trees with the New Year’s mantel, so be sure to check in.  You don’t want to miss the wild and crazy mantel!

HAPPY 2013

Have you seen the button on my sidebar about snowflakes for students returning to Sandy Hook School?  My grandchildren and I will be making some.  They need to be sent in time for the students return to school on the 12th of January.  If you’d like to participate, please visit Maryann at Domestically Speaking for the information.

I am linking to The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. 

Some of you have asked about our grandson.  Our little Cooper is still struggling, so your continued prayers for him are so appreciated.  laurie
