I’m the biggest proponent of not reinventing the wheel. However, I like to look trendy with all the newest stuff just like the next person. I’m going to show you how to change out your Christmas tablescape to create a New Year’s table. You can do this without having to create a whole new look completely from scratch. Doing it this way saves time and money. Let’s get started.
First, here is what the table looked like at Christmas. I had really showcased lots of silver and gold while using white as a base. The gray tablecloth extended my color palette so that I could use the dark gray placemats as well. The silver and gold salad plate brought the whole look together.
To change out to a New Year’s look I wanted to go a little sassier without going over the top. I still wanted to use the main pieces on the table and change up the mood to an evening look. To do that, I brought in the black velvet placemats. That immediately changed the look and took it from day to night. From there the look just fell into place.
Adding the Nate Berkus salad plates was my next move. The black candles from Joanna Gaines’ line from Target were the perfect accessory. I used crystal candle holders from Home Goods and I think it went perfectly with this tablescape. This cedar greenery is one of the best faux garlands that I’ve seen. It looks so realistic. I got it from Anthropologie and I have had so many people ask me if it is real. Especially if you are burning a Fresh Balsam candle from Bath and Body works.
Then throwing in some red in the flower arrangement just elevates the look. Red roses always up the romance factor. If you’re looking to go from Christmas to New Year’s for a simple switch you could try a look like this. It goes from day to night very easily with slight changes but big impact.
Happy New Year to you all. Be safe and have a great start to 2019!
