This year we have decided to have a very low-key New Year's Eve dinner at home. The crafter in me couldn't resist getting creative with a tablescape for the holiday, though! I'd already decided to turn my chalkboard chargers into "clocks" for the occasion and tried my hand at writing my numerals like those seen on French market signage.
Then I had the idea to use my 2" scalloped circle punch to create some giant confetti... kind of like champagne bubbles I used some leftover gift wrap, gift bags, and glitter tissue paper from Christmas. My brain started working overtime... French numerals... sparkly gold and silver bubbles...
Midnight in Paris! I remembered the Eiffel Tower I received from my Cupid Swap partner, which has been holding bracelets throughout the fall... and gave it pride of place in the center of the table, accompanied by a couple of faux mercury glass candleholders and a bottle of bubbly.
Just because we'll be watching Ryan Seacrest in our P.J.'s doesn't mean we can't have a fancy table setting, right?
I just love all the sparkle!
Happy 2014, friends!
