Welcome to the 227th Tablescape Thursday!
My friend, Bonnie, rang in the New Year with a wonderful dinner party. Bonnie said, “The day started out on a beautiful note…. with snow!” What a gorgeous view!
Let’s go inside where it’s nice and warm. The table is all ready, even the chandelier is decorated for this celebration. And look! It’s the Blue Hour!
Bonnie’s dining room is so beautiful silhouetted against that Blue Hour sky. You can read more about the Blue Hour in this post: The Secret of the Blue Hour
Bonnie decorated the chandelier with party streamers and a little clock. Do you see the clock hanging from the bottom of the chandelier?
Remember the Pottery Barn clock plates we fell in love with in this picture from Bonnie’s New Year’s table last year? (Table can be viewed here: Elegant New Year’s Eve Table Setting)
Well this year, Pottery Barn had them in black. I saw them on the PB site this year but I’m still yearning for the original cream plates. Still hoping PB will bring those back one year. Do you think they are listening?
The black clock plates are gorgeous in this setting with the black chargers.
Beautiful stemware! Notice the clock place card holders…so perfect for a New Year’s table setting.
Love the bow tie napkin “rings.” Bow ties would be great for any table where you wish to add a little romance and elegance.
Thanks to Bonnie for sharing her beautiful New Year’s Eve Table Setting/ Happy 2013!
