Welcome to the 175th Tablescape Thursday! Can you believe this is our 175th Tablescape Thursday? Wow! That’s a lot of fabulous tablescapes when you consider how many are linked here each week. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all you talented ladies and gents who share your amazing eye for detail and beauty. It’s so wonderful to visit your blogs. The world just melts away for a while as I lose myself in the wonderful table settings you create.
My friend, Bonnie, graciously shared the table she created for her New Year’s Eve celebration with friends. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I have this thing for clocks so this table setting is one of my faves. The chandelier got a touch of whimsy or should I say, it’s “chimerical.” (See the earlier post today.) Do you see the pocket watch draped above?
What a festive way to welcome in 2012! Love the black, gold and cream color scheme.
Clock salad plates are from Pottery Barn, last year. Love these!
What a great idea…using a bow tie as a napkin holder. Perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration.
Bonnie used masks as well. Fun!
I’d love a set of these clock-face plates but a quick check on eBay produced nada.
The vintage look of the clock plates goes so well with the centerpiece.
Bonnie, thanks so much for sharing this wonderful table! What a grand way to kick off the new year!
Pssst: Since those fabulous Pottery Barn Clock Plates are no longer available, I decided to make my own. You’ll find a tutorial for making them here: Pottery Barn Vintage Clock Plates: Make Your Own
