A New Year’s Winter Table Setting

Welcome to the 331st Tablescape Thursday!

Recently, my friend Bonnie created a beautiful winter tablescape for a New Year’s Eve dinner.

New Year's Table Setting Tablescape with Champagne Plates 06


This table setting included a Santa centerpiece dressed all in white, so this table would also work great as a Christmas tablescape, too.

Take away the Santa and this table setting would work great any time during the winter months.

Bonnie caught the Blue Hour in several of photos! Everything is so pretty contrasting against that Blue Hour sky.

Love these cute New Year’s salad plates! Bonnie found them many years ago in a Gilroy Outlet. The beautiful charger plates are from Joss & Main.

  1. Bonnie did it again. Such a gorgeous way to welcome the new year. Oh my! The room, during the Blue Hour, took my breath. The snowflakes, sparkling on the chandelier and on the napkin rings made all of it so festive. Love the New Year’s plates, and those chargers are exquisite. Thank you, Susan and Bonnie, for sharing this inspiration.

  2. That was a very pretty tablescape she created! Love the santa and the decorated chandelier with dangling iclicles and snowflakes. What a lucky find with those New Year’s plates- definitely keepers! The blue hour is gorgeous and does created a perfect background! Thank you for sharing and for the party!

      Liz, I wanted to let you know I followed your link above and loved your table scape. The colors were great. I especially loved the rooster plates, wire basket and checked napkins. I tried to leave you a comment but couldn’t because I don’t have any of those accounts. Very cute table though!

  3. Beautiful! I especially like the crystal snowflakes on the chandelier. Where on earth did you find them? Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Thanks so much, Maggie! I found the small snowflakes and the long icicles at Home Goods, and the larger snowflakes were found at TJ Maxx.

  4. Thank you so much for the party each week!
    Many Blessings,
    Pam (www.everydayliving.me)

  5. what a beautiful blog! I just bought a tree to decorate year round. glad to find inspiration here…

    Very elegant! I love the chargers and the dinner plates. Those snowflakes hanging from the chandelier are so pretty. The poinsettia table cloth is very elegant as well. Thanks for sharing, Bonnie. 🙂

  7. Gorgeous! One of the prettiest table scapes you’ve ever posted. I especially love what she did with her chandelier. And I’m very interested in those dragonfly chairs, do you know anything about where she might have found them?

    • Hi Robin… Thanks so much! As for the chairs/dining set, I bought them 15 years ago at a local furniture store. If memory serves me, they’re from the Tommy Bahama collection.

  8. What a stunning tablescape Bonnie put together! I love the icicles. Thanks for hosting the party each week Susan! I hope you have a lovely day:)

  9. Absolutely lovely setting! The plates and chargers, the napkins! So pretty! Thank you for hosting this week and sharing with us!

  10. How beautiful! I love all the snowflakes…Christine

  11. I love those plates!! Wonderful winter table! Thanks for the Thursday table top fun Susan~

  12. I love those wonderful champagne plates Susan! Thanks for sharing Bonnie’s festive New Year’s table 🙂

  13. This is an absolutely gorgeous tablescape. It is so warm and inviting. You did a fabulous job!

  14. What a fun table. Those plates are perfect for New Years. I love her photos with the blue hour, especially against the white frosty table!
    Thanks always for hosting this great party! Have a wonderful week!

  15. Santa looks more like the wizard from Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. Too cute. I love the idea of hanging things from the chandelier to incorporate the whole dining room into the theme.

    I was so excited yesterday and couldn’t wait for today then I realized I don’t know how to upload a regular pic. Our tablescape for Easter. It’s so cute.

  16. I discovered this when just taking random pics from inside my foyer towards my door and from dining area with windows and always noticed the blue sky. I always did this right as the sun was going down around 6:15 my time. It does not last long but i love the look!!! Glad you discovered it. I will def get the app for my phone! Wish i knew how to link my pics to your posts. I have issues with it. 🙁

    • I need to look for that app, too! There’s a site online that tells you exactly when the Blue Hour is, too.
      Lisa, just add a line at the end of your post saying something like: “I’m participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch” and make it a link back to the party and you should be able to link up using the blue “Add your link” button that you’ll find at the end of the party post here at BNOTP. You’ll find a bit more information about linking up here: https://betweennapsontheporch.net/metamorphosis-monday/ Email me if you have any questions…I’m glad to help.

  17. Bonnie’s table truly sparkles. As I look out the window this morning, the windows are sparkling with rain drops. It is bitter cold here for certain!
    The New Year’s plates with a champagne theme are so cute. I’ve not seen any plates specific to New Year’s.
    Been thinking of you, Susan. I know it is a difficult time. Sending big hugs your way.

  18. Your feature awesome. Love the chairs…

    TY a bunch Susan for hosting…

    Njoy the day.


  19. Every one of her touches is just right. I very much like the magic of the snowflakes and the chandelier.

    Everything about these pictures are beautifully done! From the table settings to the Blue Hour it is all absolutely wonderful! To add to your idea of removing the Santa for a New Years Eve dinner party, I would suggest a collection of clocks gathered from around the house and used as a centerpiece. If there were alarm clocks in the mix, they could be set to go off at mid-night! What fun!

  21. Many thanks to Susan for graciously sharing my table and hosting this wonderful, inspiring blog. ♥ Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

  22. Stunning tablescape, very COOL ! Keep Christmas in your heart year round.

  23. Manufacturer of those fabulous chairs

  24. Those New Year’s plates are fantastic! I hang snowflakes almost exactly like that on my chandelier for Christmas, too!

  25. Thank you for sharing Bonnie, The table setting is wonderful. I love winter tables and this one is one of the prettiest yet. I think the icy/snowy chandelier is what puts this table over the top. I have been infatuated with decorated chandeliers this year. I hope to have a chandelier to decorate for next year.

  26. “Ooh, la, la!!” That was just beautiful!! franki

  27. Thanks for the party Susan! I’m always thrilled when I have a tablescape post and can share it with you on Thursdays! Liz http://www.HometoCottage.com
