New Year's Tablescape

I am designing a New Year's Tablescape to share with you for 2013. I am leaving to travel to see my Dad in Illinois and won't be back for a few weeks so this is my last post for a while.

I am using Lenox Holiday Nouveau Gold salad plates placed on Lenox Eternal China dinner plates.

The napkins are also the Lenox Holiday Nouveau pattern with Lenox Eternal Gold flatware. I love the gold trim on the plates and the flatware. Such a beautiful holiday look this brings to the table. These pieces are sitting on Lenox placemats which have such a delicate feel. 

The glassware for the table features clear Fostoria goblets and amber wine glasses. I choose the Fostoria because it was my Mom's favorite and the amber wine glasses for their color, hoping to accent the gold rim on the China and flatware. What do you think?

The centerpiece was created using winter white glittered magnolias, gold and silver glittered leaves, white candles in crystal candlesticks, gold and silver stemmed pieces, plus two types of pine cones.

Additional candlesticks are added to each end of the centerpiece for a little more beauty and elegance.

My centerpiece theme is carried to my sideboard with the magnolias, pine cones and silver stems. Two white candles in Lenox candlesticks are reflecting in the silver platter. Two pillar candles are used with silver candle holders.

Thanks for always stopping by my blog and leaving such kind messages. I hope 2013 brings you peace and happiness - Judy.

Note: See you in a few weeks when I return from my visit to Illinois.

    I was checking the net to learn what everyone is up to and thinking how I don't wish to end Christmas or get over with, like some say...

New Years or not, I hope that someone will get to sit at this beautiful table. They'll be blown away! This one of my favorites of your designs. The magnolias say romance and rich to me. Now, I'm going back to look at it all over again. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Happy New Year and have a wonderful trip! Cherry Kay
