Set the Table for New Years Eve

28 December, 2012 — Leave a comment

Throwing a New Years Eve dinner party is your chance to really go over the top with decorations.
Play with it and have fun – maybe think of a theme or subject your guests will appreciate.

I would advice you to stick to a three color palette and then I think you can add almost object.
More colors are usually more confusing to the eye than more shapes.
Other than that: no rules!

I have browsed the net for inspiration on how to decorate my own table for the last day of the year and these favorites I would like to share with you (click on images for larger view):

Don`t forget to set the clock!
