Tabletop Tuesday: A White New Year’s Eve

white NYE table

I spotted this simple but pretty new year’s eve table over on pinterest. (Do you pin? It is revolutionizing the way I keep track of images and links.) I love the all white color scheme. It’s a great way to capitalize on the idea of starting fresh with a new year. Plus, it’s a snap to pull together.

I love the mismatched white chairs around the table. Recreate the look by spray painting thrifted wood chairs all white. Or pick up these great ikea stools in white, they are a steal!

I also love the barely-there white lace table cloth. It adds just a bit of texture and dimension. Check out a local thrift shop for white lace curtains and layer them over a table for the same look.

The silver New Year’s Eve banner would also be an easy DIY project. Pre-cut letters covered in some spray adhesive, dusted with silver glitter and strung on some pretty string. Working with glitter can get a little messy, but I’d be willing to risk some mess in this case.

I’d keep the white theme going with the menu as well. Less risk in staining all those pretty white details, too! Maybe a shaved fennel salad to start, followed by little bowls of potato leek soup, then a lovely Riesling poached trout with roasted parsnips. For dessert, a glorious coconut cake or course!
