White Table Setting for NYE

A simple way to create an elegant table setting for your New Years Day party is to use an all white color scheme.

The all white theme represents a fresh, new start of the New Year, and lays the foundation for a stylish and chic party. Plus it’s fairly easy and inexpensive to collect all white items to set your table.

I kept my table very simple and only used an all white tablecloth, plates, silverware, and centerpiece. To create the centerpiece, I got clear crystal candlesticks and used all white candles to bring everything together. To add a little sparkle, I purchased a roll of thick silver, sparkly ribbon and laid it across the center of the table, under the candles.

With just a few simple items, you’re able to create a sophisticated table setting that creates the backdrop for the delicious New Years Day party food.
