I know that many of you are busy doing your Christmas shopping and planning for that holiday, but New Year’s Eve is just around the corner!  If you are entertaining on New Year’s Eve, here are some ideas for setting a festive table to ring in 2011.

Take out your good china, pull out your vintage pieces and fancy plates and set a layered table. Quite luxurious!

How about pretty pink for your New Year’s event? The small envelope is used both as a place card and a place to note your New Year’s resolution!

The palette of blue, white and silver is a great antidote to the heavy colors generally used for Christmas decorating.

How about having a little present at every place setting?  It adds a bit of fun (and intrigue) when everyone sits down at the table.

You can’t go wrong with an all white table setting. The little vases of greenery and silver branch are elegant.

Fun idea: scatter small alarm clocks around the room that are  set to go off at midnight!

Feathers are an easy way to add a bit of fun to the table.

    Hi Bev – Aren’t those clocks a clever idea? Figures from Martha Stewart!

    Love the clocks on the mantle!

    Lorraine – Aren’t those clocks fun? I have a hard enough time staying up until midnight, and they would probably wake me up!

  4. I have to say, my favorite is the Martha Stewart “Clocks on a Mantel.”
