However like time, and the marking of time, the day approached and I geared up for another 'holiday'.
New Years is a time of reflection. We look back on the past year and review. The highlights, the good times, the 'what ifs', and try to put it all in perspective for the upcoming year.
Hmmmmm, not unlike my Tablescaping adventures!
For New Years Eve, I thought of reflection - in the silver, white and crystal theme I chose.
Also like my wishes for the New Year, I wanted it to shine even though there were only going to be the four of us, I wanted it to be special and meaningful.
Again, so similar to what I think we all wish for in the coming year.
Welcome to -
New Years Eve at the Junction
This setting reminds me of a Winter 'snowscape'
An all white damask Ralph Lauren tablecloth sets the theme
A silver candelabra lights the setting
with white candles -
the only light in the room
Crystal D'Arques Longshamps wine, water
and champagne flutes lend sparkle
Silver chargers and Oneida silver plate
provide the glow
While white napkins trimmed with a silver band
and a snowflake ring for bling add additional shine
The china is Noritake Adagio
Our wedding china selection

I love the shape of this tea cup
Buffet with champagne punch
Super easy and so yummy

Thanks for dropping by. I always enjoy your visits!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year
filled with love, peace, joy, health, wealth and happiness.
