A Glittery New Years Eve Affair

Christmas is in the books and there is one last party 
that we will be hosting, here at Maison Decor.
Its the end of 2015, time for pause and reflection
and a time for getting ourselves ready for a brand new year.
Its time to celebrate!
Throwing a party is a great way to celebrate any occasion and its
certainly the best way to celebrate those who are special in your life.
The nice thing about a party is that when your guests walk through
the door, they are already in a great mood!  All you have to do is set the scene
for all to party and have fun.  As always, I get a basic theme and then gather items 
to decorate the room and table setting.  For this New Years Eve, I liked the idea
of glittery metallics with the boldness of black and white.
 Since this is a buffet style service, that means setting up so those can 
help themselves with ease.  Silver trays hold gold rimmed wine glasses
and punch glasses for the Holiday Moscow Mules I will be serving.
 Gold lusterware plates will be used for piling on hors d'oeuvres.
Everything and anything in my butlers pantry that had gold would be
gracing the table for the glittery affair.   
(Haha, I wish I had a butlers pantry....)
 Adding sources of ambient lighting will make the table dance at night.
Lighting is always important, so include candles, votives and the new wired lights that
run off of battery packs to create ambience for your table.
Dishes with gold rims are stacked in a rattan tray, which is on top of 
a gold flecked runner, which is layered on top of the black and white tablecloth.
Layers make a table interesting!
 Its not really a table cloth though, the black and white is a bolt of Sunbrella
that I just rolled out over the table to create a dramatic backdrop. You can 
use sheets, quilts, and basic fabric by the yard to make your own table cloth.
Black and white checkered ribbon was woven through the chandelier and 
over mirrors and my mora clock to reinforce the black and white scheme.
 A package of cardboard stars and Happy New Year letters found at HomeGoods
 was perfect for the party decor, in black, white and gold with glittery edges.
All the chairs are pulled away from the table for the buffet and lined up in groupings.
In front of the French doors are a pair of slipper chairs to create another 
spot for guests to sit, sip and talk.  I can picture everybody already here!!
All that is left to do now is to set the food out,  pop the champs 
and make a batch or two of Holiday Moscow Mules when the big evening arrives.
And answer the door!
