Good evening, Ladies, hope the first day of the new year was a good one!
Mine was excellent! I met Alma after Mass for Brunch, gift exchange and a trip to Pier One. We had a great time. I am sorry I am late, but we were having such a good time catching up!
It was dark by the time I got home, so the pictures are suffering.
This was my inspiration for my little table, an adorable Baby New Year sitting on a box. I got them at FactoryDirectCrafts.com, the Irish Santas in last week’s table were from there too. (20% off your order for a few more days)
The box has a harlequin and antique gold pattern, so I thought I would test your eyes with the patterned cloth I made from Duralee fabric.
To give your eyes a break, I used a black placemat with a bead around the edge from West Elm outlet. The plates are from HG.
Flatware is from Horchow and the little white butter domes are from Cmas Tree hop.
Not black tie, but a gold ribbon tied bow tie fashion on a black cotton napkin.
A black footed ribbed glass for our beverage.
The centerpiece is a white cut work compote from CTS filled with greens, baby’s breath, gold filigree spheres and a gold candle and bow.
The Baby sits in a gold ramekin from World Market.
The box says Happy New Year inside, and that is what I truly wish for all of you! May 2014 be kind to all of us!
I am going to take a Blog Break, hope to be back for Laurie’s (Bargain Hunting with Laurie) Valentine’s Party! There will definitely be the 6th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl in March, so start thinking green.
Same rules for Let’s Dish. No word id, a link back to this party, blog name first . Please be sure to visit at least 5 other entries if you link up.
Thanks so much for your visit! See you in a bit!
I am joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday, Diann for Thrifty Things Friday
