New Years Eve Sparkle

Hi everybody well we made it thru Christmas and now New Years Eve is upon us. I hope everyone  had a Joyful Christmas with lots of family, food,fun and memories.

I made this table in silver and golds.
with tiny little pops of gold here and there

A pretty little candlelight for ambience

I added some silver and gold tinsel for sparkly bling you have to have champaign

Lace and fancy silver ware and lots of time to remind us what is ahead or what we left behind

 golden fruit and stars a shine
tic tock the new year is almost here

Hats to make merry with and party on

 White glass trees in  under a cloche with sparkles and baubles to shine sit in the center 
I added these little clock pieces to the front of the timepiece it matches my napkin rings

I used paper scrap book for my inspiration (Sorry couldn't find time tablecloths any where)

 I used gold and winter white napkins with a paper time horn and clock faces marking almost midnight

Well I want to wish everyone a wonderful New Years and hope for those of you who had some troubles and hard times this past year a better year filled with new hopes and dreams and a whole lot of Love. For those who are traveling on New Years Eve please have a safe and prosperous New Years. Love Susie. I'm participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. confessions of a plate addict,Jointhe scoop.and Funky Junk Interiors so stop on by with me.HAPPY NEW YEARS

Christmas and Santa is coming

I created this intimate little table for two that my husband and I can sit at when watching tv I just wanted to use these plates I have gotten and loved

I so love the red and green colors

maybe just some icecream for dessert

 A present to open later

                                                                                           dessert by candlelite works for me

Well Santa is coming in just four days so I made a table to welcome him with

I got these plates last year at local GW it was included in my big stash that was 75% off everything so all four plates were 1.29

and these lil santa's came from Michael's on clearance each one is different

 these little guys were so cute I invited them home with me
Santa brings lots of presents let me think here have I been naughty or nice?

I made these napkin rings that I just found on Pinterest LOVE them

my inspiration came from this glass Santa he was the first thing I saw on my splurge at GW last year I put a colored lite inside him to make him lite up

plate number two each one has a different pattern on the rim and a different Santa on each.Don't you just love a Dancing Santa?

 He sits upon a raised red cake plate with snow all around him holding a bell to announce his arrival.
plate number three and Santa number three

here are numbers four of both Santa's

 this is not pink
I left a Santa cookie cutter for each quest or to hold a nametag at

here are some shots of the whole table

This Santa was a gift to me many years ago from a very dear friend that has passed on from Pancreatic cancer. I get to think of her every year when I put this guy out

I made my own little tree I wasn't going to get one  what is the sense to that when I am alone and while at Lowe's one night they were cutting trees and throwing scraps into a bin and  a customer said"hey they are Free why don't you take some home throw some lites on them and decorate your hutch with some" so I gathered  alot of branches and stuck them in a pot with some lites and decorated with napkin rings I had sitting in a jar. I don't think it looks to bad of a Charlie brown tree does it? then they were giving these log slices away (come on guys Michael's sells them for $2.00 a piece) great for coasters in a rustic theme. just be sure to dry them out in the oven for a couple of hours to dry off the sap. Pretty good job if I do say so myself. wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
