New Year’s Eve Dinner Table Decorations

For a New Year’s Eve dinner table theme, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I looked for items I had on hand.

First, this is a cocktail party with appetizers so I set the centerpiece in the back corner of the table.

Add Dinner Table Height

I added a box covered with a neutral table cloth to add some height to the centerpiece.

In addition, you can add a serving dish here as well.

Next, I added some of my frosty, gold and silver bottle brush trees. I also have a tall church that I use for Christmas so I just turned it facing backwards and added a clock face to the backside.

The Count Down

Next, I added a collection of vintage clocks and clock faces to the table. The clock faces remind us of the count down to the New Year.

I started collecting vintage clocks and faces while out Thrifting with the
Gals
and they really came in handy. I found these that would be fun as well.

Some of my vintage brass candle sticks and a string of fairy twinkle lights add some light to the table setting.

To add even more sparkle, I added a glass cloche over one of the smaller clocks as another table decoration idea.

A bottle of champagne and a few champagne flutes and you are ready for the party to begin.

Finally, the only thing I splurged on, except food, was a few 2022 Flags. However, I only spent $3.00. Not bad for a New Year’s Eve Party.

Make the Dinner Table Fun

A fakery pie from Everything Dawn added a touch of humor to the table as well.

I wonder how many people will try to cut a slice?

In addition, the cute mouse is trying to keep everyone away from the cheese on this charcuterie board! Do you think my guests will get my humor?

Spread the Food Around

Although my table allows for plenty of food, I’m spreading the food around my dining area and kitchen. Everyone always congregates around the table and I like to keep everyone moving.

In addition, I like to add a variety of heights to the table by using plate racks, tied trays and boxes underneath table cloths.


The Main Course

Although this months New Year’s Eve party is mostly hors d’oeuvres, the main dish should be hearty since guest will most likely be here until midnight.
