As we come to the close of a year that can easily be described as tumultuous (to say the least), we are all anxious for the changes that 2021 will bring. Among them, hopefully, less stress, sadness, anxiety, and in their place, joy, laughter, socialization. I think this year can be classified as terrible for most, but some much more than others, and when I think about what so many people have gone through I honestly can only be grateful. Yes, the year panned out differently than planned, and I wasn’t able do things I had hoped, or see the people I wanted to, but overall, I am thankful for the lessons learned and finding the silver linings.
One big silver lining was more time for my blog, which has been my baby for almost 5 years now. I love sharing my experiences and my life with you all, and giving you inspiration for your own. An area I think we all want to see more of in 2021 is a time for socialization, with family, friends, and honestly, at this point, anyone! Normally, New Years Eve is a big festivity with said people, to celebrate the past year and anticipate the coming one. Not going to be happening this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still bring meaning to the day and make it special. Whether you’ll be a party of 1 or 8, you can make it memorable with a tablescape that brings warmth and joy, and gives time to reflect on 2020 and look forward to 2021.
Since many of us still have our Christmas decor up through the new year, why not utilize some of it to build the most beautiful table. I love the glitz and glam of Christmas and New Years, and both evoke visions of glitter and gold – so I made that the theme of my New Year’s Eve table! I paired my pink vintage Miss America glassware with plenty of shiny baubles. Mixed metals is a look I love year round, but silver and gold during the holidays is extra magical. Disco ball ornaments, glittery ornaments, shiny stars and pops of pink make this table almost feel like it’s dancing. And let’s face it, the table likely will be the only thing dancing this NYE.
It may look fancy, and I won’t lie, I will probably be dressing up (because I have really missed that this year), but it would be just as acceptable to sit at this disco-ball table in sweats. It’s about the meal and the magic of the moment, not the outfit you wear. Take time to reflect on the past and dream of the future, and enjoy your favorite, whether it’s lobster or fast food takeout. I wish you all a safe, healthy and HAPPY New Year!
