An Easy New Year’s Eve Tablescape


Today I am pulling together an easy tablescape for New Year’s Eve with items from the Target dollar spot, grocery store flowers, and things I have around the house.

Hello, my name is Libbie, and I blog over at A Life Unfolding, where I write about all things Design, DIY, and Renovation related. Come over and say hi!

Easy DIY New Year's Eve tablescape.

This year my grown daughters (who both live in Chicago) and I are taking turns hosting holidays for the first time. So my youngest hosted a lovely Thanksgiving, my oldest will host Christmas, and I will host our annual New Year’s Eve party. This get-together will be casual and fun (it’s a pretty fierce game night), but I also want it to be festive and pretty.

Flower Arrangement Tips:

Tape A Grid

Use your tape to make an X-shaped grid on the glasses. The taped grid will give the flowers some added support.

Use the rule of three

I used three flowers in each glass. And it again, when placing the mini ornaments on the runner. The rule of three says that things arranged in odd numbers are more appealing to the human eye. If I were using a larger vase/glass, I would have gone with five flowers.

Use three flowers in each glass plus some greenery.

Here are a few more tips

If you use greenery leftover from Christmas, you may want to mist it or place it in water for an hour or so to revive it. Blot off any excess water and place it on the runner.

Tuck the battery box for the fairy lights under the runner.
