A glamorous and crafty New Year’s Eve
CONTRIBUTED BY GLORIBELL LEBRON
If you are planning on throwing a party to celebrate the New Year’s Eve, remember to do it with some glitz and glam. A glamorous fest doesn’t have to be expensive to be a total success. And for that, today I’m sharing with you some simple ideas to incorporate in your table décor for a fabulous evening of farewell to a fabulous year with friends and family.
This year I’m making a statement with a golden palette. Gold is an elegant color that we tend to relate with success and good health. So it seems to be a very fit selection for this kind of party. My centerpiece is going to be a made of some gold and brown Christmas decorations. I also placed tiny pine-cones that I previously spray painted and beautiful pears that seem to be covered with tiny crystals. When building this centerpiece I took into consideration the sizes of the pieces. In the center I placed 3 Christmas ornamental balls and surrounded them with the medium size accents (pears, jingle bells and and crystal walnuts). To fill some blank spaces, the painted pine cones were used.
A natural accent on the napkin
Natural cotton (still on its twig) seems to be happening as decoration accent during these Holidays. If you can’t find it on stores, I have an inexpensive solution. Just take the regular cotton ball and place it inside a seed. In my example I used Ranunculus seeds, but you can also used the cupule of an acorn. With a glue gun, I pasted the cotton ball inside the seed. To add a more realistic look, I also glue a piece of twig and some dry leaves I lightly spray painted with gold.
A runner made out of leaves
No runner, no problem. To add an extra pizzazz to the table, I made a runner using brown packing paper. For this I measured the width and length and later cut a strip of paper (keeping in mind that the width will have to be narrower than the actual size of the table as runners often are). After this, I freehand drew several leaves, side by side until the desire design was achieved. Spray paint with gold (yes, again!) and with a brown marker (here PrimaColor) I traced the borders of each of the leaves. The best part of this runner is that you don’t have to worry about the stains. A huge advantage!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this 3 in 1 tutorial and may this New Year be filled with big opportunities but above all, great health!
