New Years Eve Dinner Party Tableware and Decorations

What I love about celebrating New Year’s Eve is that it marks a fresh and brand new start. A new calendar or diary, with empty pages to fill with new plans, a new notebook for new to-do lists and ideas, a new list of resolutions, goals and ambitions, and the sense that you can almost create a ‘new me’ as it were. For this coming year, my list of resolutions keeps growing, but it currently includes:

  • Spend more time with old friends, and make the effort to catch up with the people I love most.
  • Get out more, join some sort of new community or society or take up a new hobby, and start meeting new people.
  • Worry less about the people in my life that leave me feeling empty, inferior or lonely.
  • Worry less about what people think, in general.
  • Fight my FOMO and worry less about wanting to do everything all the time (I get an irrational sense of sadness and disappointment if I’m not invited along to absolutely everything, which is totally ridiculous).
  • Find a permanent position by the end of the year (I’ve been freelancing as a journalist for two years now!)
  • Do at least one big and meaningful charitable thing, whether it’s adopting another dog, adopting a child refugee (okay, this one’s unlikely), or volunteering abroad for a month.
  • Maintain and grow this blog <3

This is also the first year that my resolutions don’t include some prodding ‘lose lots of weight’ or ‘work out more’ goal, and I’m proud to be starting 2017 with a welcome sense of body confidence (despite being the same weight I’ve been for the past ten years – a size which I never used to be comfortable with in my post-anorexia years). And, aside from the relief of starting a brand spanking squeaky clean new year, I’m also looking forward to this coming New Year’s Eve, as (like many of us) I’ll be glad to see the back of 2016! So, BRING IT ON! I hope you all enjoy welcoming in the new year, hopefully with a glass (or bottle) of bubbly! For anyone hosting or attending a New Year’s Eve dinner party (or any dinner party at any time for that matter), here are some great tableware, table setting and table decoration ideas to get that festive atmosphere going! From gold tableware and bar accessories to silver star themed tablescapes or pops of multi-coloured confetti, there’s something to suit every home.

Now is also a great time to buy any left over Christmas crackers, as the most luxurious ones are less than a quarter of the price (but hurry as they’re selling out fast!), they’re fun to pop at the table, and the more stylish and luxurious ones can look super snazzy as part of the tablescape. Or just stock up anyway, and save them for next year! xoxo
