Happy New Year!

Start the year on a high note with these fresh tabletop decor ideas!

 

Indulge your dramatic side with daring tablescapes as you celebrate friends new and old, the highs of the past year, and excitement for the year to come.

Rely on wintry colors—black counts too!—paired with a little shimmer and a lot of sparkle. For textures and materials, our favorite winter table settings take cues from our favorite party attire. Sleek shell pieces that look like jewelry, metallic wovens, and pebbled leathers will lift your table to new heights as you and your guests ring in the new year.

Cheers to a joyous 2022!

Pearlescent

Craving a decadent New Year’s dinner by the glow of candlelight? Indulge in pearly place settings in cool, silvery hues.

Start with a solid linen tablecloth and layer our dazzling Pearl Placemats in a coordinating hue on top. Give your go-to glassware and cloth napkins a home with coordinating Pearl Coasters and Napkin Rings, opulent when dressed up with fine china or downplayed with simple, white plates.

Leather more your thing? These Split Reversible Placemats shimmer in combinations of pearl and silver or blue and silver—so pick your favorite side or mix both color combinations together for some added visual interest. Pair them with these silver Rope Napkin Rings or Pearl Cluster Napkin Rings to elevate your favorite fringed napkins while adding elegant textures to your table.

To top it all off, polish up your silver service and pile platters high with apples, figs, and olives. Dot the center of your table with simple vases of white dahlias or ranunculus, sprinkle in some pearly baubles leftover from your tree, and your tabletop design is party ready!

Shimmer and Shine

Desiring a more dramatic party? Black feels especially apropos for a winter soiree. Ground your table with this rich color and enliven it with shimmery and sparkly accents. For a crisp foundation, we favor metallic tablecloths and go bold with our dinnerware. Black and gold-rimmed china, smoke glass coupes, and flatware in matte finishes up the ante atop our Sparkle Placemats in black and gold.

Want a truly kaleidoscopic table? Set out these Celestial Placemats and coasters made of iridescent crushed shells. With green, blue, black, and creamy shimmer, these unique pieces look perfect with almost any accent color!

Neatly wrap each napkin in Sparkle Napkin Rings—again, available in black and gold—or our jet black Rope Napkin Rings.
Deep purple foliage and fruits and a carafe of your favorite winter wine make a spectacularly moody centerpiece.

Rosy Future

Looking toward the year ahead with excitement? Bring those positive vibes to your holiday tablescape! Nothing creates a sense of optimism quite like pairings of pink and white, so build your table around this cheery color combination. Start with a tablecloth in a pinkish hue or simple white, and layer our Pearl Placemats (available in both rose and white) on top.

Go monochromatic with your placemats and linens for a chic, traditional look, or mix pink and white elements together for added flair. With these placemats as a colorful base, we love using decadent fine china, edged in gold and silver. For an even bolder look, consider pulling out your favorite geometric or floral china, preferably a pattern with pinks in the mix. Add your favorite flatware, set your glassware atop our Pearl Coasters, and turn your attention to the accessories.

Like jewelry for your table, our Pearl Napkin Rings and Pearl Cuff Napkin Rings add a glamorous finish to each place setting.

Set a practical centerpiece for your New Year’s affair. One of charcuterie staples, simple vases of tiger lilies, and spectacular serving pieces lining the table is sure to stand out!
