Vintage Clocks New Year’s Eve Party – Dining Room & Tablescape

In my last post I talked a lot about my inspiration for this vintage clocks New Year’s Eve party dining room & tablescape. (I also did a tutorial for these easy peasy plate chargers) I am so happy with how this room turned out! Thank goodness because I would hate to think all that time spent setting every clock to midnight had gone to waste.

It has a cozy vintage and festive feel without the glitter and sparkle. I don’t mind glitter and sparkle in small doses. It just wouldn’t have felt like me if I did a sparkly New Year’s Eve setting.

Before I go into detail about this design, can we just talk about the word “tablescape?” Yes I used in it my title because I think that’s how people (myself included) search for table setting inspiration these days. But the word “tablescape” kinda makes me want puke. Anyone else?

Okay, back to the dining room.

I made DIY “vintage” flash cards with the words “happy,” “new,” and “year” as a part of the centerpiece. I’m not great with computer software. I just don’t have the patience for it. I’m like your grandma. For real. I say all that as a preface to saying I used Microsoft PAINT to create these. I started in Gimp but quickly became frustrated. So in MS Paint (lol), add a rounded rectangle shape to your page. In the center of your rectangle, type your desired word in Times New Roman. I printed them on cream colored heavy weight card stock and cut along the line of the rectangle taking off the line completely so that it wasn’t on my final design. So much cheaper than buying the real deal on Etsy.

I tied tiny vintage looking clock trinkets to the napkins.

 

The countdown numbers are from my vintage church attendance board.

Here’s a photo without the candles lit. I wish I had taken a few more:

Is NYE a holiday you get into? Do you typically host a party or go out?

Thanks for dropping in guys! I hope you have a fun and safe New Year’s.
