New Year Table – Silver and Gold

My holidays never change… my holiday menu never changes and I am completely happy with that… some people call that tradition. I would call it tradition. So for the New Year, we have dinner at home with the family. They can go and have fun after dinner but we have a set menu… and they know to be there!!!


Grilled Lobster with butter
Baked Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Garden Salad

Chocolate Hazelnut Torte

The only thing that changes is the table setting. I decided to have a silver and gold theme… with a white starched tablecloth and napkins. I love the change from all the red and green.

Mercury trees down the middle of the table… with silver garland.

Silver and gold bowls for the melted butter

White plates… start with my daughter’s Christmas Kate Spade china.

Next a white and silver dinner plate… from Target!! You can mix high end china with Target dishes.

We have crackers at New Years Eve… with the paper crowns and jokes. Very funny for New Years.

A faux bois mercury cake plate that will hold the torte. 


The wine glasses hold the white starched napkins. 

I hope you and the children like the table. It is very festive!!!
