On the Dot January 3, 2013
They say that wearing polka dots on New Year’s Eve will bring good fortune as circles are a symbol of prosperity. Done.
I don’t know if the same goes for your home but I’m not taking any chances. This year, I also dressed my nest with polka dots and displayed circular objects around Maison Epperson.
Maison Epperson is on topiary steroids for the New Year! I love displaying them around the apartment!
The Marimekko throw pillows I bought from my trip to Guam finally got some showtime!
New Year’s Eve dinner is just as celebratory as Christmas dinner. It’s all about creating a festive tablescape for the whole family to enjoy.
In keeping with the polka dots theme, I used the new Marimekko porcelain plates In Good Company designed by Sami Ruotsalainen I got in Guam.
I propped faux berry topiaries on mint julep goblets and used them as centerpiece. The simplicity of the topiaries balance the decadent tableware.
Remember my my DIY holly arrangement two years ago?
New Year brunch set-up:
I wanted to create a sparkling and festive tablescape to ring in the new year without looking ghetto. A black, white, and silver theme seems appropriate for brunch.
Fruits for the New Year as centerpiece
Same plate, different placemat, stemware and flatware. It’s amazing how changing the colors of your table accessories can totally change the look of your table setting!
Shine bright like a diamond this 2013!!!
I did my best to attract good fortune and abundance this year. Now it’s all about preparing for the responsibilities they entail. I’m ready!!!
