New Year's Centerpiece • Gold and Black

The change from Christmas to New Year's is quick so my centerpiece update must be quick as well. Santa certainly helped this year.

Thanks to my husband, under the tree I found a candelabra that I had blogged about earlier here.  I love its Scandinavian roots, modern lines and combination of black and wood. It was a natural to be used for New Year's. I combined that with a Santa surprise from my daughter. She gave me a set of 6 off-center tilt bowls from Crate and Barrel

We did use them for snacks at our Christmas party but I used them differently for New Year's. As I packed away some of the Christmas decor I saved all the gold balls and I filled the tilt bowls. That added the glam required for a New Year centerpiece.

I grabbed a length of black fabric from the stash to create a quick runner.  I wanted to get a gold ribbon about 4" wide to run down the center under all the elements but New Year's Eve is here and trip to the mall is not going to happen. The tablescape will stay as is.

And it is showcased with a new addition to our art collection.  I gave David a woodblock print by artist Lynita Shimizu title "My Happy Place - And Then It Snowed!". We love the stormy energy. I have blogged about Lynita here and you can see more of her work here.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy New Year!
