New Years Eve Table for One

Yes, the last 25 days of Santascapes was a lot of fun, but it's time to move on.....Here's our New Years Eve Table for One:
Over view of the table

The place setting - Pat used an appetizer plate as the bread/butter plate

Gold flatware is used to match the charger and gold on the plates

We have this pattern in both teal and plum. We had to buy it at before our own TJMaxx opened up this year.....YES! finally a TJMaxx....

Bargain of the year.....Pat found the dinner plates and appetizer plates at TJMaxx just before Christmas

As most of you know, we do not have a lot of stores to buy from within a three/four hour driving radius - these gold leaf chargers were bought at Costco years ago

Glitzy and bold.....not something Pat would normally use, but the color is just right

From Pier 1 this year, the napkin ring is elegant 

Pat used short crystal candle holders with white candles

No champagne this year.....just a good bottle of wine in a crystal wine coaster
