After celebrating New Year’s Eve with lots of champagne and sparkles, one of our favorite traditions is to cook a great meal for our family while ringing in the new year. Party planner extraordinaire, Tara Guérard so kindly put together a simple tablescape for us that uses remaining Christmas decor for an intimate New Year’s Dinner. She also created four different place settings that you can easily DIY and shared her favorite entertaining tips with us.
Start by working with what you have! Gather some fresh fruit — in this case Tara used pears — and leftover pine clippings from the tree, garland or yard. Give them a coat of gold spray paint and let dry outside for 24 hours.
