Before I present you with my first tablescape of 2018, let me encourage you to get creative with your tables this year. It doesn't take a lot to arrange an attractive and inviting table. It need not be over-the-top. It can be simple; you can use what you have on hand, and make a cozy and delightful table, as I have done here for a New Year's Day breakfast.
It has been cold here, and I'm talking single digits, so I have been embracing all of my fuzzy pillows and throws. This morning, as I shivered my way from the bedroom into the kitchen to fire up the coffee, it made me smile to see such a warm and inviting table, with my favorite fuzzy throw at center. Here, practicality has been tossed out the window. Today it is all about fun, and a meal at a warm and cozy winter table like this one is going to be a meal that is enjoyed.
This was very simple to put together. I made use of the silver houses and twig deer that I had on my Christmas table, as well as some favorite wooden chargers from Pier 1, topping the stack of plates with this delightful clock plate, representing the New Year, a part of the Old Curiosity Shop set of dishes by Royal China.
I'm going to have to do an entire post on that set of dishes, because each dish has a different, Dickensian drawing on it, making this one of the most charming sets of dishes that I own.
For now, pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.
Happy New Year, everybody!
