Whether you are throwing a big holiday party or gathering with a few friends to toast the new year, this is a great time to collect some festive decor. I was inspired by the photo below - I love the combination of the vintage plates, contemporary table runner and traditional settings. Below are some suggestions and DIY ideas on how you could re-imagine this elegant style.
I was surprised I couldn't find a similar table runner on Etsy - I found about every other pattern. It would be pretty easy to make, even for me - and I don't sew. There are several DIY tutorials on Apartment Therapy. You can order similar fabric from here.
I also found this pretty lattice patterned one below:
You can find some incredible vintage table settings and glassware on Etsy for a steal.
I like the gold animals that are on the place settings you could spray paint plastic animals from the dollar store for a similar look - or create these cute animal drink stirrers. I found these on Pocketful of Dreams blog. She sells them in her Etsy shop or you can follow her DIY instructions.
