New Year´s Eve Table


Lots of candles... 



I really like the contrast between the delicate tulips and the rough fir...

As promised, here´s how the New Year´s Eve table turned out this year. I must say it was a little challenging cause the table is extra wide, we had to put two tables next to each other to make room for all fifteen of us. Yes, maybe a luxury problem instead of a small table with too little space! But actually it can be a bit of a problem to make it look like it has enough decor without overdoing it and to make the two tables look like one (the tablecloth was not big enough so had to have one on each table). I tried to base the decor on contrasts between rough and delicate and used things as pine cones, flowers and fir. My main focus was on the flower arrangement since I love flowers and really enjoy to try out new ways to combine. I also like to keep the decorations quite low to make sure that everyone around the table can get eye contact, but at the same time some variation of the hight. And last but not least: candles, lots of candles to set the mood...
