New Year’s Eve theme

An amazing party not only has a great menu, but festive dinner table setting. You are going to need a theme – my favourite for New Year’s eve would have to be Glitz and glam with lots of sparkles. What colour palette are you going with? Great examples for New Year’s Eve include themes of:

  • Timeless elegance with gold, silver and white, or
  • Bold and Beautiful with black, white and gold.

It is time to take out your special dinner sets, silverware and ironed tablecloth! Don’t just stop at decorating. Think about what music you would like to play on New Year’s eve as the dining ambiance is just as important as the meal. Music is a great way to add warmth and a celebration vibe to any party.

The spirit of New Year

The new year is an opportunity to reflect over the past year and set new goals for 2022. It is also a great time to give back. Christmas and new year are a beautiful time of the year for many and terribly hard for others battling tough times. Consider donating money or food to a local charity or food bank if you are in a position to do so. If you find yourself with excess food or choose to purchase items to help people in need, they can also be donated while fresh.

 

Italian Spoon wishes you and your families a very special Christmas and safe New Year!
