Celebrating New Years Eve Tablescape

In between huge storms of rain and hail [FYI: I am not complaining about the rain - we need it, but it came at an very inconvenient time], having no electricity (because of loose wires) or heat or hot water or phone all day, with electricians coming and going, the Utility company with a huge truck blocking the street and men working for hours in and around my house, and then the Internet/Cable/Phone guy showing up after the power was back on, Pat managed to get a table set before she had to go home to set her own table for a party she was having. What a experience!!!! When disaster strikes......everything seems to go down or fall apart at the same time. Well, anyway, everything is up and running now. Here's the table that my dear sister managed to set:
Classy, glitzy, and silver - that's the theme of this week's table (you can't see the water, mud, wires, etc. on the hardwood floors throughout the house.....)

Pat placed the napkins on a slight angle

Flatware is highly polished and ultra-modern stainless steel "Fluence" by Oneida

I couldn't resist these dishes this season - from Pier 1.

Pat paired the new dinnerware from Pier 1 with another purchase from there two years ago - the stainless steel charger has a decorative etched edge

Since the table needed just a "bit" more glitz, Pat used these interesting woven metallic place mats

Neither Pat nor I could resist the stainless steel drinkware - also from Pier 1. I gotta stay out of that store.......well, maybe.....

Stainless steel candle holders with crystals - from TJMaxx this Christmas season. Pat sprinkled imitation "diamonds" around the table to add more "show"

Pat found these heavy votive holders at Tuesday Morning years ago
