New Year's Eve Table Centerpiece

Do you ever have this idea and just hope it all comes together the way you see it in your mind?
That was me yesterday.
Knowing I would be putting away all the Christmas decor, I still wanted some fun shiny snow inspired winter decorations around the house.  Usually I am standing at the door of Target the day after Christmas waiting for them to open.  Not this year.  Chasing a 4 year old and staying up late playing an elf  watching for Santa, wore this mid-forties momma out!  I did however manage to get everyone out mid-afternoon to scout what was left.   
Lucky for me, I found just what I needed for my New Year's Eve centerpiece vision!
 My assortment of Goodwill candle holders, along with the white crocheted runner (another Goodwill find last year) and stash of white candles were my base.
The blue trim on the white runner had me thinking blue, white, silver and glass.
The 1st item I found was at Hobby Lobby - the tiny silver star garland ($2).  I almost picked up silver bead garland, but snagged the last strand of stars instead.  So glad I did!  I {heart} them.
Next stop, Target.
Target gave me my hint of blue, with the blue tiny star burst tinsel garland ($1).
I also picked up blue and silver snowflakes at Target (50 cents each color for a pack of four) 
The silver tray is another Target deal marked down 50% off for $7.  I've been looking for a silver tray for a while and was tickled pink (or would it be blue?) to find this one at a steal!
Next stop was the much loved by us thrifty decor and crafty types...the Dollar Tree.
Look closely, you see the white felt snowflakes lining the silver tray?  Dollar Tree HALF off!
A whopping 50 cents.  Along with all the blue and silver bells (8 to a pack), same price.
My fellow shopper con'ed me into a Walmart stop.
At least I found another item while battling my way through the buggies and crowd - the small silver Mirror Ball ornaments in the center candle globe for $1.50.  Mirror Balls just scream New Year's right?!?
A few of the details:
A wine goblet tuned upside down for a candle holder.  To add interest, I stuffed a white snowflake wrestled that sucker under there   from my old Christmas stash under the glass; along with  bells and one of the tiny silver ornaments.
The ornaments and bells are in a wide mouth candle holder sitting atop another Goodwill candle holder (nope I didn't even glue it ...cause I'm daring like that). 
The cute tiny fingertip towels say it all...
We don't see much of the fluffy white stuff in Georgia.
I think we are ready for a little late night New Year's Eve celebrating....
by candle light.  I love it.
How are you celebrating New Year's Eve?  
There is still time to toss together something shiny and fun on a thrifty budget.
Total spent for my centerpiece ... $14
I'm playing with Blue Cricket Design for Show and Tell and Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Thursday.

  5. Just gorgeous! I have those blue and silver snowflakes at my house -- love 'em! I used blue and silver in my dining room last Christmas, as those were my son and daughter-in-law's wedding colors, and they married five days after Christmas. Such a pretty color scheme!
