New Years Tablescape

Ah....the New Year has started off well and I'm looking forward to all the many things that are to come. The good as well as the bad because it's in those "down in the valley" times that we learn and become stronger.

So! the first setting for 2012 is my New Years Day Tablescape. I wanted a crisp, clean and classic look so I went with Black, White & Silver.

LINKING TO: Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!
                           The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays!
                          A Stroll Thru Life  for Tabletop Tuesday!

I started with a Black & White Damask material to cover my table.

Black Napkins are from a Thrift Store in Jacksonville, AR
Silver Napkin Rings are from the Goodwill.

I just LOVE these drinking glasses!!
Purchased at the Goodwill here in Louisville for $1.00 each!! (insert squeal here) lol...

Here are my Antique Square Cut Glass Plates that I also purchased at the Goodwill in Arkansas, they were $2.00 each!!

White Square Dinner Plates are from the Dollar Tree!!

The square dishes with the silver lids are from a vintage serving set that I picked up at a Flea Market in Jacksonville, AR 
Inside is a Fortune Cookie!!
This one said "You may lack ambition, but not the ability to succeed" hmmmmm lol......I don't think its a lack of ambition its more like a lack of TIME!!

Square Silver Chargers were purchased at a Flea Market in Jacksonville, AR. 

I wish you all a very happy and blessed New Year!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
