Traditional Blue and Silver New Years Vignette [Christmas Vignette recycle]

Hi friends! I hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday. Mine was wonderful. Santa spoiled my little one. She had a blast on her first Christmas. Of course, her favorite gift of all was the wrapping paper! It’s amazing how becoming a parent brings a whole new magic to Christmas.

Now that Christmas is over, I’m so ready to ring in the new year! 2012 has brought so many joys including a big move to sunny California, a gorgeous baby girl, and of course this blog! Now, I have SO much to look forward to in the new year and I can’t wait.

Today, I want to show you my New Years Vignette.

New Years Vignette

One thing about this vignette: I wanted to be able to quickly transform it from Christmas to New Years. With not much time between holidays I didn’t want to have to do a lot to mix it up.

Remember my Red & White Christmas Vignette? As you can see, I left the mirror and garland. And because of the neutral white, I was able to easily replace the reds with silver and blue to come up with traditional New Years look.

I took out the white tray and replaced it with this silver tray I picked up at the Dollar Tree. I swapped out the red vase fillers for silver and blue. One great thing about this was that everything I bought for the vignette I was able to get on holiday clearance! I filled the vases with silver and blue bows, tinsel, and silver bulbs.

I took out the white candle holders and replaced them with dollar store wine glasses flipped upside down. I also removed the red ribbon around the candles and added some chevron glitter tape. Isn’t it so fun?

The centerpiece is my favorite part! I cut out the “2013″ onto some silver shimmery scrapbook paper and placed them with mini clothespins that I had lying around. To make the clothespins look more appealing, I added some of the same chevron glitter tape to them. Aren’t they adorable?

I had some extra snowflakes and bulbs so I just placed them around the table.

I love this quick vignette makeover. It made such an easy transition from Christmas to New Years with not much work and very little cost!

Now, we are ready to ring in the new year! Come on 2013, we’re ready!

  1. This is perfection. I have a feeling I am going to be featuring you lots ;) I love it!!

  2. What a great idea to turn the wine glasses upside down! I love how you used different types of glassware but pulled it all together with the colors, chevrons and snowflakes. So festive!

  3. I love it! It looks great and perfect for New Year’s!

  4. Super cute. I love the transition from Christmas to New Year! Keep up the good work.

    Here visiting from Sassy Apple’s Make it Monday link party. :)

  5. Chelsea, that’s adorable. I love love how you were able to transition it so easily. There are so many details that I really like, starting with the circle garland. And switching out the ribbon on the candles is such a great idea. Love the little clothespins and the fact that you used upside down wine glasses as candle holders is perfect. I can’t believe that silver tray is from the dollar store. You’re so resourceful! Great job!

  6. Just gorgeous! :)

  7. This is gorgeous Chelsea! I love the candles on the wine glasses and 2013 attached with clothes pins :)
