A Country French New Year's Tablescape

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Country French New Year It’s almost New Year’s Eve and, here at my house, the plans are still in the works. Sooo...in the meantime, I decided to share my New Year's tablescape from several years ago. It definitely has a French accent! It's rustic and simple and stars lots of texture with a generous helping of frenchiness!



CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Country French New Year And here it is! I started with a nubby painter’s drop cloth as a tablecloth and layered on my ruffled burlap table runner.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Country French New Year These wonderful candle holders came from Dollar Tree! Yep…can you believe it? And they are just as pretty as the more expensive ones!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Country French New Year At each place is a pewter-look charger and my favorite go-to plates, Felice by Chris Madden…a thrift store find at $10 for a set for four. I am using my pewter flatware…Octette by Gorham…and the matching goblets, along with some thrift store wine glasses. The over-sized French script napkins are actually tea towels that I found at World Market…love them!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Country French New YearAt each place is a handmade New Year’s Eve party cracker. It’s very simple…just a paper towel tube cut into 4 inch sections and covered with a French script paper guest towel that I found at Jo-Ann’s several years ago. I tucked a lottery ticket and some imported candy inside each of them, then tied them off with a bit of organdy ribbon. Mine don’t actually pop but I found directions for making some that do here.

  1. Looks so nice Debbie! I have very similar Chris Madden plates, there is a subtle difference in the edge detail. There is no name on the back for the pattern. I purchased them myself at JC Penney several years ago. They really do go with everything. Happy New Year!
