Tablescape # 59 "As Time Flies By"

Hello Everyone,
Yes! Time Flies! I can't believe it's going to be 2013 in a couple of days. I have some project ideas for the new year and I'm excited to get started.  But first we need to celebrate this New Year's Eve.
I've had the inspiration for this tablescape from the moment I saw Susan's @ Between Naps on the Porch  'Clock Plate' tablescape. I was hooked!
I loved the idea of CLOCKS. We do watch the clock waiting for midnight to bring in the New Year. It's sometimes a challenge for us old fogies to stay awake until midnight, but I love to stay up and watch the ball drop in New York and watch all the people in Time Square waiting so long to celebrate New Year's Eve in NYC. How exciting it would be to visit New York City on New Year's Eve.
A cozy New Year's Eve dinner.

I found the clock ornaments  at TM in August when the Christmas ornaments started to arrive.
Only one December 31st per year. Only one 2012.
'As Time Flies By'
I love to try new things with my camera. I was excited when I saw this shot. Looking thru a glass and seeing another glass is awesome in My opinion! 
The black tablecloth is a great backdrop for the gold place mats and the china trimmed in gold.
 The gold glittery trim on the napkin edges and golden napkin rings match the glitzy decor. 
 The hurricane was used as the glass for a kerosene lamp when the power went off due to bad weather.
This is the back of the one of the clocks. I love the beaded work and the golden fabric.
 Does it look French? Or maybe a beautiful beaded gown worn by a movie star.

The  classy place mats and delightful napkins are my favorite. 
The beautiful stemware is from  my mother's glassware collection.

The shimmering golden candle is just perfect for an evening to remember.
 The light will shine on a brand new year - 2013

Thanks for visiting My Cozy Corner 
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

  4. OMG how I love those darling clock ornaments. What a perfect accent on a New Year's eve celebration table!! It is all lovely.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. Sometimes, with me, a decor idea comes from a single detail or piece.
    Those amazing clocks were the one in this tablescape. I was looking through your lovely pics and had to return to them and have "another" look.
    What a great finding and amazing tablescape!
    Wishing you a Happy and Inspired New Year,

  6. Lovely clocks and the gold warms the decor so much...sometimes silvers look too cold. Depends on where a person is located I guess. I have a silver display and it makes me feel so cold to look at it. I've learned my lesson.

  7. I've never seen anything like these clock ornaments....and I LOVE them! They really are unique and fun! Happy New year!

  8. Your tablescape is so pretty. Like the others, I love those clock ornaments - so unique! And they are the perfect touch for a new year's eve gathering.

    Happy New Year!

  9. I love all the gold in your tablescape and the clock ornaments are unique. Taking a photo through a wine glass was very clever of you, with a nice result.

  10. Beautiful table. Thank you for sharing the idea of taking a picture of a glass thru a glass. Wishing you a Happy New Year.

    Happy New Year!

  16. I think this is one of my favorite tables that I've seen this holiday season! You're right, the black tablecloth really does show the gold to it's best! I love the pretty gold ornaments you found, too. I know your guests felt special! I hope you have a great 2013. I look forward to your tablescapes throughout the new year!

  17. Happy New Year and wow, what a beautiful table. I love those clock adornments and yes, they do look French. We do not celebrate the New year, and I am almost always asleep my 9:00 every year and so it is fun to see when others go all out to celebrate. Have a wonderful year and I look forward to more shares~

  18. What a beautiful New Year's Eve table! Just perfect! Happy New Year!
