My favorite New Year’s Eve parties are the chic, glamorous ones. They capture the excitement of a brand new year and are the perfect way to top off a season of celebrating. The occasion also offers a great opportunity to play with one of my favorite color schemes: black, white, silver and gold.
This color scheme is super easy to work with. Not only does it work with any style (traditional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc) but it always looks stylish. There are plenty of decorative items out there in this scheme to facilitate your party and what doesn’t come in the right colors can easily be spray-painted for some DIY fun.
You can also recycle Christmas decor for your New Year’s Eve party. Anything in black, white, silver or gold can potentially be re-used to make your party even more budget-friendly.
To inspire you, here are even more ideas for a chic New Year’s Eve party.

New Year’s Eve Table Setting Ideas
You can never go wrong with black and white. I chose a black charger to create a nice contrast against a white place mat. The polka dots add some flair, while the gold glass provides a fun accent and more of a New Year’s Eve touch.
For a more glamorous look, I chose a white and silver palette with a few hints of gold. It was all about the shine and shimmer.
All gold can be just as powerful for a New Year’s Even party. The place mat brings some nice texture against the gold plates. For the glass, I chose simple clear stemware so as not to overwhelm the setting.
Hope you all have a fun and fabulous New Year!
