The Best New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Food and Tablescape Ideas

New Year’s Eve parties are so much fun to host.

Of course, they are always fun to attend too!

For this month’s New Year’s Eve dinner club, I designed a cozy holiday table that is perfect for a sit-down dinner.

But it also works well if you want to just serve apps and dessert too.

New Year’s Eve Centerpiece Idea for a Cozy Holiday

For this New Year’s Eve table decor idea, my theme is a cozy woodland holiday.

As with all my tablescapes, every table starts with a beautiful centerpiece and cozy layers.

For this centerpiece idea for the dining table, I used THIS beautiful red ticking stripe table runner.

Instead of using my go-to centerpiece vessel for this one, I layered my greenery and winter decor directly on top of the table runner.

I started with this GORGEOUS real touch Norfolk pine garland.

And I’m actually using two so it’s long enough for the table.

If you are looking for this garland right now, it’s sold out everywhere.

But I usually find more of it in summer through early fall.

So if you want it and ever see it online, get it before it’s gone because it sells out quickly every year.

Once the garland was draped well, I added THESE small faux evergreen trees and adorable owls to create a rustic woodland theme.

And then tucked in some organic elements that include large ornaments, pinecones, and white berries.

I then tucked in THESE beautiful candlesticks to add so mood lighting to the centerpiece.

If you are just serving apps and dessert, don’t set the table with place settings.

Just add stacks of small plates, flatware, and napkins with all the food so guests can easily pick.

New Year’s Eve Table Setting Idea

But if you are serving dinner too?

We need to set the table as well.

Much like the centerpiece, layering a table setting creates a cozy look with lots of texture and dimension.

I’ve found that guests really appreciate the attention to detail.

So I started with these beautiful cedar branch placemats.

If you can’t find cedar branch placemats, look for small faux boxwood wreaths that you can layer in the table setting design.

Then added my favorite rattan chargers.

Topped each place setting off with a Lenox dinner and salad plate.

And added these pretty plaid napkins with a wood napkin ring.

If you don’t have a napkin ring, you can simply fold the napkin and place it between one of the table setting layers to add a little more dimension.

I have adorable flatware pouches that are perfect for keeping all the flatware together.

And finally, I topped each table setting off with some beautiful stemware.
