Learn how to transform your dining room table into an electric, let’s-party-like-it’s-1999 blue and silver color palette in no time:
Make a Special Message: Use blue corduroy to make a runner and set of napkins. Arrange glasses on a porcelain platter and set them on the board as guests arrive. On the sideboard, make a special message by embellishing papier-mâché letters with silver glitter.
Give Goodie Bags: Favor your guests with pretty white-and-silver-edged gift bags tied with satin ribbon. Enclose a small good luck charm for the year ahead.
Use Chrome Clocks and Silver Ornaments: Wrap cans with blue ribbon to give the tabletop an electric feel. At their bases, scatter blue and silver ornaments and handfuls of chocolate kisses. Add clocks of varying size, placing them at varying heights and a globe to salute the worldwide celebration.
