Happy New!! Wow its already the third week into 2018, time sure is flying by. I took the photos for this post a while ago and just never had time to share them. Now that the busy Christmas season is behind us and all the decor is put away until next year, it seems fitting to refresh your space for a new year. I love how clean and uncluttered my place feels after it’s so full and busy in December.

I did a post a while back on table settings, I had used some items that were high and low priced. This table setting is mostly items I found at IKEA!! The teal placemats, blue and gold paper napkins, the chic black plates and the beautiful gold cutlery are all from IKEA. You don’t need to spent a ton of money to make your dinner party look chic. 😉 The cloth napkins, gold dipped candle and the gold vase are the few splurges from West Elm. The fake roses are fro the craft store Michael’s. The wine glasses are from HomeSense. I love having dinner party’s and setting the table just ads that extra special touch. I get this from my childhood as my mom always made me and my sister help set the table when guests were over.

I always have a tray styled that is a permanent fixture on my dining table when we are not all sitting down for a formal dinner. I have been using this black and gold tray I scored at Superstore, and I love it. I change up the decor on it every few months, this time everything on it was super cheap. I found the gold planter and fake fern at IKEA. The napkins are are also a bargain from IKEA. The 3 white vases I scored at my local dollar store and the cost $20 for all 3! You don’t need a lot of money to make your home beautiful and to show your guests your home has style. 😉
