A New Years Celebration

As we are in the middle of the hot southern summer, and also in the middle of the pandemic I have been thinking of much happier times lately to get me through the days. I realized I never made a post of our New Years Eve 2019 dinner celebration. What a fun evening of charcuterie, champagne, and braised short rib!

I might have been even a bit excessive and printed menus on linen paper to adorn the place setting. For this dinner we chose to use the Wedgwood ‘Florentine Green’ dinner plates, accompanied by beautiful silver flatware I have dated to over a century old. The silverplate serving pieces are a mix of patterns from Wallace, mostly the famous ‘Baroque’ design. Our evenings beverages were served in Waterford ‘Lismore’ pattern crystal.

It was such a beautiful way to bring in the New Year. We had a fire going, and my classical music playlist playing in the background. Looking back on fun evenings like this has kept me sane during the quarantine, especially during the hot summertime when I am not feeling up to cooking such a large dinner. I would be lying if I said I hadn’t already started planning the celebration this year. I hope everyone has been doing okay during the pandemic. We hope you stay safe and find happiness in your own way during these times, just as I have found writing this post.

Best wishes,
Antique Millennial
