Combining the idea of the clock striking midnight and a favorite destination, Laura Ingalls Gunn of Decor to Adore was inspired to create her Bonne Année table decor.
Gunn’s centerpiece features mini towers under glass cloches, faux snow, metallic ornaments and votive holders along with an array of vintage-style clock faces—printed from the computer and detailed with glitter.
This gumball party wouldn't be vintage-inspired without some soda. "I used Mason jars with stamped lids for drinking glasses," says Kara Allen. "The straws were made out of paper—a perfect vintage-inspired touch." To add to the theme, Kara made "gumball" ice cubes by freezing red punch in a ball-shaped ice tray found at a bargain price online. Aside from the decor, Kara suggests including a theme-oriented activity for guests. "I thought that ribbon wands would be so fun for little guests to play with and they were also easy to make," she says. She attached colorful polka-dot ribbons to the tops of painted wooden dowel rods and placed them in a large mason jar filled with gumballs to fit in with the theme. Photo by Lyndsey Fagerlund Imagery
