New Years Sparkly Tablescape + Lowes Giveaway #LowesCreator

December 27, 2012

Lowes CreatorI hope you had a wonderful and joyous Christmas!  Ours was filled with plenty of smiles, laughs, and hugs.  The kids were thrilled with their gifts from Santa and they have been quite occupied (which makes mama happy treasuring the quiet moments).  We’re off to see more family this coming weekend, but in the meantime, I have something fun to share…

In the midst of all the Holiday Hoopla, Lowe’s sent me on another challenge this month to scour their aisles and create SOMETHING SPARKLY for New Years. This one surely threw me for a loop (especially since I don’t usually decorate for New Years), but I arose to the challenge and feel that I hit this one out of the ballpark!

Thus the creation of my New Years 2013 Sparkly Tablescape

New Years Sparkly Tablescape Centerpiece by @Jenna_Burger, #LowesCreator #LowesCreativeIdeas #NewYears #Decorating #Tablescape

An idea struck when I was in the plumbing aisle looking at PVC pipe.  Isn’t that where all your ideas start too??

Scouring the aisles of Lowes

In knowing that I had a bunch of crystal candlesticks (which are missing mates and are all random sizes and heights) in the china cabinet, I thought that would be a good place to start to bring in the glitz, glitter, and sparkly!  And then I would add PVC pipe into the mix.

Ok, but seriously…  I had the thought to cut the PVC pipe, paint them with chalkboard paint, and add the numbers 2-0-1-3. So I was off and shopping for my materials.

I ended up buying:

  • (1) 2′ long PVC pipe
  • (4) PVC caps (which I think were around 25 cents each)
  • chalkboard paint
  • nuts (for napkin rings – keep on reading)

Once home, I started off by cutting the PVC pipe with a miter box so I had 4 pieces that were 4″ high each.

It was bitter in the garage, so the Mister and I cut them indoors. I’ll tell you, it was a mess – beware! After cutting the PVC to the needed size, I handsanded the edges to get rid of the plastic shavings and to make them somewhat smooth.

I added the PVC cap on one end which would be the part that sits on top of the candlestick.

Then using Rustoleum chalkboard paint, I painted the exterior, interior, and the edges.

Lastly, with white chalk, I freehanded the number 2-0-1-3 on each PVC cylinder.

Believe me, up close it isn’t perfect, but it’s unique and cute!

Once the Chalkboard PVC holders were done, I was ready to decorate my tablescape. To start, I shopped my home. I gathered anything silver and sparkly.  I grabbed ornaments from the Christmas tree, the new sparkly Christmas cones from the mantel, a clock (so apropos for New Years), along with white ribbon in different sizes and many of my crystal candles.

After that it was ready to start playing.  After a few moves and some edits, the centerpiece was complete.

As the moveable base for the centerpiece, I used the pallet wooden box that I recently created for my Christmas setting.  It’s nice because it holds everything in place and can easily move so the table can actually be used for meals. Beauty + Function!

Under the wood box is a pretty white scarf that I’ve had for years (and don’t ever wear).  When I was hunting around my home, I thought it would be the perfect addition to bring in some sparkle.

And of course we couldn’t have a New Years table without some bubbly…

For each seat setting, I added a silver charger with our china plates on top (a simple white plate with silver edging). For the napkin, I added a linen cloth and tied it with a piece of jute and added a few nuts for fun. I was going to create an entire napkin ring with nuts, but didn’t have time, but it could be an idea for a future project.

After wracking my brain for a bit on the ideal project for New Years, I’m thrilled with the outcome of my sparkly creation.  It wasn’t easy, but I feel when I’m put to the challenge, something great always results!

Cheers to a happy, healthy, joyous, prosperous, and amazing 2013!
