43 Sparkling Party Table Settings Ideas For The New Years Eve

Posted on

When I was growing up in Scotland, I was excited about Christmas. My mother would have our mantelpiece decorated with holly and mistletoe and I would hang up my stocking (usually my dad’s as they were bigger!) and I would take off to bed at an early hour, waiting for the magic of Christmas morning.

As all young children do, I woke up at an early hour, worried about going into our living room, in case Santa Claus was still there, or even worse, he had not come yet! I would lie in my bed, counting the minutes until I thought it was safe to get up.

After the festivities of opening gifts and then eating large quantities of food, Christmas day would draw to a close. Now the real holiday spirit would take place, at New Year’s Eve.

The planning for this special event would just about take all of the preceding week to complete. Mother would be busy baking all week, so many scrumptious cakes and delicacies, that we were not allowed to touch, under peril of our lives! The main meat dishes at New Years Eve, were a large leg of Pork, a Turkey, and a Virginia Ham. They were usually cooked the day before, so that they could be sliced cold, as in a buffet. They would be accompanied by home made applesauce, cranberry relish and other pickles.
