I put together a frugal New Year’s Eve tablescape in my Blue Cottage, and I’ll tell you where I found all of the New Year’s Eve party supplies — on a budget!
New Year’s Eve Party Supplies That Don’t Break the Bank
First of all, I decided against a tablecloth for this table setting. I have a pretty, golden tablecloth, but it wouldn’t have worked that well with all of the other decor I had planned to use.
And I didn’t feel like ironing it, to be perfectly honest.
Plus, not using a tablecloth is obviously one way to keep the costs down for a table setting, and you could use large confetti on the table, or similar paper goods like I did here.
The cloth placemat is from last year’s Christmas decor, and I’ve use the silver tray many times before.
Since golden dots turned out to clearly be the theme somehow, I ended up also buying four cute shot glasses at HomeGoods – because of the dots on them. Each of them has a cute saying, like “Cheers.”
I also love these affordable Confetti Stemless Champagne Glass (Set of 4):
I ordered and saved those pretty white napkins with gold accents specifically for my frugal New Year’s Eve tablescape.
Here are some fabric napkins with gold dots!
If you’d rather use paper napkins for an easier cleanup, this gold foil napkin set is adorable!
I paired the napkins with our simple, white plates, and new silverware from IKEA.
My son and I drove there two days ago, and instead of a bed for him, we came home with new plants, candy, chocolate, frozen vegetable meat balls, and this set of stainless silverware.
You can’t beat $12 for 12 pieces! And I like that IKEA producgts are known for being non toxic.
I found the “Happy New Year” party hat with lights at Target for $5.

And New Year’s Eve isn’t complete unless you have a box of paper crackers with little toys in them.
My white ones work perfectly for my table setting. I remember them from my childhood — we always had those for New Year’s Eve.
That little $1 wooden cutout is from my latest run to Michael’s. While I was stocking up on Christmas decor, I had the good sense to also buy this, so I’d have it for my New Year’s table setting.
The white and gold candle holders are thrift store finds, and the other candles are from Target.
I might still change the frame’s plaid ribbon to a gold ribbon or change the artwork altogether.
As you can see, my vintage pie tin centerpiece has been moved to my vintage trunk table for now.
Maybe you can score a vintage New Year postcard. I bought this in a thrift store one day.
I took so many darn pictures again that it got dark while I was taking them, so you get to see what our living room looks like decked out with New Year’s Eve party supplies and all the lights and candles shining.
I know we’re really going to enjoy sitting at this table for New Year’s Eve.
I hope you enjoyed reading about how I put together this simple tablescapes with affordable New Year’s Eve party supplies!
I spent about $35 on it (hat, crackers, silverware, wooden cutout, shot glasses) and combined it with items I already had.
With a little bit of planning, it came together so easily.
The hardest part is finding the theme, and then I just style everything around it — that’s what works best for me.
Happy New Year to you!
