Celebrate the New Year with a festive table setting

See the decoration tips for the most spectacular table setting!

HAY Tint wineglass, 2 pcs, pink - yellow

Witty wine glasses

Deliciously tinted drinkware brings personality and a relaxed feeling to the table setting. HAY's Tint wine glasses are ideal for raising a toast, and delight with their simplistic design and playful colors. The wine glasses are made of dishwasher-proof borosilicate glass, which is significantly more durable than normal glass.

Fritz Hansen JH candelabra, steel

Shiny metal details

What would a party table be without the dim light of candles? Designed by Jaime Hayón, the JH candleholder leaves room for interpretations: it can be seen as a sculpturally minimalist object or imagined as little characters looking in different directions. The eye-catching candelabra beautifies the table with clear lines and a matte sheen of stainless steel.

Stelton Collar wine stopper

Save the bubbles

If you want your sparkling drink to taste fresh still on the next morning brunch, the bubbles will stay in the bottle with a high-quality bottle cap. The brass-coated Collar wine stopper works with a built-in pumping function that prevents the beverage from being oxidized. In addition to its practicality, the wine stopper’s Scandinavian simplistic design and luxurious shine create an elegant look that exudes a festive vibe. Don't forget the ice bucket from the same Collar collection!

Iittala OTC Helle A4 plate, 21 x 29 cm, amethyst

Brighten up with patterns

The multicolored Helle pattern acts as an eye-catcher of the dinner table and playfully decorates with its dotted, vibrant print. The Helle plates of the Curious Mind of Oiva Toikka series are based on sketches found in Toikka's archives, celebrating the Finnish artist's bold expression. Rectangular plates of different sizes can be used for small sauces or as a dinner plate as well as a larger serving dish.

Alessi Anna G. corkscrew, multicolour

The fashionistas on the guest list

Alessi's Anna G. and Alessandro M. corkscrews celebrate the centennial of the famous Italian design house. The happy-natured style icons are dressed in colorful clothes and delight in the kitchen with their presence. The quality bottle opener is packaged in a beautiful gift box, so it’s also a great gift idea for a little get-together.

Menu Bottle Grinder, 2 pcs, brushed brass - walnut

A pinch of flavor

If you still lack a good pepper mill, Menu’s Bottle Grinder is a must-have! Because the grinding mechanism is located at the top of the mill, no crumbs will fall from the grinder onto the table. The cylindrical-shaped mill feels comfortable in the hand, and is available with either a silicone or metal surface – the brass version, perfected with walnut adjustment knobs, is especially suitable for New Year's Eve.
