A Midnight Soirée

A New Years Eve tablescape steeped in gilded, mystical accents, raw textures, layered ceramics and sculptural design to inspire celebration and reflection with loved ones.

A tablescape artfully curated for reflective appreciation of the decade past – for the stars which took to our night sky, the love that touched our hearts and the moments we will forever cherish. A night to inspire celebration, bind memories and welcome the New Year with loved ones over flickering candlelight and mystical cocktails…


“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” – Marcus Aurelius

Inspired by magical New Years Eve celebrations, stylist Heidi Cansdell of The Romance, photographer Megan Kelly and The Lane collaborated to create a decadent tablescape delicately balanced between sculptural and organic, considered and unexpected, texture and form. A setting steeped in an inimitable beauty, crumbling surfaces and raw edges poetically fuse with sleek lines and sculptural design. Layered ceramics draped in sheer silks bring an unexpected weightlessness and softness, while gilded accents and moody undertones ground the setting. A collection of vases, candelabras and crystals of varying heights and sizes scattered throughout, add depth to the table and ignite a celestial touch. A long bench seat invokes a communal feel, igniting conversation and creating an intimacy between those gathered.

“Curated for reflective appreciation of the decade past… for the stars which took to our night sky, the love that touched our hearts and the moments we will forever cherish.”
