Happy New Years Eve!
I love reflecting on the past year on New Years Eve and
and looking ahead to possibilities in the new year.
Setting goals, clarifying aspirations.
Dreaming about possibilities
Every year- we watch the ball drop in Times Square on t.v.
and I have to say... I love.that.bling.
So for decor, and parties
bringing a little bit of that sparkle into the house is perfect.
I like to decorate the house just a bit
and add a little pizazz to enjoy while we watch the ball drop in NYC
I don't do much- but I do have some favorites.
Topping the list:
A little silver and gold and glitz and glam
What would NYE be without a little bit of glitz and glamour?
Of course, it needs to be something super simple after all the holiday decor and entertaining
and inexpensive and easy to put up in just a few minutes.
Like a little bit of tinsel fashioned into a garland
74 cents for each box of tinsel.
I bought 6 boxes because my chalkboard is a little on the large size... ahem...
so the banner was bigger than usual but you could probably get just a couple for a regular size chalkboard.
Drape it over a little piece of string and voila!
Instant blinging, glitzy, glam banner
a little bit of Vegas in the dining room.
(be prepared for your floor getting a little Vegasy with stray tinsel too)
For the banner letters:
I used the die-cut machine at the craft store to cut the HAPPY NEW YEAR & CHEERS letters out
of sparkly, glittery white card stock ($3.98 total) and then simply attached them to the banner.
A few silvery trees from Christmas decor on the table
just a sprinkling of faux snow
ornaments & mercury glass candlesticks
(all already on hand)
and the table is ready for food & desserts
& welcoming in the New Year with a little sparkle.
