Hello Everyone. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones. We did and can’t believe it came and went, and here we are on New Year’s Eve. How did this year fly by so quickly?
First of all, wanted to share with you our Christmas & New Year Card we gave out to our loved ones:
Now, time to prepare for our New Year’s Party. I have done some preparations to show you how easy it is. I used alot of stuff I already had and since my Christmas decor doesn’t go up until after New Year’s, I had alot of decorations already out. The other New Year’s items were bought at Party City. In addition, our tree still has gifts as we will be doing another gift exchange with our family memebers in this party.
Here is the same chalkboard I use in other decorations. Today, I went to Ace Hardware and bought metallic gold paint and painted the trim of my chalkboard. I also purchased these metal numbers that were black and also spray painted them. The cupcake stand was silver and decided to give it some gold shimmer love as well.
In addition, since this party is with all my husband’s family, I stored our stockings away and spray painted some wooden letters from Michael’s to display the family name.
The final touch is a backdrop for pictures to be taken. I bought the sign at Party City along with some party favors. The gold shimmer behind this sign was purchased at the Dollar Tree. The stool shown below is from my bedroom vanity with my living room pillows. All we need to do is buy balloons to add to the sides.
Wishing each of you a blessed and healthy New Year 2014!
