I plan to share lots of great 'new' New Year's finds tomorrow...
but in the meantime, here's another look at our NYE party from last year!!
Here are some of the highlights.
The table before the 'real' food.
I had a branch (already painted from Halloween) that I added black and white poms to (thanks to Kristy - The Purple Pug for that idea). I used a cake stand to hold the paper fortune cookies we made (got that idea from Home Confetti).
Oreos baked inside brownies = Black and White brownies
My 'countdown' cupcakes. I used black card stock and metallic pen.
Dipped a marshmallow in clear sprinkles (for the sparkly effect)
and added it all to a lollipop stick.
The cupcakes are Funfetti (of course)!
Champagne 'bubbles' (donut holes) - thanks to Kim - Party Frosting!
I used my New Year's printable (attached to card stock & a dowel) as centerpieces.
They are standing in jars of black eyed peas:)
A can of Rotel and black eyed peas became our 'lucky' salsa.
The pasta was festive because I used bowties and curly noodles. haha
A little bubbly. I punched 2" circles of silver card stock then used a 1" punch.
cheapo plastic came apart so I could add the 'bling'.
I can't have people leave without something.
Some reNEWing hand scrub for the girls, chocolate bars for the guys
and some snazzy sunglasses (since we were whooping it up during the day)
The kids LOVED counting down and yelling 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'.
They loved it even more when the saw their bubbly :)
Kiddie Cocktails (cherry Caprisuns with a few cherries)
Everyone had a fun time. The weather was great..the company was great & it was early enough for everyone to get the heck out so I could get to bed early :)
Cheers to a fabulous 2011!!
I hope you're all having a great last week of 2011!!
