All That Glitters....

We are in the final countdown for the appearance of the Big Guy!  Kids are out of school, out of their routine and full of energy.  You, however, are not!  If you are like me, mentally, you have already moved past the mountains of wrapping paper and gift boxes and moved on to something that is really all about you....New Year's Eve!

You spend your time hiding in the closet and dreaming of how you will look in that new "little black dress", heels and all things sparkly that you received for Christmas.  You're dreaming of that nice, romantic dinner party or spending some quiet time with someone special for that perfect kiss at midnight.  Suddenly, you panic and realize that you need something pretty to put on the table for this last special event of the year. 

Thankfully, I'm here to help....to show you a few options! And before we go any further, no, I'm not getting paid nor was I asked to write this post.  I just love pretty, shiny things for New Year's Eve and wanted to share them with you!

I have been enamored with all things gold lately, so naturally, this decanter caught my eye....and it is 70% off!  Seventy percent people....the big seven - zero.


Not a drinker?  No problem.  Some sparking juice would look lovely in this decanter.....or some eggnog! :-)

Something else I found that would be beautiful on that table...these wine glasses.


Don't want to spend a lot of money....make your own with this tutorial.  Easy and pretty!

Tablecloth?  Yes, please...

You will need a silver serving tray that will show up on that beautiful tablecloth...


And last but not least, some confetti!


Next week, I will share a few simple appetizers for the big night!

  1. Nice!! I haven't been a huge fan of NYE in the past....I was always either working or performing. Now that I have the option to have a quiet night I often take it! This year? Who knows!! I love these sparkly items for any glam party, though!
