My favorite parties are the kind that delight all your senses.
Gold, charcoal & silver decorations.
Loving the idea of decorating with clocks for the big New Years Eve countdown.
Scentsy: Hemingway, earthy yet still a little holiday-ish
Turn on pandora. My current favorite music consists of a quickmix made up of my Colbie Caillat, Michael Buble, Billie Holliday, and Regina Spektor. Or if you are looking to make your own mix be sure to include
"Fly Me to the Moon," Frank Sinatra
"Golden Years," David Bowie
"It Had to Be You," Harry Connick Jr.
“Footprints” Bare Naked Ladies
"Night Time Is the Right Time," Ray Charles
"Put Your Records On," Corinne Bailey Rae
"Rock Steady," Aretha Franklin
"Save the Last Dance for Me," Michael Buble
"My Revolution" Shedaisy
"Auld Lang Syne" Bare Naked Ladies
"The Best Is Yet to Come," Tony Bennett
Allow each partygoer to make their own noise makers. Learn to make on Martha Stewart.com
Make light of New Year’s resolutions by turning them into a guessing game. Give partygoers cards (download the New Year Playing Cards) and have guests finish the sentences with hopeful wishes―or tongue-in-cheek witticisms. Gather the cards, read them aloud randomly, then let the gang try to figure out who wrote what. (idea and image from Real Simple.com)
Happy New Year!
