I've been MIA these past few days, I've been taking some time off from blogging, social media, and projects. I was trying to be more present here in my home and with my family during this holiday season. However, before the year comes to a close, I wanted to share this small project with you all.
We usually don't celebrate the arrival of a new year, but when I found
these paper plates over at HomeGoods the other day, the idea of doing a little celebration appeared. Well, I just had to tell it to my daughter, and she immediately called her friends and yeah, they are coming to celebrate tonight. :)
My plan: A table full of goodies and food.
I used one folding table and topped it off with an old door I had in my stash. In order to dress it a bit more, I went rummaging thru all those old Christmas wrapping papers I've been collecting for years... This yellow-ish with white back was kinda nice to make a skirt. It was attached to the table with clear tape.
Out of black and gold paper, the words Happy New Year were cut out, and onto the wall they went.
I always use gaffers tape (aff.) to attach things onto my walls, it leaves no residue and it doesn't damage the wall.
Guess what? The clock paper plates were also mounted to the wall. ;)
And that's the starting point to this black, gold and silver new year's celebration.
The door a top the table gave me a big surface for my display. More clock plates were brought in, those little ones were bought last year at TJ Maxx.
My cake plate stands were a good choice to give the table different levels.
The Christmas ball ornaments and little tree make a good statement on a New Year's buffet table.
Hey, New Year's parties are a good opportunity to show off those pretty and elaborate glasses you haven't use all year!
I really love these clock paper plates with its "Kiss me at midnight" words. 16 plates for under 5 bucks. C'mon so good!
They even work as wall art! And your guests can easily find the plates. :D
Finally, no New Year's Eve party is ever complete without balloons, hats, noise makers, fancy straws, glassware, garlands, and lights, I love those little lights, they give the entire room such a nice glow.
So, tell me, how are you welcoming the new year? Whether you're celebrating big or small I want to wish you the best in the upcoming year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
