I know Christmas is just around the corner (yay!!) and plans have been set in stone since like August (at least mine have because nurses have to make their holiday schedule way too far in advance) but, what is your GP > game plan> for New Years?
Whether your ringing in the new year with family, friends, a night out on the town or a house partay, you still want to be somewhat festive right?!?! >>> Well, you might be thinking between all the pumpkin, turkey and Christmas tree action you don’t have any time, energy or money left for the New Year, but this year you can make it happen!! =)
Check out these fun, easy, inexpensive ideas that even utilize some of your Christmas decor!
1) All that GLITTERS isn’t going to cost you GOLD
This craft can be used in two different ways. First, you can use some left over wine bottles from the holidays (don’t you just loove recycling!!=), cover them in modge podge, roll in the glitter of your choice, tie some balloons to the bottle and use them as table center pieces. Or buy the champagne of your choice (remember, does not have to be fancy cause the labels are covered in glitter) glitter the bottle up and then serve at midnight!!

2) Balloons and bubbly
We have to love balloons because they are cheap, fun, and really add some depth and texture to the festivities. Blow up some balloons, tape them behind your bubbly table in a whimsical pattern and VOILA!

3) Glassware [or plasticware] Arrangement
Depending on what you already have lying around the house, the good news about glass is that it all matches =). And if you don’t have a lot of glassware (or perhaps nervous about some rowdy friends) bust out or buy some plasticware!
Make an arrangement for the: bar, mantle, table ect.
Add: champagne, Christmas ball ornaments, beads, crystals, Christmas light (the list goes on)
4) Good ole Martha Stewart Streamers!

5) Custom count-down Flutes
Martha has some self-stick numbers to create special countdown flutes for your guests! I mean, the 10 second countdown is pretty much the highlight of the party, right? Peel the stickers off after the fact or use plastic flutes. If you can’t find Martha’s special stickers, i’m some glitter tulip paint would probably do the trick!
