Putting On The Glitz for New Year's Eve

 QUICK TIPS FOR  
RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR  
 
 
3 .. 2 ..1 ...Happy New Year !!
Just 4 more days till family, friends, neighbors, and more,
celebrate the ringing in of another new year ahead!!
 
With budgets tighter these days, more and more people
are opting to celebrate New Year's Eve at home.
 But just because you're celebrating at home,
doesn't mean you have to forgo celebrating in style !!

Make your Holiday Buffet tables dazzle
with delight and festive charm. Add holiday decorations like scattered glass ornaments,
curled ribbons, and round mirrored
plattters to reflect the sparkle and shine.  
 
Add depth and interest to your food displays
by placing dishes at different heights using
cake pedestals or other types of risers.
 
To complete the look add various sizes and shapes of candles for added sparkle and shine.

Appetizers are always the highlight of
any New Year's Eve Celebration.
Make serving appetizer and drinks something guests crave by using
unusual items to keep bottles of
champagne chilled, like a garden urn
filled with snow.
 
A bird bath brought indoors becomes a centerpiece of attention when decorated
with holiday greenery and adorned with silver ornaments and candles.

Don't forget to keep the party rolling, 
by storing extra drinks, napkins and paper plates close by. Place a storage crate filled with handy refill items under your display table. The crate will be hidden by the tablecloth, and you won't have to dash to find supplies for guests when quantities are low.
 
Are you planning a sit down dinner for your guests? Then let creativity should be your
main dish. Adornments for napkin rings
along with party hats and party favors in a coordinated color and theme makes any
dinner seem like a party.

laughter comes the countdown ...
 
3 .. 2 ..1 ...Happy New Year !! 
 
If you're looking for a healthy alternative to champagne or wine toasts to the New Year,
try a funky and modern twists like fruit smoothies. Guests will enjoy the surprise
and it's a welcome alternative to alcohol for guests who need to drive home after the event.
 
New Year's Eve is a time of sharing with those we love, those we value, and those we hope to keep connected with throughout the coming year.
 
Whatever your style, buffet or sit down, modern or formal, the most important thing to highlight at your party is creativity and love. Enjoy the time with family and friends, and make those you are sharing with, feel welcome !!
