As you may have noticed from this post, or this post, I am pregnant -very pregnant, like could pop at any second! Therefore, this year, we’ve decided to have a low key New Years and ring in 2016 just the two of us, waiting on our little boy.
However, if we were throwing a party (which we’ve done quite often) here’s what my inspo would be: black, gold and silver. I don’t know about you, but for me, 2015 was a year full of gold! From our wedding to Christmas decor, I have had gold running throughout the year. So, it only makes sense to finish it off with more gold!
Here’s what we would do to ring in 2016 with a bang!
Food: think of something that can take some time and allow everyone to chat among themselves-such as sushi, fondue or one of our favorites, raclettte.
Drinks: champagne, of course! You cannot ring in the new year without champagne. I love
these glasses and top them off with these to finish off the look. We LOVE Veuve but if you opt for something cheaper, I love the glitter covered bottles if you’re up for a DIY.
Have some bowls of chocolate kisses laying around (the silver and gold foiled to stick to decor) for those who may not have a midnight kiss.
Music: nothing sets the tone like some classic lounge music, we love listening to some smooth jazz throw in some Brazilian jazz and the mood is set -The Skinny Confidential has some amazing playlists!
Decor: this sets the tone of the night. I love classic sexy decor for a party. Reuse these gold Christmas decorations and throw in a few black pieces to make them less Christmas and more New Years. I love marquee letters, we had some made for our wedding and they were a hit! Get some to write 2016 and it is bound to be an amazing crop for some pictures. I would totally get this, this, this, and these to make things come together, and of course, balloons, I love these.
Last but not least you cannot forget props! I love sparklers, so have a few on hand for guests to light when the clock strikes midnight. Also grab some traditional New Years crowns or hats to take those cheesy pictures.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a recap of our 2015!!
