My DIY New Year's Eve Party

We decided to host a NYE party just in time to get Christmas decor at 50% off on the day after Christmas. So convenient! With a little tinsel and pretty shimmery paper, a NYE party was born.

DIY Tinsel Stirrers
{So simple! Hot glue a 1/2 inch piece of tinsel garland to a wooden skewer, insert into champagne glass, and voila!}

Champagne Mixers
{These are Voss water bottles that I emptied out and covered with a label. I liked the silver tops it comes with so I matched it with shimmery white paper and printed the juice name in a gold colored deco font to keep with the color theme}

Tinsel 2012 Banner
{The numbers were cut out from cardboard, then hot glued the tinsel garland to it. I taped the numbers to the wall so that it stayed put, instead of stringing it on the grosgrain ribbon.}

Invite and Bubbly Bar Signs
{I can't take credit for these. The lovely duo at Lustratype created my invite and signs. They can customize any graphic for your print or web needs. I wanted an old Deco look in gold and peach tones...is it perfect or what?}

There were some more DIY projects done but they weren't photographed...the night went by so fast! I hope that the rest of 2012 takes its sweet time. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
