Ring In 2012!

I can’t believe that the New Year is almost upon us again. This year really has just flown by.
But since we are just a few days away from 2012, I thought it would be a good idea to start planning another shindig!
Gold & Silver
You can't go wrong with these popular colors- dresses or decor


Metallic Party Streamers
Decorate with balloons
Or Clocks
Add number decals to glasses
Tissue Paper Pom-Poms
Do them in black,white, gold & silver

Last but certainly not least..
The Drinks

Keep it classic with this champagne cocktail
Or check out MarthaStewart.com or more recipes.

While we are the topic of New Years, I think it's time to start thinking about our resolutions.
Here's a great way to keep yours posted through-out the year.
Now isn't that clever!

I hope this has inspired you to plan a great-fun-filled party!!

An Upgraded Christmas

Let’s say goodbye to your mother’s Christmas décor.
It’s time to be sophisticated and chic

Timeless colors to use: Gold, White & Silver
Try buying pieces that can be versatile, and used with what you already have, instead of putting the decorations away after the holidays.

A Modern Touch

Christmas doesn't have to be done with those plastic santa's anymore. Try classing it up a bit with a few different things this year.
