Although Christmas has not even arrived yet, we already have New Year’s on our minds. With these thoughts comes questions. How should we celebrate this year? What on earth am I going to wear? Don’t stress! This handy-dandy guide is here to help.
Want to rock a classic look this holiday? No problem. You can never go wrong with a little black dress and a sequined blazer.
Tulle circle skirts are another great option for everyone. Easily pair this show-shopping piece with a satin shirt or cropped sequin top.
Live in a warmer climate? A lace or beaded romper with chunky heels makes for a fun and flirty outfit.
On the other hand, if your December 31st is looking cold and windy, you can easily stay warm and still look cute with a pair of satin jeggings and sparkle top. Pair with heels and a moto jacket and you’re all set!
Finally, for makeup, rock that smoky eyeshadow look you’ve been dying to wear! Match with a nude lip and dramatic eyeliner to turn heads all night long.
hostess with the mostess
Throw the best New Year’s Eve party this season with a delicious selection of appetizers and entrees.
For New Year’s, finger foods are your friend. You can easily make them in large quantities and they feed a lot of people. Some options? Saucy meatballs on toothpicks, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and an assortment of dips with veggies and crackers are sure to keep the party going.
Staying up late? Bring on some breakfast items. French toast sticks and deviled eggs are always crowd pleasers.
For beverages, a mix of bubbly and non-alcoholic sparkling cider will be ideal for everyone.
set the mood
Simple, but festive decorations are perfect for this holiday party. Start by hanging curled ribbon from the ceiling, light fixtures and anywhere else you want. Vases filled with glitter always make another nice touch.
Candles, candles, candles! Use flameless candles if you’re worried about a fire hazard. Dim your lighting to make the space feel more intimate.
Everyone loves an activity! Give guests a piece of paper to write down all of their predictions and expectations for the New Year. A photo booth with props is another way to create a playful feel for your party.
The most important rule for your New Year’s Party: have fun! Don’t get too lost in the details. Enjoy the night and your guests will, too!
