CELEBRATE: with quick changes to holiday decor for NYE!
Hi rosy buds!
This holiday weekend has been a low key one for us. My husband and I are enjoying downtime with our three-year-old daughter. We are not planning to go out tonight for NYE… just get in our jammies, cook, relax and stay inside on this cold night.
One thing our daughter loves to do, however, is to throw ‘parties’! She loves her kitchen and play table and is frequently hosting birthday and Halloween parties in her playroom. So, this morning we did decorate a little for the NYE holiday. We threw a mini “noon-years-eve” countdown for my daughter today with our in-laws. Netflix had a cute holiday countdown that we showed prior to nap time. It was simple and sweet and she had a ball!
In case you have a party or get together planned tonight and needed a few easy NYE decor ideas, I thought I’d show you the simple decor changes I made to our kitchen. I removed some of our Christmas decor and added few sparkly party items for NYE. You may have these items around the house or you may consider saving these ideas for next year.
Mini disco ball ornaments (that I got in my holiday decor haul) became a fun garland with gold wire.
Four gold dollar store frames filled with glittery paper became a 2018 sign using dry erase markers.
Glitter painted champagne glasses and other glassware held party favors, blowers and sparkly baubles.
That super glittery champagne bottle you see is actually a giant confetti popper. Isn’t it awesome??!?? I found it at Walmart in the party section. I did a double take because it is the exact shape and size of a champagne bottle.
(Some of you may remember that a few years ago I did cover a real champagne bottle with glitter. It was a fun idea and would be perfect for NYE or a holiday hostess gift.)
We did not fire the confetti off yet… maybe we will before the day is over… part of me doesn’t want to ruin the bottle and save it for next year!
My daughter also helped me make a “Happy New Year” garland. This lighted clip strand (that I also picked up at Walmart) is a clever way to make easy sayings or garland. I can’t wait to reuse it for other holidays!
Holidays have taken on a new meaning in our house these days. It’s been fun watching our daughter take them in every year! I love it!
And before I go this year…
From the bottom of my heart, I want to wish you all a happy 2018! Thank YOU so much for spending time with me this past year and your readership/viewership! It means a great deal! Happy New Year!
