Happy New Year

We held our 7th annual new year’s eve party last night, but this was the first year I have remembered to take pictures of all of my decorations.

In the foyer, guests are greeted with tinsel-clad wooden numbers of the year we are ringing in.  On the small table, I put out crystal clocks, champagne glasses and a disco ball ornament on a silver-sequined tablecloth.

In the living room, I hang a lighted sphere over the TV to mimic the ball that drops at midnight.  On the table below, I draped a gold sequined table runner and lit gold and silver mercury glass votive holders.  I also set out glittered noise makers, hats and tiaras.  I glittered a mirrored tray on which I set ‘midnight kisses’ and Ferrera Rochers.

We set up a drink table with a sequined table runner (and a clear tablecloth protector to guard against water rings).  I glittered a mason jar to hold the gold paper straws and I put a rock candy stick in each of the champagne glasses.  I made drink stirrers out of skewers and tinsel.  I found the Cheers shot glasses they are in at Target this year.

It was a fun night with friends that I enjoy every year.  We wish you a Happy New Year!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
