Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Style

With all the Christmas preparations happening it is easy to leave NYE planning until last minute…but now is the time to organise what you need  – so to help you get organised I’m sharing some NYE party supplies early to ensure they will arrive in time!

New Year’s Eve celebrations are one of my favourite – there is something special about a new year beginning and celebrating with close family or friends!

Our little ones are still quite little however for those of you with slightly older kids it is a perfect chance to organise a gathering that doesn’t centre just around the kids!  It’s a chance to get together with friends and family, letting the kids stay up a little longer than usual before having a slumber party on the floor, and then it’s all about letting the adults relax into the New Year with a more adults only style occasion (aka, champagne!).

When I look back at all the many amazing new trends in themes we’ve seen this year, there’s one in particular that I’ve been saving for NYE and just screams sophistication and ‘Happy New Year’ to me, and that’s the classic black and metallics with a touch of marble. Adult opulence at it’s best!

So if like me, you’ve had a big year of parties filled with flamingos, doughnuts and unicorns and are just craving something a little more grown up, I’ve sourced the perfect pieces from our LLC Vendors to pull together the perfect New Year’s Eve celebration for the adults (and kids, until bedtime!) so you can start your planning now, and have something to look forward to after the Christmas ham is finished.

 

New Year’s Eve Decorations

Whether it’s a backyard BBQ, seafood buffet or canapés after watching the fire works, this theme looks stunning in the evening as the metallics shimmer and glisten when styled with plenty of candles, and black or metallics make a great backdrop for these to pop against in the evening.

So start with black as your base, and build on it with hints of metallic (either gold or silver) and marble accents for depth and interest. Use your marble kitchen bench top, a black trestle table or one covered with a table cloth for a more polished look, and create drama and interest with varying heights of stands and platters to serve your food, or set an opulent dinner table complete with candle light.

Whilst it’s always nice to bring out your best dinner set (you know, the one you received for your wedding that’s still in the box ?) no one wants to be washing dishes on New Year’s Day – so opt for some stylish disposables instead!
