I have been a bit quiet around here this past week, since taking some time off before Christmas, I have really truly just been relaxing! Mr. Beau and I stayed in London for Christmas. My in laws visited and we ate a lot, went to Westminster Abbey for Christmas Eve service, drank lots of yummy champagne, did some shopping, went to see the Nutcracker, took a long walk, all in all, it was a nice Christmas. I missed my family in the States a lot, but the thought of not having to deal with Christmas travel was quite nice. Now that Christmas has flashed by, it is time to ring in the New Year ahead of and with some style! With such a fun filled busy year behind us, I think we may be celebrating at home with lots of bubbly and confetti at our own place. A few weeks ago I put together a few ideas on entertaining at home and added in lots of sparkle from West Elm and styled it with lots of glitter from me.
Just because you are hosting a small at home party, does NOT mean your guests should not dress in sparkles and dance the night away! Jennifer with Jennifers Paper made me the pretty NYE invites to make the small get together a bit more formal and get guests excited.
I put together little bags for guests to bring home that included: homemade espresso doughnuts, chocolate champagne bottles, notepads to write down your dreams & wishes for 2016 and of course sparkly noisemakers for the bash!
