New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year where you can wear an obnoxious amount of sequins and get away with it. This New Year’s Eve I brought that same attitude to my decor.

IMG_3231 Diamond pattered wrapping paper used as an inexpensive and disposable tablecloth.

IMG_3243  Gold spray-painted mason jars filled with white roses

IMG_3234A karaff filled with a simple champagne cocktail (vodka, champagne & grenadine) sits at drinking station #1.

IMG_3170 Draped wrapping paper and a New Year’s Eve banner completely transforms my dining room nook. IMG_3197Banner made out of card-stock, acrylic paint, glittered ribbon and some close-pins.

IMG_3202Sequined fabric makes for the perfect New Year’s Eve tablecloth. A spray-painted vase and a framed photo of a Hersey “Kiss” wrapper adds spunk to this holiday tablescape.

IMG_3195Half price ornaments found the day after Christmas adds some depth to my basic chandelier. IMG_3217Adding a framed photo makes your table a bit more personal. Some classic champagne, silver trays and small gold christmas ornaments make up drinking station #2.

IMG_3221No champagne would be complete without its own personal faux fur stole?

Happy 2013!

        Thank you! I love the idea of painting the mason jars and using wrapping paper as an alternative for a disposable table cloth. Fab!

    Ohmygosh. ALL of my wine bottles need faux fur stoles! Fabulous! And I totally agree with wearing an obnoxious amount of sequins and getting away with it. I’m kicking myself for not buying a sequin jacket I saw over the weekend, just to wear on NYE (or whenever I need a sequined jacket pick-me-up).

    I have no idea how I managed to drink champagne without a fur stole until now! But thank you for opening my eyes 😉

    I love those simple and affordable ways to transform your interior for a party, the holidays, a birthday…The idea of using wrapping paper as wallpaper is just great. I am going to share some pictures of your New Year’s Eve party post on my blog tomorrow. Make sure to take a look. 🙂

    I totally love all the black and white patterns! But I think my favorite touch has to be the gold mason jars with white flowers. So pretty!
