Well that's it. My last post of the year!
As New Year's Eve is the last party of the year, I like the idea of partying without the fuss. So here are some glitzy and glam but also super simple ideas, to help you see the end of year celebrations with style and ease.
Come midnight, I'll def. be letting my hair down, be dancing on tables, and be toasting and wishing for a New Year full of fabulous parties, amazing friendships and opportunities! And I hope and wish that your 2013 is equally full of joy, prosperity and full of sparkle! :)

Come New Year I'm all partied out to be honest, so don't fancy slaving away in the kitchen to create a hoard of food for my cocktail party. Yes, I have one of those each year since I can remember! Now that I'm a parent, the party food also has to be tailored to little ones...
This is where the advice of the mighty-wise and fabulous kitchen doyenne Ina Garten, comes in handy: "I make only two appetizers, and assemble the rest!"
So here are two quick and easy recipes I promised in my Glam New Year Party post - One sweet, one savory, and a total hit with young or grown up kids! ;)

Following on from yesterday's New Year's Eve party post, here's a simple and super fun tutorial on how to make Paper Fortune Cookies!
I made these as party favors with best wishes for the New Year inside each, instead of the traditional fortunes - Did not want to be responsible for predicting people's futures! ;)
Check out the step-by-step tutorial below + how to download your FREE New Year's Fortunes to use inside your very own cookies!

Hope you had a fabulous Christmas! ♥
I'm now ready and excited to celebrate the arrival of a New Year, full of great hopes and expectations! And it's with this excitement that I created this Glam New Year's Eve Party Printable Collection - To reflect the fun, pizzazz and sparkle I'm hoping for 2013! :)
I wanted to keep the styling simple and attainable, with table decor and props you might already have around the house at this time of year. Hope you like the ideas + FREE New Year's Eve Resolution Cards!

I love using crepe in my party tables too, it's so versatile and inexpensive! But this tutorial is even simpler than using double-sided tape, and this cute table runner can be made in minutes - only requiring 3 craft materials! The ruffle table runner adds a nice texture and dimension to the table. Here is what you will need to make your own no-sew ruffle table runner...

This one was designed with all you chic and stylish people in mind! ;)
Great for a sophisticated Winter Birthday Party, glitz Holiday Celebrations or a glam New Year's Eve Party!
I wanted something a little more grown-up, with cleaner lines and a "black tie" vibe for this printable collection, and was inspired by Glitter Balls, Sparkly Baubles and Snowballs, hence the Glitter and Snow Party Collection! :)
