Ringing in the New Year

Despite knowing that New Years Eve comes each and every year at the same time… I can’t help but to never have plans made in advance.  This year was no exception, and 24 hours before the ball dropped we through together an impromptu get together and scored a table for 12 at a local restaurant. 

What does one do who worked a 9 hour day on NYE and got home an hour before everyone was about to show up?!  Throw together an impromptu dessert bar (we luckily we’re going out to dinner and only needed to host cocktails and dessert):

– Oreo Cake (just stack Oreos in the shape of a cake)


– Champagne Jello Shots


– Rice Krispie Treats


– Red Gummy Candys


I went with a Red-Black-Champagne colored theme for the night and just lit a bunch of candles and brought in fresh flowers.  Nothing crazy… but it helped add to the fun of ringing in 2013!  Cheers!
