More often than not, if someone in my family is throwing a party, I’m the first person to know about it. This is mostly due to the fact that I can style the sh*t out of just about anything.
That said, my brother and his wife always host parties – but they really wanted to go all out for this one. Of course, going all out still means there is a budget to be had.
For the most part, I can make just about anything. The photo below are some of the items I made for the event. The only thing I actually spent money on (this of course, does not include design/ setup time) were balloons, candles, helium and beads/ blowers.
I always think it’s fun to do things that are interactive – so of course, being New Years Eve, it only made sense to have: 1) gold tinsel filled glassine bags. These were a huge hit and not hard to clean, since it wasn’t tiny bits of confetti. 2) Photobooth prop – CENSORED. Love? Love! 3) Celebrate party hats. These weren’t hard to make, just time consuming. If I could do it again, I wouldn’t spend the time making these.. lol. 4) TATTOOS! Who doesn’t love temp tattoos, esp. ones filled with such aspirational motivational sayings for the 2014??
& the photo above is how I styled the event. I didn’t take as many photos as I could have, since people showed up early, but that’s okay. I had a great time and everyone loved the decor, so my job was done. <3
Hope you all had an amazing NYE!!
