HAPPY NEW YEARS! When it comes to hosting a NYE party, there are two options: dress up or casual. Because I love any excuse to dress up (I still love looking at Prom dresses and I'm in my 30s!) my party is going to be just that! So pop open the bubbly and see how I'm hosting NYE at Casa Sees:
Mood: As I mentioned in yesterday's makeup post, I decided on black, gold, and fuchsia. I was inspired by the sparkling, golden champagne; the dark, glittery night; and pink because it's a color I usually don't use!
my glass vase. Use what you have already--I'm using martini, wine, and champagne flutes. These can be purchased for cheap at discount and dollar stores.
Food will be served on the bar in the kitchen, and I'll use my color scheme to decorate with a black table runner, gold tinsel and ribbons.
And balloons because I love balloons.

Lighting: I'm using my twinkly lights from Christmas as well as fuchsia votive holders.
Food: As I mentioned earlier, this isn't a sit-down dinner. Food will be served at the bar, so guests can mingle. Don't stress if you can't/don't have time to cook. There are some great options at the grocery. I'm
attempting making pizza roll ups.
I'm also serving cheddar popcorn, meatballs, hummus and pitas, various dips, a veggie tray, Chicken Chunks, and cheese sticks.Amy into making me some!
Champagne Pomegranate Cocktail (which can be made non-alc).
Music: I wanted an upbeat, danceable playlist. I also added the traditional Auld Lang Syne for after midnight as well as a couple of tunes to slow things down for when people start to leave. Enjoy!
