Last Minute Style Points for New Year's Eve

.
Want to add one more touch to your NYE party tonight? Whether you're having a few people over for dinner or have a larger group for a cocktail party, menus always add a lot to the design. A lot for a little, I might add. In other words, DON'T FREAK OUT - you still have time to type something up and print them out.


I whipped up this one for our small dinner party tonight (sorry it's so fuzzy!) at our house. Pictures to come later but imagine if you will...there is a one inch hole punched in the top. Don't ya know that one inch hole fits perfectly over the pointy top of a coordinating party hat on each plate to create a standing menu? Love it.

Wanna know a secret? I can't bear to take down my Christmas centerpiece yet so NYE is getting coordinated around it. Use what you have!

.
Not doing dinner? If you're having a cocktail party, just print up the menu to match your theme (colors and fonts are your best friend) and frame in frames you already have at home. Place on the buffet and you're all set. Don't forget to make one for the drinks, too.
.
Whatever you do tonight - have fun and be safe!
.
Here's to a new year full of new adventures!
.
Cheers,
Amy

You put us all to shame. Thank you for the wonderfully creative decoration ideas (BTW - they are even better in person.) Thanks for the fabulous time NYE.
