Happy almost New Year, we hope you have been enjoying this wonderful week after Christmas! There is something so very magical about New Year’s Eve, all of the excitement & wonder about the new chapter that will begin at midnight. And while we have celebrated many years out on the town, we now look so forward to ringing in the New Year at home. We invite a few close friends & family over, enjoy some good food & tunes, and of course, pop some champagne!
We have teamed up once again with our friends at Jonathan Louis Furniture to bring you a little NYE inspiration, which starts with a cozy spot in front of the fireplace. Pulling together a few comfy chairs, like these luxurious Turner chairs, allows for the best conversation among friends. My husband would favor these high arm rests, while I would mostly drool over the beautiful jewel toned fabric. If you’re like us, a coffee table isn’t always an option, so a great upholstered bench in the center of the room is a perfect alternative for both kicking up your feet or using to set up your drinks, appetizers & games. It also doubles as a bench at the dinner table if extra seating is needed, which tends to always happen at our house. Throw on a record or one of your favorite movies (we love The Holiday!) and you are all set for a perfect New Year’s Eve at home. Don’t forget the noisemakers, sparklers or a good old fashioned kiss underneath the mistletoe at midnight!
And if you have kids and are looking for fun ways to involve them in NYE festivities, they could work on making fun party hats & celebrate “noon” years eve, confetti & balloon drop optional. I can’t wait to celebrate with our girls this year!
Would love to hear your NYE plans, do you have any fun plans or traditions for ringing in 2016?! Cheers, friends!! XO9
