Inspiration for your New Year's Eve celebrations

I can't believe we are at the last day of 2015. Where has the year gone?!

As we look forward to the exciting idea of a fresh start, resolutions and new adventures ahead, it is only fitting that we welcome in 2016 with a celebration on New Year's Eve.

We will be having a relaxing day and dinner at home before heading down to Manly to watch the 9 o'clock fireworks with the boys. I love to celebrate an occasion so even though we will be having a simple night I will be adding some special touches.
Sparklers and party poppers have been bought, champagne and nibbles are waiting in the fridge, glow sticks are ready to wave around and 2016 crowns are waiting to be worn. 

Below I've put together a few ideas to inspire your own New Year's Eve celebrations - 


At home celebrations are even better when the drinks table is nearby and the champagne is on ice within easy reach.


Simple decorations like streamers or banners can really set the party mood.


I love this drinks table. A big bowl of punch for people to help themselves.
 One day I will get around to doing the champagne bubble wall!


I always like to do a welcome cocktail. This jug of strawberry sangria looks delish!
Recipe here. Or you can try my favourite white wine sangria. Recipe here


You can't go past a big board of antipasto to nibble on.


The roasted beet hummus looks divine! That colour! Recipe here




A casual but cute outfit. Leopard dress from here, the rest found here


How fun would it be to set up a photo booth to capture some memories of the night? 


Dessert on a stick is always a hit!


Or an easy no bake dessert. Recipes here




I love the idea of having a movie area to keep the kids entertained.


Or maybe a picnic surrounded by balloons?!

What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

I hope you all have an amazing night!
