NYE: Gold & Glitter

Happy new year! This year, my friend and I had opted to host a small party to pass the new year. We decided to class it up with gold, glittery, and anything shiny. Thanks to a few visits to Ikea, World Market, and our storage closet, we managed to put together a neat little table.

Photography: not my forté.

For decor, I scattered milk chocolate gold coins and leftover ornaments from our 3-4ft Christmas tree around the house. Gold taper candles do set the mood well. We celebrated the new year with good friends and company, a few bottles of Premier Cru from Veuve Fourny & Fils, a sweets platter from Porto's, 2.5 lbs of cheese from Andrew's, a very strong sangria concoction, and pizza (of course). :)

Bringing in the new year with seven hanging orbs, one melting clock-a-ticking, three teddy bears, two kissing fish, two Commonwealth plushies, one mini angel, a woman dressed in le smoking, AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.

Cheers to the new year. :)
