Ringing In The New Year
By • Filed In: New Years, Party

So Christmas has come and gone…how did that happen?! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday spent with loved ones. Ours was a whirlwind filled with great friends and family, phenomenal food, festive cocktails, and lots of laughter. But apparently now it’s time to think about New Years Eve. Personally it is not my favorite holiday. I know I know, I need to get in the spirit of the season… but I just can’t help but want to relax after the craze of the holidays. This year Jeff and I are keeping it casual by going to a friends place where we will all be sporting some comfy pajamas come midnight. But if we were going all out with a fancy schmancy party, these would be my pics for festive decor.

Clockwise from top left:

sparkly sparklers, I heart fringe curtains (and here) as a fun backdrop, cupcake toppers/drink stirrers, I’ve been obsessed with these Gironimo balloons since I first laid eyes on them, fun confetti poppers, cool New Years themed photo booth props, a delicious champagne cocktail

Anyone going to start a resolution for the new year? The gym always becomes crazy packed right after the holiday due to the whole “I’m gonna lose weight” resolution and then slowly tapers off. I’m still trying to decide my resolution. Thankfully I still have a few days!

About the Author

I am a 28 year old Chi-Town city gal living in a cozy condo with my boyfriend, Jeff. Monday through Friday I go by Miss Schmitt, as my main gig is working as a speech-language pathologist at a school in the burbs. Beyond my day job, I adore decorating, finding treasures at flea markets, seeking new adventures in the city, laughing, indulging in anything sweet, and spending time with friends and family (especially my lovely sis, Kali). Read along as I share my hopes, dreams, and outcomes (the good and the bad!).

  • Those photo booth props are too cute! I wish I was throwing a party so I could have a reason to order them!

    I haven’t come up with a resolution yet. But I’m thinking it will be travel related! Can’t wait to see what you come up with for yours!
