New Years Eve 2008

I honestly think I’ve been more social in the past week than in the entire year of 2008. Not that I wasn’t social before, but I’ve been as busy as a bee with parties to host, football games to watch and work to finish! In the past week and a half I have hosted three parties including a tailgate at the Cotton Bowl , a Bachelor viewing party and a sorority alumni club wine tasting/drinking party (pics to come). I also attended a NYE party and a bonfire. Seriously, I’m partied out!

For today’s post I am taking a much-needed break from Photo shop and posting my New Year Resolutions. Also enjoy the pic above of me and some girlfriends from New Years Eve. Here they are:

  • Two new passport stamps (at least one to a country I’ve never been before)
  • Send more handwritten notes (keep up to date with birthday cards)
  • Find creative name for and redesign my blog
  • Go to the gym more often
  • Take more bubble baths
  • Take a class to learn a new or improve an old skill  (ballroom dancing, photography, yoga or something)

What you’ll need:

  • Clear cellophane bags
  • Confetti – you can find bulk bags at any party store
  • Colorful noisemakers
  • Colorful dot stickers – available in the office supply section

This theme is a variation of the New Years Reflections theme. This time the table takes on a green and purple color pallet for a striking display! A lot more simplified, this shows you how to change a few elements and make a completely new table!

When I think of New Years Eve, I think of glitz, glam and shine! It’s also a time for new resolutions and reflections on the past year. This party theme is a mixture of both using a bright and shiny color palette with mirrors for added sparkle and to remind us to reflect on the blessings of the past year.
