New Years Party Decor - LOTS OF PICS

So the hubby surprised me this morning and took all 3 kids out to run errands for 4 1/2 hours!  I was in decorating heaven without having three LO's at my feet. I got the place decorated and ready for our NYE family party tonight.  I only gave myself a $ 30 budget for the party for decor and I spent less than that!  I used things we had from previous years, stuff around the house and at the last minute (this morning) decided to go with the Candyland Theme for the kids part of the party.  This was FUN and EASY and cost me nothing...so here goes...enjoy! (I will post pictures tomorrow of the party itself)


This was a project I did at Thanksgiving time and have been using it ever since. Taking a plastic charger plate and painted chalkboard paint over it. Writing with my awesome Chalkboard markers (found at the craft store).

Some decor in my 3 tiered French Basket where the drinks will be.

Picture of our window in the kitchen looking out at the deck. Drinks for the upstairs guests...I pur…

New Years Party on a tight budget - Sneak Peak IDEAS!

So Christmas has come and gone and we have mostly De-Christmased the house of all decorations (including 6 trees!)  Budget is real tight now until hubby gets his bonus (March)...however, we always do something for New Years and for the last two years the hubby and myself have hosted an adult only News Years gathering at our home. It was all church family couples. This year we changed it up.  We invited FAMILIES with children and will be hosting a family party. Starting a little earlier (6 pm) and having fun stuff for the kiddies to do as well as the adults. So I gave myself a $ 30 decorating/gifts budget (not including food)...done real good, I did!  Here is a sneak peak at what I have been working on:


Michael's Craft Store - small place card holders - make great decor for a small apothecary jar.

Goodie bags for the parents to take home. Found these adorable tuxedo bags (nice and hard too) in the bridal section of our local Dollar Tree. 10 for $ 1.00  BLING!

Icebreaker mints - stuck …
