I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve! Its hard to believe its 2012 already. To ring in the New Year I decided to put together a cocktail party.

Inspiration: My inspiration for this table setting came from I enjoyed reading the tips that were provided in the "20 Last Minute New Year's Eve Party Ideas" article, which was written by Sierra Marquina. I really liked how the table settings pictured in the article incorporated New Year's tiaras and noise makers into the centerpieces, which is a fun and inexpensive way to spruce up a New Year's eve table. I also liked the gold glitter candles that were featured in various pictures and was very excited when I found gold and silver glitter candles at B&J Florist Supply. 

Décor: This table setting was focused around the New Year's  tiaras, noise makers and the 2012 glasses. I also added some gold and silver glitter votives, silver metallic taper candles, silver polka dot plates(One of my favorite items on the table) and I also used champagne glasses that I filled with silver plastic metallic bead necklaces.
