Okay, Cakies. How completely fun is this whole NYE party situation?! We kinda outdid ourselves in our latest with Crate and Barrel, but can you blame us? New Year’s Eve is a perfect time to break out any entertaining pieces you recently obtained via your Registry, and closing out the year you were married in celebration is a must in our books. Plus, Crate and Barrel just came out with a whole line of NYE-perfect cocktail party goods, including festive little details like tassels and balloons to spice things up. Right up our alley, obvs! Here’s how to pull it off…
First tip? Confetti. There must ALWAYS be confetti. A few Party Gold Confetti Poppers should do the trick. And like we said above, you can snag the tissue streamers, entire set of balloons and stars and glitter and allll that on site.
To go with our cocktail party theme, we were all about the small bites (thanks to the incredible crew at Room Forty), since snacking and mingling and sipping is what NYE is all about. You can fancy up your own spread by using an array of platters like our French Kitchen Marble Rectangle Tray for serving up cocktail shrimp cups or the very New Year’s Eve party-appropriate Lux Gold Platter for some canapés.
Also, super easy way to beautify your cheese plate: edible flowers. It’s all in the details, fellow hosts!
These Gabriel Brass Taper Candle Holders really make the tablescape in our opinions. You can’t not add a pair of them to your Gift Registry after seeing how they bring the whole scene together, huh? We know.
This gold + black party dress was a sweet Rent the Runway find. So chic!
Knowing what a classic theme black + gold is for New Year’s Eve, the floral arrangements by Stella Bloom Designs added an element of surprise (and extra prettiness!) to our table. So if you’re into achieving a similar look, be sure to dream up a fun accent color to go with the gold used in your place settings (Gold-Plated Chargers and Jasper Gold 20-piece Flatware are pictured above).
The Jars Tourron Black Salad Plate deserves a call-out here, right? These will elevate any tabletop, guaranteed. You’ll have ’em out long after the confetti and gold chargers are put away, so be sure to add a full set to the list.
Cannot believe we’re cheersing to 2018 right about now, can you?!
