the one with new years eve plans

I know Christmas hasn’t passed yet, but New Years eve is right around the corner. I can’t imagine not being awake to ring in the new year! It’s a fresh start, a new beginning, and the end of what was hopefully a year of big and good things in life.

I also fell in love with my iron man 4 years ago on New Years Eve. It feels like I’ve known him forever, but it’s only been 4 years! <3 heart eyes<3

As much as I like to get dressed up and could use a reason to buy a new tulle skirt, I can think of nothing better than a relaxing night at home with friends. Here’s my new years eve plans . . .


I feel like these invites give off exactly the vibe we’re going for. Plus we can just email them all from our couch . . .




Until the past couple years, new years eve was usually spent out at bars. So to keep our pallets with what they are accustomed to, we’ll be serving bar food. Pizza. wings. popcorn. nachos. Each main thing with customizable toppings, pizza bar, popcorn bar, nacho bar,  . . . see what I did there

For dessert we’ll keep it simple! hot chocoloate bar, cupcake clock, maybe some fruity tarts



Beer. and beer. o! and water for the lady with child that will be there. that lady is not me . . . I’ll be drinking these champagne cocktails with a star stirrer.





Pj’s is where it’s at ya’ll. not your naughtiest . . . your comfiest. I will most likely wear a sparkly tank top and my purple velour pants from 1999. Style and comfort.

I’ll probably keep it simple here too, but considering my love for decorating at all the holidays I probably won’t. The mantel will definitely get some fun updates with some garland, the chalkboard, and some fun photo props! This isn’t a mantel – I know – but it’s my inspiration for our photobooth/mantel and the buffet.




I’ll probably play it fast and loose as far as activities. We’ll have the board games out, maybe some minute to win it games ready, movies picked out, and a hot play list on at all times. But other than that we’ll see what the night might bring 🙂

What are your plans for new years eve?
