New Year’s Eve table
Red is always festive color. Choose red for the decoration of the house and the table of the New Year Eve and create a classic and cheerful scenery.
The Avant-Garde way
A more modern version is a combination of black with gold. Stylish, glamorous and rock oriented, black with gold will give a mystical and festive atmosphere at home and will be the ideal canvas for an unforgettable party.
Whichever color theme you choose for your table, a good idea is to combine different types of cutlery as a forever classic plain white with gold trim with a more fancy patterned, to create an unusual composition in your table.
New Year’s Eve Bar
Do not forget to give proper attention to the bar - as it is the key point for the success of the party after the meal.
To offer a welcome drink definitely puts guests in mood party! A nice idea for welcome cocktail is vanilla cranberry mimosa. See the recipe below.
1 1/2 ounces of vanilla flavored vodka
1 1/2 ounces of cranberry juice
Sparkling wine (I use the sparkling wines of Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyard s)
In a cocktail shaker, combine the vanilla vodka, cranberry juice and ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a champagne flute. Fill the glass to the top with sparkling wine. Garnish if desired.
Treat your guests by setting up a champaign bar so that everyone can choose the champagne that suits him best.
Another idea is to create in the house ... drink spots so that your guests can prepare their drinks and feel like at home! Excellent the martini station with glasses from the collection Montgomery Ralph Lauren Home (image).
Cocktails for everyone
It is important to have cocktails for everyone, even for those who do not drink alcohol. A nice idea is to serve in different glasses to give each cocktail another touch and create a stylish mix & match result. The Baccarat has the solution with the set of glasses «Everyday Baccarat» and «Party in a Box» (image).
Apart from food and drink, a festive gathering it is good to offer also a variety of games and activities that will entertain your guests!
Card Games: Look back the beautiful moments, share funny facts and tender memories from the year that goes by…
New Year Resolutions: Give your guests cards to write down their own New Year Resolutions. Leaving everyone can take away his card as a memory of the evening.
