The streamers and "best night ever" garland came together first, but what's a photo booth without some great props? Next on my list- gather ALL THE PROPS.
I made the party hats a couple days before the party, after finding a template online, picked up a pack of poppers at Target, along with the party beads. I did my best to throw together some props on skewers but I think they turned out kinda 'meh'. Except the picture of LC with the kissy lips: That one turned out amaze.
After I began nailing down what I wanted our party to be like, I knew I needed to get the word out to our guests. For the people we wanted to include, making a private Facebook event was all we needed. Plus, everyone was able to share what they were bringing, along with their excited RSVPs. Easy Peasey! I tried to set the tone via the cover image, shown below.
The day of our party I posted the following image in the FB event. Part reminder/part warning. :)
I used to hold a LOT of expectations around New Years Eve being a perfect night. (Heads up, perfect isn't possible.) For the most part, Jason and I have had good NYEs as a couple. And this year we agreed that hosting our friends over for a night of drinks, food, and fun would be just the way to say good-bye to 2014. I knew right away I wanted our guests to be comfortable. Ingredient #1: loungewear, pajamas, sweats. But I also felt like being fancy; because, duh. Ingredient #2: sparkles, champagne glasses, silver and gold decor. The final result? a paGLAMa party.
Check out the pins I used as inspiration!
