Celebrating the New Year with Glitter + Gold

I’m delighted this morning to be sneaking in one final dose of holiday inspiration from the amazing Kate Martin of Beautiful Days. (Revisit Kate’s ice skating party and Christmas celebration for more of her inspired party ideas.) This holiday celebration, decked out in homemade paper chain garland and loads of sparkle and shine from glitter and mercury glass, is full of festive ideas perfect for New Year’s Eve. Pick a monochromatic color palette with as much glitz as you can find for major impact, then set up a prosecco bar and let guests mix up their own special New Year’s eve cocktails and if you’ve got an instant party.
