Can i just talk REAL quick about how boring last year's New Years Eve was? I got off of work at 7, Jose worked til 10. I went to Stop & Shop and got us to individual Pizzeria Uno deep dish pizzas and warmed it up in time for when he got out of work. We had only been engaged a week so started talking about our "budget" and how we'd pay for things. The ball dropped. We had sex. Went to bed!
It was kinda nice and romantic, just us two... but still! lol
Well this year we are having 4 people over the house [our usual! his brother and sister-in-law and our best friends] and I can't just have them over! I gotta do it up! But my budget is TIGHT! Seriously.. I wanted to spend no more than $20 for when they came. So I really wanted to set the mood with my table. So I had my clean slate...
I picked a theme of doing a silver and blue new years eve table. So I grabbed every thing silver and blue I had in my house, plus any New Years Eve goodies I had in the basement, any thing I could use to "decorate" and the $10 worth of goodies I bought at the dollar tree and K-mart.
And here's what I got!
The blowers are in a hurricane I have filled with lifesavers! You know... for the midnight kiss :) I got 8 blowers for a dollar
I used the silver and big blue ornaments with blue and silver party hats around my IKEA candle blocks I bought years ago plus a silver charger i got for like $2 at Kmart. Boom!
And I stole this idea from Martha Stewart but I still like how it came out.
Oh and I got the champange covered. Jose has this big ass bottle of champagne [which he actually told me this morning im not allowed to open until we find out we're pregnant lol im like dumb ass! i cant drink when im pregnant!] Plus 6 champagne cups I've had laying around the house... seriously...
Yess I am ready for New Years Eve!! And one of my resolutions is to TAKE MY GOD DAMN PICTURES!! Since I felt yesterday's post really LACKED in the things we actually did all year cos I had no pictures!
So you WILL see pictures of New Years Eve!
