Whoever’s noticed that this is NYE party inspiration, and that it’s Christmas Eve right now – you are right. But srsly; nobody should still be trying to pull together a holiday party at this hour and from scratch. Not to mention holding a Christmas party on Christmas Eve is like holding a wedding over Thanksgiving weekend. You are not an animal.
Aright. Let’s get serious. Because I have some lovely + glitzy + tasty inspiration for your New Year’s Eve party celebration thing. If you’re having one of those. And if you are, and you live in Colorado, which is where we’ll be on New Year’s Eve – I love your shoes! You look really nice today. Oh so I hear you’re having a NYE party, is that right? I just so happen to be in the area that night, we should talk…
The Facts: today’s inspiration shoot was sent in by Andrea of Gray Harper Event Maker, and features photography by Jade & Matthew Take Pictures. You may remember some of Andrea’s DIY contributions to the blog – because they were killer. Ok, here are a few words about the shoot from Andrea:
This New Year’s Eve inspired inspiration shoot is perfect for a small party but also has some great wedding related details. We were inspired by all things glitter and the cobalt blue and neon yellow that’s been popping around in fashion lately. We love that all the colors together really worked but were also a little out of the ordinary. We loved adding New Years streamers everywhere…bursting out of the drawers, hanging from the ceiling, and even in the boutonniere. Our design wouldn’t have been complete without glitter everywhere, of course, we even covered the noise makers with some! The dessert & cocktail buffet sits atop a vintage white dresser. We had delicious macarons, fun rock candy sticks in every champagne glass, noise makers popping out of the flowers, and the signage designed by Samantha Huba really tied everything together.
For the neon glassware – neon was added to the shot glasses by dipping the glass bottoms in neon paint, and then letting it run down the sides, until dry.
Jade McCully captured this shoot in such a soft beautiful way. She knows how to get the perfect detail shots!
Hope you enjoyed the inspiration! Happy New Years Y’all!
Thanks, Andrea! Commence the awesome:
What’d you think of the shoot inspiration? And just because I’m curious; what are your New Year’s Eve plans?
I’ll be blogging more this week, but if we don’t cross paths, I hope everyone enjoys their mistletoe and midnight kisses! Cheers to making out with strangers, ya filthy animals!
