I’m completely surprised that Christmas has already come and gone and it’s almost New Year’s Eve… seriously, does time seem like it’s flying to you too? I’m a huge fan of Peacock Blue (or Turquoise or Robin’s Egg Blue or whatever you want to call it!) so I’ve enjoyed seeing it as such a popular trend in stores right now. All the sparkly peacock’s that I’ve been seeing are ideal for ringing in the New Year, so I am happy to present to you a sparkly Peacock Blue Happy New Year’s Eve Party!
For the table I began with a large piece of sequin fabric as a table cloth. Next I layered on a sequined round placemat (from Target), my silver chargers from my how to paint plastic chargers project, a couple of mixed china plates, a silver fan, and twinkle type letters spelling out “2013”. (It makes it so “real” to see the new date, doesn’t it!) I tossed in a couple of glittery pinecones which add a sweet little accent and tie in to the centerpiece.
The glassware is an eclectic mix of shapes – I don’t pay too much attention to what a glass might “really” be meant for. Here I’ve got a flute, a brandy snifter and a small tumbler. I love all of them but was especially excited when I found these antique tumblers last Fall – they’re in my kitchen colors of blue & green! How could I resist?
For the centerpiece, I found two glittered peacock’s at Marshalls and these blue sequin balls at Michael’s and knew they were the makings of the perfect focal point for my New Year’s Eve table. A few mixed sizes of silver ball ornaments and a trio of my silver wire christmas trees and of course those glittered pinecones round it all out!
I’ve nested all of this sparkly goodness in a vintage mirrored vanity tray.
I used some of the extra tumblers as votives on the table – I love how the candles glow in them.
Of course since it’s such a special occasion I thought a champagne & cupcakes bar would be fun.
On that same trip to Marshall’s when I found the glittery peacock’s I also found this ah-mazing champagne bucket. I adore this bucket!! Isn’t it perfect for New Year’s Eve?
For this party theme I’ve filled the bucket with faux snow. (I use ‘snow-in-seconds‘ which is such a cool product by the way.) Then I tucked in a bottle of bubbly and some champagne coupes. (I like the plastic coupe cups with the removable bottoms for this. That way you can stake them in the “snow” and then have the bottoms nearby when a guest grabs one to drink.) For fun color I filled some with blue soda and took some photos but then I also filled them with golden bubbly to show you how charming that looks too!
Also, just for fun, I filled these glasses with snow and a sparkly stirrer!
This faux snow has the perfect snowy texture without too much mess!
A sparkly stirrer certainly sets the party tone!
As does a glittery crown or two!
A chalkboard sign and some store bought cupcakes topped with “2013” are an easy way to make this a perfect Champagne & Cupcakes New Year’s Eve bar.
This cheese server is moonlighting as a snow server, just because I think it’s pretty.
I love old-fashioned decor and sentiments and I especially wanted to infuse a bit of nostalgia in the banner so I chose the saying “Auld Lang Syne”.
This sign was simple to make with ribbon, twinkle type letters & my glue gun.
And there you have my Sparkling Peacock Blue Happy New Year’s Eve Party!
