New Years Fun Decor

New Years is as good an excuse as any to change up my decor. So out with Christmas and in with the sparkle of New Years. I will warn you , this post contains a lot of photos. The party items in this post is all the money I spent, everything else I had. My Christmas theme was red, silver and white, so all I did was take away the red and bring in black. So starting with the mantle, I took out red and added a silver and black ribbon through out my silver mesh. Added party hats, crowns, horns, curling ribbon, black , silver, blingy ornaments, and beads, to make it fun and festive. The mirror above is from Christmas.The flower arrangements are from then too , only remixed with black fur picks that I made and black glittered snow branches, white feather picks , and crystal picks from my Christmas tree and the same glittered white roses and hydrangeas. For the center a couple of years ago I bought mirror squares, so I added glittered 2, 0, 1, 2 in three different colors of black and greys. Double stick tape makes them stay on. I should say the white garland and lights were already on the mantle. Vinyl was from a local shop. Now that the details are given, let me show the final product.

Now onto my Festive Door Decor. I put up white garland, and strung lights thru it. I added white mesh and the same black and silver ribbon as inside. A big mesh bow for the center and party decorations, hats, crowns, horns, curling ribbon and clocks that I made. Silver and black ornaments, and 2012 glasses....for a wee bit of whismsy. Also I wrapped boxes with black and white paper, Added some cardboards letters , that I cut out and glittered, And then mounted them on the boxes. Added a big silver curls that remind me of streamers that fell at midnight, and also some curling ribbon, to complete my celebration of 2012....

And a close up of the wreath. Also made of mesh, flex tubing, a bow made of the same ribbon as door and mantle. I centered a hat with white and black feathers and ribbon accents in middle, added the Happy New Years to top of hat and wired it in the middle. Added a big bow and glittered oranments.

So there it is all glamourized for the New back tomorrow with more ...
