Are you ready to celebrate the new year?! If you can’t quite make it till midnight, maybe you can host a new years day brunch instead. This party submitted by Teresa of Rex & Regina Events should provide some inspiration. I particularly love the printed New Years sign above the dessert table. Subway art is so classic and cool.
You don’t even need to feel pressured to host this on January 1st. I think a weekend brunch to celebrate the arrival of a new year is just as appropriate. Check out the details and ideas below…
From Teresa: “Each year we host a special New Year’s Day Brunch at our home. A brunch is perfect for our friends — many of whom have small children and aren’t up for fighting for a babysitter to go out the night before. For the brunch, we have babysitters on hand who play games and make crafts with the children, allowing their parents some time to catch up with friends while their children are safe and having fun. A special children’s buffet is always appreciated — sandwiches stamped out in shapes and juice boxes are an easy, simple start.
Silver is a classic New Year’s color. Here we made a custom sequin runner with chiffon ruffles which lines the sideboard where the desserts were displayed. Glittery ornaments hang from the ceiling and over the windows. White flowers accented with silver touches like brunia pods and dusty miller help tie the florals to the color scheme.
A make-your-own champagne-cocktail bar is perfect for this festive occasion. From a mimosa to a Kir Royale to a St Germaine cocktail, guests create a drink to their taste. Of course, drink stirrers wrapped with silver garland always make for a festive way to finish off the cocktail!
We always keep the menu simple (but plentiful!) — think frittatas, ham, asparagus, fruit salad — and incorporate seasonal items like an eggnog tiramisu for the dessert bar.
A little sparkle, some good food, and friends? What better way to celebrate the first day of the new year!”
Thanks for sharing this special party with us, Teresa.
How will you all be celebrating the new year?
