What are you doing new year’s eve? | part one

So here we are, less than one week away from closing out 2012 and ringing in 2013!  It’s been quite a year all around, and for me personally it’s been a year of positive change and growth, something I have woken-up grateful for everyday and will work build on in 2013.   More on that later…

As we embark on this time of self-reflection from 2012 along with an opportunity to identify what we want to continue to build on or change for the year ahead we also make choices as to how we will welcome the beginning of a new year.

So with that,  what are you doing New Year’s Eve?  

I have entertained for several years on this celebratory occasion and it is one of my favorite events of the year to host.  The glitter, champagne, celebration of your friends’ accomplishments collectively and toasting in a new year with your loved ones in your own home is what NYE is all about to me.   This year, I am still on the fence.  A big part of me would be happy with an intimate dinner in, which would be a switch for me. What I can tell you is that if I do host a soiree, I’ve identified several details to include in the mix.  So should you be planning to host/hostess NYE this year, here is some inspiration to add personalization, style and a great level of detail to your soiree.
