New Year's Eve Party Anyone?

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. -Hal Borland

The years keep slipping by me.  A few months ago I realized I was actually a year older than I had thought! {I am blaming that one on my son who took over my birthday}.  It is almost 2011, and of course Martha never fails with her  great party ideas!  I am loving this bubble wrap idea.  isn't this a great way to let the kiddos have some fun without the mess of confetti {my body tenses up all over at the sight of that stuff, ugh what a mess!}, and with all of the Christmas packages there is sure to be an abundance laying around. 


I am cheap love using what you've got laying around why not turn that beautiful wrapping paper into decorations {except if they come from my Grandma who got a good deal on wrapping about forty years ago, and is still using the stuff}.

For the older kiddos this would be a great way to keep them out of your hair entertained.  They seem pretty simple to make, and ahh seriously I can't get enough of pretty paper!

again, why didn't I think of that?

Most years we are in Colorado ringing in the new year with our family.  We stayed home this Christmas though, and in all honesty the Christmas decorations are probably going to double as New Year's decorations.



  1. Great minds think alike! Have a wonderful day my dear!

  2. Love the idea of using Christmas wrapping paper to create New Year's decor.

    It's all really beautiful. x

  3. Great ideas- we'll be home with the kids for New Year's and I'm definitely using Christmas decor until then- hope you have a fabulous week!

  4. Martha has such amazing ideas!!! I write about her all the time.

    Happy New Year!


I would love to hear from you
