Happy New Year!

I always enjoy New Year's Eve. I am excited to enjoy an evening counting down to the new year and enjoying appetizers. I have spent the last couple of days carefully packing away my Christmas decorations and today we spent time putting out a few sparkly decorations for New Years Eve.

When I was Christmas shopping a couple of weeks ago I picked up some cute gold, silver and black party hats and blowers and shiny beads. I brought out the glittered clocks that I made last year.

I found really cute mustache paper straws, and decided to keep out the glittered animals I made for Christmas, they look good with all the sparkly New Years decorations.

The kids are having friends over to play games and hang out. I am looking forward to watching The Hundred-Foot Journey, I saw this movie in theaters for Gary and my anniversary this year, it is a wonderful movie. I have been looking forward to it coming out on DVD and thought New Year's Eve would be a fun night to watch this movie again. This movie is really inspiring and is just a treat, beautiful scenery, beautiful food, interesting and rich cultures, I would highly recommend it!

For appetizers and goodies I am making a batch of Super Easy Puff Pastry Cinnamon Palmiers  which is a favorite family treat.

I also make crescent dough wrapped brie and bacon wrapped dates, which I serve with baguette and crackers, and grapes, this is a treat I look forward to every New Year's Eve. 

I am really looking forward to 2015, I love the start to a new year! I have a lot of fun plans for this upcoming year, as well as resolutions. :) I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year's Eve, and Happy New Year!!
