New Year’s Eve Countdown Ideas

Hello there friends! Are you all set for Christmas or still bustling around like myself? We are down to just over a week before Christmas and then before you know it we are flying into a new year! Is it really only a few weeks away? As 2018 quickly approaches, I gathered up some fun New Year’s Eve Countdown Ideas that you can pin or bookmark for right after Christmas.

Most of these ideas are already, or can be adapted to be, kid-friendly. So if you are like me and will have the kids around, these ideas are great and most can be put together pretty quickly and simply.

DIY New Year’s Eve Photo Booth

Hi there, friends!
I have a FUN and CHEAP idea for you to help you ring in the New Year! Usually we spend our NYE at home eating and playing games. I wanted to add something new to our celebrations this year but I didn’t have much money to spend on the festivities. Here’s what I came up with…
Super fun, right?
Supplies:
White plastic table cloth
Colorful card stock
Colorful tissue paper
Wooden skewers
Twine
Tape
Yarn
Push pins
Rhinestones
 Craft Paint
Circle sponge brush
Scissors
Hot glue gun & sticks
Silhouette 
*Almost all items I had on hand already. I just went through my craft stash.*
I used my Silhouette (favorite crafting tool EVER…what would I do without her?) to cut out all of the photo props, hats and banner. 
I hot glued the skewers to the photo props and the pennants to twine to make the banner.
I added rhinestones and paint polka dots (craft paint + circle sponge brush) for a little something extra.
For the hats, I added yarn to tie them to our heads (since I had it on hand) and made tissue paper pom-poms to add to the tops of the hats. 
For our “photo booth,” I hung a white plastic table cloth from the wall using push pins.
And then we went to crazytown with the paper props and hats…
We used my iPhone to take all of the photos and then I used a fun app for the edits (FotoLR3)…
I LOVE the way they all turned out! Too fun.
There you go friends! 
A FUN and simple way to ring in the New Year at home with the family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a SAFE and HAPPY New Year’s Eve!

Food-a-licious Friday {103} NYE Veggie Tray

Hi friends!!
Did you all have a beautiful Christmas? I’ve taken a little break from blogland this week so that I can spend lots of time with family and really take the whole Christmas experience in. My daughter is 4 1/2 and Christmas was SO fun and memorable for her (as us) this year. We are blessed!
Today I am stopping by to share an EASY and cute way to ring in the New Year with a veggie tray! 
Usually we eat lots of appetizers and play games on New Year’s Eve, so a veggie tray is a must.
I loved seeing the veggie trays turned jack-o-lantern and Christmas tree during the last couple of holidays. I thought it would be fun to shape our veggies into 2013 for our NYE festivities this year. 
Cute right?
We used carrots, broccoli, and red bell pepper, but you can easily choose your family’s favorite veggies for this. For the dip, I used plain Greek yogurt and a Ranch dip packet. The Greek yogurt is a great, healthy alternative to sour cream and you can barely tell the difference.
What do you all do for NYE?
Thanks for stopping by, friends!
Happy Friday!
