Hi. I'm Brittany.

Party Like It's 2013

 

One holiday down and one more to go! New Year's Eve is such a sparkly, fun event (and my favorite to decorate for). Need some ideas?

 

 

This sequin circle backdrop would be fun to make - and would be the only decor you need! Attach metallic circles to foamcore for a big impact backdrop for pictures. And invite your friends to help you make it quickly! Jordan of Oh Happy Day said this took her and a friend just two hours to create. 

 

 

What about some big, fringy numbers? Chanel Dror of Camille Styles created these gorgeous numbers for Camille's birthday party, and I think they would make an awesome "2014." 

 

 

These headbands would make for some great pictures. Classics like "2014" "HAPPY NEW YEAR" and then something sassy ("PARTY ON") would be awesome... 

 

 

I made these for a friend's bachelorette party and they were a huge hit! So fun to make with friends - and wear with friends ;) You can decorate them all differently and even do different shapes and sizes if you're feeling adventurous. Bri's crown templates are a very helpful tool when making these!

 

 

By now, you all know I have a thing for snail mail... these glittery invites would be such a fun treat in your mailbox! Design*Sponge whipped these up for a New Year's bash last year, and even included some hunky confetti...
