Ringing in 2017


Since my parents had to cancel their trip to visit us for Christmas and New Years (details here), we decided to throw a last minute party at our house for NYE. Mostly everyone we knew already had plans or were out of town but luckily some of our neighbors were in for the celebration and we did a little house hopping to another neighbor's house to set off fireworks at midnight.




It was a very Christmas-themed NYE party because we bought so much food and drinks to celebrate with my parents but instead went out of town on Christmas Day to spend it with K's family.





Nothing goes to waste around here so we cooked turkey and some sides for dinner but we did have the NYE essentials ~ champagne and fireworks to ring in the new year.








We ate and had some eggnog and drinks and then headed over to our neighbor's house to pop the champagne and light off fireworks at midnight.



With my sister in town and lots on our agenda for the whole week, this was the perfect way to ring in 2017 with new friends in the neighborhood.

  4. looks like it was a fun night! I always go to a huge family party on New Years eve, but I think I would much rather enjoy a little gathering like you did here. It's much more intimate! Hope your New Years was wonderful. Many well wishes for the year to come <3

  12. So cute! I mean, if you've got eggnog, you've got a good time...

    My fiance and I hosted a NYE party, and we totally forgot to get sparklers!! They were all sold out by the time we remember. But I had plenty of champagne to pop and party hats, so at least we were half way there ;) Actually, I think we had the exact same tiaras and party hats as you have on in these pictures! #thankyoupartycity
