around new year’s eve a few things come to mind – champagne, (more) glitter, fireworks…did we mention champagne? ringing in the new year is one of the most anticipated and romantic nights of the year – add some nuptials to all that excitement and you have got one heck of a party on your hands! gone are the days of tacky decorations, uncomfortable elastic party hats and choruses of noisy noise makers. here is a reason to ooh and aah over all the wonderful decor options surrounding this holiday!
the always fabulous green wedding shoes brought us this new year’s eve inspired shoot last year highlighting what would become some of our favorite 2012 trends! with a beautiful muted palette, pops of pink, gold ombre hues, and a little chevron print to boot, the metallic gold accents and luxurious feel give off all the decadence required of a new year’s eve soiree.
and of course we had to include a tasty drink recipe courtesy of marthastewart.com that will help you ring a ding ding in the new year with a little twist on the classic champagne toast!
in a small saucepan, boil ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until syrupy, about 2 minutes.
pour through sieve into bowl, discarding solids.
(to store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.)
pour 1 tablespoon syrup into each of 8 tall glasses.
top with sparkling wine, and gently stir.
