Did you miss my Olympic Party Ideas last summer?

Recap: What a Year!

I can’t believe it’s already New Years Eve!  This year has been such an incredible year for me (and will be VERY hard to top!)  however, I can already tell 2013 is also going to be amazing.  I have so many BIG resolutions and goals and I am so ready to start a new year.  I’ve been very blessed over the past year and I have something awesome I made which I’ll share soon…but here’s a little recap of the past few weeks and lots of sparkle to kick off this New Years Eve.

Happy (almost) 2013!

My new rings (a New Year's gift to myself), a bottle of Dom from my parent's wedding anniversary in 1976), Mini Champagne bottles from my girls Christmas party, Balloons at OYA and Pomegranate Martinis I made.  Cheers!

Friday Fiesta: Pop Fizz Clink

On Wednesday, I had a group of girlfriends over to have Cocktails, Champagne and to celebrate the Holidays before everyone starts their travels.  My sister was in town (thank God because she was such a big help) which made it extra fun.

I’m so lucky to have such wonderful girlfriends in my life- they truly are incredible.  Here’s a look at some of the party!  Happy Holidays!

Here's the Invite that I made and sent out (I have a hobby in making easy PDF files)
