Happy New Year everyone!! Cannot believe how quickly the last year went (although to be fair, I do think that every year). Last night we hosted a sparkly NYE bash with lots of champagne and confetti, ringing in the New Year watching the Space Needle fireworks.
Guests were greeted with champagne, followed by a full bar to make classic champagne cocktails (recipe below!), mimosas, or change things up for some sparkling rose punch (recipe below!). For the photo booth, I made a handful of fun crowns, hung rose gold sequin fabric, added lots of confetti balloons, and set up our Instax Mini camera on a tripod. I always love seeing the small Polaroids the next day, plus I love that guests can take their photos home.
Classic Champagne Cocktail
place 1 sugar cube in your champagne glass
sprinkle 2-3 drops of Angostura bitters
garnish with a lemon peel
Moet Sparkling Rose Punch
Recipe by Moet, found on IG (@moetusa):
muddle 1 cup of cranberries with 2 tbsp sugar (I used powdered sugar)
add 1/2 cup gin and 3 rosemary sprigs, refrigerating for 30 minutes
add 1 cup of pomegranate juice and a bottle of sparkling rose
garnish glasses with fresh rosemary sprigs
I hope everyone had a wonderful NYE! Cheers to the next 2 months of mislabeling work documents as 2017 :)
