new years eve {over the top to last minute}

For those of you that are not burnt out from hosting holiday parties and are brave enough to host New Years Eve--this post is just for you! These are some of my favorite palettes and looks for one of the most festive nights of the year. I am especially fond of the playful ethnic mood set by tones of chartreuse and a Moroccan flair. It is such a nice departure from the traditional shimmer and shine of the season.

And for those of you that really want to go all out---I love the idea of draping the ceiling with flowing ribbons, the glow of candles and injecting some Great Gastby glamour.

Or if you prefer a more modern feel why not play with a bold peacock inspired palette?

And if you are pulling the evening together at the last minute--don't fret! There is no reason that you cannot pull the paper whites (or other seasonal potted plants) from around the house to the table alongside some simple votives.
