How will you ring in the New Year? We’re starting 2014 off right: with friends and food!

Describer the Vibe:

The New Year’s Day Brunch we’re dreaming of is subtly sparkly, with mostly white and silver, and some gold. It’s intimate and welcoming, with our closest friends conversing around a beautifully decorated dining table.

Decor:

This white and silver table setting is perfect: simple, modern, and crisp.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? We don’t know. But we like this sparkly silver banner.

Time keeps on tickin’ into the future. Clocks (like the little silver one above and the gold one below) and simple white candles look gorgeous on a food buffet, coffee bar, mimosa bar, or on the dining table.

What’s brunch without mimosas? We love the idea of a mimosa bar with different types of juices to choose from – orange, mango, and grapefruit (our favorite).

Sparkly stir sticks are a must.

Menu:

Guests likely stayed up late the night before. Let’s make sure they’re good and caffeinated with this cute cup of joe.

These glittery goodies are almost too pretty to eat, but that’s not stopping us.

We’re pretty sure grilled cheese is the ultimate hangover food. Soak up the champagne from the night before with this Brie and Blueberry Waffle Grilled Cheese. Serve with seasonal spiced fruit and mini breakfast casseroles.

Attire:

Just say “yes” to casual sequins.

Happy (almost) New Year from Everybody’s Invited!
