New Year’s Party

New Year’s Eve is one of those holidays that’s really easy to hype up and then be massively disappointed by. My dream evening is a party at my own house, with friends who feel free to dress in cocktail attire or pajamas. Lots of appetizers – because by that point in the holidays we’re all bloated and tired of sweets – and plenty of cocktails. Throw in some party props and I’d be one happy girl ringing in 2013!
