New Year’s Eve Photo Props

NYE1

Photo props are all the rage now and can add a lot of fun to party photos. I have created free printables and easy instructions below.

SUPPLY LIST:

  • New Year’s Eve Printables (available here)
  • White Card-stock paper
  • Glue
  • Glitter (I used black, gold and red)
  • Craft sticks (available at your local craft store)

supplies

1. Download and print the printables either on your home computer or at your local printer. I purposely didn’t use a lot of black to save on ink.

2. Glue one item and one color only and then add glitter. This is to insure you don’t mix glitter colors

That was easy! Have a blessed New Year!

Holiday Table Ideas

blog page holiday

cracker

A festive holiday table is so warm and inviting.  Here, I will add personalization (no surprise) to each place setting to make the table even more welcoming!

A. I used jute twine to  wrap my cloth napkins with a bit of real greenery and a candy cane.

B. Instead of place settings, I created a personalized candle holder for each guest. I picked up these inexpensive candle holders from my local Target store. I hot glued a glitter initial that I purchased at Michael’s store.

C.  Chargers add such a nice touch. If your budget is tight, why not use these faux bronze chargers (also available in silver or gold)  from Michael’s stores? They are great looking and very inexpensive! These neutral place mats are from Target and are waterproof, making them so easy to clean.

D. I added some snowflake ornaments (Target), mercury glass votive holders (Michael’s) and a couple of glitter trees to finish off the center of my table.

E. And my favorite part of the holiday table…the Christmas cracker! I thought about making these myself…well, maybe next year. These are a set of 10 from Target. Hurry, these sell out quickly! I have spent more than one Christmas Eve on a mad search for the crackers that I forgot to buy.  They POP! when you pull them and include small treats inside (a paper crown, a riddle or joke, and a small toy). Our tradition is that everyone wears their crown during the meal (or at least part of it) and each person takes a turn telling their joke.

I hope this inspires you to create your own festive table this holiday season. It’s all about the love we share and memories we make, after all!
