Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year!!! Wow! How is it already 2016? That just doesn’t seem possible!

We hope you had a wonderful Holiday weekend, doing whatever makes you happy — and of course recovering from the food coma that is the last couple weeks of December!

We sisters actually threw a New Years Eve party this year! We had so much fun putting it together and thought we’d share some pics with you guys.

We have to start with the photo props…because that’s what all parties must have these days 😉 I mean, why not, when they’re so much fun?! We actually took the lazy route this time and ordered these props and background. Find online, click order, open box 2 days later and wa-la. Instant party fun. Now that’s my kind of party prep!! Who’s with me??

We decided on a theme of black, white & gold…because what’s New Years Eve without a little sparkle?! Luckily for us Jac’s house has LOTS of those colors already…so we really didn’t do much decorating.

We had lots of fun coming up with black, white & gold food…and of course a few extras thrown in for good measure 😉

What’s more gold than goldfish?!

The best way to add gold to your food? Gold glitter sprinkles!!

I have a cookie set from Williams Sonoma that lets you create messages in your sugar cookies. Admittedly I don’t use it very often, but this seemed like the perfect occasion! Who doesn’t love a cookie that’s also spreading good cheer?

These might be my favorite ingenious pinterest find of the night. Mini tuxedos!! Seriously, how cute are these? Just a Ritz cracker, a triangle of our favorite white cheese and a little olive bow tie. Adorable! And so so simple!

While the tuxedos were my favorite “look” on the table…these pretzels…oh man, these pretzels…why is chocolate and pretzels such a delicious combo? Seriously, I don’t even like pretzels…but throw some chocolate on them and they are divine!! I could’ve eaten the whole platter myself! And probably did eat about half! Eek! :/

We had some golden pineapple to help cleanse everyone’s palate 😉

How do you make 7 layer dip fit your theme? Just keep whatever color you’re looking for on top! Olives it is! Resting on a bed of white cheese, of course.

White chocolate dipped Oreos, covered in gold glitter. It doesn’t get more festive than that!!

And then of course there’s the bubbly for that midnight toast! We just added blackberries to the champagne or sparkling cider to give it that little extra glam 😉

Jac’s Christmas tree even fit our theme?! Apparently this girl was made to host New Years Eve parties!! It’s official: same theme, same place, next year!

We had a few fun games planned for the evening and had them in separate boxes so every hour (9, 10, 11) we opened a new one and had a completely new activity to enjoy!

NYE games | all3sisters.com

At 9pm we started with a 2015 pop-culture trivia game. Our winner got 30/40 right! Not too shabby!! 

At 10pm we had a “never-ending” saran wrap gift. There was a scarf, hat & gloves in the box that had to be worn by the unwrapper. Everyone passed a die, trying to roll a 5 to get the chance to start unwrapping! If you’ve never played a game like this before you should try it. It’s hilarious just to watch, let alone participate! The saran wrap addition was a first for us, but we’ve done it many times with actual wrapped presents. The key is to get big obnoxious gloves so it’s extremely difficult to unwrap. Especially when you know someone else could roll a 5 at any time and take it away!! (You can also try to roll doubles…you know, if you can find 2 dice ;))

At 11pm the box included noisemakers and Happy New Year tiaras. Because that’s what ringing in the new year is all about!!

Of course we topped it all off by watching the ball drop!!

Welcome 2016. Here’s to new beginnings, new adventures and a new baby!!

We grew up in Wenatchee, Washington. Where there is a Mexican restaurant on every corner. You think I’m exaggerating. You’re welcome to go visit and see for yourself. Brightly painted stucco abounds.
