Last Minute New Year's Eve Ideas

As Adele would say, hello, it's me!  
I've been MIA like usual this year, but thank goodness that's all changing starting today.

As I round up some of my favorite presents from Christmas to share, crank out some new reviews / recipes, and finish setting my 2016 goals, I couldn't help but just bring a little New Year's Eve glam to the blog today.

If you're like me and was maybe a bit too busy to really focus on the fact that today is New Year's Eve, well keep reading because I have a few little quick glam tips and tricks for you to get yourself together for this evening- whether you're doing a big party, or just hanging out with some loved ones.

First, this sign.  Isn't it too cute?!  The best part is you can download this printable from Creating Really Awesome Free Things for FREE, yes, FREE, here!

If you're going to a party and need to make something to bring in a pinch, here are some super easy ideas that look as though you put all the thought in the world in it!  & let's be real, you are putting all the thought in the world into it, you're just a bit busy.

Veggies and hummus cups.  Colorful, tasty, EASY.

Lastly, if you're having people over and want to make sure there's always something to do while you await 12am (& even afterwards), I think this conversation starter game by Alice & Lois is super cute!  Pass the cards around, have people throw them into a bowl, and then read each others out loud and try to guess who it belongs to,

& for the millions of selfies that will no doubt be taken throughout the evening create a fun background using ribbon or streamers from the dollar store...

  & for $7 you can have instant printable New Year's Eve photo props courtesy of Studio120Underground!  I think $7 is beyond worth it for the hilarious pictures that would no doubt come out of the use of these props!
