How exciting to host a New Year’s engagement dinner! It’s a chance to capture that merrymaking magic while keeping the occasion elegant, too. The perfect option—a champagne theme! Simply focus on elements that are all about bubbliness, sparkle and cheer. So to help pop the cork and get the ideas flowing, here’s some inspiration for one lovely and lively celebration!
Ring In The New Year in Style and Glamor
1 – Ring in your party theme with stylish invites, like this one designed by Lauren of Palm Papers. We love the clean, contemporary look, and how the gold ink and colorful dots convey the “champagne and confetti” motif perfectly!
2 – The ideal favor for this theme would, of course, be mini bottles of bubbly! Or as Tiffany of Pretty Brass Tacks shares, they also make striking escort “cards” and table numbers. Her post includes valuable tips on sourcing these specialty items from reputable wineries and in party quantities. So, if you’re interested, do check it out.
3 – Add drama to your engagement toast with a champagne waterfall! All eyes will definitely be on this tower of glasses with the bubbly pouring down from one tier to the next. Cheers! [Image via Pinterest. We’d love to properly acknowledge the original source, so please let us know.]
4 – Isn’t the unique spiral design of this tiered cake amazing? Created by the “Evil Cake Genius” behind Gateaux’s Cake Log, it looked to us like champagne bubbles dancing their way up and fizzing in the air! Just the type of cake for this theme.
5 – Of course, you must dress for the occasion! The look to aim for? The same glitz and glam as this Champagne Dame gold sequin dress from LuLu’s.com. A simple, clean cut with just a hint of ruffling at the hipline. We love it!
6 – Reflect all that sparkle on your New Year’s tables in mercury glass candleholders. These lovely pieces from West Elm are made of handblown glass and each fit a little votive candle. If you give these as favors, too, your guests will love you!
7 – For fun New Year favors (that are also a cinch to DIY), you can’t go wrong with mini countdown confetti boxes. These ones, found on Carolyn’s Homework blog, are simply matchboxes wrapped in colored foil paper, filled with available punched paper, and trimmed with twine and a countdown number. Guests get to toss the confetti from each numbered box as you all count 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. Happy New Year!!!
