Whew! We made it through all of the craziness of Christmas yesterday! I don’t know about you, but I am always so exhausted by Noon and the day is just beginning. We had our family Christmas in the morning, the girls (mostly Aria) loved opening presents. Except for the moment Aria finished opening presents from Mommy + Daddy and about had a meltdown because we only gave new clothes. Yes, she freaked out and said she didn’t want any gifts from Mommy and Daddy, only gifts from Santa. I asked her why and she said because he brings toys. Oh well, you win some and loose some!
Aria quickly forgot about all of that once she opened all the games and toys! Soo much so that she and my nephew got caught hiding and eating the Candy Cane filled with mini Kit Kats I got for James! Yep, ate the entire thing! Kids, it’s so funny the things they do during the holiday excitement and influences of their cousins.
After that we went to my moms for our Christmas with her. Then the rest of my family came over for dinner, gift exchange and a white elephant game. If you remember this post on entertaining tips, then you remember my Mom is famous for having a game. This one was so fun and the gifts were hilarious!
It was such a great day celebrating Christmas and My Birthday with my family. Excited to do it all again next week at my in-laws when my brother and sister in-law get in to town!
Ok so now about the New Year’s Eve outfit. This is the perfect look for a home New Year’s Eve party. Which is what we do every year. I have a few tips for getting into the NYE spirit, but still allowing yourself to be comfortable.

New Year’s Eve At Home Party Outfit Tips
- Find a sparkley/sequin top. This gives you the glam of shimmer and shine, but still allowing you to wear pants (jeans or even leggings) which is always a comfy option.
- Bring two outfits. Yes, maybe a little weird, but depending on who you’re celebrating with and the type of party this is a great option. One year I wore a really pretty sequin dress for the happy hour and dinner part of the party and then switched to a black tee and pants with sequin blazer.
- Wear a sequin or embellished blazer, cardigan or jacket. This is great because you can wear it for as long as you want. It one of those items that can be worn or not throughout the evening dependings on how you’re feeling.
- Wear something solid and glam it with jewels. This is the easiest of them all. Wear a monochromatic look, like all black, then find oversized costume jewelry to really give you that shimmer, shine and glamour you’re looking for fot NYE.
Thank you for stopping by! I’d love to hear you’re tips and tricks for knowing what to wear at an in-home New Year’s party!
