Ever since our twin boys were born 6 1/2 years ago, we have enjoyed New Years in the comfort of our own home. We typically invite some of our closest friends and family and ring in the New Year with lots of celebration. As the founder and event stylist for Charming Touch Parties, I enjoy any excuse for a party. New Years Eve is the official end to the holiday season and for our family is a perfect excuse to celebrate the promise and hope for the coming year. The starting point for this party was the festive color combination, silver and gold. New Years isn't complete without a little sparkle and glitz. Our little family-friendly bash was one for the books! 2013 was welcomed with fanfare, champagne and a little celebratory ice cream sundae bar. The kiddos enjoyed banging pots and pans and all did an impromtu running lap around the house. It was a fabulous kick-off to what we hope is a great year to come.
