Happy New Year!!!

First day back and it’s New Years Eve. I hope you’ve had a very nice Christmas. Spain was lovely and I’ll show you some photos another day. 
Here’s our living room ready for tonight’s celebrations. 

I’ve included a couple of tips as it’s Tuesday Tips day. First of all I’ve used Kinetic Dazzle Stripe wallpaper as a table runner. The numbers I’ve cut out from old calendars. The large ones from the Stendig Calendar and the smaller ones from the RK Design calendar. So hold on to your old calendars and use them for Birthdays and other parties. The smaller numbers would also look good as cup cake toppers if you put them on a little stick. 
I wrapped some gold tinsel round some BBQ skewers and dropped them into the straws just to add a bit of a sparkly detail. The chocolates were bought to match in black and gold. The Christmas decorations are from B&Q. If you feel like making some concrete candle holders you can learn how to make them here. The pretty white stars are from Jotte shop
I’ve really enjoyed blogging the last two years and would be lost without my blog and my readers. Thank you so much for everything and see you in the New Year! I hope 2014 will be a Happy Year for all of us! 
Much love,
