After a fantastic hibachi dinner out with friends and a table load of littles, we came back to our place to ring in the new year.
A few yards of burlap, candles and mercury glass were the perfect back drop for a simple and so-Southern (four dollar!) arrangement of collard greens and a “bonne anne” banner. Champagne Cupcakes and Champagne Jello Shots were a sublime variation on the traditional new years bubbly, and terribly delish tres leches cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries rounded out the convivial fare.
Come midnight, we cued the Auld Lang Syne as we counted down, chinked our glasses, smooched our honeys and welcomed all of the great possibilities of the year ahead.
