The New Year’s Eve Party Snowball…

Posted in Main at 4:22 pm by carrie

I wasn’t planning on having a party until I saw some little chocolate toasting cups at the grocery store. From there, it was all downhill.

You have to have champagne… and champagne glasses…

And food served on vintage snack trays… complete with tiny ash tray/cubby and tiny punch cup

And cupcakes, you’ve got to have cupcakes…

And vegan cupcakes…

And I’ll need a cupcake condo for those cupcakes, so they don’t dry out…

And chips… a three-tiered party tray with a large selection of chips…

And homemade hummus & salsa…

And a pitcher of margaritas…

And spa water…

And salad and Trader Joe’s goodies…

We rearranged some furniture, added a chandelier…

Put up a few new pictures…

Purchased a Playstation 3 and a few games, including Guitar Hero World Tour…

And got a rather large flatscreen TV.


It all started with some chocolate toasting cups… $6.99 at the Harris Teeter.

It was all worth it… we had a great time!!!

Happy 2009!!!! :)
