I honestly can’t believe I’m already writing a post about New Year’s Eve. Where did 2018 go?! It’s been a crazy year, but one I’m very thankful for. To send it out with a bang, how about a little at-home NYE party tutorial? If you’re like me and prefer hosting your own shindig versus heading out to a crowded bar or restaurant, you’re definitely going to love this post. In my opinion, there’s nothing more fun than an intimate and food-filled evening at home, instead of spending the night with trendy strangers.

With Christmas just a week away, I have already turned my eyes to New Years. Specifically, I’m already thinking about which gorgeous barware in my collection I’d like to use to toast to 2019! We usually don’t do anything too big or over-the-top for New Years (remember our van excursion to the coast?), but I still like to have a small, special treat for us. Typically, I splurge on a nicer bottle of champagne and curate a really pretty cheeseboard. Sean and I are definitely in the camp that believes New Years Ever is overrated, but we still like to do a little something and not be totally lame about it. This year will find us hanging out in the mountains in a snowy cabin — perfect!

Truly, I cannot even wrap my mind around how we are less than 10 days away from Christmas. How did this happen?? I don’t know about you, but my holiday spirit is sort of lacking right now.

Here are some tips that might help you, too.

festive holiday pajamas for Christmas morning

Does your household wear matching holiday pajamas on Christmas morning? If there is one holiday tradition that I still love as an adult, this is it. As a kid, my and mom would splurge on pjs just for this occasion. Usually the pajamas were matching, but sometimes not… mostly they were just really cute pjs with a holiday spin to them! And, while this goes against everything my reduced waste, minimalist brain believes in… sometimes you just really want festive pjs, amiright??
