It’s a new year! Time for new beginnings and a fresh start for all. Here’s to us, my friends! May 2014 bring health, happiness, and prosperity to all. Here’s hoping this upcoming year is our best year ever!
I am not one for making resolutions or following any particular new year traditions. Mom, however, made sure to scare away all evil spirits at midnight and greeted the proper First Footer this morning, ensuring good luck for the upcoming year. Little confession from me, though…although I was semi-conscious at the stroke of midnight, I greeted the arrival of the new year from the safe, cozy, snug confines of my bed. Not much of a party going on here. 🙂
I do, however, have a fun and festive party idea to share with you today that I made for the Authentique blog. These cute party cones make a great party favor for any occasion. I could so see these done up in silver and gold and filled with streamers, poppers, and noisemakers for New Year’s. Or perhaps made in pink or blue for a baby shower, or colors matching a wedding party…
The cones are the perfect size for holding lots of treats and sweets or homemade baked goods. I tucked mine upright into a glass to place at each place setting, but they would also look cute laying on a plate, tied up with a napkin, and they make a great take-away gift for your party guests. Love a versatile project, like that.
I’ve got more details and step-by-step directions up on the Authentique blog, if you’d like to see more.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! I am ever grateful for your visits and friendship! Happy New Year!
