Free New Years Printables - Silver and Gold

Even though New Years Eve will just be a quiet night at home with my family, I want to make it special! I loved the Black and Aqua New Years dinner table I did last year, but as soon as I saw this subway art at eighteen 25, I knew I wanted to go with a classic Silver and Gold New Years theme this year. (I am a huge fan of eighteen 25 and all of their subway art - you will want to check them out!)

So I headed off to Zurchers, my closest party store to find some matching decorations. I found some great inexpensive noise makers, 2012 signs and metallic stars in different shapes. My favorite find were these plates.

Block Party 10.25" Plates | 8ct

The problem is that I couldn't find any free coordinating party circles. So I decided to create my own and offer them to YOU-my way of saying THANKS! **I have updated the New Years Party Circles for 2013!

I thought you might like to see how I will be using these for my New Years party.

A little preview of my New Years Table. Check out the adorable 2012 mask in front of the drink, love them!

I don't drink but I wanted to show how you could use a plain straw and a party circle to make a stir stick. Just cut off the "bendy" part of the straw and attach the party circle at the top. I like it, maybe I'll just have to stir my diet Sprite on New Years!

As you can see I backed the party circles with a slightly larger black circle to give it a little more depth. It makes a great goodie bag tag. (Think of all of the yummy candy that is wrapped silver or gold-Werthers, Rolo's, Kisses, Ferrero Rocer, etc)

I gathered the napkin and a metallic noise maker together and tied them with ribbon and added another circle. Love the clock striking midnight!

Thanks again to eighteen 25 for sharing their beautiful subway art and for giving me such a great piece to use as inspiration!

A close up of the centerpiece. Basic white tablecloth, black table runner (with gold accents on the ends), inexpensive star spray left over from another party with a 2012 sign and a little ribbon to spruce it up, 2 gold hurricane candle holders (clearance Walmart a few years ago) and edible confetti. Yes, edible confetti-I was too cheap to buy the cute metallic 2012 confetti at the party store so I used some shimmer silver Cupcake Gems from Cake Mate. These may show up again on a dessert for New Years too!

Hope this little preview and free printables give you some inspiration for your own New Years bash!!!!
