H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !
My new years eve duty was to plan and prepare most of the evening.. which got me thinking in advance. I had to decorate and put the table together. The colour scheme that i chose was copper, gold and navy. I bought hessian runners and napkins with a pretty pattern (i love napkins!) and decorated some old bottles. I stuck glitter and spray painted the bottles - thanks for the spray paint dad ;) I wanted a simple table and I was happy with the outcome.
Emil and Erich dived out some fresh Oysters and served them on ice with lemon, salt and pepper with Tabasco. They were so fresh and tasty - Thanks, guys!
My sister sat for a while on the balcony making a watermelon punch for everyone, while I set the table. For our starter, we had nachos served in a little, wooden boat.
I made a sparkling rose drink with blueberries as a "starter drink". For mains we had pizza, which was made in our portable Webber Pizza oven - click here to see my post on that gadget!
It was my first NYE spent with Emil - so it was extra special! I enjoyed reflecting back on the memories made in 2016. It was a lovely evening spent with my family and it was definitely a night I will always remember!
Have a blessed year ahead and make the most of every day!
