Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2018 already?! This year, like the last few, we celebrated at home with friends & family. Now that we have little man it’s so much easier to have people over than to worry about hiring a babysitter & going out. Plus, I love to host so it’s a win-win!
In the years past we’ve hosed a fondue party, but since little and his friends were joining in on the fun I thought a big spread of homemade apps & finger foods would be best. While the adults enjoyed chocolate martinis & mixed drinks, the kiddos sipped on Shirley Temples with bendy straws & cherry garnishes. I set up a photo backdrop in the basement with props and we even did an early ball drop at 9 PM for the kids.
For my outfit, I decided to wear a lace romper that I had picked up at Target for only $27.99 and statement earrings from Walmart for $3. Side note, I’ve never been one to shop jewelry at Walmart but I couldn’t pass up $3 earrings that were super cute! The cut-out back & lightweight sleeves on the romper made hosting a breeze. I was cool & comfortable while cooking in the kitchen, refilling drinks & chasing the kids around.
As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx
