Wohooo, belated happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2012, may all your dreams come true and may you have 12 inspiring and creative months! :) As I've already written, I spent my holidays with Flo and with our very best friends (<3 !!!), they all came the week after Christmas and stayed for severeal nights. Because we all live in different parts of Germany, we all do not see each other too often, but when we meet, this time is really special and we have already spent a lot of weekends like this together. <3
Although we have an apartment with only two rooms, we somehow managed to accommodate 6 overnight guests and we also had three other visitors (my beloved friends Hanna and Anja with her boyfriend) who came during daytime and for our New Year's Eve party. I love my friends so much, we had the most incredible time, we were cooking together, exchanged Christmas presents, talked a lot, listened to music, danced and we actually had two parties, one spontanious one the night before New Year's Eve, and New Year's Eve itself. :)
On December 31, we all dressed up, prepared LOTS of delicious, vegetarian food (salads, snacks and food for our awesome raclette that we use each year as a tradition), made two sorts of punch and decorated our living room. We put two tables together, used my vintage plates I bought at the flea market, Jenny and Malin cut out tons of golden circles for the table's decor and we hung up golden Christmas tree balls.
During the party, we were eleven people, ate a lot, listened to classical music during dinner, took many photos in our fancy outfits and later in the evening, we listened to trash music from the 90s and made Spice Girls inspired photos (can be seen below...). :)
On New Year's Day, we ate the leftovers, cleaned the apartment and had to say goodbye. :( Fortunalety, not all of our friends live too far away, but Flo and I were both incredibly sad on Sunday evening after they had left, because these days we spent together were so special! <3
So here a few photos of the party and of our pretty outfits. :)
Ho did you spend New Year's Eve?
