The time has come, everyone! We survived the end of the world, so yes, it’s time to celebrate big and ring in 2013. This past year we enjoyed the 2012 Olympics and once more were overcome with awe and fascination by all of the superb athletes across the world, we experienced one of the most controversial presidential elections in years, we lost one of the biggest pop icons, we made great strides in the scientific fields and so much more. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the good and the bad, since it’s what’s molded who we are at this very second. What are you grateful for at the end of 2012? And what are you looking forward to in 2013?
New Years is the perfect time to start fresh or really make an effort to start the change you’ve been planning all these months. The main challenge is to stay on track. Helpful tip? Make a vision or motivation board and hang it next to your dresser mirror so it’s constantly nagging you. I know you’ve probably heard that before, but trust me: it works. Last year, I resolved to make changes for a healthier lifestyle and I’ve been mostly successful at following through. I’m human, so I’ve stumbled here and there, but I always brushed it off and went right back to it. So can you!
How are you planning to welcome the new year this time? I usually like to go all out at a big, loud party with a sparkly dress. I feel that sets the tone for your year in a way. It doesn’t matter if you’re celebrating at home with loved ones or at a huge party venue with a couple loved ones and tons of strangers, welcome the new year with positivity and hope for all the unknown experiences up ahead.
Get creative at your party and roll up some caterwraps for your guests. Grab some Metallic Plastic Cutlery and roll it inside of these Champagne Swirl Luncheon Napkins. If you want to get fancy, display them inside a clear glass bowl or vase with metallic plastic beads! I love how this looks!
Start chilling that champagne now while you list either 10 reasons you loved 2012 or 10 reasons why you’re excited about 2013. When it comes time for the countdown, try to remember one each time you count down to the new year. It’ll feel like a nondenominational prayer and a great way to get positive about the new year.
Happy New Year, My Paper Shoppers!! May you have a joyful and blessed 2013.
