Daily Candy dropped into my inbox this morning these beautifully illustrated hat templates designed by NYC illustrator Nicole Killian. Now you really have no excuse to not don one on your noggin this evening.
Oh Martha! Aren’t you clever!?! Ring in the New Year with a few easy to make decorations and party favors. Hats are a must-have for any great New Year’s party. Make hats ahead of time or lay out sheets of paper (patterned, construction, wrapping, etc) markers and tape and let your guests go to town. Grab all the clocks you have to make a fun mantel or table centerpiece. Counting glasses can be constructed using simple champagne flutes and buying adhesive numbers at any office or stationery store. Make a table runner or fill a tray with leftover metallic wrapping paper. Purchase a 2010 rubber stamp or tape together the numbers if you already have stamps and let your imagination run wild! Stamp balloons, napkins, coasters, placemats, runners, toilet paper (make sure ink doesn’t come off when wet!) I think you get the idea. Lastly, keep the celebration going on New Year’s Day surprise guests or family with 2010 pancakes. All you need is confectionary sugar and cookie cutter numbers or homemade stencils. Let the countdown begin!

Will I ever get used to saying twenty ten (2010) in place of 0-10! I can’t believe 2009 is over this week, I keep looking at my desktop calendar and January just isn’t there which sent me to Etsy.com in search of a 2010 calendar. I shop Etsy because many designers sell printable PDFs that I can easily make myself or if you rather beautifully constructed calendars for purchase. Last year my roommate and I hosted a New Year’s Eve dinner and I purchased a calendar PDF from the Little Brown Pen on Etsy and made calendar favors for all of our guests. For under $8 I was able to give a gift that lasted all year long and was cute to boot, amazing!
