How to Throw an Effortlessly Stylish New Year’s Eve Party

Happy New Year, everyone!

How did you spend it? Where did you celebrate the countdown? One of my favorite couples in the world, Steve and Hannah Steinhardt hosted a simply tasteful New Years Eve dinner at their beautiful home.

Yes, you read correctly – I said simple. Hannah is a truly gifted individual and can always make the simplest things look absolutely extraordinary. Which is probably why we’re great friends. A natural hostess with mostess, Hannah has amazing taste in pretty much everything, and is definitely an inspiration of mine.

While walking her cute Pomeranian dogs, Monty and Preston, she discovered beautiful bougainvillea flowers and used them to arrange stunning centerpieces. These vibrant flowers together with bright citrus oranges lent a warm and festive Mediterranean vibe to the table setting. Hannah also used white taper candles and vintage tableware, which added texture and interest against the natural blush toned, silk runner. The combination looked effortless, elegant and romantic.

This stunning table setting was also the perfect place to place a champagne tower ⎯my all time favorite way to display and serve champagne. It’s not a party without champagne and this past holiday I’ve discovered my favorite brands of bubbly that I’d like to share with you. Below is a list of champagne bottles that I think you’ll love too:

Vilmart & Cie Champagne Cuvee Rubis

Ca’ del Bosco Franciacorta Brut Cuvee Prestige

97 Laurent-Perrier NV Grand Siècle Grande Cuvée Brut

Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut

Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut NV Champagne

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV

I didn’t want to bore and write an entire essay explaining why I chose each of them, but they all have one thing in common: they’re light and sweet, which is just how I like my champagne. And, the gorgeous boxes they come in are a definite plus. I love anything that is packaged beautifully.

All in all, it was a beautiful evening to enjoy some champagne, spread the cheer, and kick off the New Year in style. With just a few winning touches, this lovely get-together proves that it doesn’t take much to throw a wonderful party for New Year’s Eve or any other celebration. Inspiration is everywhere and it just takes a little imagination to discover it.

Thanks for reading, friends! 
Hope you have a wonderful New Year and may 2018 bring you everything you wish for!
