New Year's Eve Party, Bridal Shower, Wine Tasting | by Alissa Noelle Photography |  www.smittenmagazine.com

Any time someone puts together a party around a popular holiday and finds a new spin on it, I’m instantly intrigued.  This new idea for New Year’s Eve is bright, feminine, and oh-so-bubbly.  Super team Alissa Noelle Photography and A Fabulous Fete paired up with Beautiful Savage Flowers to create a stunning bridal shower.  It’s elegant, chic and a wonderful way to ring in 2016.  Here, Alissa gives you all the secrets to a perfect pairing:

With tastings, you want a good variety of dry, extra dry, rose and more. For sparkling wine, we decided to use: Champagne Brut, Extra Dry, Rose and my personal favorite, Prosecco (Italian sparkling wine). If you want to add more tastings, Cava (Spanish sparkling wine) is a great one to start with as well. Then we paired them with cheese (Manchego + sharp cheddar cheese), grapes and bread. Party favors are cute little boxes with candies for each guest (dark chocolate usually goes great after sparkling wine). The table setting was boho inspired. With the use of Anthropologie dishes, Crate + Barrel Flutes and a black crochet blanket instead of a traditional table cloth. Keeping the florals in the color tone of fall is what helps balance the summer boho decor and fall look. Little card stock papers were used as name tags for each sparkling wine and for notes on a side table for guest to write what their New Year resolution will be. Simple solid colored hand towels were used to wrap around the bottles as you pour them for your guest so that the condensation doesn’t water it down. And touches of glitter in a bottle to represent the new year. Voilà! You’ve just created a chic way to ring in the new year and celebrate your engagement!
