Celebrating the New Year


Wow!  2017.  Hello!



Several of our family friends hosted our annual Old Fashioned New Year's Eve Family Celebration...we included a Sparkling Cider Toast and Balloon Drop at the stroke of twelve...(EST).

Fun Favors of chocolates and holy cards
Of course, we begin by giving thanks for all the blessings we received throughout the year...what a beautiful Mass!



The tables and ceiling were decorated with a lot of silvery-gold twinkly-bling.
We had about 100 guests...including the five families that helped plan and organize, decorate and serve...



I love this backdrop...Merry Christmas!


The noodles and rice and side dishes were SO DELICIOUS...not to mention the hand-made desserts...
There were so many wonderful desserts hand-made by one of the teens...THANK YOU, "L"

And the celebration wouldn't be the same without the traditional roasted pig...


Everything was amazing and delicious and much fun was had by all...

What a great family and friend memory and an exciting way to ring in the New Year!
