Sparkly New Year’s Eve Celebration Inspiration

new years eve inspiration

Since New Year’s Eve is the most festive night of the year, it definitely calls for sparkle, champagne, and confetti…lots and lots of confetti! And the creative team behind today’s styled shoot, photographed by Apryl Ann, wanted to take the concept of sparkle + glam and throw a styled NYE bash with a fun, modern vibe.  The color scheme of dramatic black + gold, with touches of feminine blush pink, is just the prettiest. When paired with art deco + geometric-inspired details, it’s perfect for anything from a glitzy wedding to a New Year’s party!

Birds of a Feather headed up the design and provided the stunning, richly-hued florals. The dramatic bouquet included tulips, ranunculus, and peonies, paired with an abundance of agonies foliage. So pretty, right?!

The unique table centerpiece was constructed out of gold blocks that varied in height and acted as a pedestal for the florals + candles. The gold geometric accent plates sat atop pink satin napkins and a glittering black sequin tablecloth.
