We got to ring in 2013 with our nearest & dearest on Monday evening! Marty and I got inspired by Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus! I made my bold tent-like stripes by just placing 7 strips of black satin ribbon on my white tablecloth.
I made my black & white striped trees by starting with streamers. Pulling a needle and thread through the top edges created the gathered ruffle which I pinned onto styrofoam cones. Turned red ornaments upside down & pushed them into the tops with a bit of wired star trim to finish!
I baked the white snowflake sugar cookie cakes on the left (served with licorice fudge) and made plates of brownie bites and meringues sprinkled with mini snowcaps! Bruno Bakery made us the dangerous Black & White Mousse Cake..
