It's The Final Countdown - NYE 2010

I know, Christmas is in 5 days, that just means New Year's Eve is in 12! If you are getting ready for the New Year with a blow-out, here's a little inspiration to help you on your way!

New Year's Eve party ideasI am in love with this wedding spread featured at Elizabeth Anne Design. From the countdown wall as a photo booth to the elegant tabletops! And those holiday s'mores? Yes, please! Score your own clock plates from Pottery Barn.

The lovely Love The Day has created free printables to help spread the word for Operation Shower! Big circles, small circles, tags, labels, tent cards, thank you tags, candy bar wrappers, you name it, it's there!
This holiday glam party from Celebrations At Home can translate for any party that needs a little fabulousity...sorry Ms. Kimora...but I think it is perfect for bringing in the New Year!

And if the table is a little too much for you, don't worry, she has a dessert table scaled down for smaller gatherings!
It was a showdown of the ages...the East Coast's Black And White NYE party vs. the West Coast's Our Gang's NYE party are both chockful of amazing ideas.

This black and white table from Pizzazzerie doesn't scream NYE right off the bat, but if you just take out the cute snowman, I bet it will!
****UPDATE****
Speaking of Pizzazzerie, I just had to add her latest fabness, fresh off the Hostess Blog, a sparkly "Midnight" dinner party. I love a party that has lots of recreatable elements and this one is no exception, from the poppers to the glitter letters. You know you've seen those letters, get you some!

****UPDATE****
I know, I said I wasn't adding more to this post I just had to sneak in this table from One Sweet Party! No need to commission your favorite baker, simple store-bought treats become elegant with a little pretty tag or two.
No need to run out and purchase new items; repurpose Christmas items like this table from Delish. Christmas ornaments, silver wrapping paper and tin cans from Christmas cooking will work perfectly!
The purple and red of Crate & Barrel's sweet holiday spread is perfect for a NYE bash, it just needs a little more glitz. Change out the ornaments for mirror and glitter balls, sprinkle purple acrylic diamonds everywhere and you're set.

The latest issue of Kiwi Magazine had a great idea for an edible countdown calendar! Fill small bowls with a special treat representing each month of the year...January - marshmallows, February - chocolate, March - green peas, April - carrots, etc.

Check out last year's post, Thanks For Your Time, that includes my all-time favorite NYE party favor, which coincidentally is my own!
