Happy New Year

I am so excited to start the new year...resolutions, plans, goals, dreams....a time for new beginnings!   H & I will have a quiet New Years eve as we usually, friends, great food, and a few drinks to celebrate the New Year.

 We don't have a liquor cabinet...I just store the bottles under the kitchen island.   But, this year I had a brain storm ("oh NO" you

I decided to turn this display cabinet in the family room into a "Liquor Cabinet" for New Years Eve!
I have a small collection of vintage bottles that I have displayed with the existing dishes in the cabinet....

I brought out the "good stuff" for New Years....

I will make a bowl of non alcoholic punch for the younger ones....

Some brandy and different liquor for mixed drinks....

We will have lots of fun as we wait for midnight with family and friends.....
Our daughter, Melissa,  and her family will ring in the New Year with us.   She also has another daughter Sarah (23), that had left for work before we took this photo.  I'll make sure she gets in the next one!

I hope you have special plans to ring in the New Year.....
Have a safe and blessed New Year!
