Once Christmas is over and you know what that means... the new year is around the corner. This year has flown by so quickly but I guess I say that every year.

The New Year is just around the corner – can you believe it? Every year I like to come up with a fun way to count down the new year before midnight. Somehow, it always winds up with a lot of confetti and vacuuming. Oh well, it’s not a New Year without confetti in my house.

I don’t know about you but I have always had a passion for dots. Polka dots, confetti dots, Dalmatian dots, you name it and I love it. To me, polka dots are timeless and so fun to use when creating a craft project or adding some fun to your décor. I rounded up 15 Delightful Polka Dot Projects to inspire you.

Every year I try to come up with a new way to package up confetti for New Year’s Eve. That way, everyone just gets a small handful and the confetti and glitter clean up is somewhat manageable. Besides, the package makes it all the more fun.

I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s very hard for me to throw away scraps of paper. I wouldn’t exactly classify it as hoarding but it could become a problem if I don’t use up the bits and pieces. This bowl wasn’t made out of paper scraps but paper catalogs. When I attended CHA in January, I came home with a lot of catalogs. The paper catalogs have pages and pages of pictures of pretty paper. How could I throw those away?

The black and white party ideas continue from yesterday. A New Year’s Eve party wouldn’t be complete without confetti.
At midnight, besides a glass of champagne or sparkling cider, every guest should have a packet of confetti to ring in the new year.
You can buy little glassine bags or make your own. I made these little packets out of wax paper. Just cut a piece of wax or parchment paper and use a glue stick to close up the edges. Fill with confetti and staple closed.
Check back tomorrow for more black and white party ideas as we count down to 2011.
