It is not always possible to have a fancy New Years party when you don't want to spend money, have kids, and have family far, far away.
So my solution for a simple, dressed up party was to use everything I had at home that would create a New Years party.
A couple of birthday hats from the past, with "2013" stickers.
I also took the labels out from the water bottles, tied silver string in the cap, and used a shiny sparkly sticker to it.
I also found a card that had little stars, so I used more number stickers to write 2013.
Then I dressed up a pie and a cake with paper signs using the same old stickers I had.
A celebration for a fresh start, and best wishes for all of us.
