Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year, my friends!!

My New Year's Eve consisted of learning how to snow ski (I felt very close to mortality that day--I've left the mountain with a new perspective on life!), dinner for twenty-two family members followed by silly board games and home videos, desperately trying to stay awake until midnight (success thanks to PSY's Opa Gagnam Style), a champagne toast, fireworks, then desperately trying to stay awake until California midnight so I could wish my littlest sister a Happy New Year.

It was perfect.
Now, onto the champagne toast. I was inspired by this party from Hostess with the Mostess.
I placed rock candy into flat champagne glasses then poured the champagne over the candy. This worked well with our sparkling cider drinkers, too!
The candy dipped in champagne was so yummy, and the last bit of drink had crystals left in the bottom for an extra sweet finish!
What did you do for New Year's Eve?
