Optimistic and positive, gold adds richness and warmth. It illuminates and enhances everything around. Color associated with wisdom, elegance. It will inspire the soul, brings knowledge. 

Combined with grey tones, gold will show its more fragile side, and softness. Nude tones and old pink for a feminine approach.

Gold will appear fresh and young in combination with pale pink: love, fragile, inspired by pink Champagne. Adding some sparkle with edible glitter and you have the perfect color harmony for the candy bar. Gold flakes was used by the nobility during Medieval period as a decoration in food and drinks, to demonstrate the host's wealth. Golden paper cups will turn your simplest finger food in something awesome. Welcome the new year with feathers and butterflies. Balloons are a fun and inexpensive way to add a party note, a touch of gold will bring you fun in preparing for the event.

Prepare the bar cart, a tray with reflection will add some sparkle. It are those small details which will make your event dazzle with charm. Is also the occasion to give it an eclectic touch, you celebrate this moment just once a year, so why not adding a bit of glamour. Take out all your chairs, don't worry if they don't match. Even a side table can be used as a place to sit. And in case still not enough chairs: get some cheap stools, paint them white and add a touch of gold, your guest will feel loved as they are getting all this special attention. You won't disappoint.

Plan, it is much needed, to enjoy the moment yourself too. Even when it is last moment: make shopping list, look if you have enough glasses and think of the decoration. Start decorating in the morning, put the bottles in the fridge or just outside unless you live in Australia. Gold, pink, stars, garland, and some glitter will bring a setting with a modern vibe, the perfect Instagram background for the holiday parties. And make sure you have enough Champagne to go around.

Gold is the color of the winner. Get out your draped dress. Put on those golden ballerinas, you will be dancing all night long with a radiant face. Take out your jewelry, make it bold. Combine modern minimalist with classical baroque for an overwhelming effect. Metal look and velvet are a perfect combination.
