New Year’s Eve Cocktails and Party Dresses

New Years Cocktails
This year I’m ringing in 2019 from the family room with just the hubs. I’m assuming the munchkins are currently asleep…they better be anyway! Bwah! It’s been a looooong year and Mama needs to chill in some comfy jammies with her feet up. That doesn’t mean a few New Year’s Eve cocktails won’t be happening though.

I have big plans in that regard. Huge, ha! We’re enjoying a late night bountiful spread of sushi (yum!) and a tasty dessert along with our cocktails. Just little details like these always make a night feel special and New Year’s Eve certainly deserves a whole lot of special…especially this particular New Year’s Eve! 

2019 has given our family some of our greatest successes and some of the hardest moments of our lives. Unfortunately, there were more bumps in the road than not, so I’m ready to put it to bed and give a toast and nod to the year ahead. Bring on 2020. I’m so very ready! Are you? I bet you are! And that’s why I’m sharing three drinks we’ve previously featured that I’m considering perfectly fit to be New Year’s Eve cocktails!

1. Peppermint Grapefruit Martini
Refreshing and sweet, this drink just feels special!

2. Kissed Caramel Cran Martini
Perfect for kissing at midnight, I love this sweet drink paired with a small dessert.


3. Apple Cider Mimosa
Refreshing and a great bubbly compliment for clinking those glasses.


So, now that you’ve seen a few of our favorite drinks, which New Year’s Eve cocktails will you be making this year? Do tell! I know I’m not the only girl who’s ready to clink some glasses!  But before we do that, every good cocktail deserves a fabulous dress as its partner! Even though this year is coming to a close and you’re already decked out in your New Year’s outfit, be it sweats or sparkles, you can always use a party dress. You never know when a special occasion will arise! 

And Shopbop has a slew of solid NYE party dresses to choose from that are perfect to kick off your 2020 wardrobe! In fact, I rounded up some party dresses that are perfect for any dressed up occasion you have on your agenda for the coming months. I’m really feeling pink, black and metallics right now in case you can’t tell. I actually have a winter wedding on my calendar, so I’m trying to narrow down which party dress I’m going to pick up for that! Decisions, decisions…
