Happy New Year to all of our Mirror80 readers! Wishing you a festive New Year’s Eve celebration and a restful New Year’s Day. Thank you for making this past year at Mirror80 a fabulous one. Over the next few days, we will be sharing some of our favorite moments from 2013, as well as our goals for the year ahead. For now, we’d love to share our latest Pinterest board, which is packed full of last-minute retro-style New Year’s party ideas, as well as sparkling vignettes for the upcoming awards show season (anyone hosting an Oscar party)?
A Retro New Year’s Celebration
Greetings! I’m in the midst of planning this weekend’s Retro Foodie photo shoot. It’s a New Year’s celebration–with an ’80s twist. The plan is to incorporate lots of silver and gold, as well as a hot shade of teal. For an accent color, what would go better with teal than mauve? But we’re updating things a bit with one of today’s hot blushing colors: rose gold. Hints of pink will be evident in details like truffles and a signature champagne cocktail I’m perfecting. Read on for more details and inspiration…
Happy New Year from Mirror80!
We wish you the Happiest of New Years…may 2013 bring you health, joy, fulfilled dreams, and a big dose of ’80s style at its best! Today we travel back in time to 1989 with this screen shot from When Harry Met Sally. And we also travel back to December of 2010, when Mirror80 was a few months old and we featured a blog post on “New Year’s Eve style” from this very film. Read it here! Don’t forget that the oh-so-inexpensive streamers and confetti you can buy at your local party store are the perfect way to add ’80s flair to a tray of champagne glasses!
’80s New Year Decor
Why is party decor so inherently ’80s?! We’ve explored this phenomenon in the realm of Halloween decorations, and now we’re on the cusp of the new year, once again blown away by the 1980s flair that oozes from mainstream party supply retailers. What’s at the root of this glittery revival?! The flash, the eye-catching aspect of festive occasions, a nostalgia that has entered the minds of product designers? Or perhaps ’80s design mimicked party pizzazz back in the day. Whatever the inspiration, how can you not love the results? Especially when everything is so darn affordable…
