I always like themed parties. It creates a great party atmosphere and makes everyone seem different. I really wanted to have a birthday party for AS since we didn’t celebrate mine in a big way this year. But he was adamant that we don’t need another birthday party as on his birthday we were on board Carnival Sprit so instead I decided to throw a New Year’s Eve Masquerade party and I have to say we had a ball.
AS was excited as well so he was in charge of cocktails and drinks. He did a great job, as everyone loved his Margarita.
I did the decoration and had the banner that said Happy New Year 2014.
I bought a gold colour mask that went well with my black dress and AS bought a sliver one.
All our friends and family were wearing a variety of masks so it was a fun event.
Everyone was at our place by 7pm so after eating the entrée we all went to The Brighton Beach for 9pm fireworks. We managed to be there on the beach on time for the fireworks even though there were thousands of people walking to the same direction and there was nearly no room to move on the pavements.
It was a beautiful firework and it went for 20 minutes. The council must have spent heaps of money and I love the heart shaped design the fireworks made and other shapes as well.
After fireworks, we all were starving so dinner was served. We ate, danced and had AS’s surprised cake.
It was almost midnight by then so we all gathered around the TV to watch Sydney’s firework. The Sydney Opera House and harbour bridge sparkled with tons of exploding fireworks unleashed at midnight as Australia was one of the first countries in the world to celebrate the arrival of the New Year.
If anyone has missed it, here is the video, it is always so amazing.
After the fireworks, the music was still on so we were doing Macarena ,Mambo No 5 and all the other popular numbers. AS was dancing as well so it was a great evening.
Few of our friends were staying over with us that night and by the time, we all went to bed; it was 3am on 1st of January 2014.
Hope everyone one had a great New Year celebration. Hope this year will bring lots of happiness, good health and great company to everyone.
Take care everyone,
