New Years Eve Party on a budget

I created this party for New Years Eve 2014. I have always love the vintage art deco/ art nouveau period of art history so I thought it would be great to create a design for New Years Eve inspired by it.
This was just a small get together that I had for the celebration, I had served the following snacks:
– Garlic cream cheese and crackers
– Italian finger wraps
– Shrimp cocktail
– Lots of Chocolate!
All of the glass items used were from the dollar store! I just spray painted them with gold spray paint. I couldn’t find gold glass in the store and I didn’t want plastic. Since I could not bring myself to spray paint something that cost very much money the dollar store turned out to be the perfect place to find glass! I spray paint EVERYTHING! If you get Rustoleum spray paint it will work for just about anything.
I used an old metal scale to hold some of the chocolates, this was something that I had picked up at a flee market it for $10 over the summer, again I just spray painted it with gold paint so it would match the rest of my party items.
I also made the black “dip stands” I picked up little plant pots from hobby lobby then glued and painted them.
The black square dishes that you see are candle holders from ikea, they only cost $4!
I did create, print, as well craft everything that is seen, I also styled & photographed the party… I am a designer on a budget but my creative mind works well so I am pretty good at putting something fabulous together for very little cash.
