Ideal NYE Plans...and a little giveaway!


I've never really been one for New Years Eve.  I've done the obligatory mad night out and always found it to be a let down.  I've done the staying in, and inevitably find myself filled with a sense of disappointment come midnight.  This year, I really fancy spending my evening surrounded by loved ones being, dare I say it, a grown up and perhaps throwing a dinner party.

I've been watching Lily Pebbles' vlogmas religiously and particularly enjoyed her birthday gathering's pretty much my ideal get together.  Good food, good company and a low-key event complimented by soft lighting and candles.  Anywhere where I can eat off my lap is a winner for me, and it's definitely my inspiration for a NYE party.  I'm picturing rich copper metallics mixed with soft, blue-toned greys for the perfect dinner party colour palette.

Now here's where the giveaway comes in.  You may have noticed that one or two things from my new favourite shop, Anthropologie, have snuck in to my NYE mood board above, and the lovely folks there have given me a £50 Anthro voucher to give away to one lucky reader.  To be in with a chance of winning, here's what you need to do:

// Check out Anthropologie's NYE post and vote for your favourite night.
// Follow Scared Toast on bloglovin, youtube and on instagram.
// Go and follow my pinterest for lots of interior and New Year's Eve pinning, amongst other things.
// Leave a comment below telling me what you'll be doing this New Year's Eve.  This needs to include your email address so I can get in touch if you win!
// For an optional extra entry, tweet a link to this giveaway post.  I'll leave the phrasing up to you, but be sure to include @scaredtoast in there!

This giveaway is open to UK residents only and closes in two weeks,on the 28th of December when the winner will be chosen at random.  Good luck!
