Ayr Barns and Becca Interiors founder, Becca Casey welcomes us into her home amidst the excitement of the holiday season to show a peek into how she decorated her 1950's Provencial-inspired Connecticut Country House.
In the spirit of the season, Becca shares her top five quick tips for making your New Year's Eve celebrations more memorable.

Tip #1. Create an amazing playlist to soirée your guests into the wee hours. I love to start off with smoother jazz as guests arrive and end the night with songs that make you kick off your heels and sing!
Tip #2. Whether a large or small party, passed canapés and cheese boards are always a delight.
Consider a few our favourite recipes from the INSPIRE blog for Slow Roasted Pear Chips or Seeded Crackers with Chili and Tomato Jam!
Tip #3. Have your guests write down their intentions and aspirations for the New Year, then ask them to share with the group.
Tip #4. Set the mood and let the room sparkle with candlelight throughout. Small 3" votives dotted throughout the room will twinkle as you welcome in the New Year.
Tip #5. In more recent years, I have found myself pouring our midnight toast into a dazzling coupe glass. I love the old-time elegance that they bring to the evening.
Wishing you all wonderful celebrations and a special New Year! Becca xx
