It’s almost time to chime in 2010! If you’re still searching for the perfect New Year’s Eve party inspiration, look no further than a green and silver soiree featuring your favorite left over Christmas decor and delicious lavender & mint cocktails.
Silver and white is an ideal palette to build on — you likely have all white dishware around the house and maybe even a few silver platters, stands, serving utensils or candle holders. Tie in a bit of green as a complimentary color and you’re set!
Freezing edible goodies in ice cubes is my favorite way to fancy up a favorite cocktail. You can find edible violets at a specialty super market (just be sure to call before hand to save yourself a trip) or at many high-end gardening stores (clarify that you’re looking for the organic, non-sprayed version).
More great images and ideas after the jump!

Ornaments that compliment your theme are most welcome! They are shiny and glittery and most definitely meet New Year’s Eve decor criteria.
Cucumbers make an excellent green (and tasty) garnish, here are two clever ways to incorporate them (they make a delicious infused cocktail as well!).
Enjoy your New Year’s celebration with family and friends — may you have a wonderful and special day!
