Pippa Middleton Talks New Year’s Eve

Monday, December 31, 2012

PIPPA Middleton says she doesn’t like big, extravagant New Year’s Eve parties.

The 29-year-old socialite — whose sister is Prince William‘s wife Kate Middleton — likes to mark the turning of the year by throwing intimate celebrations for her close friends and family rather than over-the-top bashes.

“My favorite New Year’s Eve parties have not been huge affairs, but the more intimate ones with close friends and family — anything between eight and 25 people,” she said.

“Whatever the numbers, the pressure is on the host to magic up all the necessary ingredients for a fantastic atmosphere. A few good cocktails and canapes early on when the guests arrive will get everyone in the mood.”
