With only 10 more sleeps until the big event (New Year’s that is) there’s the last minute scramble to secure your ticket to the hottest event (or at least one’s your friends want to go to..) and the perfect outfit. To fast track the process, we’ve compiled a list of the Top 4 parties in Brisbane and the accessories that will have heads turning! Now to decide which to pick!

Cuba! at Laruche

Adorne Tropical Statement Earrings ($26.95) and Tusks Tribal Necklace ($59.00) – in store

We all know the Cubans are a vibrant bunch so it’s all about bright colours and standing out for Laruche’s CUBA! NYE event. Adorne has a huge range of statement pieces that not only look great, but are affordable as well, so you and your amigos will be ready to jump on AIR LARUCHE and head straight to Cuba! Kicking off at 7pm, guests will be treated to a 5 hour gourmet food and beverage package, including gourmet canapés, premium spirits, wine, sparkling, beer and of course …Cuban-inspired cocktails!

Miami Vice at Bacchus

KILLARI Wall Cuff ($189.00) and KILLARI Ice Cube Ring ($109.00) – available

Miami Vice is all about clean, sexy and sophistication so the key is to keep it simple with some beautiful silver pieces. KILLARI Sterling Silver Jewellery is handcrafted using the finest Peruvian silver, by artisans in Peru. Join this exquisitely presented Miami Vice style NYE celebration in the ultra-stylish surrounds of Bacchus at Southbank and you’ll enjoy free flowing Louis Roederer NV Champagne all night long, together with premium spirits, wines, beers and cocktails.

2012…Shaken Not Stirred at 5ifth Element

Hardy Brothers Sterling Silver Square Onyx Earrings ($998.00) and Sterling Silver Cufflinks ($228.00) – in store

We all know a true Bond girl would never be seen in anything but beautiful diamonds, and Bond himself wouldn’t be anywhere near as suave without his cuff links. Thankfully, Hardy Brothers Brisbane have an incredible range for both men and women, so if you’ve ever fancied yourself as a bit of a Bond or Bond girl, then 5ifth Element at Southbank is where you need to be this NYE! Complete with Bond-style entertainment, 5.5 hour drinks and canapé package (including 4 types of Martinis!), and two fireworks shows – you’ll feel every bit the British Secret Service agent. You’ll be uttering the infamous “Martini…shaken not stirred” line in no time…  All the action begins at 7.30pm – 1am.

Tickets $150.00 | Email [email protected] or call 07 3846 5584 to book.
