Ring in the New Year with Style Decorating for New Year’s Eve is a chance to let your inner diva come out to play. From the dazzling glint of late-night fireworks to the soft glow of Champagne bubbles, New Year’s Eve is a time to celebrate with flair. These ideas will inspire a stylish celebration with decorations that sparkle and shine.
Spirits with Sparkle

When it comes to New Year’s décor, there is no such thing as over doing it. Even your stemware deserves a little shine and the right touch will make that midnight toast an event to remember. Transform inexpensive Champagne flutes from flat to fabulous with a little gold or silver paint. For a more subtle shimmer, rim the glass with sugar or edible glitter.

The dessert table offers another opportunity to fill your party with pizzazz. Strategically place metallic pom-poms to simulate sparklers for fireworks that last all night, or cut cupcake wrappers out of glittery paper for a quick boost of radiance that really catches the light.

The tiniest touches can create the largest impact when it comes to tying a theme together. Decorating with smooth metals like silver and gold?

Silver sequins will shimmer in the light, whether strewn across the table or floating in a vase.
