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.
Deck the Walls (and Ceilings)
Decorate for your New Year’s Eve bash from top to bottom. If you’re pressed for time, simple wall art and ceiling decorations made of balloons or colored paper offer an impressive return for your effort. Oversized confetti will give walls a festive makeover without taking up a lot of space. For those blessed with high ceilings, a canopy of pretty baubles or balloons is a great way to set the mood.
Just Add Shimmer
The tiniest touches can create the largest impact when it comes to tying a theme together. Decorating with smooth metals like silver and gold? Simple gold thumbtacks can change a plain, boring candle into a glamorous centerpiece and bring an added textural element to the table. Silver sequins will shimmer in the light, whether strewn across the table or floating in a vase.
Favorite Festive Favors
From wearables to noisemakers, party favors will ensure that revelers have everything they need to ring in the New Year properly. Get your guests in the mood to celebrate by filling a bowl with confetti eggs and poppers or handing out shimmering hats. Or, give partygoers a personalized box of mints so they can participate in the year’s most important midnight tradition – the kiss.
