Nothing rings in the new year like a sprinkling of confetti. Set up a station so your guests can grab a handful in anticipation of midnight. Fill clear containers and vases with confetti in various colors, shapes, and sizes—just make sure your vacuum cleaner is in perfect working order for next-day clean-up.
Make party prep easy and free yourself for mingling during the event by setting up a make-your-own champagne cocktail bar. Corral ingredients for various yummy libations and include mixing instructions to enable your guests to create their own cocktails and experiment with creative combinations.
Hunt out some fun New Year’s Eve printable photos and phrases (Pinterest is always a good source) and stuff in your various wall-hung and tabletop photo frames for a festive touch.
Utilize the wine and champagne bottles left over from earlier holiday celebrations and spray paint them gold to create festive, New Year’s-appropriate containers for flowers and greenery.
Whether you’ve taken down your tree or it’s still proudly standing, utilize some of the most glittery, shimmering mirror balls and ornaments to add festive flair to your serving surfaces and flower arrangements. Opt for pieces in silver and gold to feel more New Year’s Eve appropriate.
