New Year's Eve

Host A Magnificent Feast

Ending the year with a grand dinner is a great way to spend quality time with your family and enjoy the festivity of a happy New Year’s Eve together. Create a festive ambiance for a splendid and memorable New Year’s Eve dinner.  Set up a fabulous tablescape by covering the table with a black spandex tablecloth and layer a mirror foil runner on top to ooze oodles of glimmer and shimmer. Position black candelabra at the center of the table and scatter gold glass geometric votive candle holders all along the middle to emanate a warm and soft glow. Also, place gold disco mirror balls for an added festive flair. Use gold reef chargers and black napkins along with gold rings to elevate the place settings up by several notches.

Fun Countdown Ideas At Home

Bring joy and amusement to the New Year bash by crafting your own ball drop for the New Year’s Eve Countdown. All you need is a Styrofoam ball, rhinestones, and some glue. Simply stick rhinestones to the Styrofoam ball using glue and hang this gleaming ball in the middle of your living room, dropping it down as the clock strikes 12 while saying happy New Year for a lively celebration. If you want to celebrate New Year’s Eve with kids, you can also involve them by making a ball shaped piñata using Styrofoam ball and foil fringe hanging curtains and let the kids bang it to collect candies or take a large clear confetti balloon and put small balloons inside it and pop it at midnight to impart a cheerful vibe to the New Year’s Eve party ambiance.

Plan Exciting Activities

To keep the party going, plan a couple of fun-filled things to do on New Year’s Eve for your family as you wait for the New Year’s Eve ball drop. Make the night unforgettable by capturing the moments and for this purpose create a photo booth with tassel string curtains, balloons, and a happy New Year banner adding a touch of glamour to the photographs. As on New Year everyone makes resolutions, so ask them to write down their resolutions on paper chits, put them inside a jar and later read them together. Also, create a drink and dessert station to keep the attendees entertained. Set up a gorgeous table by attaching a gold curly willow taffeta skirt to the table and arrange 3 tier wooden top dessert display stand, decorative acrylic serving trays, gold trim apothecary jars with lids, and drink dispensers to glam up the presentation.
