6 Fun New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

We just love a New Year’s Eve party–it’s another excuse for us to wear our favorite sparkly dress, sip champagne, and throw confetti in the air (three of our favorite things!). For those who are hosting a glittery shindig this weekend, we’ve got six fun party ideas for you!

Gold Playing Cards: Games for guests to play can be an entertaining way to keep the party rolling. We love a classic game of cards, and this fancy gold deck makes for a great NYE twist!


NYE Table Décor: Looking for last-minute inspiration for your table décor? Why not go totally glam with glittery gold and soft petal pink? Plus, set out cute cards at each place setting so that guests can devise and write down their New Year’s resolutions! Added bonus: research says that the best way to keep a resolution is to reveal it to others.


Countdown Toast: Have some fun with the countdown toast! Add numbers to the glasses, then have each person lift their glass when their number is chanted.


Tinsel Swizzle Sticks + Winter Wonderland Martini: Make a winter cocktail no one will expect! This “Winter Wonderland Martini” is a rich, sweet indulgence that’s perfect for the holidays. (Add a sparkly tinsel stick for a NYE spin.)


DIY Garland: Create a fabulous garland for your bar area! They’re easy to make and are sure to give your party major style. We recommend this tutorial by Punky Style.


Confetti Invitation: It may be a bit late to send these out, but we simply love the idea of confetti-filled invitations. An alternative? Pass them out as party favors! They’ll certainly come in handy when the clock strikes midnight.
