New Year’s Eve is the one-day each year where you can incorporate as many sparkles and as much confetti as your heart desires. In fact, we’re pretty sure that New Year’s Eve is the quintessential holiday for glitter. Whether your plans involve throwing a party or attending one, here are some creative ideas to consider.
Bubbly Bar: It’s not a New Year’s Eve party without one of these. A “bubbly bar” allows your guests to taste and personalize their champagne drinks. A bar cart is a great alternative if you want to make the “bubbly bar” a mobile attraction. They’re the perfect display for your champagne and treats. Pop, fizz, clink!
Golden-Brushed Balloons: Go out and get a dozen helium-filled white latex balloons with strings attached. Wear gloves and hold the balloon by the tied end. Use gold enamel paint or “liquid gold leaf” and apply to balloons in quick, upward strokes. Make sure to only gild the bottom third to get this look.
Sparkly Bottles: Glam up your bottles and make them as sparkling as the wine inside. Grab a can of Super 77 adhesive spray, latex gloves, an old sheet, and as much glitter as you can find. Spray the bottle and sprinkle glitter over the adhesive one section at a time. Repeat until the whole bottle is covered, then shake off the excess glitter and display. Make sure to leave the top third of the bottle clean so you can pop the champagne!
Photo Booth Props: If you don’t have pictures it didn’t happen, right? Having photo props instantly adds to the fun and lowers the risk of awkward poses. You can also have a chalkboard that people write their resolutions on and hold up for a snapshot.
Quirky Tip: Add a little extra something by hanging a fortune cookie off of each champagne glass. Everyone is going to want to know what’s in store for them once the clock hits midnight.
