Add sparkle to your New Year Eve’s decorations
A New Year’s Eve party just isn’t the same without sparkly decor. Here are a few creative ways to make your end-of-the-year bash truly shine. And don’t hesitate! Today is the last day to receive personalized items before New Years!
Create a dramatic statement as guests enter your home on New Year’s Eve by filling the entryway with balloons. Either pick up metallic options in gold or silver or choose transparent opalescent varieties. Fill the clear balloons with sparkly confetti to bring an additional layer of dimension to them.
Champagne bottles look great once decorated. You can pick up faux oversized versions from a party supply store or used old wine bottles to create your decor. Paint a layer of glue on the exterior of each one. Then roll them in metallic confetti. Get extra crafty and use two shades of glitter for an ombre effect, seen here from Camp Makery. Once the bottles have dried you can display them on your mantel and in other places throughout your home.
Napkins – Don’t forget about decorating your table for New Year’s Eve. You can set the tone by customizing dinner napkins with metallic paper wrapped inside. Just pick up a few foil sheets of gold or silver paper and make parallel cuts in each one. However, don’t snip through to the other edge, you want to keep the sheet intact. Then you can use a napkin ring to secure everything in place and it will look like tons of sparkle is bursting out from your napkins.
Centerpiece – You can place a few of the sparkly bottles in the center of your table. Add some sparkle to your glasses with glitter. Or you could always opt for some gold glitter sugar rims, like these found on Southern Weddings. Then you can add a variety of sparkly items like confetti and glitter inside each glass. Include custom coasters on the table for another layer of New Year’s Eve style.
Your food can take on a decorative twist as well. For instance, dip desserts like cupcakes, truffles, lollipops or other sweet items in edible glitter. Here’s some beautiful inspiration in the form of donuts! Found on Style Me Pretty.
You might also want to head outside during some portion of the evening to watch people’s fireworks displays. Create your own mini showing with sparklers featuring custom sleeves. Hand your guests customized barrel matches so everyone can light their fireworks in style.
Don’t forget that our custom matchboxes pair well with our sparkler sleeves!
