New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching and if you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve party, you might be challenged with how to decorate affordably while still making a huge impact on your guests. Fortunately, it can be done! Here’s how:
Focus On The Decor Surrounding The Food/Drinks
We all know that parties are about the food and drinks, and a New Year’s Eve party is no different – especially when it comes to the drinks! Since almost everyone at your party is going to be gathered around where the food and drinks are, this is where you’re going to want to put most of your decorating budget at. Spring for a fun and colorful tablecloth in black or a metallic color like gold or silver to set the backdrop, and use coordinating cups, plates and silverware. Add a glitzy centerpiece and you’re done!
Balloons are usually reserved for birthday parties, but they’re exceptionally inexpensive and can really punch up a New Year’s Eve party! Purchase a pack or two of color coordinating balloons and have them filled with helium at your local florist, tying long curling ribbon on the end of each balloon. Simply let them float to the ceiling wherever you’re hosting your New Year’s Eve party and the area will be instantly transformed without spending a lot of money.
Give Guests Hats, Funny Glasses Or Other Party Favors
The great thing about New Year’s Eve parties is that it’s customary to wear glittering hats and headbands that have cardboard numbers on springs to ring in the new year. These can often be purchased in bulk and can be passed out to guests as they arrive for your party. Even though your guests are wearing the decor, it will still add to the overall look and feel of your party, getting everyone excited and creating the perfect “party” atmosphere!
By choosing New Year’s Eve decorations that make the most impact, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. But no matter how you choose to decorate your New Year’s Eve party, remember to have fun, stay safe and drink responsibly.
