We’re just days away from 2015!! New Year’s Eve is an amazing night where we celebrate with friends and family, and ring in the New Year and all the changes it may bring. Whatever your plans are to celebrate for the New Year, we have some helpful tips to make the night truly wonderful!
New Year’s Eve decorating is all about glamor. Here are some easy and inexpensive ways to add fancy and elegant decorations to your home.
Hanging ornaments: Don’t put away your Christmas ornaments just yet! To create an amazing hanging decoration, string silver, gold and glass ornaments from the ceiling. The more the better!
Table scape: If you’re planning a New Year’s Eve dinner this year, create an elegant table scape! The clock theme is always a classic.
Wreathes: Swap out your Christmas wreath with a shiny New Year’s Eve wreath! Choose a color scheme, and dress it up with bows, ribbons, glitter, ornaments, and various New Year’s Eve decorations.
If you’re hosting a party or dinner, or just having a few friends over to watch the ball drop, you’ll want to make sure you have tasty and festive refreshments!
Chips and dip: Transform ordinary chips and dip by serving them in a top hat and martini glass! If you don’t want to use your existing stemware, plastic versions can be purchased for only a few dollars.
Dessert: Take your favorite cookie, cake, or cupcake recipe, and decorate them with New Year’s appropriate text or pictures!
Drinks: Create festive tags for your glasses! You can also write your guest’s names on the back so no one’s drinks get mixed up.
If you’re going all out this year with a party, here are a few ideas to make sure your guests have the night of the year!
Photo booth: Create a celebratory backdrop to take pictures of your guests! They will love to have a memento from the last night in 2014.
Balloon drop: Set up your very own balloon drop for when the clock strikes midnight! While certainly a lot of effort, your guests will absolutely love it.
If you’re celebrating with kids this year, there are so many ways to ensure that both you and they have a fun and awesome evening.
Party bags: Create these fun gift bags for your kids! Fill them with fun toys, games, and treats, and give to them when the clock strikes midnight! Or, make smaller versions and give to them each hour.
Crafts: Create New Year’s Eve wands with your kids. Decorate with fun embellishments, and have your kids write their wishes or resolutions on the outside!
Whatever your plans may be, we at D.J.'s Painting & Remodeling hope these tips have been helpful, and wish you a great evening and a fantastic New Year!!!
