This past year was a wild ride, but there were many highs that's worth celebrating. When it comes to New Year's Eve, there's no better way to kick off another trip around the sun than by throwing an incredible party. However, if you choose to throw a big bash this year, make sure you're doing so responsibly. We know it's hard around the festive season, usually filled with parties and family festivities. Still, it's crucial to minimise the spread of COVID-19, especially as the Omicron variant is on the rise.
So, how do you keep it safe and fun? You can opt for a small masked gathering or have your party over Zoom. We've got some great tips to start 2022 off on the right foot, from decor ideas to delicious New Year's drinks.
No matter what your NYE party theme is, you can never go wrong with cute decorations, a sparkly outfit, delicious appetisers, and lots of champagne. Whether you're keeping it small with a few friends or going all-out, here are some of our New Year's Eve party ideas to help end 2021 with a bang.
Happy Quarantine New Year's Eve Party
The pandemic is still serious news, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun with it. Give guests funny face masks at the door, serve Coronas or COVID-19 cocktails and talk about the good things that have come from this pandemic that you will be taking into the new year.
Throw Some Confetti in The Air
Nothing screams "Happy New Year!" quite like confetti. Decorate with glitter, load up a confetti cannon, and hand out confetti poppers. Kids can make confetti slime. Have a dessert buffet featuring funfetti cupcakes or confetti cake alongside other festive party food. What's more, drop confetti-filled balloons from the ceiling.
New Year's Resolution Jar
What is a New Year's resolution? Something that goes in one year and out the other!
We think it's a great idea to get everyone to start thinking about their New Year's resolutions by encouraging them to write them down - you can even personalise the cards to add some magic and memory to the idea.
Instagram-Worthy Balloon Wall
A Photo Booth Station
You know everyone will be taking tons of photos all night, so make sure you set up a cute spot with festive props and a gold fringe backdrop. And if you can get some disposable cameras or an instant camera, that will elevate the event!
Decorate Your Drinks
Sure, champagne is already festive, but there are a few ways to kick it up a notch. Before your party, hot glue a few gold pom-poms onto wooden skewers to make your drink a little more exciting, or add our unique straws and stirrers to make it extra fancy.
Create Mini Champagne Bottle Labels
This New Year's, try not to make any pour decisions. Your family and friends will be so excited to see they each get a mini champagne bottle as a party favour. You can print your own personalised label that will have everyone remember your fancy event.
