New Year’s Eve 2014 – Party Ideas

New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night! Whether you are planning a big night out or a cozy evening at home with kids, it’s always fun to get festive when ringing in the New Year.  Here are a few ideas to inspire your NYE preparations!  Our friends at Party City have some fun glasses, sweets, tinsel and confetti to kick off 2014 in style!  If you don’t have a grand style plan, you can always run out and bring colorful sweets and glasses into your decor.




Mini clock faces can be made with white fondant and edible ink!  I love these!

Glitter Bomb Your Glassware!

This is another fun idea – glitter bomb your glassware! Buy spray adhesive and then sprinkle glitter on your glasses – or even plastic glassware if you want to toss it after your big party!


Party City also has these fabulous 2014 balloons!  Perfect for any NYE celebration!

Ralph Lauren Clock Plates

My favorite tabletop idea is to utilize clock plates in the New Year’s Eve table setting. Ralph Lauren used to make these fabulous clock plates, but they are no longer sold through their website directly.  You can find them online through antique shops and other resellers.  Pottery Barn also had some fabulous clock plates but the most inexpensive idea is to go online, GOOGLE “clock face template” and print a few fun ones and cut them to size. (You may need to enlarge them to fit a standard plate size).  Purchase some plain glass plates or chargers and place the clock faces underneath for a fun look!  This one is from Fabiana over at Ciao! Newport Beach:

NYE sparklers in dessert

Another fun idea is to incorporate sparklers in dessert when it’s served!  Shortly before midnight of course!

By far the COOLEST idea I have seen today is the Do-It-Yourself Sequin Photobooth idea from the Oh Happy Day blog- click here for the complete “how to”:

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
