HAPPY NEW YEAR!

String together or make them glitter with some paint. Use large numbers to create a sign for the new year to come. Over the mantle, over the dining room table or even as a centerpiece, make sure it’s easily seen by all your party guests. It’s just a nice little way to give a nod to the new year ahead.

2. Simple little banners.

Of course, a simple little banner works great too. It won’t take much work to find one and hang it up. And, it’ll top off the dinner table or little nibbler buffet too. Of course you can put it anywhere in your house for a bit of festive oomph even if you don’t plan on having a party!

Whether you store them in the China cabinet or in a dusty box in the basement, it’s time to get out the good glassware. The tallest stems and the most intricately designed, beautiful glasses make the dinner table look better and the wine and champagne taste a bit sweeter. You must ring in the new year with a stylish glass of bubbly!

5. Blow up some balloons.

For a simple and easy way to create some festivity, just add some balloons! Grab some silver, pearly white and even some gold balloons and fill up your ceilings. It will just add to the party element and every guest can grab one and pop it when the clock strikes midnight. You may even want to use some metallic sharpie markers to write your new year’s wishes and resolutions on the balloons!
