5 Last Minute NYE Party Ideas

Happy New Years Eve! WOW, it’s the last day of 2014 – can you believe it? Where has the time gone? I feel like just yesterday I was reminiscing on how amazing 2013 was for me and now it’s time to do it all over again! Here are a few of my favorite last minute ways to ring in the new year! They’re all super easy and won’t take too long to pull together {so they’re perfect for those of you procrastinators like me} Until next year!

1. Add some confetti to the balloons before you fill them up with helium. They make for a festive special touch and would even be fun to pop with friends and family when the clock hits midnight!

2. Top champagne glasses with fortune cookies. This is a quick and easy way to add some fun to your bubbly. Stop by your local Chinese take out and grab a handful to open after a toast to the new year!

3. Fill martini glasses with store bought cupcakes. And then tell your friends how you slaved over them for hours! Only kidding! When you’re in a crunch and don’t have enough time to bake up some treats, this is a great way to hide the store bought packaging and create a decorative display. {Also great for individual portions so guests can stand and mingle while indulging in sweet treats}

4. Don’t forget the party hats! Spice up those plain old party hats with some sparkly scrapbook paper and some left over tinsel from the Christmas tree and you’ve got yourself a party. You could even set out all the paper, tinsel and other supplies and create a “make your own party hat” table if you’re cutting it close on time. {tutorial included}

5. DIY Glitter cups. This one is probably my favorite, and it could get messy… but how cute are these and who doesn’t love glitter? Grab some plain plastic party cups, some mod podge and glitter from the craft store and make sure to let them set for a few hours before you pop open the bubbly. {tutorial included}
