glitter candles via celebrations

Even though Christmas was only just yesterday, we still have one more thing to celebrate before our lives resume normally, sans holidays to look forward to: New Year’s Eve! While Christmas is a day for family, baking, and gift-giving, New Year’s is all about partying, dancing, and having one or two too many drinks. Here are some great NYE party decorations for the perfect celebration!

1. Moon Piñata | Oh Happy Day


The first step to a perfect party would obviously be a piñata. Let’s be real: even though we aren’t kids anymore it is always fun to swing at things with a baseball bat only to uncover the holiness that is candy. These are perfect for the NYE theme.

2. NYE Disco Napkin Rings | Camille Styles

3. NYE Disco Ball | Crafts Tutorials

You may or may not be in Times Square when the ball drops. If not, make your own New Year’s disco ball. This might be a better alternative to the cold New York winds because you will be warm and indoors — just sayin’.

4. Balloon Wall | Martha Stewart

Okay, so we took this from a bridal shower tutorial. So what? This is perfect to create a winter wonderland for the most awaited party of the year (yours)!

5. Confetti Champagne Flutes | Pizzazzerie


Hand us a bottle of champagne and we’ll be good, but try amping it up a bit and decorate the champagne flutes. A little glitter never hurt anyone.

6. 201[4] Signage | Ruffled


Simple, easy, and straightforward. Obviously, it’s going to be 2014 so make sure to change numbers accordingly.

7. Sparkling Setting Center Piece | Martha Stewart

A centerpiece makes or breaks any snack table. Anything shiny will do, but this glassware display will be even better.

8. Glitter Candles | Celebrations

More 2014 decorations? Bring it on. You can choose to light these if you’re in a darker room, but make sure to place them in areas where they can’t be knocked over. NYE parties do tend to get a little rowdy.

9. Candy Poppers | Mother Nature Network


More candy, less problems. These make great party favors.

10. Poinsetta Punch | ChowHound

Don’t forget the champagne, but may we point out that punch is always great for big parties? Make a large batch to keep everyone satiated.

Bonus: Cheeky Hangover Cure Party Favors | Oh So Beautiful Paper


There will be drinking, there will be drinking, and then…there will be more drinking. Hand out these party favors at the end of the night and your guests will thank you the next morning. What a thoughtful host you are!
