Happy New Year!


New Year’s Eve is almost here, which means most of us will be planning or attending festive fêtes and sophisticated soirées! In anticipation of one of the most celebrated nights of the year, we’ve collected ideas and inspiration for food and fun to help you ring in 2016.

Instead of throwing confetti everywhere, fill clear balloons with confetti and then pop them when the clock strikes midnight! Not only will your guests have fun popping the balloons, but you’ll also have some festive decorations!

Use rock candy in your champagne glasses for a unique and bubbly look! For best results, opt for clear- or blush-colored rock candy. We’ve also included a link to a tutorial for making glitter champagne bottles!

This free printable game is a fun way to recap what was best about 2015. It includes cards like Best Conversation, Favorite Song, and Best Thing You Did For Someone Else This Year. We also really like this Kiss Me! New Year’s Eve Kit from The Dating Divas. It gives instructions (and free printables!) for making a festive gift bag including Hershey’s Kisses, lip balm, minty gum, and truth or dare!
