A Festive Fete
A pink and white palette with metallic accents sets a festive mood for a New Year's Eve fete. Learn how to create this sophisticated look for your own end-of-year bash.
Custom Printable Invitations
Get guests in the festive mood by sending out this custom-designed printable invitation. Add your party details and embellish the bow design with glitter before sending to guests.
To create this celebratory look, use oversized round balloons, easy-to-make garlands and gorgeous ribbons throughout the space.
Make Your Own Tassel Garland
Tassel garlands are a huge trend and can be made in a variety of sizes. This larger version is big enough to dress the front of a buffet table, while the smaller version adds flair to dining chairs. Get the step-by-step tutorial to make your own tissue paper garland.
Make a Sparkling Ribbon Garland
For another easy decoration, punch glittered paper with a two-inch or three-inch circle punch and sandwich thin ribbon between two circles with craft glue or double-sided tape.
Dressed-Up Party Favors
Using basic party goods as templates, create your own tiaras and noisemakers to match the pink and gold party theme. Embellish with glittered cardstock, fringed tissue paper and decorative brads. Or, set up a station at the party so the guests can decorate their own.
Get step-by-step instructions to create your own paper tiaras this New Year's Eve.
Such Great Heights
Elevate your party's style by displaying desserts on cake plates staggered in height. A fancy layer cake trimmed with pink and gold fondant ruffles is the perfect match for this party theme.
Edible Gold Embellishments
Pink cake pops sprinkled with edible gold glitter and embellished with gold bows tie in beautifully.
Cupcakes are a sweet addition to the dessert table, especially when displayed in coordinating cupcake wrappers and topped with printable New Year's Eve designs.
Bring on the Champagne
Champagne is synonymous with New Year's Eve. Before midnight strikes, try mixing it up with simple cocktail recipes.
DIY Drink Embellishments
Dress up your serving vessels with tiny ribbon bows or DIY swizzle sticks made from straws and tissue paper.
Easy Peach Sparkler
Champagne cocktails needn't be complicated to set a festive mood. To make this simple peach sparkler, fill a champagne flute a quarter of the way with sparkling peach juice, then fill the remainder with champagne or your favorite sparkling wine. Rim each glass with edible gold glitter before serving.
Little Bites, Big Flavor
A New Year's Eve party typically means a late night, so be sure to offer a variety of appetizers and snacks to keep your guests in a festive mood. Bite-sized appetizers skewered on party picks are easy for guests to eat with a cocktail in hand. Write down the appetizer offerings on our printable menu cards to let guests know what they're eating.
Simple, fresh watermelon-and-feta bites flavored with red wine vinegar and mint pair perfectly with bubbly champagne. Get the recipe!
Dazzling Buffet Labels
Label each dish with a printable buffet tag embellished with gold glitter.
After midnight, send guests home with a mini favor bag packed with treats they can enjoy on New Year's Day. Label each bag with a printable "Thank You" tag.
For a simpler favor, attach our printable party flags to monochromatic tubes of white candies (such as Sixlets) and hand out as guests depart.
