Transform Your Home From Holiday to Par-Tay (Just in Time for NYE!)
Just add glitter and confetti.
Confetti and Champagne are synonymous with end-of-year celebrations, but adding and subtracting these simple holiday elements are guaranteed to transform your home in time for the New Year! Decorating is the most exciting part of planning a party, and a little creativity goes a long way. Follow our festive steps to make sure you ring in the New Year right!
1: Invite Early
Send out invitations 4-6 weeks to allow guests to plan for your New Year’s soiree. The holidays are a busy time and calendars fill up quick! Missed the deadline? Go informal with a photo of a festive invite sent via Evite, Facebook events or even via text.
2: Go Glam
Exchange traditional colors of reds & greens for a more modern approach of gray, black and white, with touches of gold and silver accents.
3: Swap in Festive Focal Points
Swap holiday wreaths and garland for a confetti-filled, metallic balloon cluster. Search your home for metallic items, like candles, vases, trays or glassware to create a new look for nothing.
4: From Holiday for Part-Tay
Remove holiday elements and fillers, like holly. Use numbered stickers to add countdown touches throughout your decor. Place stickers on favor boxes, Champagne flutes and drink stirrers!
5: Add a Signature NYE Item
Finish the transformation with 1 custom-made piece just for the party. How cute is our sparkly DIY NYE signage? See our step-by-step tutorial below.
- chipboard numbers
- decoupage glue
- hot glue gun
- glue sticks
- sponge brush
- twine, for hanging
Add the Sparkle to Each Letter
Use foam brush to apply decoupage glue on each number (image 3) - Cover the letter with confetti (image 4).
Assemble & Display!
Let dry for one hour, or until completely set. Measure twine to length and align along the back of the numbers. Hot glue twine into place, then hang for a festive party backdrop. Here's to a new year full of cheer (and confetti)!
