2016 was a crazy year; let’s just leave it at that. Now, the countdown to 2017 is on! New Year’s Eve is just a few days away—are you ready? Whether you’re throwing a party or showing up at one, you’ll want to steal these creative ideas for making this New Year’s one to remember.
This giant bottle of bubbly
Set the tone for a party worth toasting to with this oversized idea. All you need is one champagne bottle balloon, about 30 gold balloons, and a lot of deep breaths to create this installation.
These Jello cups from heaven
Okay, so Champagne is a theme here. This year, make a different kind of toast with sparkly Champagne Jello.
These stylish party hats
Party hats that don’t squeeze your head and are actually cute!? Count us in.
These glammed-up cups
Even your cups want to celebrate the end of 2016! We love this idea, especially if the drinks you’re planning to serve aren’t very pretty on their own (cough *beer* cough).
These all-knowing cookies
What does 2017 have in store? Give your friends a peek into their future with homemade fortune cookies. Write whatever you want on the slips inside—we love the idea of personalizing them to each guest.
This jar of kisses for the relationship-challenged
We’re obsessed with this idea for a jar of chocolate kisses labeled as “midnight kisses.” So what if you’re single? You totally deserve a kiss when the clock strikes 12.
This ball that’s ready to pop
This idea is borderline genius. Just buy a big balloon, fill it with confetti, and pop it at midnight for a serious celebration. Want to go bigger? Hang a whole bunch of them and designate a few friends as party poppers.
This write-it-down-to-make-it-real idea
Okay, so 2016 wasn’t the best year on record. But 2017 isn’t going to be any better unless we make it better! So have everyone write down their New Year’s Resolution and put them all in a jar. Pull them out one at a time and guess whose it is. Once each person owns up, they can be held accountable all year.
What are you doing on New Year’s to make it special? Are you happy to see 2016 go? Let us know in the comments. Cheers!
