The 10 Best Last Minute New Year’s Eve Party Ideas From Us and Around the Internet
1. Make it disco ball inspired
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about NYE is, of course, disco balls. And that encompasses all things shimmery and shiny and confetti filled. Pull out all the stops for a disco ball party by simply picking up silver items and mirrored pieces, and before you know it your living room will resemble a disco ball. Don’t forget your disco drinks!
2. Make it breakfast for dinner
Few things are more delicious than breakfast for dinner. Maybe even make the attire pajamas! And no breakfast or brunch is complete without mimosas, and you can quickly pull together a colorful mimosa bar in just a few steps.
3. Make it full of wine and cheese
Wine and cheese is certainly one of our all time favorite combinations. An easy party to pull together in no time flat is one that focuses on wine and cheese. Grab a bunch of bottles (have your friends bring their favorites, too!) and whip up a colorful cheese and snack board that everyone is sure to love.
4. Make it festive with coordinating cocktails
Come up with a few signature cocktails (bonus points for colorful ones!) and serve a different one every hour. You could even have your friends bring their favorite cocktails and have them dress to match. Fun and festive!
5. Make it a fondue party
It’s always a great time when the party is interactive and when your guests can help to make their food or drinks. Fondue is delicious and easy peasy!
6. Make it full of balloons
More balloons, please! You know we love balloons. You can fill up your space with balloons, including some themed ones, and you’ve immediately brought the party vibe.
7. Make it crafty
Either make some NYE headbands for your guests or buy the supplies and have it all set up and let everyone make their own as a fun activity while waiting up for the ball to drop.
8. Make it confetti filled
Second to our love for balloons would have to be our love for confetti. The more the better! Try your hand at confetti poppers or, like above, have the ingredients ready for your guests and include them in the fun.
9. Make it a cocktail party
It might sound simple, but it’s nothing less than an amazing time with a cocktail party full of all sorts of different drinks.
10. Make it sweet
A chocolate theme never hurt anyone, right? 😉 Or simply make it a dessert party, and everyone can come after their dinners. Chocolate and Chardonnay works for me!
