"A Happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year."
~ Edgar Guest
Well, it is that time of the year again, to celebrate the good, welcome the new, and let bygones be bygones. But most of all it is the time for that awaited New Year Bash that you and your friends will talk about till the next New Year party arrives. Yes it is time to deck up your party venue with the wackiest of party themes, glowing posters, shiny banners, funky hats, loud horns, sparkling confetti and works! Here are some funky ideas that are guaranteed to transform a mundane and boring New Year's Eve celebration into a happening and rocking New Year bash!
New Year's Eve Celebration Ideas
New Year's Eve decorations can include a variety of things starting from the conventional glitter, confetti and balloons to the unconventional theme items, wacky posters and even customized paper cutlery to make it truly memorable.
Invitations
Yes, your decoration starts right from the beginning. Fancy and unique invitations are the first step in the decorations process. If you are looking for something unique and are ready to spend a little more on the invitations, indulge in some unconventional ones. For example, use interesting trinket boxes to send out invitations, or simply roll up your invitation paper and tie it with a fancy satin ribbon. If you are planning a themed party, pick out an invitation that goes with the theme. You can easily pick the DIY invitation kits that help you to make wonderful invitation cards all by yourself.
Venue Entrance Decoration
Make sure the entrance of the party venue looks inviting enough. Jazz it up with glitter, paste cool posters (handmade or ready-made) that will please your guests and assure them of a great party inside. In case it is too late to send out invitations, or you are the one who prefers email or telephonic invitations, then make it a point to hand out customized 'Entry-passes' at the venue entrance. Such entry passes will make all your guests feel special, and add an element of fun right from the beginning of your party. Include fun rituals, for example, get a customized rubber stamp that says something like 'New Year Bash 2008 -Ron's Party" and use it to imprint the message on the wrists of all your guests. You can also have DIY tattoo kits at the entrance for people who want to wack-up for the party.
Confetti and Glitter
No matter how conventional it sounds, the confetti has to stay! The exhilaration of confetti raining down on you as the clock strikes at midnight will never lose its charm. In case you are reluctant to spend a lot on confetti, you can use those stacked up newspaper and rough paper sheets and trim them to make your own confetti at home. Just add some glitter powder to your homemade confetti, and it'll jazz up your New Year. Also use some glittering posters for the party venue.
Piñatas and Posters
Yes, a bright and vibrant Piñata at the center of your party venue or may be at the entrance can be a great idea. Prop it up against the ceiling with strings and paper ribbons that will enhance the party mood at the venue. Fill up the Piñata with loads of chocolates, candies, confetti and glitter so that you and your guests can break it down at the count of twelve. This can be a fun game as well as a great decorative accessory for your party. If you are planning an informal party, having blank walls can seem quite depressing. Deck up your walls with posters, pictures and all sorts of paper art.
Food and Cutlery
Yes, no matter how great the food and drinks served at the party, make sure to deck it up and present it with decent cutlery. Make sure the place where you will serve the food is clean. Dress up your tables in the choicest of tablecloths. For people who are planning a theme party, they can use tablecloths that go with the theme. You can get printed tablecloths with printed cartoons, flowers, pirates to almost any theme you pick up. In addition to the tablecloth, make sure you have attractive centerpieces, flowers, or even candles to make the food look all the more appetizing. If you are inviting a wild crowd that is sure to bring down your place by the end of the party, make sure you use paper cutlery so that you don't end up crying about your broken china. Attractive designs and prints are also available in paper cutlery and are cost-effective and easily disposable. Same goes for napkins, try to use colorful and vibrant paper napkins. Also have enough bins, located visibly at places so that people can dispose off the garbage and prevent your party venue from turning into a pigsty.
Party Hats and Other Accessories
Party hats, goggles, wristbands, masks, wings and any other props and accessories that enhance the theme of your party are always welcome. For example, if you are having a pirate theme party, it might be a fun idea to distribute eye-patches or even bandanas to your guests. The funky 2008 goggles for the New Year's Eve party will have all your guests in splits. You can even have color themes and accordingly have colored accessories for your party.
Well, once you've got all your decorations in place, just let your hair down and party through the night. Happy New Year! Welcome 2012 with fervor, optimism and all the positive energy you can gather.
