9 New Year’s Eve Decoration Ideas To Add A Little Sparkle

If you're looking to add a little sparkle, here are some simple but splashy New Year's Eve decoration ideas to help you ring in the new year in style.

Garlands Galore

Cut up some shimmery strips of tissue paper and make a simple tassel garland.  Recycle ribbons and leftover holiday wrapping paper to make streamers and pennant banners.  Get creative!

Light It Up

Harsh overhead lights are instant mood-killers.  Deck out your place with twinkly string lights and paper lanterns.  These soft lights are not only functional, but they create the perfect party ambiance!

Confetti Chaos 

Whether it be a surprise party or a ball drop, everyone loves confetti!  As a mess-free alternative, try emulating confetti on your walls using strips of washi tape or by cutting giant colorful confetti out of construction paper.  This is another great way to reuse holiday wrapping instead of tossing it!

Let the Countdown Begin

There is no better way to celebrate this holiday than watching the ball drop or attentively waiting for the second hand to bring you from one year to the next!  Play up the countdown theme by adorning your home with clocks – real or even cut-out!  Collect your alarm clocks and try crafting a fun centerpiece for the occasion.

Bubbly Balls 

Hang a few bubbly ball decorations of different sizes in hues like silver, white, and gold.  These festive baubles look like champagne bubbles rising to the top of a flute!  How cute!  (And don’t forget to pair it with a bottle of real champagne, of course!)

Tinsel Time

Grab the tinsel off your tree, or find it on sale after Christmas in your local drugs stores.  Cut out large cardboard numbers, and get wrapping!  These dramatic numerals will make for the perfect photo op!

Balloon Blitz

Balloons are a staple at any festive party!  They are inexpensive and create an over-the-top ambiance perfect for a New Year’s Eve bash.  Create decor drama by filling the room with large silver and white balloons.  Pop them with your friends to ring in the new year!

A Galaxy Far, Far Away

Make your celebration celestial by decorating with stars, moons, and anything you might find in the night sky!  A moon piñata?  Check.  Origami stars?  A must!  Constellation cookies?  The sky’s the limit – literally!
