5 Creative Ways to Ring In the New Year

If you are hosting a New Year’s Eve party this year, why not have a fun theme for you and your guests to celebrate with?  Whether you are going for a full party theme, or just fun ideas for decorations and treats, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite New Year’s Eve inspirations.  Here are some of my favorite ideas to ring in 2016!

 

Wild Masquerade

Masquerades are a classic for New Year’s, but we love this idea of an animal theme!  Have your guests come as their favorite animal, or have a centerpiece full with masks for them to choose from.  Either way, this is sure to be a fun celebration!

New Year’s Eve: All That Glitters

It’s really hard for me to write a New Year’s Eve blog since I’ve never been one to go for all the “razzle dazzle” evening.  New Years Eve was always a family night in our house.  We would spend it with dear friends and their children and ring it in banging on pots and pans!  Perhaps I never did the “adult” New Years Eve party because after our big Italian Christmas Eve, I just wanted some quiet time with friends.

Our children are grown and gone and they seem to be doing some of the same things – just spending the evening with close friends and family.  Here are some ideas that would work well for those smaller celebrations, with just enough glitz to ring in the New Year!
