New Years Eve is a great excuse to get dressed up and hit the town. But sometimes, you just don’t want to be in a crowded room full of strangers, paying premium prices for low quality drinks. Then there is the hassle of getting home in the wee small hours when you’re tired, your feet hurt and all you want to do is fall into bed.
There is another option - We’ve put together a list of décor, entertainment, food and cocktail ideas so you can host the perfect Adults New Year’s Eve Slumber Party!
Metallics are the perfect accompaniment to a New Years Eve party. Choose from gold, rose gold and silver - stick with one or mix and match and don’t forget to add some sparkle to the evening with glitter partyware. Check out our New Year’s Eve range for inspiration.
New Years Eve Balloon Pop - A simple way to keep adults and kids entertained as you countdown to the new year. Blow up some balloons and write times on them in black marker (eg. 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, 11pm), write a fun activity or question on pieces of paper and put in to the balloons. Guests pop a balloon when it reaches the time on the balloon and do what is written on the note.
Confetti cannons – party poppers and sparklers are so 2016. Why not try a confetti cannon instead. They look great styled on a table and create a magical shower of confetti when it’s time to shout “HAPPY NEW YEAR”.
