How to Throw an Elegant Last-Minute New Year’s Eve Party

Whether you want to celebrate a fantastic 2015 or you’re ready to move on to better things in 2016, there’s no better way to mark the occasion than with a great party.


With a few simple design tips, you can easily create a party vibe at home. First, declutter. This doesn’t mean you have to organize the drawers or the insides of your closet, but making sure that surfaces are as bare as possible will make your home feel showroom-ready.

The next step is to choose a color scheme. We chose black and gold, because black is a neutral and offsets the pop of color from gold. Grab 20-30 black and gold latex balloons and attach color-coordinated curly ribbons. Let them float in the corners of your main party area to give it a festive feel. Customize these black and gold napkins and add plates to round it out.


Champagne and sparkling wines in general have long been the most popular drinks at midnight. Follow this guide to help you choose the best bubbly! Even if you think all your guests will want to drink, it’s a great idea to put out a bottle or two of sparkling grape juice as well. Choose a cute bottle chiller, and then arrange it, the bottles, and some gorgeous champagne flutes and pearlescent balloons on a table for guests to serve themselves. Add some cute tags to help guests keep an eye on their drinks!

Serve up some quick-and-easy appetizers as well as some sweets, like these hand-made macaroons. You can arrange them on detailed dessert trays to add an extra special-occasion touch.

You’re all set!
