10 New Year’s Eve Party Decor Ideas
If there’s a time to bring out the glitz and glamour, it’s New Year’s Eve, the night to leave behind the past and make a toast to all the tantalizing opportunities the new year brings. For your New Year’s Eve soiree, make sure the decor matches the night’s carefree and optimistic spirit, and be sure clink your glasses to these New Year’s Eve party ideas.
1. Flowers For A Fresh Year
Flowers symbolize life, new beginnings and chances to grow. Serve up this fresh energy with champagne flute arrangements on a silver platter. Choose flowers in varying shades of the same color family, like this grape ranunculus spray and pink and wine stem roses.
2. Let Them Eat Fruit
Decadence is in order to celebrate the new year. Fill cake stands with scrumptious fruit like donut peaches, champagne grapes, figs, persimmons, and melon. You could also pile the cake stand with cupcakes and sugar-dusted pastries. Continue the decadence with gold pillar holders and vases.
4. Shine Bright Bar
Dazzle guests by serving up drinks at a radiant bar lit with a warm glow. Hang our rice lights, embellished with paper and vellum floral decorations, around the bar. Set out your prettiest spirits alongside gleaming glassware and matching stirrers in glass cylinder vases for classy cocktails all night long. Use shiny metal buckets to hold ice and champagne.
5. Color Garlands
Multicolored felt garlands hung every which way exude endless cheer and energy for your New Year’s Eve party decor. Get the look with these felt bunting garlands for a festive and fun party space.
6. Pop-Up Centerpiece
Add some larger-than-life flair to your New Year’s Eve celebration decor with a pop-up centerpiece. Stick large honeycomb tissue paper balls on dowels, and then arrange them in our silver urns filled with crinkled paper.
7. Supersized Dessert Bar
Here’s a delicious New Year’s Eve party idea: Give your dessert bar a modern refresh by using a few large glass vases jars instead of small candy jars. Fill fishbowl vases with a curated selection of sweets that match your color scheme. Tape balloons to the wall behind the dessert bar to add to the oversized whimsy.
8. Glass Votives
New Year’s Eve calls for votives and candles that burn the midnight oil in style. We love the modern look of these thick glass tea light holders. For classic looks that even include some gilding, go with our etched glass votive holders with gold rims. Put them on every suitable surface for warm candlelight.
9. On-point Poinsettias
Poinsettias get a refresh when single stems are placed in fluted silver and bottle-shaped bud vases. Let single vases stand on their own for a singular statement, or group them on a mantel for extra impact.
10. Art Imitates Life
Take a cue from floral designer Lindsey Taylor and add artistic drama to your New Year’s Eve soiree with flower arrangements of red amaryllis, a protea flower, and Magnolia grandiflora leaves in our glass vases in washed rattan cages, arrangements echoing the one in the 1928 painting “Marguerite Kelsey” by Meredith Frampton. Try it in our similar glass vase on a wood base.
