New Year’s Eve parties are famously wild affairs, but some people favour a smaller, more intimate gathering of friends and family. For whichever you prefer, Confetti has the perfect selection of decorations to dress your party.

When decorating their New Year’s Eve parties, most hosts tend to stick to the classic colour schemes of black and gold or black and white, with glamour being to go-to theme. So make your party glisten with acrylic garlands and decorative drops, and add dashes of glittering silver.

Gold is usually a dominant colour scheme for a New Year’s Eve party. Consider the shiny, sparkly option of gold glitter, sequins and crystals, or go for the more metallic route with metal effects and tinted glass.

But rather than sticking to the beaten track, don’t be afraid of adding another colour tone to your decorations. For example, blush or dusky pink adds a level of fun and sweetness to the dramatic blacks and golds.

Also, New Year’s Eve is a great opportunity to experiment with party themes. Consider an art deco theme as a tribute to the wild abandon of the Roaring Twenties, or a casino theme to bring in the class of a black-tie evening.

Whatever theme or colour scheme you decide, ensure your party is well lit. The light from candles, strings of lights, and classic chandeliers will make your glassware and crystals sparkle. Mirrors add to the effect, as do huge windows that look out at a lit-up city skyline. Darker parties can be just as stylish, of course, but rather than compromising the level of light, we suggest you use a higher ratio of black.

Keep your guests happy with a selection of New Year’s Eve drinks—from wine to cocktails and, of course, champagne to toast the New Year when the clock strikes midnight. Accessorise your martini glasses with pretty metallic straws and then complete your party with little extras. For example, arrange sweets and treats for your guests to take home.
