Who wants to spend New Year's Eve in a crowded bar when you can easily throw a party from the comfort of your own home? If you're afraid that an elaborate dinner party may be too expensive, you don't have to fret if you use these simple DIY tips suggested by Better Homes & Gardens. Take a look at some of the festive ideas below:
- Champagne toast: A New Year's Eve party wouldn't be complete without a champagne toast. Be sure that you have enough glasses for everyone on your guest list, and distinguish each glass with colorful ribbon or even use pens that can write and erase on glass. Additionally, if kids are on the guest list make them feel included with a flute of sparkling cider.
- Metallic makeover: "Silver spray paint helps create a cohesive look for these mantel decorations," suggests the lifestyle website. "Even a country-style twig wreath gets a makeover with metallic paint and is garnished simply with star shapes. A metallic-color theme is also a great way to update holiday decorations for New Year's Eve."
- Winter white: You already know that winter white is right on trend. Adding this color to your home design scheme is especially appropriate for New Year's Eve. Whether you want to go all-out, or simply add white accents is up to you. To easily incorporate this shade into your home, fill vases with white flowers or place silver and white ornaments in a glass container.
