Banners are the easiest (and cheapest) thing to throw on and they’ve got even more creative this year. You can choose the classic «Happy New Year» banner, but we’re in LOVE with the second one: «F*ck 2020, Hello 2021».

6. Sweet Table

Sweets are probably the most important thing at a party. While a lot of the decorations used in a party are thrown away, you can also purchase items you will use over time.

This is not only a more eco-friendly option, but it’s also a good way to create a sweet table. Sweet tables are a «must» at any party and you can decorate them to fit the theme as well.

A bar cart is a perfect complement to any New Years Eve party ideas. You can add some decor to stick with the festive theme and then put your favorite wine bottles and champagne on it.

9. Candles and Dinnerware

New Year’s Eve is a really special festivity because you get to start a new year with your most loved ones.

Candles will create a feeling of intimacy between your guests. I love candles because they make everything feel instantly cozier.

Dinnerware is also a huge part of your party and you should focus on it probably than in any other aspect of your party. Colors are key, but adding small touches like candles, sparkling confetti or even a clock (so cool!) can make a big improvement.

10. New Year Letterbox

This is additional, but a lightbox can also work as part of your New Years Eve party decorations.

Some people already have a letterbox in their bedrooms or living rooms and they are for less than $15 on Amazon. All you need to do is create a nice text that goes with the party theme.

11. Reusable Party Straws

A jar full of party straws is super cute as a decoration. This is probably a bit weird, but I always see them at parties even when no one is using them.

If you use them at your party, make sure they are reusable and not the ones you throw away. These black and gold ones from Amazon are super cute and you’ll be able to use them more than once.

12. Mirror Balls

Maybe you can’t go to a club, but you can bring the club home. It’s as easy as hanging a mirror ball from your ceiling.

To make it extra cool, you can project light into the mirror balls which will create a «disco» light effect.

New Years Eve Party Games

14. Highlights of the Year Game

This game will give you a lot to talk about. All you need to do is create cards with different sentences like «best moment of the year» or «worst time of the year».

Each member of the group will have to pull out a card and talk about his experience. Well, at least we all know what «worst time of the year» will be (thanks Covid).

This is super easy to set up and one of my favorite New Years Eve party games.

15. New Years Resolutions Game

This is a really easy game you can improvise with your friends or relatives in case you haven’t thought of anything to do on New Year’s Eve.

All you need to do is write your New Years’ resolutions on a piece of paper and put them all in a bowl. Then you have to pull the resolutions one by one out of the bowl and guess who wrote them.

It’s a simple game but it can lead to so many funny moments.

16. Beeropoly

If you want to go even further with your New Years Eve party games you can include drinks. They will definitely make everything funnier and lead to a memorable night.

Beeropoly is like the classic Monopoly but with beer, so it’s perfect for a game night!

17. Spin the Bottle

The classic «Spin the Bottle» game but make it fancier. This game never gets old and has brought so many good memories to my friends and me.

You can use an old school glass bottle or you can get this one from Amazon for less than $10.
