Today’s post is full of more “over-the-top” New Year’s Eve Party Ideas for your end-of-the-year soiree! Below you’ll find more great inspirations for your party decor and some of my professional catering tips.
I’ve also included an Easy New Year’s Eve Downloadable Garland project for under $3.00! It only takes a few hours of time and some metallic card stock. Voila!
So, let’s get started with some great New Year’s Eve Party Ideas !
Here’s on of my favorite New Year’s Eve Party Ideas. When I throw a party I always have my “party emergency kit” nearby.
It’s nothing elaborate, but it comes in handy when a guest has a mishap that needs attention. Once you put one together, you’ll have it ready for all your gatherings.
Here’s my list of suggested items to stock inside your emergency kit:
Your party emergency kit simply needs to be refreshed as needed. Make sure your towel and sponge are clean before your next party, and you’re good to go!
I chose a cute basket that I decorated with ribbons I used elsewhere in my party decor. Rolling and decorating the white towel with the same ribbons on the TRUFFLED POPCORN display is a nice touch too.
Download and print on any color glossy or metallic card stock that matches your party’s theme! It takes under two hours to print, cut, assemble and hang!
Just choose what color(s) of glossy or satin card stock you want to use and get started! (the letter outlines are in black, so no color printer is needed for this project)
Using an X-acto type knife with a self-healing mat made quick and easy work of this project. I did use scissors to cut out a few letters and stars for my New Year’s Eve Downloadable Garland, though. It took a bit longer, but was still super easy.
This is one of the “over-the-top” New Year’s Eve Party Ideas that is both easy and inexpensive. I put together the whole New Year’s Eve Downloadable Garland in just a few hours and spent under $3.00 ($2.86, to be exact!)

This is the last of the “quirky New Year’s Eve Traditions” I’m featuring, and it’s a little kinky.
Historic Categena on Columbia’s Caribbean coast is a beautiful choice for New Year’s Eve. It’s comes with palm trees, white sandy beaches, fireworks and bright yellow underwear!
If you’re traveling to any country in South or Central America during the holidays, make sure you pack some brightly colored undies.
In a number of these countries, wearing yellow or red underwear on New Year’s Eve can increase your chances to find luck or love during the new year. Yellow is the real favorite here, so if you forget yours, no worries, even the street vendors sell them!
Before midnight, why not “frame” your guests in a fabulous photo memory of your New Year’s Eve Soiree! This New Year’s Eve Photo Prop Picture Frame is also just perfect for a NYE ZOOM party too!
What’s more fun than clicking away, taking loads of fun pictures all New Year’s Eve long? That would be making this festive and fabulous New Year’s Eve Photo Prop Picture Frame!
It’s such an easy project that comes together in just a few hours. From downloading the Photo Prop Picture Frame PDF to arranging the props just how you like them, it’s just that simple.
And can we talk inexpensive? The entire cost is for one 30″ x 40″ black foam core board, and of course, color ink. But, if you have a black and white printer, you can choose to color your photo props yourself with markers or paint.

According to “the source“, that is Wikipedia, a nightcap is an alcoholic beverage consumed right before bed. Typically it’s of a higher alcohol content than what might have been enjoyed earlier in the evening.
Since my guests will be making their way home afterwards, I’m keeping my nightcap on the lower end of potency.
I’m really liking this idea for New Year’s. It takes the pressure off of the host to get everyone a drink in their hands simultaneously. Can you spell S-T-R-E-S-S? Unless you’ve got lots of “helpers” among your friends, this can be a fabulous substitute.
A nightcap is meant to end the evening with a warm, cozy ambiance. What better way to greet the cold trip home in these chilly winter months. (Obviously, your guests won’t be leaving as soon as they finish their drinks!)
