As if planning and pulling off Christmas wasn’t enough — now it’s already time for New Year’s Eve!
The good thing is that we can still pull off one or all of these easy last-minute New Year’s Eve ideas I’ve compiled in this post.
Just because you might not be able to get together with many people doesn’t mean we can’t decorate for New Year’s Eve.
Last-Minute New Year’s Eve Party Ideas
Do you have guests coming to celebrate New Year’s Eve with you?
These treats and decorating ideas will impress your family, friends, and/or co-workers!
Champagne Ice Cubes
Add champagne ice cubes to orange juice for a little twist! Just simply make ice cubes with champagne instead of water.
New Year’s Eve Spritzer
Make this yummy, refreshing drink with beer for the adults and without beer for kids.
Stuffed Brie Wrapped in Puff Pastry
I made this just recently. Add marmalade to the top of a Brie cheese and then wrap it in puff pastry and bake it. You could also add nuts or chutney — get creative depending on wanting to make it sweet or savory.
Just grab all the clocks you have in your home and assemble them in one spot. You could add them as a centerpiece to your table or line them up on your mantel.
New Year’s Eve Clock Free Printable
You can find free New Year’s Eve-themed printables on the Internet and decorate with them. You could add them to every plate or frame them. If you have children in your party, print out a few for them to color or cut out shapes to keep them happy and busy.
Golden or Silver New Year’s Eve Table Setting
Simply decorate your home and table setting with silver or gold items — anything that you have that looks classy or sparkles.
In the past, I’ve use my silver candelabra, silver candle holders, silver tea/coffee pots, and my DIY mercury glass bowl — which you can make in minutes, by the way.
Just add silver ball ornaments on a plate and a candle, and you’ve got a centerpiece.
I made this New Year’s Eve centerpiece a few years ago:
I hope you’ll enjoy making one of these last-minute New Year’s Eve party ideas.
Happy New Year to you!
BTW, in Germany, where I grew up, we call New Year’s Eve Sylvester. Here you can read about more traditions like Bleigiessen and gifting marzipan pigs.
