10 Simple New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

Still looking for ways to get your party on this next week? I am. I’ve decided that sitting in bed for a whole month doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have a zinger of a New Year’s and I have been on the hunt for great ideas.

I’ve found so many great simple New Year’s Eve Party ideas, I thought I would go ahead and share a few of them with you!

These projects are so simple that you still have time to pull all of them together before next week and really make your event shine!

  1. These are too cute, we don’t really have traditions beyond fireworks and noshing all night on goodies. Maybe we should start some!

    • Sara, I don’t know that we have any very strict traditions. I do a little decorating, but with three boys no one really cares! I do put a lot of time into party hats, horns and appetizers though. They are still into that kind of stuff. Hope you’re having a great holiday. xoxo, Tauni
