Festive parties are being planned right now as I type. Parties for 10, 25, or 100 guests will be invited to these fabulous celebrations. Whether you are planning an adult party, child party or mix party, there are many ideas and themes to choose from…
Black, silver and gold are popular colors for parties. Party City has many of these items on hand and ready to purchase. Black, silver and gold give any party that extravagant feeling. Children like playing grown up and will enjoy an elegant party using these colors.
Bright colors open the door for many interesting accessories. Bright colors are inviting and make any party festive. Don’t be afraid to use these colors for an all adult party. Adults like the cheerful atmosphere of the bright colors just like children. New to party themes is a black light party or glow in the dark theme. Adults and children love the glowing accessories!
Black light parties will require more planning but will be well worth the effort. You will need to make sure you not only have glow sticks but also black lights hung in different locations of your venue. Plates, cups, necklaces, and other accessories are made to glow under the black lights.
The theme of clocks or time is popular for New Years. Time is ticking away and the New Year is beginning. This is a theme that is best with an adult gathering. Most of the accessories will be in black, silver or gold. The two themes can be combined for more of a variety of decorations.
Don’t Be Limited
Don’t limit yourself to packaged ready to go party themes. Birthday parties have numerous themes you can turn into a New Year’s Eve party. Be different and add fun to your gatherings.
Casino New Years can be mixed with any of the prepackaged New Year’s products. Games and fun are had by both adults and children. Hire some friends to be the game table dealers. Have a box of trinkets people can choose from when they cash in their chips at midnight. A Casino party will require more work and planning so start early. Items can be purchased online or through a party supply store like Party City.
Beach theme or luau theme are a nice break to the cold temperatures. Think outside the box and have a theme nobody will be expecting. The bright color accessories that say Happy New Year go great with the bright colors of the beach and luau themes. Children and adults will get into this party theme for a great time.
Hollywood or movie premiere are great themes. Black, silver and gold existing New Year’s accessories accompany this them greatly! Ring in the New Year celebrity style. Guest will enjoy a celebrity photo booth and taster appetizers like a movie star at a movie premiere.
Decade parties are fun no matter your age. Combine 50s, 70s and 80s all in one party to ring in 2017! The New Year’s bright collection can be combined with many of these decorating options. You can still have something that says “Happy New Year” in addition to your decade items.
A Rockin’ Eve party can be combined with the 50s theme. Any of the New Year’s accessories go along well with the decade or rockin’ eve themes. Winter snow themes are sophisticated and go great with the black, silver and gold New Year’s accessories. The delicate decorations make you feel like you are in a winter wonderland. Add lighted snowflakes for a final touch of class.
Bubbles add a fun factor to any gathering. A bubble machine is an easy way to liven up any party. Careful if you have your bubble machine blowing over a tiled area as it will become slippery. Make sure you have rugs in the area to absorb some of the bubbles as they pop. Everyone likes bubbles so make sure you have a bubble machine or some bottles of bubbles.
Hats are always popular at any gathering and people of all ages enjoy hats. Cone hats are easy. Fashion hats, top hats tiaras and headbands are other options for you to choose from. Mix it up and have a variety available for your guests.Photo Booth
Photo booths are trendy and everyone wants one at their event! Pictures are a fun and easy way for people to interact. Take the pictures digitally or have an instant camera for people to receive their photo. Adults and children like interacting with the photo booth. A photo frame to hold the picture is a great New Year’s party gift for all to remember the great time had at the party.
Mini tasting foods are easy and allow for people to sample everything without wasting food. Select three or four items to make and serve them in the mini tasting containers. Children and adults like mini dishes. Small appetizers, deserts, or small portions of a meat on small serving dishes are easy to carry and allows you to mingle as well. Save big plates for another party and try mini containers for serving your food.
