I cannot believe that 2013 is coming to an end. It’s been an amazing year for me both personally and professionally. There is a part of me that wants to stay and relish in all the greatness of 2013, but it’s time to look ahead to even more exciting things to come in 2014. We’ll probably be sharing some highlights from the year on the blog in a few days. Laura and I have been taking a much needed break this past week, but I wanted to write this quick post to share some festive New Year’s Eve party ideas.
New Year’s Bubbly Gift Tag
The last few years my family has been staying home to ring in the new year, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot of fun. If you’re visiting with friends or going to a party, a bottle of champagne or wine is the perfect hostess gift.
I made a simple printable that can be tied onto a bottle of bubbly for make a festive gift. The tag is in the classic New Year’s Eve colors of silver and gold, with the fun saying “wishing you a sparkling new year” which is perfectly appropriate for a bottle of champagne or sparkling beverage.
There are 4 tags to a sheet. To get the tags, simply right click save the image to your computer and print on card stock paper to fit the page. Tie the tag onto a bottle of bubbly with a pretty ribbon, for an instant gift. (For your personal use only. If you would like to share, please link to this blog post.)
New Year’s Eve Party Hats
For some more sparkle, you might also want to make these festive New Year’s Party Hats that we made for our party last year.
Sprinkle Dipped Champagne Glasses
I always have a ton of sprinkles, in every shape and color. It’s one of those things I admittedly have a bit of an addiction to, along with washi tape. To add a festive touch to your glasses on New Year’s Eve, dip the rim of the glass in some water and then dip the wet rim into a shallow dish of sprinkles.
I just love these sprinkle dipped champagne glasses. This also a great use of your leftover Christmas sprinkles. Just mix and match with whatever sprinkles you have.
Homemade Fortune Cookies
Are you planning any New Year’s Eve snacks? You might enjoy these homemade fortune cookies that we made last year. It was so much fun personalizing the fortunes that went inside.
Paper Fortune Cookies
Get the kids involved in some New Year’s fun with these paper fortune cookies that we made last year. They were fun for the whole family!
I hope this gave you some ideas to have your own festive New Year’s Eve party this year!

These are such fantastic ideas! I love the homemade fortune cookies! I have got to make those for my daughter’s birthday party.
These are all beautiful ideas. My husband’s birthday is New Year’s Eve maybe I will use some of these for inspiration for a fun family party.

I totally want to make homemade fortune cookies! What a fun creative way to kick off the new year.
Ah those champagne glasses with the festive sugar look so luxe!
Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
The printables are so pretty! Actually it looks like New Year’s Eve was far more entertaining at your house than mine. I watched a movie and was in bed before 11 pm (although that’s the way I like it). I actually kinda hate NYE. lol
