This one may be the easiest of them all. You’re having Champagne anyway – why not theme your night around it? Pop open a couple of bottles of your favorite bubbly, place ice buckets and glasses in convenient locations, and your party’s done. (Add matching cupcakes if you’re really ambitions.)

Father Time

The whole purpose of New Year’s is to commemorate the passing of time and the new year approaching. Include some timey-wimey stuff (Whovians, this one’s for you) to celebrate the essence of the day.

Ball Drop

It’s the night’s biggest moment – celebrate it for the entire party with a ball drop theme. Make sure to include everything that happens when the ball drops: noisemakers, confetti, overall chaos. Colorful, simple, and perfect for all ages.

Happy New Year!
