Happy New Year Readers!
We welcomed 2017 in a splendid way by hosting a New Year’s Eve party and it was so much fun and memorable..:-)
I wanted to try something different that’s going to stand out and..Yayyyy! it worked.
Yes, it is the fun photo session with some New Year props and party backdrop. I can’t wait to share how easy it is to set up something like this on budget 🙂
Photo Backdrop & Props -$10
Supplies you need are :
Plastic Table cover – Dollar Tree
Black and Gold Ballons – Dollar tree
Masking Tape – already on hand
2017 Photo Props – Ebay.com
New years Hat and Tiara – Walmart
Gold bead garlands – Dollar Tree
All you do is tape down the table cover on to the wall and add some helium balloons. Keep the photo props ready and let the guests take over…;-)
We also played some games and here is a fun game to pass time until midnight 🙂
New Year’s Eve Game – Inspired from Pinterest
You have to create some cards and let the players pick one each and share their story 🙂
Fill the cards with something like BEST GIFT OF THE YEAR, MOST MEMORABLE VACATION OF THE YEAR etc and it is fun to think about all good things happened in 2016 ❤
To make it little interesting I placed them in a paper fortune cookie 🙂 Make circles from cardstock and fold them and glue the tips. If needed use some clips until the glue is dry.
And when it is time to ring in the New Year a sweet treat is a must 😉
Here is my countdown cake that is really quick and easy to make. It has 2 layers of chocolate cake with a vanilla caramel ice cream sandwiched and frosted with some icing.
The clock topping is edible sugar sheets and letters. To match black and gold theme, I used a metallic sugar sheet cut into circle and glued the edible sugar letters on to the sheet with sugar water 🙂
We enjoyed the ice cream cake and ended the night with some fireworks 🙂
Hope you all had fun welcoming the new year and wish you all again a happy and peaceful 2017.
