2021 New Year's Eve Decorations & Party Supplies for the Big Bash
How do you plan to celebrate the New Year? With a big New Year's Eve party, a small party, or something in between? Whether you're hosting a small get-together with just a few family members or a blowout bash for the entire block, our New Year's Eve decorations and party supplies can get you pointed in the right direction and simplify the party planning.
Even a small NYE gathering of family members and close friends can be a time-consuming undertaking. A successful New Year's Eve party requires more than just food and drinks. You'll need at least a few decorations – a Happy New Year banner, balloons, and a table centerpiece at minimum – as well as noisemakers to welcome the new year. You'll probably want to hand out favors like novelty eyeglasses, beads, and head boppers to ratchet up the party spirit. You'll also want to set the table in a way that befits the occasion.
Decorating kits and tableware themes make the planning a snap. Purchased as a kit, New Year's decorations for the table, windows, and wall will automatically match, ensuring a cohesive look. Optional favor kits are available in color schemes and patterns to match the tableware and decorations you set out.
Essential NYE Party Supplies
New Year's Eve Party Kits: More accurately, NYE "party" kits are favor kits for anywhere from 10 to 300+ guests. They typically contain noisemakers like squawkers, blowouts, and horns, as well as wearables like leis, beads, top hats, and Happy New Year headbands. Each kit offers a different assortment, so be sure to pick the kit that's right for you!
New Year's Eve Decorating Kits: These run the gamut from basic sets of matching hanging decor to complete table decorating packages with centerpiece, banner, cutout decorations, balloons, and hanging swirls. Here again, each kit is different. You can go for something inexpensive and simple or you can go all out!
New Year's Eve Decorations: Not every NYE decoration comes in a kit. You'll find plenty of standalone decorations to enhance your party space, including backdrops for photo booths, cutout champagne bottles, banners, centerpieces, and door decorations.
New Year's Eve Balloons: What better way to greet the new year than with "2021" spelled out with giant gold letter balloons? Or build a quick and easy DIY centerpiece decoration with nothing more than a foil Happy New Year balloon framed by gold and black latex balloons.
New Year's Eve Tableware Themes: Each tableware design is carefully matched with Happy New Year banners, dangling swirl and cutout decorations, balloons, blowouts and noise makers, and even costume accessories to build out the theme as much as you like.
Champagne Flutes & Glasses: Reusable plastic champagne flutes, wine glasses, and cocktail glasses look almost identical to more expensive glass vessels. But unlike glass, plastic New Year's Eve stemware is shatter resistant and stackable. Dropped stemware poses no danger, and unused stemware can be stored in compact spaces.
Noise Makers, Horns & Blowouts: Party horns, rattles, clappers, and clackers – these are just a few of the noisemakers you can purchase by the piece or in a money-saving party kit. Make a mighty noise in unison at the stroke of midnight! Just in case any guests have dozed off, you wouldn't want them to miss the moment.
Confetti Poppers & Cannons: Confetti poppers and cannons mark the high point of the party – usually the stroke of midnight in the case of a New Year's Eve bash. These popular noise makers add an element of fun when they go off with a bang and spray paper confetti or foil swirl decorations several feet across the room.
If you're still not sure how to put the NYE gathering together, you'll find plenty of tips and tricks under the Party Ideas section of the Party City web site.
6 Easy New Year's Eve Decorating Ideas
Idea 1. Build a champagne glass tower: Out with the old, in with the bubbly! A champagne tasting party is an elegantly fun way to welcome the new year – and nothing says "party" like a fabulous champagne tower.
Idea 2. Make a bubbly NYE party backdrop: Create an effervescent atmosphere at your NYE party with a wall of balloons that look like giant champagne bubbles. Inflate clear, pink and gold balloons in different sizes and tape them to the wall. A bubbly cake and glitter-dipped glasses make the party table even more cheers-worthy.
Idea 3. Pair a shiny spray NYE centerpiece with a glitzy mask: You'll need are beads to fill a candy container, a spray New Year's Eve centerpiece, and a masquerade mask of your choice. Put the centerpiece decoration on a table scattered with wearables, and your guests can party in style well past midnight!
Idea 4. Ring in the new year with an eye-catching glitzy number balloon display: Glitzy gold number balloons make a big impact when arranged to spell out the year. Mix in your favorite metallic and latex black, gold and silver balloons, fill with them helium, and tie them down at varying heights.
Idea 5: Metallic New Year's cutouts set the party scene: A hanging champagne coupe decoration will set the stage for a night of partying. Surround it with your favorite metallic fans, hanging metallic fringe, silvery paper lanterns, and thematic New Year's Eve cutout decorations. A backdrop of black floral sheeting is a must-have added touch.
Idea 6: Transform ice buckets into elegant centerpieces: Make a swanky centerpiece with a bottle of sparkling wine, a New Year's tiara and some beads arranged in a silver-look ice bucket. Drape the beads from the neck of the bottle for a posh touch and serve the blanc de blancs in gold flutes to make guests feel like VIPs.
