5 Ways to Make Your NYE Party a Modern Affair

Gold is a classic color for New Year's Eve party decor, but this year, give it some modern flair. Geometric patterns, tiaras, champagne towers—there’s so many ways to make your new year shine! Here are five ways to make your NYE party a thoroughly modern masterpiece!

Tip 1: Let style make the noise

We don’t have to tell you to go ahead and make some noise. Every NYE party has horns and blow-out noise makers, and for a modern take, opt for noisemakers with a pretty metallic sheen or in unique shapes like a slide drum or star-shaped clappers. 

Tip 2: Use cardboard to make a tower

OK, a champagne flute tower has been done before, but still, they’re fun to have for a New Year’s party. You don’t need to balance the flutes on each other—a layer of cardboard will do the trick. Add a sign to let partygoers know that they should select the one at the top. Whether you make it a three-tier or a five-tier tower, this drink arrangement will have them cheering the new year.

Tip 3: Opt for wearables that sport a modern print

Go modern with NYE hats and tiaras that are more cute than cheesy. Geometric patterns and hashtag sayings instantly make wearables next level.

Tip 4: Use gold as a pop of color

If you’re not careful, gold can easily appear gaudy. So when decorating your table, stick with a clean pattern like a black and white setting and use gold as a pop of color. keep things classy with understated accents like a glass of champagne, a single gold serving plate or a couple of gold noisemakers.

Tip 5: DIY a simple photo booth setup

Let fancy outfits steal the spotlight by creating a simple photo backdrop. Brighten any space with paper fans and fringe garland, then add festive wearables (crowns and party hats are perfect!), photo booth props and noisemakers in vases or on the table.
