Throwing the party of the year can be quite intimidating. We’ve been there, we get it. All your New Year’s Eve guests will be depending on you and your amazing party-throwing skills to end the year with a bang. It’s too bad you’ve already used your best recipes, decorations and tableware during the holidays. Or is it? We’ve rounded up five fresh ideas that will ensure you and your loved ones ring in the new year in style.


Fizzy Drinks

The night will be filled with a large intake of fizzy drinks, so you might as well make them the center of attention. Sure, a couple bottles of bubbly are a must on New Year’s Eve, but what about the cocktails? Show off your classy side (and totally wow your guests) with an iSi Sodamaker! Want a Blue Gin Tea Tonic? You got it. How about Belvedere Vodka’s Chery Spritz? Coming right up, dear. The Sodamaker Classic is easy to use, fast and elegant. Add a bottle of Belvedere Vodka and you’ll have everything you need for an upscale drinking experience.


Stylish Tableware

Now, where to serve all these delicious “pick-me-ups”? We’ve got one idea: Sempli Champagne Flutes from The Grommet! The glasses are crafted to enhance the effervescence of carbonated beverages as they are not to be stirred or swirled. So, say goodbye to the traditional, may we say, flimsy stems – these flat bottom cups will also ensure that nothing gets spilled throughout the night (even if the party does get a little rowdy).


Warm Food

Drinks? Check. Glassware? Check. Food? Mhmm… that’s a tricky one. You need food that will not only satisfy your guests, but won’t have you running back and forth from the kitchen. You should get a chance to enjoy the New Year’s Eve party as much as the next guy! So, sit back and relax while Hamilton Beach’s Slow Cooker does the cooking for you. The eight-quart slow cooker is ideal for a big crowd – it can hold six pounds of roast or eight pounds of chicken. (That’s a lot of food!) It also features a “keep warm” setting, so your yummy meal will stay at the right temperature throughout the night and into the new year.


Sparkly Decorations

Top the whole party off with some shiny NYE decorations! Nothing says “2018” like the Copper String Lights from Kikkerland. They are sparkly, copper (which is SO in right now), and battery powered – so you can place them anywhere you’d like. Get creative by incorporating them into your centerpiece, adding them as “glitter” to your bar or stringing them throughout your home. When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the more sparkly stuff – the better.
