Happy New Year!
After all of the holiday shopping, all of the cooking, the cleaning, the hosting, the decorating, the winter sports and activities… there is nothing we crave more than… well, let’s be honest here. There’s nothing we crave more than a new year!
A new year signifies a fresh start, slower living, a time for resolutions, health and quiet time. And, of course, a well-deserved break after another successful December. The last holiday party before January 1st is a meaningful one. Popping champagne, dressing yourself up in sparkles, and extending a ‘cheers’ to the ones you love most, is the perfect way to say ‘see you later’ to the hectic Christmas rush. It’s also the perfect way to say ‘hello’, to the promise of a brand new year!
I’ve put together my ideal New Year’s Eve party in this blog post, thanks to my friends at Weddingstar. Weddingstar has everything you need to celebrate all of life’s joys, big or small, and always at a convenient price point you can afford. Based in Alberta, Canada, this wedding, gift and favour company is consistently bringing in the trendy new items we crave, with the traditional products we have loved for decades. With free shipping over $125 across North America, take a long peruse around the site for all of your home decor needs!
Read on, for everything you need to ring in the new year in style!
A blush, black, and gold theme is a feminine twist on the classic style of a new year’s eve party. With hexagonal party-ware, touches of marble and gold foil, this theme is chic, warm, and stylish – and bang-on trend.
A local bubbly is a must, and we have selected Mission Hill Estate Winery’s Reserve Brut for our celebrations. This bubbly has sold out for the season, so be sure to stock up on your sparkling wines and champagnes in advance for the 31st! Visit your local wine shop and select a few local bubblies to serve.
Always a fun way to ring in a new year, try out a few confetti poppers! Weddingstar has 3 styles of confetti poppers, and you can purchase them blank or with a personalized label specifically for your celebration.
Choose from pink, white and beige tissue poppers, black, white and beige tissue poppers, or gold and silver metallic poppers.
*Take care to vacuum and dispose of your confetti responsibly, and not flush confetti down any household drains. Use your confetti poppers indoors only for easy cleanup!

If you’re serving snacks or appetizers at your party, you’ll want something for guests to serve themselves on. Weddingstar’s beautiful gold & blush and black marble plates are an excellent choice, especially when paired with the following coasters…
The hexagonal marble coasters are so cool, you’ll want to keep them out after the party – we support it!
Table decor is important, of course – but so is wall decor, when it comes to creating party-worthy ambience. Balloons, streamers, and banners are a great place to start. When stowed away gently, many of these products can be re-used for other events, and for many years to come.

Have these mylar balloons filled at your local party store, and after they’ve deflated, fold and store them away for a few more uses!
The ‘cheers’ balloon banner is air-fill only, and can be taped or hung up on the wall for an even easier decoration!
If you’re hosting a larger party, why not create a photo-op area for guests to have fun with? It doesn’t have to be difficult, with a shiny sequinned or foil fringed backdrop, some photo props, and a white and gold letter board.

For the ultimate throwback guests will love, set out a few disposable cameras. When you get them developed, request digital copies to share online!
Pro-tip: spell out ‘Happy New Year 2022’ on the letter board for a prop guests can hold up for their close-up.
Ambient lighting is always a good idea. Weave these options around the snack table, or string up on the photo booth wall.

Weddngstar’s wooden countdown calendar is the cutest table decor, and not only sets the theme of the party, but that of the following day, to welcome a brand new year.
The magic of the holiday season never ends, when the greatest gift is family and friends! And with that, we wish you the happiest new year, and all of the blessings 2023 has to offer.
Cheers, to a new year!
