Planning a New Year’s Eve party is a fun way for kids to wrap up the holidays before they head back to school. Teenagers may want to have a regular party, but a slumber party is still a popular choice for the younger kids who want to stay up past midnight to welcome in the new year. Putting together a party after a holiday season that may have blown your budget doesn’t have to be an expensive event. Picking up New Year’s Eve party supplies from the discount store can help minimize the expense without taking the fun out of it. Here are some decoration essentials for a kid-friendly New Year’s Eve Party.
Black and White
Black and white decorations are the traditional colors of New Year’s Eve. Dressing up a main room with streamers and balloons makes it more festive. Latex and foil balloons filled with helium or air add excitement to the atmosphere. Use curling ribbon for tails on helium balloons. Tying a bunch on the mailbox is an easy way for parents to find the right house. When using them on a table full of refreshments, balloon weights can create some sparkle. Hang black and white streamers together, twisting as you go, or alternate colors as you run them across the ceiling. Crisscrossing in diagonals is another option.
Party Hats and Blowouts
It isn’t a New Year’s Eve celebration without party blowouts and hats. If you’re concerned about the noise level throughout the evening, wait until just before midnight to bring them out. These make a fun surprise to add to the excitement, and if your guests are watching TV, they can join right in with the noise-making party-goers in Times Square.
Using a black light will add some interesting effects on the contrast of black and white throughout the room. Exchanging a few of your lamp bulbs for black lights is a quick fix to change the atmosphere and pump up the fun.
