Nothing is funner than gathering your friends together to ring in the new year! Here my ideas for a New Year's Eve Gathering!
Serve a potluck - spending all your time cooking will spoil the fun, plus it gives your friends an opportunity to shine!
Make a signature cocktail, with a fun themed name - I made Amber's French Kiss
Make your place sparkle - I glittered a bottle of champagne, and put up string lights. I also added a few large bottles with Christmas lights shoved inside to bookshelves and cabinets. I used shiney gold gift wrapping paper to decorate table tops and the bar too.
Play great music - I used Google Play Music's radio NYE station and had great music I didn't have to worry about!
Midnight Kisses and Noise Makers
I used random crystal bowls and tin buckets to display snacks and food. I found small chalkboard signs attached to paper clips at Micheal's and used them on the bowls.

|Me, the bartender!|
I decorated the bar with gold and white chevron wrapping paper, and small jeweled blinking lights scattered around the wine and champagne glasses. I made the large BAR light up sign for another party and decided to put it to use in my bar! It is basically made of red construction paper, target lights with a foam board backing (Instructions I used HERE)
