DIY New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

New Year's Eve Party Ideas
1. This family friendly take on a Pop, Fizz, Clink party
involves lots of yummy candied popcorn (or popcorn of any kind!) and fun old fashioned sodas. Have you ever made your own caramel popcorn? This would be a super fun activity for this party too! Here is a favorite recipe for caramel popcorn. Your local BevMo, Grocery Store or convenience store will carry a great assortment of sodas.

2. Another fun family friendly idea for a New Year’s Eve Party? A brunch party! Donuts, colorful cereals and fruit make for easy and fun party food and you can party the night away without needing to feel like a caterer. I LOVE these acrylic donut/bagel stands. Grab some paper fans , honeycomb balls, felted garlands and glitter star garlands to decorate with and you’re all set!
