[endimages]New Years Eve is just around the corner! Whether you’re hosting an intimate dinner or an extravagant party, it’s important to keep your guests entertained throughout the night. Spruce up your New Years Eve party with these fun accessories, games and tips.


People love to get dressed up on NYE, making it the perfect night to provide plenty of photo ops. 

The best way to ensure that the night will be filled with great photos is to make your own photo booth! It’s simple – find a festive, shimmering backdrop, like these metallic fringe curtains to set the scene.

Whether you have a photo booth set up or not, provide fun New Years themed photo props for your guests to pose with. I love these sparkly props from Etsy because they allow your guests to look silly and glamorous at the same time.


Keep the party going with an entertaining, New Years Eve themed party game.

Go classic with a game of Bingo! Use a template or make your own with NYE words and phrases. You can even personalize the game using words and phrases associated with guests for an extra good laugh.

Bring out your inner child with a silly, flirty “kiss” game. Start by handing each female guest 5-7 Hershey’s Kisses at the beginning of the party. Tell all the guests that throughout the night the male guests should try to get as many “kisses” as they can. At the end of the night, the male guest with the most “kisses’ wins a fabulous (or silly) prize. 


Put your party decorations to good use with interactive elements that guests can use throughout the night. 


I love decorating for a party with festive balloons, especially when they come in handy. You can put something inside of each balloon before they are blown up, then tie a balloon to each chair. Ask your guests to pop their balloon later in the night to find a surprise inside! You can put one “winning” ticket inside a balloon for the prize of the night (make it a good prize!) Or, it can be a number for a gift exchange, a question about the New Year or even a fun party dare – find your own flare based on your crowd!

For cocktail or dinner parties, set the table with conversation-worthy decor. I absolutely love serving drinks on these hilarious face coasters – they are sure to keep everyone entertained and laughing.
