Trendy Decorating Ideas for Your New Year’s Eve Party

Ring in the new year in ultimate style with these trend-forward decorating ideas.  



If neon brings back pleasant memories of college days past, you might enjoy this retro-trend. (To boot, it’s not as difficult to pull off as you might think!) Switch out your existing lights for black light bulbs, and enforce a dress code of glow-approved garments, such as all-white. Don’t forget to stock up on glow sticks! 


Black, White, and Gold 

Hoping for something a little more elegant than black lights and glow sticks? This classic black, white, and gold color scheme is the epitome of glam, and will give guests the opportunity to dress up and ring in the new year in ultimate refinement. 


Typography Decor 

Think: letter balloons, block letters and phrases for your photo booth, 2018 signage, and ‘Happy New Years’ wall art. For more typography inspiration, check out our article, Trend Watch: Typography.  



If you want your party’s focus to be less on dancing and more on good food and good company, consider appealing to the foodies in your gang via an assortment of gourmet dishes and meticulously curated drinks. Enlist the help of your friends to cook or have your party catered by a crowd-pleasing third party. 



Not a big fan of the clichéd countdown to midnight? Why not shift your festivities a bit and celebrate via a New Year’s Day brunch. Host one at home or make a reservation well in advance at a reputable brunch spot.  


Anything in Ultra Violet 

Pantone has named their color of the year just in time for the new year and we recommend employing the unexpected hue at least once for good measure within your New Year’s Eve decorating scheme. Ultra Violet is associated with so many good things, including originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking, so why not ring in the new year with the positivity-packed color?
