1. FALLING STAR DECORATIONS

New year is a glamorous affair and nothing screams glamour and luxury better than elegant table decorations. Go all in with this New year party idea and create a hovering cloud of balloons. We filled the balloons with helium but you could of course simply stick them to the ceiling.

Tie some paper stars to the balloons so they hang gracefully over the table like falling stars.

Keep the colour scheme simple with white and opaque balloons filled with confetti, add a touch of gold or bronze to keep an elegant but glamorous party feeling.

New year party ideas - decorate the table with balloons and hanging stars in a simple colour scheme of white and gold.

A simple colour scheme of bronze and rose gold gives this new year celebration a touch of glamour.

2. AN ELEGANT WHITE TABLE SETTING

A simple and elegant white table setting with a hint of gold is perfect for the New year table. Simple white porcelain paired with delicate fluted glasses is a timeless aesthetic and works with any number of interior styles.

Keep the details simple and pick out the fluted pattern in other elements, such as the cutlery, candle holders and the centerpiece for an overall and uniform look.

Think about all of the elements in your New Year table setting very carefully for an overall, uniform aesthetic.

3. NAME TAGS & NAPKIN FOLDING

Personal name tags and neatly folded napkins put the finishing touches on any table setting. Here we have combined the Ripple champagne glasses with Bernadotte place card holder from Georg Jensen and the fluted element on each match the other perfectly.

For more new year party ideas and tutorials on how to fold napkins check out our handy guide here.

4. A GRAND CENTREPIECE

If you wish to really wow your guests invest in a beautiful vase and an equally beautiful bouquet of flowers this New year.

For this New year party idea we have kept the colour tones simple with dark greens and grasses rather than lots of colourful flowers. Who says you can't have cut flowers in the middle of winter?

5. OPULENT OYSTERS

These New year party ideas are all about luxury and that includes the food. Welcome your guess with a plate of fresh oysters to tickle their taste buds.

Now of course, we understand than not everyone enjoys fresh oysters so if you are looking for other ideas for your new year menu then look no further. We have five delicious canape recipes for you here.

6. WELCOME DRINKS

Invite your guests in from the cold with a tasty welcome drink. Whether you offer a glass of champagne with a touch of festive sparkle or a delicious homemade cocktail is up to you.

If you are looking for inspiration we have 5 recipes that are sure to delight here.

7. NEW YEAR PARTY GAMES

In Sweden it is traditional to play bingo in the lead up to the New Year countdown. Why not take a leaf out of our Nordic neighbour’s book and create your own game of bingo to be played throughout the night?

This game requires nothing more than your imagination, a few sheets of paper and perhaps a small gift to give to the winner!

8. A RESOLUTION BIN

New year wouldn’t be new year if we didn’t make a resolution that we have no intention of keeping!

We love this new year party idea – put out some paper and pens and a handy little box and have each of your guests write down a resolution. You could even turn it into a game and pick resolutions for each other.

9. CREATE YOUR OWN PHOTOBOOTH

This popular party idea works well for any occasion. Create a sign for the photobooth from a pinboard, we used the Design Letters board and matching letters. Fill a jar with your photobooth props, hang up some glittery bunting and voila – you have your very own photo-booth!

10. BUILD A MAGNIFICENT CHAMPAGNE TOWER

This classic New year party idea positively shouts luxury. Build a champagne tower as small or as large as you like, pour over a bottle of sparkling wine and enjoy.

Place the tower with the oysters and canapes so your guests can take something to nibble along side the wine.

Learn how to build a champagne tower in our handy guide.

Wide, shallow couple glasses are the best for building a champagne tower.

11. A SUMPTUOUS CHOCOLATE DESSERT

A last but by no means least you will need something to round off your New year celebration. What better way than to treat your guests to something creamy and sweet? Of course, no New year party would be complete without a dessert. This rich chocolate cheesecake in a glass from Swedish baking sensation Baka med Frida is a truly decadent dessert worthy of any New year celebration.
