Top Tip No.1: Get yourself the Mother of all drinks trolleys!
This New Years Eve why not invest in a showstopping piece that will last you years and years? A decadent drinks trolley and a bold champagne bucket are just the items!
We love Drinks Trolleys because all the beauty has been crafted for you and easily delivered to your door. What's not to love?! Dedicate an area at your party to create your drinks trolley style spot - you want the space to sing and not be hidden away. Go as big or small as you like and let it take centre stage!
A Gold Champagne Bucket is useful for obvious (useful/beautiful) reasons and will keep your champagne chilled until midnight! Stock up on a few champagne buckets and scatter them around the party, ensuring that no glass goes unfilled!

Top Tip No.2: Vessels and Glassware - Only The Best Will Do
Glassware, paper plates and cups ... a New Years Party Essential! On the night you want to create minimal stress and maximum fun! Our glitzy party paper plates and cups will make your hosting dreams! No need to worry about breakages and washing up - done deal!
For a little sophistication mix the party paper plates and cups with pretty etched wine goblets and transform your room into New Years Eve Glamour!
Top Tip No.3: Dazzling Decorations
Delight your partygoers with dazzling light chains, honeycomb balls and garlands! When decorating your home for Christmas think of exuberant decorations that will fully immerse your guests in the New Years Eve experience. Hang garlands from the ceilings, scatter confetti on tables and weave faux ivy through chairs... the more glitzy the party the better it will be!
Psst... don't forget:
"The smells are just as important as the sounds and sights - think natural, seasonal aromas. If you’ve got one, make sure your fire is roaring, and a real Christmas tree is always a winner. A big basket of blankets near the door, and deluxe sheepskins like this one draped on outdoor seating makes outside feel cosy and warm, too.'"

Top Tip No.4: Drinking Games - easy entertainment
Is a party really a party without drinking games?! If your guest list is large make sure you're stocked up with plenty of games, so your guests can mingle and play in smaller groups together. It also takes the pressure off entertaining, allowing you more time to relax and enjoy your party.
If you're only hosting for close family and friends, go for one interactive game that caters for multiple players. It will create a more intimate and joyful atmosphere. No matter the size of your guest list, party games are the ultimate way to set the night off on the right foot!
Top Tip No.5: Confetti Canons - for when the clock strikes 12!
For the final countdown go big! Booze is very important, so make sure you keep some bottles of fizzy aside and fill your guests' glasses just before midnight.
Then, for when the clock strikes 12 arm your guests with confetti, confetti canons and party hats and make the big leap into 2017 a momentous one!
Psst... Make sure you keep your phone or camera on you. The confetti rocket scene at midnight will be totally Instagram-able!
