8 Family-Friendly New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

1It is already getting to be time to think about ringing in the new year. The big question is, what do you do to make your New Year’s Eve party memorable and exciting? Don’t throw another typical New Year’s celebration, try something fresh and unique for a family-friendly gathering that kids and adults alike will treasure.

 

Ring in the New Year Early

Kids want to join in the fun and festivities on New Year’s Eve. Avoid sleepy and cranky little ones by ringing in the new year early! Instead of waiting for midnight, try celebrating just after dinner. Let the kids join in while you use hand-held confetti launchers and drink sparkling grape juice! Depending on their ages, you may even get away with setting the clocks back a few hours so the kids think they’re staying up late (we won’t tell!).

 

Pajama Party

No matter what your age, a pajama party is always cool! There’s no need to “dress to impress” … Let everyone ring in the new year in comfort. Bonus points: now the family is ready to fall asleep whenever they need to! Animal print, sports-themes or footie pajamas are just a few options. The kids will certainly get a kick out of seeing mom and dad in PJs! Pop some popcorn, spread out lots of blankets and pillows, and gather around the TV to watch the festivities.

 

New Year Resolutions 

Get the whole family to work on a fun project highlighting the best moments of the past year. Talk about goals that you can tackle together in the new year. Then have everyone reveal what they’re looking forward to and what they’d like to change. It’s a great way to bond with the entire family. See how many of you have the same hopes and dreams for the next year!

 

NYE Themed Bingo

Let the family come together with arts and crafts! Make some colorful bingo cards with squares that feature a combination of words (year, ball, celebration, happy) and pictures (NYC, ball, hat). Give the kids candies to use as markers and tell them that each time they hear a word or see a picture on TV that matches one of their squares, they get to place a candy on the square. The winner gets a FETTI frenzy of confetti while everyone enjoys their sweet treats!

 

Scavenger Hunt

Make a scavenger hunt with New Year themed objects such as noisemakers, confetti sticks, silly themed hats and glasses, and so on. Let everyone find the objects and then everyone will be ready for the new year! Bonus Tip: You can even use some of the scavenger hunt accessories for our next idea (Photo Booth fun)!

 

Photo Booth

It’s time to get those 2017 glasses and funky accessories! A photo booth is an excellent way to laugh and play with the entire family. Don some fun accessories and show your spirit for the new year. Using an instant camera, take a bunch of fun pics and ask everyone to label the pictures with words and memories from the past year or with their new year’s resolutions. Don’t forget to keep some photos out for the next project (Family Time Capsule).

 

Family Time Capsule

Work together as a family to create something you’ll come back and open at a later date! Have everyone write down their favorite memories and moments and write a letter to your future selves. Little ones can illustrate pictures or have you write out their memories. Place in something like a waterproof box or even several mason jars (one for each family member). If the weather permits, take the capsule(s) outside and bury them in a special spot for a future unveiling.

 

flutter_fetti_confetti_stickConfetti and Streamers

Last but not least, don’t forget confetti and streamers for your New Year’s Eve party! No matter what you do, confetti and streamers are FUN for the entire family! With Flutter FETTI, the clean-up is quick and easy. If your local fireworks are going off too late for bedtime, you can create the same effect outside with the Flutter FETTI 14″ FireCracklers Confetti Snappers. Or, if the weather is not ideal, choose some hand-held metallic streamer launchers in silver and gold. This makes for a fun filled night with super easy cleanup for bed.

Whether you choose one or ALL of these ideas, your family will never forget the time you spent enjoying New Year’s Eve together. Flutter FETTI loves partnering with families to make all celebrations a blast! If you need help choosing the best products for little ones to enjoy, don’t hesitate to contact our expert Confettiologists for tips, ideas, and product suggestions to ring in the new year with excitement.

Naturally Elegant – Amazing Rustic Chic Weddings

horses

 

Rustic chic has become a popular choice for wedding themes. The back to nature, understated simplicity is perfect for those loving couples whose idea of bliss is sipping from mason jars in their cowboy boots. The theme also fits the elegant minimalist couple who believe that the focus of a wedding should be on their family, friends, and everlasting love instead of opulent and often unnecessary expenses.

It’s as easy as Mom’s home baked pie to create a rustic feel that is chic while still charming! The Flutter FETTI Team has some exciting ideas for making your rustic chic wedding a dream.

 

 

 

www thelovelyfind dot comThe Flowers

When you are going for a rustic chic wedding theme, flowers are an important aspect to consider. Your flowers should be whimsical and natural, perhaps wildflowers, baby’s breath, or clusters of daisies. The bouquets can be tied with garden twine or jute rope and the table arrangements can be vintage mason jars, either clear or tinted, in a variety of colors to suit your them.

 

 

Confetti


white 6 inch hand flick launcher

Celebrations that shower the bride and groom as they exit the church or ceremony location are the perfect place to set the tone for the rest of the wedding celebration. Instead of handing your guests little bottles of bubbles or packets of petals or rice, why not consider using one of our various sized confetti launchers to celebrate the newly wedded couple!  One option is to give every guest a 6″ hand held confetti launcher filled with white, biodegradable tissue confetti to send into the air as the happy couple passes by them.

 

 

Attire

Shorter tea length dresses that show off western boots provide just the right amount of sass for the bridal party. Perhaps even include cowboy hats, either the entire wedding party could wear them or just the groomsmen. Another option is casual sundresses with simple sandals (or no shoes at all)!

 

www dot saplag dot netRustic Décor

You want the décor to look perfect on your big day. A fantastic and inexpensive choice is getting bales of hay for your location and using them as extra seating. Hay bales can also be put to use as a place to hold flowers, chalkboard seating charts, gifts and cards or your guest book.

For an evening wedding outdoors, hang mason jars filled with votives (either real or the LED variety) on low hanging tree branches. This look creates a magical atmosphere that’s also incredible in photos! Get creative and use barrels, wood pallets, galvanized accents, and re-purposed farm implements as unique touches to your reception location.

Ceremony Ideas

Decorate your ceremony with fabrics like burlap, linen, calico, and lace. Birch wrapped accents and wooden aisle signs add a finishing touch. One cute ceremony idea is using a ring pillow that is made out of burlap or even a small bird’s nest to hold the ring! You could also have the flower girl wearing a crown of flowers or ivy while walking down the aisle for a lovely rustic touch.

 

www southern weddings dot comWedding Party Transportation

A limo seems out of place at a rustic wedding. Try some other options such as a hayride, a vintage pickup truck, or even a horse drawn wagon. Don’t forget to add a special send off when the bride and groom are leaving the reception! Our 18″ airless launchers half filled with custom colored metallic streamers are a gorgeous effect for outdoor use. These streamers are very easy to clean up, and in fact, they’re so pretty that guests may pick save them as a wedding souvenir! Our airless confetti launchers provide an exciting send off to bring the wedding to a close.

Baptism & Christening Parties with Pizzazz!

A baptism or christening is a wonderful cause for celebration. Families and friends alike want to share this moment with their loved ones. Whether you’re hosting a large affair or a more intimate gathering, you can have an incredible baptism or christening party. All you need to do is add the right amount of style and flair this sacred and cherished time. The Flutter FETTI Team is here for all of your party planning needs – read on for their exclusive tips to make this day oh-so-memorable!

Photo Booth with a Streamer or Ribbon Back Dropwww etsy dot com jd photo props store

Everyone will want a picture with the little guest of honor, so create a special area just for photos. Streamers and ribbon are eye catching options that won’t break the bank. Just drape them vertically from the ceiling to the floor, tightly next to each other and twisted together at the top. Since they come in a variety of colors, you can definitely find pale pastels and white colored streamers to capture the true innocence of a ceremony like this. Set up a chair or bench front and center for baby and their guests. If possible, set up the photo booth in a well-lighted area that receives lots of natural sunlight. Share the photos with your family and friends after the party! Did you know we can custom color and make any size tissue or metallic streamers to hang on the wall? And there’s no minimum order for streamers!

Soft colors mixed with white Flutter FETTI will cascade around the guests and provide amazing photo opportunities. Loved by adults and children, confetti will make your baptism or christening party stand out.

 

 

 

Twww blovelyevents dot comhe Desserts

The menu is always something that is important at any gathering, but when you really think about it, the desserts are the star. Satisfy those hungry party goers will a special cake, cookies in the shape of a cross or dove, a color coordinated candy bar, or even a pastel colored cupcake or donut tower! Set up a “dessert station” for all of the sweet confections.

 

 

 

 

www esty dot com resebudchocolates storeParty Favors

Unlike other parties, people don’t typically expect some type of favor for this event. However, you don’t need to let your guests leave empty handed! Choosing something simple like candies in a white or pastel colored miniature bag stamped with the name of your child and the date of the baptism can be a great place for you to start. You can also make white chocolate lollipops with cross shaped molds and simply wrap in cellophane and tie with a white ribbon.

 

 

 

The Theme

Who doesn’t love a theme? Party themes tie the entire event together. Think invitations/announcements, décor and style. A few ideas for your theme could include:

  1. Seasonal – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall each bring unique ideas for decorating around the time of year when your child is baptized.
  1. Animals – If you had a baby shower with an animal theme, why not incorporate the same idea with this party? You may even have some decorations or ideas you could re-use in unique ways. Decoration with little lambs, ducks, elephants or monkeys are always an adorable choice.
  1. Location, location, location – Live at the beach? Make it a coastal party with starfish, nautical decor and various blue confetti products. Order our “water soluble” instant dissolve tissue to use by the beach. As always, all of our tissue is biodegradable!

The Flutter FETTI Team is here to help make your baptism or christening magnificent!  Contact one of our confettiologists toll-free at (877) 321-1999 for customized suggestions today!

Head to the Great Outdoors

Did you know that you could easily create an outdoor movie set right in own your backyard? All you need is a projector, a large white sheet (Queen or King sized), pillows, some chairs or blankets, and clothespins. You may want to use two sheets and double them up if you don’t have a solid backdrop. Simply hang one end using a line and clothespins while weighing down the bottom with bricks or heavy rocks. Voila – you’ve created your projection screen! Just set up the projector, connect to your computer, stream the selected movie and enjoy! Arrange the pillows, blankets and chairs around in a semi-circle for a comfortable place for your guests to relax and enjoy the show.

Charisma with Confetti!

Why not hand your guests some 9” airless sticks filled with metallic streamers as they arrive? These won’t leave a mess in your yard and are very easy to pick up.  We can also custom color the streamers no matter how small your order. Create a FETTI-frenzy at the end of the movie, incorporating Flutter FETTI will have the crowd feeling like Hollywood royalty. Using loose Flutter FETTI die cut stars as decor on your concession tables is another easy way to add ambiance. If you really want to make an impact, rent a confetti blower for maximum WOW!

Get the Party Popping

A movie night just isn’t complete without popcorn! You can buy an inexpensive tabletop popcorn maker and serve up freshly popped popcorn all night long Set. up topping bar option with different fun and tasty flavors in everything from savory buffalo ranch, cilantro lime, and chipotle to sweet cinnamon & sugar, peanut butter, and s’mores.

Create It: Easy Concession Stand

One of the best ways to bring the movie theater experience to your night is by having a “concession stand”. Put out a wide variety of candy and snacks for your guests to enjoy while movie watching. Don’t forget the beverages! Set up a drink dispenser or cooler filled with icy cold drinks all can enjoy. Juice boxes are a big hit for any littles ones (less mess to clean up post movie!).

Don’t Forget to Decorate

Add some flair to your movie night by hanging colorful outdoor lights and some movie-themed décor. The details might be small, but the impact will really WOW your guests.

DIY movie nights are simple to pull off, but a memorable way to hang out with your friends and family. You can come up with a theme to go along with the movie and use custom colored Flutter FETTI to compliment your theme. Romantic chick flick? Go with pinks and whites. Old Hollywood glamour movie? Try metallic silvers and golds. American War Films? How about some Red, White and Blue patriotic products? The possibilities are endless.
