New Year’s Eve is a time to reflect on the ups and downs of the past 365 days, welcome bright new beginnings, and create your list of New Year’s resolutions—you know, the one you miraculously forget about by mid-January?

This year, ditch the resolutions in favor of a fabulous New Year’s Eve party. We’re talking Champagne toasts, fireworks, and plenty of glitter.

Whether you already have a color scheme in mind or you’re still sketching out the details of your extravaganza, festive NYE décor can go a long way. We’ve got a shiny list of New Year’s Eve party decoration ideas to get your December 31st glimmering in gold and ringing in an unforgettable year to come.

How to Decorate for New Year’s Eve

There’s no wrong way to throw a New Year’s Eve party, but there are many ways to ensure your party is one to remember. Once you’ve selected your New Year’s Eve party idea, follow these tips to ring in the new year with style.

  • Clear out the Christmas stuff. You don’t have to take down the tree yet—see our tips below for a proper holiday transfer—but the décor in your house should be less Santa-centric than it was a week ago. Opt for New Year’s Eve decorations from Paperless Post Party Shop to step things up a notch.
  • Choose your vibe. Is this a tux-and-gown type of New Year’s Eve party, or a feather-boa-and-wild-glasses shindig? Decide whether guests should dress up or party down long before you select your New Year’s Eve décor.
  • Opt for gold, silver, and black. No matter the mood, you can’t go wrong with a gold, black, and silver motif. It channels sparkling Champagne against a midnight sky—the perfect energy for any NYE event.
  • Set your theme early. Don’t let your guests arrive in ball gowns when you’re serving Jell-O shots! Establish the dress code and theme early with Paperless Post New Year’s Eve invitations, which you can send via email, text, or shareable link for the most replies possible.

After shopping for the perfect tree for two hours in unmentionable temperatures (or hauling it out of storage), you—and your tree—deserve admiration well past Christmas Day. That said, once Santa has gone back to the North Pole, it’s time to give your beloved tree a New Year makeover.

  1. Gold ornaments: Replace your red and green Christmas ornaments with colors for the new year. Opt for simple and sophisticated gold and silver.
  2. Sparkly tinsel or garland: If you want your tree to sparkle brighter than a disco ball, consider sprinkling gold or silver tinsel on your tree from top to bottom.
  3. New Year banner: Add a letter banner across the front of your tree for a dash of pizzazz.
  4. Champagne ornaments: Bring cheers to the new year with a set of glass bottle ornaments. Tiny bottles in tiny buckets of ice are just the adorable—yet boozy—touch your party needs.
  5. Shooting star ornament: Hang a hand-embroidered White Shooting Star Ornament on your tree. This wool beauty works for Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
  6. Black tassel garland: Add a black-tie detail to your Christmas tree with Paperboy’s Tassel Garland Kit.
