It’s almost 2018 and you’re ready to curl up with the pets and hit up Netflix, right? Nope. Your friends have decided that they want to party at YOUR PLACE. It’s time for you to host the most dope, fake-fancy New Years’s Eve party ever (with almost no time).
You’ve got like a day, maybe two, to get shit in order. You need some last-minute New Year’s party ideas that will slay (or at least keep things chill and fun?). I’ve got you. Here are some quick decor ideas, drink funsies, easy-peasy food ideas, and maybe some help from a friend or even Amazon Prime.
Let’s get to the celebration ideas, you party animals…
Amazon Prime an easy photo booth backdrop
Or maybe you’d like some rose gold glitter?
Make fancy & easy champagne Jell-o shots
Decorate a store-bought cake
Just shape those suckers into “Fuck yes 2018” and you’re good to go.
Make the FANCIEST champers bucket ever
Yeah, this one isn’t THAT last-minute, but the time is mostly spent freezing, so you can can clean up your month-old dishes at the same time.
Freeze up some glitter ice cubes
This one actually IS easy. Edible glitter + ice cube trays = instant sparkly win.
Load up some smart phone group games
Board/card games are great (think Cards Against Humanity, Exploding Kittens, Werewolf, Mafia, Murder of Crows, and Secret Hitler), but if you’re crew is full of smart phone holders, these group games on your computer, game console, or TV are the best bet for tons of hilarity.
Don’t cook, raid your pantry
Don’t cook anything if there’s no time. Just scrounge around for pickles, cheese, crackers, lunch meats, dried or fresh fruits, and whatever you’ve got. Then get to arranging them on a big board or plate all fancy-like. Here’s how to do it.
Dessert idea: candy kabobs!
Pop some popcorn
You probably already have a bunch of seasonings just waiting to make popcorn taste gourmet AF.
Pick a signature party cocktail
You’ll save money by not having to buy a ton of varieties of booze. Plus, it’s just fun! Grab the recipe for this sparkling rosé strawberry cocktail here.
