Classic Hats and Champagne
You dont have to spend a fortune on your party but you can look like you did. Adding a few classic top hats (which you can pick up at any party supply store fairly cheap) and some champagne classes is a great way to throw a hit party. Champagne glasses are also available at party supply stores and you can get several plastic ones in a package for under $5. Tutorial/Idea Catchmyparty
You simply have to have confetti to ring in the New Year. If you have a small table or even a fireplace mantel, you can set up a mini confetti station with everything that your guests need when the ball drops at midnight. Place small plastic glasses or boxes filled with confetti and remind everyone to visit the station shortly before midnight so that they can throw their confetti when the New Year arrives.

Again, you dont have to spend a fortune to throw a grand party. You can easily make a centerpiece using old glass soda bottles. Just wash the bottles and spray paint with black and then glittery silver or gold paint. Make glittery numbers for the bottles using cardboard so that you can officially announce the arrival of 2014. This is a quick and easy centerpiece project and you can add a few silver and gold Christmas decorations to really make it look spectacular. Tutorial/Idea Atozebracelebrations
If you are looking for easy (and cheap) decorating ideas, a wreath made from colorful drink umbrellas is a great choice. If you dont already have the umbrellas on hand, you can pick them up at most party supply stores for very little. Just arrange them around a metal wreath base or create your own base if you want. You can customize the wreath for the New Year by adding 2014 in the center in glittery numbers or just any way you want.
Make your table or other display look beautiful with Christmas ornaments that are decked out for New Years Eve. If you have glass or plastic vases (or really large glasses) you can just fill them with leftover Christmas decorations to make them look really festive for the New Year. Red and black are dramatic colors that look wonderful for New Years parties. Tutorial/Idea Tablespoon
