New Years Eve Inspiration | Paperless Post Invites, Bites & Decor

Happy Christmas week friends!! I wanted to change it up this week and instead of Weekending (the linkup is still live below), I thought I would share a little NYE inspiration since we'll be hosting for our friends this year! We have quite a few people coming so I've been pinning ideas of how to make our space work for the crowd! Let's start first with how I got the word out...the invites! Also, keep reading for a fun giveaway! 

Paperless Post Invites ||

Even though these are all our friends and we could have just as easily sent a Facebook invite or texted everyone - it's New Years Eve and I wanted to give it a little something extra! I went to Paperless Post to check out their selection of New Years Eve Invitations. After sifting through 182 options I narrowed it down to these four. 
Come for Cocktails
Forest Fete 
Confettitini
Polar Hangover 

Bites & Cocktails ||

With the party starting after dinner, we'll have a few light bites, some sweets & plenty to drink! For the apps I'm conscious of some of the food restrictions that my friends have - we have a few gluten allergies & some vegetarians. I'd like to have something for everyone!
Smoked Salmon Bites
Caprese Bites 
Bacon Wrapped Kielbasa
You really can't have a NYE party with champagne & there will be plenty of bubbly at our house! 
via
We have a full stocked bar cart that I fully intend on dressing up! 

Decor & Games ||

Having extra space is really going to come in handy for this party!! We're going to set up a little photo station with some fun props & background! I picked some up from the dollar spot at Target, which is actually not really a dollar 😲 
We'll no doubt have a few different games to play throughout the night - our favorite is fibbage because there really isn't a limit to how many people can play & I just found this great printable game that the girls will probably love to play! 
To save on space we're going to have a separate table for the sweets & champagne set up for the countdown! 

Giveaway ||

Now for some more fun...let me know what your plans are for NYE. Will you be dressing up and going out or dressing down and staying in? Do you have a favorite NYE memory? The winner will receive 1,000 coins - (that's a lot of invites) to Paperless Post! Enter in the giveaway below - the winner will be announced next Monday!

  16. We've never actually hosted a big NYE party before, but I love all of the decor and food ideas that you have picked out! All of those Paperless Post Invites are also so cute, and a great alternative to just the normal Facebook invite. I hope that your Christmas week is off to a great start!

  23. Such lovely invites! I hate going out for NYE but I'd be totally down for this party at home! So many good ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your party is going to be amazing. You really know how to host an event! I love the invites that you narrowed it down to. The penguin one is my favorite mostly because I have a soft spot for penguins lol.

    For NYE I'm doing something I've never done before. Instead of going out or going to a party, I'm going to do a hike through a canyon at midnight & then hopefully be able to stay in the park to watch the sunrise from there.

  25. We always host a NYE party and use paperless post for our invites! I love your ideas about games for the night. I'm definitely going to use those printables!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this post, girl, you have such amazing ideas; I know the party will be a hit! You have to let us know which invites you ended up going with. I especially love the first two, that second one is too cute! Also, thanks for hosting such a great giveaway, too! I hope you have the best week ahead, beauty!

  27. How fun that you're hosting an NYE party! I love all your inspiration, especially that printable memory game. This is the first time in nearly 4 years that Ryan doesn't have to work the holiday, so we are excited to bring back our tradition of going to a movie and getting pizza and champagne for dinner.

  28. I can only imagine what a fabulous hostess you are going to be! I love the games you found and can't wait to see your photo booth pics! XO

  29. Your party sounds like it's going to be amazing!! I can't wait to hear all the games and appetizers you decide on. We've been doing New Years with the same group of friends for over 10 years that's been our night to get dressed up and go out and have fun. Although, I can see us scaling back in the years to come xo Beautifully Candid

  56. My husband works in the hotel industry so he will most likely be working on NYE, but I love to plan a party with my kids! We toast with cookies and milk, play games, and watch the ball drop together!

    Love your appetizer ideas and the decorated bar cart :)

  57. I used to be on a board and we used Paperless Post of all of our events. They seriously have the best designs!! I have no idea what we're doing on New Year's yet... I'm so exhausted right now that I don't think it's a very good idea to try and plan anything until I'm out of my food coma. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  58. You have alot of great ideas here! I'm sure you will all have a great time at your NYE party. I honestly don't even know what I'm doing as of right now. Plans are still up in the air.
