Craft a Fabulous Cocktail Party for NYE

Planning a NYE party right after the chaos of all other winter holidays can be an absolute deal-breaker. Luckily the internet is a never-ending pool of party inspiration and cocktail recipes, so to save you time I rounded up a few perfect details and ideas that you can use to throw the perfect NYE bash (with minimal prep). Click through the links for the tutorials and recipes! 

If you're on a budget for you party, consider pre-mixing champagne cocktails to stretch your bottles further. Try this Pomegranate Champagne Punch by Martha Stewart. . .

or this Grapefruit Champagne Cocktail I found on Healthy Seasonal Recipes (lol)

Try alternative garnishes like these gorgeous sliced figs by Beth over on Tasty-Yummies

or freeze mini-skewers of fresh fruits and berries prior to the party to chill champagne cocktails.

Have fancy non-alcoholic options available too! Providing interesting beverages and barware for those not partaking in the booze is thoughtful and a marker of a expert host/hostess.  Prep these frozen berry and herb ice cubes I found over on Better Homes and Gardens  and provide a few flavored seltzers for guests to serve themselves.

Brittni over on Paper and Stitch made all my bubbly dreams come true with these gorgeous Champagne pops-- click through to get her delicious recipe!

Your guests will go nuts for these gorgeous gold leaf embellished champagne jello shots by Sugar & Cloth

Elevate your dollar store party decor with sleek storage: Keep party poppers and horns in tall glass vases on your bar or counter for guest to grab before midnight! 

Set up a quick photo-op with a simple and economical backdrop like this balloon installation.

If you've got time you can get to snipping and create this hanging fringe garland by 100 Layer Cake There's also a handy tutorial by Oh Happy Day!
