New Years Eve Party Trends and Supplies

As we head towards the end of the year and our minds turn to Christmas and then NYE, we thought we’d share some NYE trends and party inspiration with you thanks for Favor Lane Party Boutique who stock a gorgeous range of all things NYE! Shelley who owns Favor Lane shares her tips and party “must-have’s” for celebrating this special yearly event!


What do you see as the colour trends for NYE this year?

So far it’s looking very much like a lot of metallic for NYE this year. Gold & Black as always is popular and basically anything that shines!

We think you’ll also see a fair amount of Rose Gold this New Year’s Eve.

For someone wanting just a few decorations to spruce up a space for NYE what are the “must-have’s”

Balloons, Balloons & more balloons. They have really taken over the party scene this year. The fact that they come in all shapes, colours and sizes, means that you can tailor them to not only your theme, but more importantly, the space that you have to work with.

For example, if you are styling a small room, you can always fill a bunch of latex balloons with helium and it can be enough to jazz things up. The other option is letter balloons or word paper garlands.

Fringe curtains are also a nice choice as they’re affordable and can be used as a table backdrop, a fun entrance or photo booth backdrop. Champagne Bottle Foil Balloons are also a popular choice. They are 91cm in size so create impact at any celebration.




For someone wanting to go all-out for a NYE bash, what are the essential extras to give their party a real wow factor?

Alternately if you have a larger area to work with, there’s the option of a balloon garland (my personal favourite). Our DIY Balloon Garland Kits are so easy to assemble.

They come in a range of different colours however if you’d prefer something different, then there’s always the option of choosing your colours from our extensive collection of balloons.

Sizes range from Mini, through to jumbo round balloons and are available in solid colours or confetti filled clear balloons.

We have recently added a convenient Clear Decorating Strip to our range which comes with pre punched evenly placed holes. The purpose of the strip is to create perfectly shaped balloon garlands or arches.

The strong 2-ply polyurethane is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Garlands can be hung from the ceiling or simply drape them over one side of your food or drinks table.

The other advice I would give is to go with disposables. These days there are so many stylish, yet affordable options available.

Your table can still look amazing without breaking the budget, and without doing dishes, yay!!

Our stunning Metallic Collection would be my first choice for NYE. The high quality plates and cups come in Gold, Silver or Rose Gold shiny foil. Team them up with  matching Metallic Foil Straws so your guests can eat, sip and party in style.  Be sure to check out our Gold Ornate Cutlery. You won’t believe that it’s plastic.





For mum’s looking to create a kid-friendly NYE gathering, what are some fab and fun party finds Favor Lane offers?

We love the idea keeping it fun and colourful for the kids. Party horns, Glow Sticks and an abundance of confetti will always be well received.  We also LOVE the idea of doing a Balloon release ‘9pm countdown’ (or age appropriate time for your little guests). Simply air inflate latex balloons with a hand pump and place into one of our Balloon Release Bags. They come complete with a pull cord and hold up to 50 balloons. Hang above your desired release space and pull the cord to shower your guests with balloons.

We also suggest setting up a kid friendly photo booth. Our Fringe Foil Curtains come in Gold, Silver or Black and make the perfect backdrop. Pop some of our photo booth stick props into a bucket or on a small table and they will provide hours of fun for the little and big kids.
