New Years Eve Party Feature

I hope you’ve enjoyed a wonderful Christmas celebration with your friends and family! Now with New Years Eve coming up soon it’s the perfect time to share more images and details from this bright and fun New Years Eve shoot featured in Issue 3 of our e-magazine! Styled by Dream a Little Dream events we absolutely LOVE the pink spin on what is normally a black/white/gold affair and love how kids were incorporated into the celebrations.

New Years Eve when you have young kids is so different to before kids – but when they get to the age where they can stay up, then it’s the perfect time to host a celebration with another family or 2 and let the kids have fun with balloons, crackers and a few treats- and that is what this party feature is all about!

Enjoy the images and get inspired for either a New Years Eve celebration or any fun party theme for 2018 starting with this bright invitation to get the par-tay happening!



Plinths have been a huge trend this year and we love the clear plinth look here filled with balloons and the way all the bright colours just pop against the white background!



The desserts continued the bright pink New Years Eve party look:









Such a fun range of balloons and party decor were used in this shoot and as you can see, the kids just went crazy for it all!:













The result…an amazing and pretty mess of balloons, confetti and crackers!

All that Glitters – Black and Gold by Sugar n Spice Party Printables


Oh my where has 2013 gone, one minute it is 1 January the next it is almost News Year Eve again and time to start planning the party all over again. We have all bases covered for you, which include activities for the kids and ideas for adults too plus some ‘All that Glitters’ FREE printables which will come in handy for you and your guests.

How do you celebrate New Years Eve, do you take the kids with you and involve them in the celebrations if so here are some excellent ideas to keep them entertained for hours on end;



Countdown activity – Celebrating Family website



How cool is this and so easy to do, all you need is;

– Lolly bags/Tote Bags – which can be found on eBay, etsy or many businesses online sell them

– Draw a clock on the bag or print one out and stick it on the bag

– Buy some fun toys, lollies, or even set up a treasure hunt with a map or clues inside each bag

– Make sure you have enough activities for the amount of time you will be at the party for e.g. 6pm, 7pm, 8pm, etc



Another idea is to create a little kids corner table with paper, glitter, crayons, textas, pencils, stickers and paints where they can decorate the night away whilst having so much fun with their little friends and you can relax a little more knowing they are having fun and not destroying the house in question.

Don’t know what to feed the kids?  To be honest keep it simple and balanced with lollies, fruit, popcorn, chips, cupcakes, sandwiches – so a little bit of naughty and nice foods to keep the kids happy.

Perhaps put the fruit in cups or even on kebab sticks and cut the sandwiches into shapes for a bit of fun for the kids.

Also we can’t forget the cookies and milk! How cool do these look? So cute and easy to do:
