Our team developed party inspirations to help add a little sparkle to your New Year's Eve event.  Check out these inspirations full of decor and menu ideas!

  • Subtle use of gold in the place setting with gold rimmed glasses and spraypainted wine bottles as your vases
  • For soft lighting, place gold candles in tall cylinder glass vases
  • Wrap small boxes in festive gold wrapping paper with sheer organza ribbon 
  • Hang Metallic Gold Paper Balloon Lanterns throughout the party space 
  • Make gold mason jars: simple tutorial on 100 Layer cake
  • Use pretty textured gold paper to make bunting garland 

Created by Master Mixologist Francesco LaFranconi.
1 1/2 oz Absolut Vanilla Vodka
1/2 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Marie Brizard White Crème de Cocoa
3/4 oz heavy whipping cream
Easy Leaf Products’ Oro Fino Gold Petals

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with 23-kt Gold Petals and shaved
white chocolate.

  • Toss decorative pillows with a pink geometric design in the lounge area of the party space
  • A scattering of glittery table confetti adds a celebratory shimmer
  • Hang sparkling white lights, a pink mirrored disco ball or even retro illuminations for a cocktail-themed event
  • Make the champagne station the center of attention - stack a decorative champagne bucket filled with ice on wrapped packages that match the color scheme

12 fresh mint sprigs, plus extra for garnish
3 ounce(s) fresh lime juice
