Make New Years Eve centerpieces for your table that will rock until midnight with glitz and bling! A fun sparkly arrangement creates an exciting atmosphere for your guests while they wait for the strike of twelve. Silver, gold, glitter, diamond confetti, mirror balls, candles… any of these will provide your party with that extra punch for bringing in the New Year…in Centerations style!
Break out the champagne and take a look here for some simple and inexpensive ideas...
Here are instructions to make this simple and inexpensive centerpiece:
For added glow, include lots of candles in various sizes all around the table.
This New Years Eve centerpiece can be made quickly, easily and cheaply. It would also be great for a winter wedding centerpiece.
Here's how to make it:
Include matte and shiny ornaments to provide texture, interest, and sparkle. For a really neat glow, add a battery operated light underneath the "snow".
Here are a few additional ideas for centerpieces that I've brainstormed for you. Most can be easily put together with minimal skill.
Empty champagne bottles (make champagne punch with it!) and insert taper candles into empty, rinsed out bottles.
Sparkling Water Floating Candles
Fill crystal stemware with sparkling water and add floating candles to it.
Rice Crispy Cake
Bake a large round cake, or make one out of rice crispy treats, and decorate it with a clock face showing the time just before the stroke of midnight. Use cookie icing for decorating a rice crispy treat cake or frosting for decorating a regular cake.
Secure a tree branch (sprayed in metallic or glitter paint for extra sparkle!) into a container. Have a pen or marker available next to cute note paper for guests to write down resolutions for the New Year. Once written, they can hang them onto the tree with ribbon. You can either read them later and everyone can guess who's it is...or save them for the next year and see if people kept their resolutions! (Plus, it gives you a reason to throw another party!)
Paint several glass jars or tin cans with spray paint, all in one color. Once dry, add branches or berries in same color tones to each container. Shades of wintery blue, silver, gold, or white would be pretty for a New Year's party.
Color Changing Lights
Place battery-operated color changing LED lights in the bottom of a vase. Cover with clear marbles or stones. These look beautiful at night as the light changes from one color to the next. I found a package of submersible color changing balls at a Wal-Mart store for about $3.00. It has 7 different color options. It's a cool way to make a unique centerpiece on the cheap!
"Times Square" Ball
1. Insert a wooden dowel, approximately 3 feet long, into a stack of floral foam blocks that have been stacked end-to-end. (Note: You will need to secure it to a wider base, such as a piece of wood, to help stabilize it).
2. Paint or cover the foam. Then, create lines and decorate to show each hour from the starting time of your party at the top until midnight at the bottom.
Decorate any remaining exposed part of the dowel with ribbon, a mylar “spray” (to look like fireworks), tinsel, balloons or metallic pipe cleaners.
3. Next, take a Styrofoam ball (about 4” in diameter & painted or glittered) and insert a wooden craft stick about half way into it. Insert the other half of stick into the clock tower at the top line hour (the start time of your party) and then you or your guests can move the ball down the tower each hour until it reaches the midnight hour.
