With the sparkly outfits, wild balloon installations, badass playlists and midnight kisses, it’s no wonder that New Year’s Eve is your favorite holiday to host. But before you break out the bubbly and start building your annual champagne tower, we’ve spotted a few big trends and we’re sharing them to help you be the hostest with the mostest heading into 2019. From what to drink to what to decorate with, we’ve got you covered.
Using dried elements instead of fresh flowers is a good way to ensure your NYE décor will hang around a while. Go big and creative, like this gorgeous hanging installation, and you’ll be tempted to keep the remainder of your fab party night up till spring kicks in.
Sequins will always be the go-to of the season, and with very good reason. So, go on and pile up the disco balls and sequin backdrops. Maybe you’ll even score some sequin sneakers while you’re at it. The more sparkle, the merrier!
Make way for the new matte black, y’all. Gunmetal accessories are all the rage in NYE décor right now. Hosting a NYE dinner party? Get wild with it and opt for a gunmetal velvet table drape, all gunmetal serveware, dark and moody florals down the table and a ton of gunmetal candle holders.

We’re all about a good color palette and something that’s dried, wild and untamed is exactly what we’ll be going for with our floral spreads this NYE. Pick up the late-night vibes with wild foliage and bring a bit of intrigue for 2019 into the look with a hint of dried flowers too like floral designer, Layered Vintage created for our team's holiday party this year.
Skin contact? Yes, please! Certainly, when it comes to wine. Natural wines (sans sulphites and preservatives) are seeing a major rise in popularity among the wine aficionados we know. Rather than popping a bottle of fancy schmancy $500 champagne this NYE, opt for a sparkling chenin blanc or maybe a vouvray brut. Pét nat, orange wines and skin-contacts are also primo for the serving and make for a rainbow of sipping styles.
We love a good balloon drop on NYE, but a creative balloon installation is even better. The trick is to think bigger is better. And you might as well get crazy with the colors – tis the New Year’s season.
Minimal, Scandinavian design is going no where in 2019 and we're loving plating your NYE party hors d'oeuvres with this monochromatic grey set. Pair with your aforementioned gunmetal silverware and you have a perfectly on-hue party.
Get starry eyed with celestial, cosmic and other worldy inspired stationery this New Year's Eve. 2018 has been a year of the supermoon, eclipse and meteor showers so celebrate another trip around the sun with cosmic inspired NYE party invites.
Living Coral is the Official Pantone Color of 2019
Living coral is the hue of the year and it’s really energizing the new year. Opt for a coral dress or – better yet – a coral suit and break out the matching lipstick to complete your New Year’s Eve ensemble.
