Favorite Ways to Brighten New Year’s Eve

by | Dec 17, 2019

New Years Eve = Parties!

Hands down, the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to add magic to any party is with lights. If you’ve been following this blog for very long at all, you’ll have it figured out that I have a low threshold for complications and prefer projects that can be done in less than 15 minutes!

Choosing the right sets of lights is the first step to reach that goal.

My favorite light sets for NYE are curtain lights, white string lights, and battery lights. To make things super easy, we’ve hand-picked the individual products most used for January 31 and loaded them into our New Year’s Eve category.

Choosing lights for the end of the year, couldn’t be easier. Be sure to order early. Our last day of shipping is the Friday before the week of Christmas. In 2019, that means we’ll be closing shop for two weeks starting December 20, 2019.

Need inspiration?

Here are a few posts highlighting our three favorite types of party lights.

Curtain Lights

Photo backdrops are quick and easy with a curtain of lights!

For an outdoor party, curtain lights are great on fences.

A String (or 2 or 3 or 10) of Lights

Choose your favorite color in incandescent or LED to wrap and swag indoors and out for the big night.

Use craft lights to accent blocks and bottles. A bar looks brighter with lights!!

Battery Lights

We hope you’ve been inspired!! Party lights will ensure your guests will be remembering your party well into February.
