There's something about ringing in the New Year that has a certain magic to it. Maybe it's the concept that we get to wipe the previous year's slate clean and start over, or maybe it's just the fact that it's actually okay to dress up in sparkles and sequins for a night. Whatever it is, we plan this one special night months in advance, and so have brought to you 10 awesome essentials for ringing in 2018.
Chances are you've seen these babies all over Instagram. The popular Mylar Balloons are a favourite for birthdays, baby showers, follower counts (gotta love social media), and, of course, New Year's Eve parties. Grab these four digits and you'll have the perfect backdrop (or props!) for all your NYE pictures.
As we mentioned earlier, New Year's Eve is a time for sparkle. In that same way, New Year's Eve is the perfect time to break out that beautiful pair of shoes you otherwise never wear. Enter these Pointed Toe Silver Stilettos — they're stylish, sexy, and glittery as hell. If your killer dance moves don't get you noticed on the dance floor, these definitely will.
Of all nights of the year, New Year's Eve is the one where we get to be crazy, wild, and as loud as we want. So after you sing along to the classic Auld Lang Syne, grab a Beistle Gold Foil Horn and make some noise. Just make sure you leave enough time in between to get that well-deserved (and highly anticipated) New Year's kiss.
2017 was definitely the year of choker's coming back into fashion, and nothing says glamorous quite like a thick diamond (okay, rhinestone) choker. This beautiful creation by LuxeLife will have you feeling very Holly Golightly à la Breakfast at Tiffany's. Plus, when else can you get away with wearing something so extravagant?
While you may have been more into shots or high balls in year's past, there's no time like the present to up your game. Keep things classy as you ring in 2018 by sipping ice-cold champagne out of these Bella Vino Crystal Glasses. Hell, put a little Cristal in your crystal while you're at it.
Much like the noisemakers above, celebratory hats are a New Year's Eve staple. While you could of course go the route of the glitzy tiara, we quite like these classy Beistle Gold Legacy Top Hats, complete with their glitzy gold trim and words. Grab one plus an extra for a friend and the two of you will have some awesome pictures to add to the memory book.
If you choose to forgo the champagne glasses and go another way, these Pop, Fizz, and Clink Paper Straws are the perfect accessory to glam up even a classic solo cup. Buying these straws are the easy decision — choosing whether to rock the '2018', 'Pop Fizz Clink', or 'Kiss Me At Midnight' straw is the hard one.
These Gold Confetti Party Balloons are the best way to dress up any room, especially when complimenting the '2018' balloons we mentioned earlier. You can keep to the colour theme of white and gold, plus pop them at midnight to create a shower of confetti. How fun is that?!
Yes, more horns! Considering the noise is one of the biggest parts of the evening, these Plastic Metallic Horns are a great secondary option for your guests. Grab a bundle (or a few) and make sure that everyone has at least one of these in their hands.
You've got the shoes, and you've got the decor. The last thing to finish off your New Year's Eve party look is the perfect set of glitzy nails, and this Smith & Cult Nail Polish will get you there. We'd be lying if we said that the packaging alone didn't already have us sold.
