Resolution Journal

You can create a resolution journal for your guests using colored cardboard papers. Take a large piece of cardboard paper and fold it in half like a greeting card. Then, stick smaller pieces of paper inside lengthwise before stapling them together along the fold in the cover.

Lastly, decorate the cover of your booklet. You can use dry flowers or stickers to do that. You can even spice it up with a picture on each page.  Place your finished resolution journal strategically on a table.

How do you make those bouquets?

Get some beautiful, long, thin noisemakers. Be sure to choose different colors, sizes, and shapes. Then, mix and match to create celebratory centerpieces.

Fill some small vases, roughly a third of the way up, with beautiful stones or colored marbles. Arrange your noisemaker in the vases. At midnight, allow guests to pick their preferred noisemakers from your arrangements.

New Year Wreath

You can use colored cardboard papers to craft a nice decorative wreath. To begin with, choose any pattern of flowers that you like. Then, draw on your cardboard paper.

Make about 3 similar patterns before cutting them out meticulously. Then, attach each flower using a ribbon and place a designed paper with 2018 written on it in the center of the wreath.

You’re certainly looking forward to 2018 that’s full of good fortune and prosperity. In light of the fact that Black-eyed peas signify good fortune for the coming year, why not use them to craft centerpieces that represent a prosperous 2018?

In fact, black-eyed peas can make a stunning centerpiece for your New Year Eve’s party table. So how do you make a black-eyed centerpiece for your New Year’s Eve decoration?

Sprinkle pinecones and accords on a table with a glass bowl filled with raw black-eyed peas in the center. Then, snuggle a tea light on a small, upside-down votive holder in the glass bowl. The votive holder plays the integral role in ensuring a safe distance between the flame and the black-eyed peas.

Alternatively, you can set one or two small candle holders and candlesticks in your bowl of peas. Just be careful that your peas don’t get burned. You don’t want to ruin the New Year’s Eve fun by setting off the smoke detector.
