Light Up the Night

To create the perfect ambiance for your New Year’s Eve party, start with the lighting. Add simple string lights, like holiday lights, around your poolscape. Add them to bushes, shrubs and trees. You can even make a big splash by illuminating your pool or using your water features to make your pool come alive. And don’t forget to set up your sound system to dance the night away to the hottest tunes of the season.

Safety Tip: You should also cover any exposed cords and ensure the perimeter of your pool is well lit, so your guests stay safe while ringing in the New Year.

Mix Your Metallics

Decorating for New Year’s Eve is simple. Stick to classic black mixed in with a metallic, like gold, silver or rose gold! An easy way to add these colors to your poolscape is with funky throw pillows with sequins, warm blankets and fun, glittery party favors. You can even purchase tableware for your refreshments in black and metallic to continue your theme.

A glitter backdrop for your pool area to make a nice selfie station and include a basket full of New Year’s Eve accessories, such as funny glasses, top hats, party horns and confetti poppers, is sure to be a hit.

Also, have metallic colored confetti and streamers to celebrate with at midnight!

Serve Delicious Treats

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, less is more. Focus on fun finger foods and hors d’oeuvres, like chicken wings, chips and veggies with dip, figs with bacon and chiles, flatbread with smoked trout or caviar and crème fraîche tartlets. Throw in some champagne, and you’ll be all set for the countdown!

Ring in the New Year with your friends and family at an unforgettable party everyone will enjoy. Happy New Year!
