Are you throwing an intimate gathering or a big soirée this New Year’s Eve? We designed a colorful New Year’s Resolutions printable for you to download and print for your party, no matter how many guests you have coming over. This printable is designed to be used by both adults and kids with questions like “I Want To Learn,” “I Want To Go,” and “I Want To Be.”

You can set up a table next to the cocktails with enough printables for each guest. Throw some colorful confetti and noisemakers, along with pens, so your guests can starts dreaming up where they want to go and what they want to learn for the new year. You can also use these at each place setting if you’re hosting a dinner party on New Year’s Eve.

DIY: Recycled Holiday-Card Garland

Written by Kathleen Ballos of  Snowdrop & Co

New Year’s Eve has never been a massive affair for us—usually we end up at home watching movies or playing board games with friends and family, snacking on chocolate fondue. We don’t put away Christmas decorations until New Year’s Day, so it still feels a bit like Christmas. When I’m tidying up I never quite know what to do with holiday cards, so this year I thought it would be neat to turn them into a garland for New Year’s Eve. I think I’ll even keep it up the rest of January to keep the mood festive for a few weeks longer. Happy New Year!
