Ring It In: A No-Fuss NYE Cocktail Party

It’s almost time to ring in the New Year! An NYE cocktail party doesn’t have to be elaborate to be fun, so how about gathering your closest girlfriends for a simple evening of drinks and good times?

NYE Cocktail Party Decor

Start with a soft and beautiful backdrop made by hanging string lights behind sheer white curtains. Not only does the lighting add ambiance, but it’s also perfect for the holiday theme.

Dress the floor with white fur rugs and fur pillows for additional texture.

Add interest with a white and pink balloon garland.

You can’t have an NYE cocktail party without a cute bar cart! The Asher 2-Tier Gold Rolling Bar Cart is perfect for entertaining at intimate gatherings, as it’s the ideal size for drinks and snacks.

Blush pink wine glasses and stainless steel gold straws pair perfectly with the soft color palette. Add holiday-ready handmade wire words like “cheers,” “pop” and “fizz” for extra pizzazz. Don’t forget a festive NYE banner for the front of the bar cart!

New Year’s Eats

Serve guests an array of meats and cheeses on a white marble and wood cheese board, which includes a coordinating knife set.

The Columbus Charcuterie Sampler is a crowd-pleaser when paired with World Market® Everything Flatbread, mustard, capers, stuffed olives and assorted cheeses.

Don’t forget the marble corkscrew and “Press for Champagne” bell!

Treat your girlfriends to strawberry & champagne chocolate bars and strawberry rolled wafers for dessert.

It’s Cocktail O’Clock

Toast to the New Year with a refreshing cocktail like Sparkling Lemonade.

Start by filling a blush wine glass with 1 part Coppola Sofia Brute Rosé.

Top with 1 part Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower And Rose Pressé.

Gently stir with a stainless steel gold straw and enjoy!


Add a few gold decorative accents like mercury candle holders to dress up the bottom tier of the bar cart, and you’re ready to ring in the New Year with your besties. Cheers!
