I’ve always enjoyed a good party and New Year’s Eve is no different. Like many others, the party has changed slightly with kids.
Just because you have kids doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Kids bring life to any party and incorporating party décor that festive and whimsical is fun for all!
Noise makers, fake sunglasses with 2015, hats, confetti, and beads are décor items that both adult and children enjoy. Have a special count down to the New Year at 8:30 or 9:00 pm for the younger kids and serve cookies and milk or sparkling juice.
