Seeing Stars for New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is a great excuse to bring the glitter and shine back out from Christmas! And what better way to do it than with star-themed decor?! Here are some easy ways to set a starry night for your party–all that you can still make in time for this weekend!

Set the stage with hanging, glittery stars. Spray adhesive glue on cardboard stars you've cut out, and spread on glitter. If you're in a time crunch and budget allows, Michaels has glittered paper at about $1 per sheet, so all you have to do is just cut out your stars. With a moon, you can create a fun "photo booth" area as done here. Photo source here. Or make your stars by gluing glitter and fake snow to a silver cookie cutter, then hang with ribbon. A collection of stars in different sizes, along with metallic streamers, would make a very festive backdrop. Photo from Sandra Lee Christmas mag.

I love this star headband as a fun alternative to party hats! Get the how-to from Design*Sponge here. Your desserts should get some sparkle too! Find out how to make these sugar stars here.

Have the kids make glittery wands. Attach bells so they can use them to make noise at midnight! Photo source here. Finally, give your guests star cookies as a favor. Top them with edible glitter for a real fancy touch! Photo source here.

Whatever you choose to do this Friday night, may your New Year's be shiny and bright!
