I am going to be for real here… The Happy Hubs and I are not huge celebrators of New Year’s.
We joke that we’re a couple of old people because our buns are in bed on the 31st usually before ten!
With that said, however, I am quite fond of that giant, sparkly ball that drops in Times Square (even though I don’t usually get to see it because I am sleeping).
So here are some fun ideas that will help your Happy Home have a ball this New Year’s Eve (if you can make it to midnight!).
These Ball Drop Cupcakes from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen are quite festive.
Grab a few styrofoam balls and some leftover Christmas supplies (like a bunch of silver ribbons or silver tinsel) and with a little glue you will suddenly have several shimmering New Year’s Eve Balls to enjoy!
Check out Blue Skies Ahead for the how-to.
Looking for something fun to give the Happy Buddies while you’re waiting for midnight?
This Sparkly Sequined Ornament from Kaboose is a great craft for older Happy Buddies to do – not to mention the added bonus of it being a pretty-little something to hang on the tree before the night’s over.
This Times Square Cheese Ball from Spoonful looks so delicious and is really easy to make – what a party show-stopper!
I love a good craft with a paper plate.
Unintentional SAHM simply threw some glitter down on one with her Happy Buddy to make these glistening New Year’s Eve Paper Plate Balls. Add a wooden skewer and you are done!
And, finally, I love making these awesome New Year’s Eve Ball Drop Crafts every year!
You can grab the FREE Printable template and instructions right here at Happy Home Fairy.
However you celebrate (eyes open or closed) I hope that 2013 drops into your lap with a ball of fun!
Happy New Year’s Eve Time Square Ball-ing!
