New Year's Eve Photo Backdrop

New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate! I love getting a fresh new start with a new year and new possibilities. I also like that it’s a much more low key holiday than the ones that precede it. No presents to buy, no stress! Just delicious appetizers, bubbly drinks, and kissing at midnight. I can handle that!

We love to celebrate with a laid-back game night with friends and family. Everyone brings a snack to share, and then we all pop open the sparkling cider at midnight. It’s always really fun and relaxed. To make things a little more festive this year, I made this easy New Year’s Eve photo backdrop. It was super simple and quick to make, and so much fun!

SUPPLIES:

*This was my first time using a Balloon Time helium tank, and I am kicking myself for not using one sooner! It is so much more convenient than trying to shove a big balloon bouquet into the back of my car, and then driving across town with zero visibility. It’s unbelievable how much easier it is to be able to blow up the balloons at home!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. I started by cutting some numbers and small circles out of my glitter card stock. I freehanded the numbers, but you could easily print out some numbers in a font you like. Size the numbers large enough to fill the page, then trace them onto the card stock.
  2. After I cut out the numbers, I also used a one-inch circle punch to cut out a bunch of little sparkly circles from the scraps.
  3. Next, I taped my tablecloth to the wall, and then added my glittery dots. I used small pieces of masking tape to hold them on, but I’m sure a glue stick would also work. I put them in a fairly random pattern (although I am a little neurotic and like things to be evenly spaced).

4. Once I had my dots on, I hung the numbers from the ceiling using fishing twine. You could easily just tape them to the backdrop instead, but I wanted them to stand out from the background just a little bit.

5. The last (and most fun!) step is to add your balloons. I found some bags of silver and gold balloons at my local craft store, and then I put my husband on balloon-filling duty. The Balloon Time helium tank was simple and easy to use, and we had a big bunch in just a few minutes!
