A black and white decor scheme for New Year’s Eve (NYE) is always perfect for a party. You don’t really need a big budget, ladies dressed in dazzling white or black gowns or men dressed in black suits with white bowties!

Plan a black and white NYE’s party and just ask guests to wear at least one black item. Then you reduce some of the other colors in your small living space, store them in a closet, even under the bed. Bring out as much black and white decor items you have—or not. Set up a lovely black and white theme buffet of drinks, appetizers and sweets.

Check out these simple ideas to inspire you, get to a party store and start selecting decorative your New Year’s Eve party paraphernalias.

LED flickering candle lights, such as the ones shown above, is a great alternative to flame-lit candles. You don’t have to worry about someone knocking over a candle and starting a fire.


Set up a small table or use the cocktail table with lots of NYE paper ringers and hats. Sprinkle gold stars all over the table,

It’s a party! What says that more than balloons. You don’t really need a lot of them. Then again, that too would be fun in your small space. Either way, add the simple but significant excitement of balloons.

If you’re not having a sit-down New Year’s Eve dinner, be sure to add something for guests to munch on. Offer trays of hor d’oerves and sweets.

Check out your favorite deli, mix and match an assortment of cheese, meats, olives and veggies. Often the deli section will have trays of appetizers already made up, especially this time of the year. All you’ll have to do is present the scrumptious appetizers beautifully. Or if you prefer make your own appetizers. Perhaps some of your guests would like to help out. Karina from Cafe Delights offers 20 wonderful ideas for New Year’s Eve appetizers.

You may want to set up a separate “food bar” for sweets. Here’s a few ideas to inspire you.

Delight your guests with delicous mini parfaits. From the creator for these mini parfaits shown below, here’s how they were made:

For quick assembly, I started with pound cake from the grocery store I cut in cubes, but you could use any flavor of cake or even cupcakes. Layer your cake of choice with lemon curd, custard or pudding, chocolate fudge or ganache, add some fruit if you like, top with whipped cream and some gold sparkling sugar!

The controversial silver dragées have been used for cake and cookie decoration for years and add a little festive sparkle of silver for New Year’s. I don’t use them on a regular basis so I wasn’t worried about the small quantity in the parfaits, but if you’re concerned, eliminate them and stick with sanding sugar in silver and gold instead.

Of course, no NYE party is complete without the traditional singing of Auld Lange Syne (From the Wikipedia)

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

CHORUS:

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine† ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give me a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY New Year!

BE SAFE . . . BE HAPPY
