To the 9's on New Year's Eve

"A Red Carpet Affair. Hollywood at Home Celebration."


What better way to bring in 2009 than with a simple, but elegant, party? Friends and family will love dressing up and feeling special and you will love throwing a party that is glamorous but not financially over the top! It’s To the 9s….


2009 New Year's Eve Party Invitations


New Years Eve InvitationSet the tone of your party before a single guest has arrived with a great invitation. Choose a personalized New Year's Eve invitation featuring all the sparkle and pop of the New Year.


Want a really different invitation? Since this is sure to be a red carpet evening, why not send a Hollywood style invitation? Choose a photo frame style key chain with the party information inside. When the party is over, everyone will have a fun souvenir.


Have some fun and design your own invitation! Draw or cut out 2009 in glitter paper and then write the party information on the back. Or, find (or draw) an elegant looking couple who are “dressed to the 9s” and place it on a piece of colorful cardstock paper. Write all the party details with glitter pen and include some 2009 confetti for an extra touch.


Whatever type of invitation you choose, be sure to remind your guests to wear their finest…they should “dress to the 9s.” And, try and get your invitations out early since it’s such a busy time of year.


2009 Party Decorations and Paper Products


New Year's Eve Red Carpet PartyYour guests will feel like real celebrities the minute they get to your house, or wherever the party is being held. Greet them with a red carpet, lined on either side with votive candles in small glass holders for a little extra sparkle.


Decorate your bushes, trees and around the doorway with white twinkling lights. They’re always fun and festive.


Important people are always being photographed so why not your guests too? Recruit some guests to act as the paparazzi.  Outfit them with digital cameras or better yet, personalized New Year's cameras from Creations For You. (Be sure to get a few extras, you’ll want them later on.)


A personalized 2009 banner hanging on your front door will offer an extra warm welcome. These wonderful banners are weather resistant and can be used anywhere.


It’s a glitz and glamour night inside as well as out! But don’t worry, elegant doesn’t mean boring. All your guests will gasp as they walk in to your softly lit and sparkling party room.  Try some or all of these decorating ideas:

  • Use candles everywhere!  Different shapes and sizes – small votives, medium and large pillars, even tapers in a variety of candle stick holders look wonderful.  Remember to group your candles in odd numbers, they look best that way.

  • Remember the white twinkling lights you used outside?   They look great inside too,  wrapped around banisters, on fireplace mantles or even draped on top of a buffet table.

  • Hang streaming swirls from the ceiling.  They look great and will create a wonderful shimmery effect on the walls and floor as they catch the light from the candles.

  • Balloons are always a fun and economical way to decorate.  Place large bunches on the floor, beside doorways or in the middle of a table as a fabulous looking centerpiece. Dazzling metallic colored balloons accented with an iridescent 2009 mylar balloon will make quite the decorating statement!

Everyone (including your home) will be dressed “to the 9s”!


New Year's Eve Table Decorations


Your tables will sparkle just like the room itself if you choose metallic tablecloths. Choose coordinating tableware because holiday time is NOT the time to be doing dishes!


Scatter store bought confetti, or make your own by cutting small circles, triangles and curls out of metallic sheets of paper, on all the tables. It will give your tables a little extra pizzazz.


Glamour gals and guys never go out without their shades.  Celebrate the New Year and help dress your guests “to the 9s” with 2009 glittered plastic glasses. Place them in a large bowl in the middle of the table and you have a centerpiece and party favor in one!

2009 Party Activities


New year's eve kitHand out some glam New Year's Eve wearables to get everyone in the celebratory spirit. The gold top hat kit has top hats, tiaras, horns and beads, all in a slick black and gold metallic color scheme.


Now that everyone is truly glammed up, roll out the red carpet again and start taking photos. The personalized cameras that the “paparazzi” used as your guests arrived are perfect. Or, use a digital camera and post the photos online later- everyone will love seeing them.


Want another type of photo opportunity and really special way to remember the New Year?  A photo taken in a created 2009 photo op from Creations for You will be a wonderful souvenir of your party, long after it’s over.


No party is complete without music and party games.  Create a CD of your favorite tunes, or just plug in your personal music player.  Great music will bring out the singer in even the shyest guest.  Be ready for informal karaoke by having an assortment of microphones!


Everyone loves to play games, no matter how old or young they are.  Classic like charades are always great but how about a guessing game based on “the 9s?”  Just imagine the answers you’ll get to questions like what would you do with 9 lives?  Or, name 9 songs with 9 in them (remember “we’re gonna party like it’s 1999?) Let your imagination run wild and you’re sure to have your guests laughing all night long. Or check out our New Year's Eve Party Games for even more fun ideas!


2009 Party Favors


Unfortunately, all parties have to end some time but you can make your guests’ departure a sweet one.  A milk or dark chocolate candy bar wrapped in a personalized New Year's Eve wrapper from Creations for You is a delicious reminder of a wonderful evening and a great way to bring in 2009.


Working together, you and Paarty411 will guarantee that your party is “To the 9s” and more.  Before you know it, everyone will be calling to find out what’s happening for 2010!
