Ten, nine, eight…you know the countdown, and it’s just around the corner! There’s no holiday quite like New Year’s Eve—the gold, the glitter and that midnight kiss. But what really makes New Year’s Eve great isn’t the chance to start over, it’s having your friends, family and loved ones surround you as you celebrate another year together. And what better way to celebrate than with New Year’s Eve inspired decor and tasty drinks to top off the night.
First things first, you can’t let your guests go thirsty, and you definitely don’t want to find yourself thousands of calories deep from sugary cocktails—not to mention the hangover that will ensue the morning after. Your best bet? Opt for a light calorie drink with only one gram of sugar. Truly Spiked & Sparkling offers you the best of both worlds—delicious flavors like Grapefruit & Pomelo, Colima Lime, Lemon & Yuzu and Sicilian Blood Orange and for only 100 calories. Yes, you read that correctly, 100 calories, one gram of sugar and a whole lot of amazing.
Next, you’re going to need some decorations. Where’s the Party? in Costa Mesa offers a wide selection of everything you’ll need! From golden confetti to paper straws, Where’s the Party? will make your New Year’s bash the envy of Instagram. Be sure to create the ultimate selfie station with your favorite decor, balloons and New Year’s Eve gear.
Last but definitely not least, you’re going to need a playlist to keep the night going. You’re obviously going to have Queen Bey to grace your list’s presence, but don’t forget about the classics like “Auld Lang Syne,” the Mariah Carey version (obviously). You can even round up the top hits of the year and reminisce about where you were when “Look What You Made Me Do” hit the radio. Now all you have left to do is grab your crush, watch the ball drop and ring in 2018.
