Wow. What a ride 2021 has been for most of us. While some parts of our lives may seem uncertain, there is plenty to be optimistic about including the signs of a rising economy.
Simply put, this is a reason to celebrate New Year’s Eve like never before. It can often be daunting throwing a party for such a big event. However, the right party items can make it a whole lot easier to dazzle and entertain your guests.
Keep reading our list to learn about 5 things you need to dazzle your guests at a New Year’s Eve party – and which, you can find at Uptown.
1. Take-out or Delivery Food
Make your party planning easier with ordering take-out or delivery. Many restaurants at Uptown will be open for you to order out – including a Gig Harbor favorite, Fondi Pizzeria, located right here in our shopping center. After all, the food you serve can either make or break your party.
And when it comes to pizza, nothing is more delicious than the classic Neapolitan pies you’ll find at Fondi.
2. Unique Wine Holders
Chances are, you and your guests are going to have a midnight toast (with plenty leading up to it we suspect 😉
Keep your guests wine glasses in order with unique wine holders. With wine holders, your guests will always know whose is whose. Plus, they can double as cute party favors. You’ll be able to find a range of these items and more at Homegoods.
3. Wishing Paper
Set your intentions and make your wishes for 2022 with lightable Wishing Paper. Write your desires on the paper, fold it, and then take a match or lighter to the paper and watch it float away – sending your wishes out into the ethers. This is something that can entertain children and adults alike. By writing a wish on their paper and seeing it take flight, you’re sure to inspire each and every one of your guests.
For the best wishing paper around, be sure to stop by Paper Luxe.
4. Scented Candles
A lot of people overlook candles, but the right scent can heighten the atmosphere of any party. The great thing is that there are so many different scents to choose from, including seasonal ones that can make the wonders of winter pop.
Of course, the best way to choose a candle is to smell it yourself, so don’t forget to visit Marshalls before you throw your party.
Be sure to include at least one awesome game at your New Year’s Eve party.
There’s a lot to choose from, but we recommend New Year’s Family Feud – a tried and true winner. There’s nothing like several rounds of friendly competition. If you’re looking for more family friendly games, we recommend stopping by Teaching Toys, Too where you’ll find a plethora of games, puzzles, and interactive toys to entertain your guests.
