Between tying up loose ends at work and getting ready for the holidays, 2016 is creeping up on us *so* quickly. And with another night of celebration just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your last-minute party. Haven’t thought about NYE decorations yet? Don’t worry — filling a few festive balloons gets the job D-O-N-E. Check out our fave buys and DIYs below.
1. StudioPep Champagne Balloon ($8): Champagne is NYE’s biggest fan. Pick up a couple of these bubbly balloons to make your space uber festive.
2. Oversized Balloon With Accessoriess: Snag a jumbo balloon on your trip to the party store and accessorize it with loads of black and gold ribbon. Top it off with a 2016 cutout for maximum impact. (via vtwonen)
3. Little Miss Party New Years in a Box Kit ($69): We know, we know. Spending almost $70 for a NYE kit sounds like an investment, but you get a bunch of stuff.
