HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC NYE PARTY
Nothing is more magical than unicorns, so why not bring a fresh and festive flair to this night of revelry with blush pinks, rose gold and pastel confetti. Set up a fab backdrop with a combo of gold stars and Champagne bottle balloons, then take the decor to next-level adorableness with a few mini unicorn piñatas. Dress up the dessert bar with sparkly lights, ombre paper plates and plenty of rainbow party cups to keep peeps toasting the night away.
