What to do with Balloons on New Year’s Eve.

December 31, 2009

It wouldn’t be New Years Eve without Balloons.  Not only will they add color and festivity to your party they can be the hit of the evening. Here are a couple of ideas I have to share.

Use a funnel to fill balloons with glitter and confetti and hang curling ribbon from the ceiling.  Tie small bells to helium balloons so when they are bumped or popped they ring in the New Year.

Here is a great balloon game to play: RUN AND POP! NEW YEARS’ BALLOON RELAY RACE: For those that will have smaller children at their New Year’s party, make sure to include a few games that they can enjoy and play together. All the kids love this New Year game. To play, divide the children into 2 or more equal teams and stand them in a line. Give each team ten balloons in a basket. The first in each line takes a balloon and runs to the other side of the room/yard/area and sits or stomps on the balloon to pop it. After popping the balloon they run back to the line and tag the next person who does the same thing. The game goes on until one team has popped all of their balloons. The winning team gets a small prize like a New Years party favor which could be a toy! Make sure to have fun with this game by giving great New Years gifts to all the guests! Even adult children will love this game. You could make the party more festive by decorating the house with New Years decorations!
