STAYCATION DAY 5: HOW TO HOST THE BEST NYE PARTY


1 - DECORATE WITH A PHOTO GARLAND
Show your squad you love them with a year-in-review of your friendship (aw!) by decorating with pics of you guys together. 

YOU NEED
String
Photos
Clothespins
Seed lights (optional)


Cut a piece of string to fit as many photos as you want. Using clothespins, attach the pics.



Hang the garland as decoration anywhere you want!



2 - MAKE COLORED MOCK-TAILS 
Every good party needs a signature drink, and this Faux-jito with colored ice is boss. 

Use the different colors to differentiate everyone's drinks! Cute and practical = win-win.


YOU NEED

FOR THE DRINKS
(makes 5-6 drinks) 

10 sprigs of mint 
5-6 Limes
1L Lemon-Lime Soda
Paring knife
Glass mugs
Straws

FOR THE ICE CUBES
Ice cube tray
Food coloring
Time in the freezer


We suggest pre-mixing your colors in seperate bowls to be sure you get the color/opacity you want. Mixing straight up food coloring in such a tiny bit of water will make your ice cubes mucho dark...So pre-mixing is the way to go.

Then...CAAAAREFULLY spoon fill each cube. You'll wanna do this the night before so they freeze completely.


The night of the party, slice your limes and crush your mint. Divide evenly among glasses. Fill each with lemon-lime soda.

Add colored cubes and straws!


3 - FUN PROPS
When the ball drops, you'll wanna be taking memorable pics. Photo booth props are where it's at.


4 - THE PERFECT OUTFIT
Let's not forget to plan the most important part... your NYE look.

Happy new year, babe!
