How about lots of balloons? Since helium can get expensive, I blow up balloons, tie a long curling ribbon to each, and tape them to the ceiling with a small roll of tape. No-one every guess I didn't use helium! How about making noisemakers at the party to use at midnite-put some pennies, beans, rocks or whatever into a soda can and tape shut. Cover with paper, tie both ends like a bonb-bon and decorate as desired. Maybe give prizes for loudest, silliest, most artisitic... Make party hats for all by using paper grocery sack and rolling the edge up a fold or two, then squish into a hat that fits. Paint as desired and decorate with bits and pieces-glitter, silk flowers, beads, stickers, pompoms, ribbon, etc. Have a fashion show and give lots of prizes for lots of categories!

A New Year's Eve family tradition at our house is to open fortune cookies. They're not very expensive. Also, you can purchase an 8 count package of champagne poppers at the $1 store.


The kids love those because of the loud noise and confetti.

I once went to a party where the host had us all right down on a sheet of paper our prayer requests for the year - you could do goals or resolutions also. We put the papers in an envelope with our name and SHE kept the envelopes until the next years party when we got to open them and see how things turned out.

Our family celebrates by having fondue for dinner (MUCH less cooking for me - and FUN and DELICIOUS) and then we play charades most of the evening (we make up our own charades and write them on little pieces of paper and put them in a bowl or hat to draw from). At midnight, after we've hugged everyone, we grab pots and pans and lids and go outside (yes, in the cold) and bang everything very loudly and we all yell at the top of our lungs, "Happy New Year"!

some friends of mine had a game night -- guests brought their favorite board game, puzzles, etc. Munchies were provided, guests brought their beverage of choice (alcoholic or not). Those who planned to drink were encouraged to also plan on spending the night -- and bring their own pillows and blankets, as well!


At the stroke of midnight everyone greeted the new year with noisemakers and cheers. It was lots of fun and very inexpensive!
