Glam up your cocktails & cups
Speaking of cocktails, it’s the last night of the year, so make sure your drinks look like they are ready to celebrate, too. But rather than you having to play mixologist all evening, get your guests in on the drink glamification with a DIY garnish bar. Set up a platter of items like citrus slices, berries, olives, cocktail syrup, rosemary springs, cinnamon sticks, and swizzle sticks so that guests can accessorize their SOLO cup. Feel free to tailor the garnishes to your theme if that feels right -- like neon-colored plastic umbrellas and edible flowers for a beach-themed party. This is also a fun way to prevent people from accidentally picking up the wrong cup (because no one likes realizing they have someone else’s drink by noticing a lipstick stain halfway through a sip).
