Pop Fizz Clink! A Mod New Year’s Eve

Hey party people! New Year’s is so close we can taste the champagne! Whether you’re going out to pop bottles with friends or planning the perfect at home bash, we’ve got you covered. From party poppers and noisemakers to the best party hats around, everything you need to ring in 2018 is here!

To prepare for party time tomorrow, we decided to share a New Year’s Eve tablescape for inspiration (or just to copy, we won’t judge¬†ūüėČ).¬†While we love a classic, beautiful, black and gold New Year’s set up, we decided to do something a little more fresh for 2018.

Silver, black, white, teal, and holographic pops inspired our mod New Year’s table design. We started by creating the perfect backdrop for our table with our super easy¬†2018 balloon kit and some balloons in our color scheme from our balloon bar.

A silver crepe table runner made a perfect, slightly shiny base for our bright accent pieces. Each place setting was flanked with fun, bright flatware and an acrylic goblet. Layering multiple plates and different napkins for different designs made for perfectly custom settings.  We mixed and matched:

For the rest of the table’s accents, we used disco ball string lights, a paper star garland, teal glittered votive candles, and one of our favorite marble cake stands. We didn’t forget the festive¬†party hats¬†or delicious party penguin gummies either!

We’d love to see what you create for your New Year’s Eve bash; show us with #partywithjollity!

Rudolph Tree DIY

Sometimes it seems like even when all the cookies are baked, the lights are strung, the tinsel is… tinsel-ed, your holiday party could use a little something extra. We‚Äôve come up with the cutest way to add some whimsy to your decor with our DIY Rudolph Tree! And the best part? It only takes four easy steps!

To make your own adorable Rudolph, you’ll need:

B&W-2

  • 3 foot tree in color of your choice
  • one 5 inch red honeycomb
  • one paperclip
  • one sheet of 12 x 12 heavy paper for antlers
  • one sheet of 8.5 x 11 heavy paper for eyelashes
  • Rudolph printable

Remember, your Rudolph is completely up to you! You can use any color of tree, paper, or honeycomb to make it your own!

1. Print and cut out our Rudolph printable.

 

Print out our Rudolph printable, and cut out both the antler and eyelash. Trace the antler onto the back of your 12 x 12 paper. Make sure to flip your template when tracing the second antler. Cut out Rudolph’s antlers! We, of course, chose to give our reindeer gold glitter antlers.

2. Make some eyelashes!

Trace the eyelash from our printable twice on your 8.5 x 11 paper and cut them out.

3. Time for that magical nose.

B&W-9

Take your honeycomb and fold it out fully. You can secure it with a paperclip instead of adhesive so you can fold the honeycomb flat and use it again in the future!

4. Now we can assemble Rudolph!

B&W-11

Place your antlers on the tree, and secure them in place by wrapping a branch around the base of the antler. Rudolph’s eyelashes rest nestled in branches of the tree. Most honeycombs have an attached string for hanging, so we hung our nose from a front middle branch of the tree. 

Let us see what you create with #partywithjollity on Facebook and Instagram! We can’t wait to see your Rudolph!

7 Ways to Make Your Presents the Best Under the Tree

We can’t believe how quickly time is flying in December! Take a break from bustling around buying presents, stringing up garlands, and preparing for holiday parties to check out our 7 tips on how to make your gifts the most fabulously decorated under the tree! Warm up a cup of cocoa and settle in, we’re here to help take your presents from same old to Pinterest-worthy!

1. Fold Like a Pro

Let’s start with the basics. Before you can perfectly trim your presents, you need a solid foundation! Making sure your present is boxed or an easily wrap-able shape makes the process so much easier, and will give your wrapping professional, clean lines.

2. Get Creative With Your Paper

Here are some ideas we love for out of the ordinary wrapping paper!

3. Use Ribbon in Unexpected Ways

While presents wrapped up with a bow on top are pretty and traditional, there are plenty of fun ways to use ribbon to embellish your gifts. Try taking a length of ribbon and wrapping it around the whole present multiple times, then hang a tag or decoration from one strand for a fresh look.

4. Remind Them Not to Peek!

One of our favorite decorations this season are these¬†adorable present stickers! From telling the recipient to “Save Until Last” to letting them know that “Hooray! It’s Not Socks”, these stickers are the easiest way to add some spirit to your gifts.

5. Stamp It On

Looking for more subtle decorations? Wrap your presents with a simple paper with no pattern and adorn your package with stamps in monochrome or metallic ink. We especially love this llama stamp from our Holiday Wrapping Party last year!

6. Add a Laser Cut Tag That Doubles as an Ornament

One of our favorite toys here at Jollity & Co is our laser! We can create almost anything out of acrylic, wood, or paper. Adding a custom laser cut tag to a gift is the perfect personalization that makes a great ornament after all the presents are opened!
