No New Year's Eve Party would be complete without a countdown so why not count it down with these great countdown champagne glasses. Their easy to make - just use self stick numbers which you can find at any hardware store or office supply store.
Martha Stewart says, "encourage a big ruckus when midnight arrives by providing party guests with confetti and noisemaker."
Use fun party favors to make a festive centerpiece. These blowhorns are just one idea. You can do the same thing with hats, champagne glasses or clocks. One fun idea would be to have each guest bring their own and set them all up on one table and have the alarms go off at midnight!!
My husband's family is from Spain and it is a tradition in Spain to mark the New Year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. So when I saw this idea I thought it was the perfect way to merge an old European tradition with a very American one so why not adopt (or adapt) the tradition by serving them with a glass of Champagne?
