New Years Eve Bar Cart Accessories
While there are so many fun ways to display your treats and cocktails, if you follow us on Pinterest you would know that we believe that a trendy bar cart makes a versatile choice not just for NYE but for so many other occasions as well. And if our Bar Cart Pinterest Board has not yet convinced you that you need one for your NYE bash perhaps this idea will.
Here, Courtney Whitmore does a great job giving us the bar cart breakdown on how to style your cart accordingly, but what caught our eye was her fun balloons!
“Balloons make everything better!” Courtney says. “I found these cute ‘Pop Fizz Clink’ balloons in black and gold from The Flair Exchange on Etsy, and I knew they were the perfect touch”
And while we couldn’t agree more we also know that you can very easily recreate this style with any balloons you like and a set of metallic Wine Glass Writers. What’s even better about our method is now you can write any crazy message you like on your balloons. Don’t like your handwriting? Grab some stencils and you’re good to go!

NEW YEAR’S EVE CHAMPAGNE TASTING PARTY
We already know that you love wine tasting parties, but have you ever been to a champagne tasting party?
The ‘Inspired By This’ Girls grabbed our attention when they suggested this perfect alternative for a New Year’s Eve party! “What’s more fitting, than ringing in the new year with (various types of) champagne and good friends,” they say. “Not only is this champagne tasting a fun & creative party but it’s beautiful too.” And you can see exactly what they mean by that when you follow all their tips to host the perfect NYE champagne tasting here.
And while we LOVE their little card stock papers used as name tags for each sparkling wine, naturally we’d opt to save trees and use a Wine Glass Writers to make notes. (Just remember to write above the pour line or on the base of your champagne flutes when serving a chilled beverage.)

Champagne Is Great But What About Cocktails?
Whenever celebration is in order one of the first drinks most of us think about is champagne, and as Jessica Gordon Ryan says, “New Year's Eve is really worth celebrating... As we bid farewell to the old, we openly embrace the new and welcome all the good that will come our way.”
And while we agree, sometimes you just really want a cocktail, right? Listen, we get it - as you can see here, we are cocktail recipe hoarders. So naturally Jessica’s list of champagne cocktails had to be included in this list. Trust us these are going to be good, so don’t lose your drink or someone else will be sure to finish it for you. Label your drink with a Wine Glass Writer and don’t forget to write on the base of your champagne flute or above the pour line when serving chilled drinks!
“Whether you like champagne on its own or doctored up a bit, there's a way for everyone to enjoy it as we anxiously await the arrival of a New Year.”

Where would we be without resolutions on New Years Eve. We completely love this idea we found on the 'One Little Minute Blog' for a New Years Resolution booth. Create your own stylish photo prop with a cute picture frame and black paper. Have your guests write their resolution on the glass and take a photo. (You can easily clean the glass between takes with a Windex wipe) Now there will be photographic evidence when you aren't sticking to your resolutions!
We think this Martha Stewart countdown tip is perfect. “For a fun twist on the New Year's Eve countdown, pass Champagne in glasses marked with numbers representing those anticipated last 10 seconds.”
While she suggests picking up some self-stick numbers from an office supply store you already know that this is the perfect task for our Wine Glass Writers. Keep in mind you’ll want to write on the base of your champagne flute or above the pour line for your chilled beverage.
