Party 101’s Thea Neal shows us how to make a simple and festive photo backdrop for your New Year’s Eve party! You’ll have your partygoers teaming up for selfies and hashtagging the event all evening long. Using just some wrapping paper, twine, and sticky hooks, the backdrop comes together in no time. You can use materials you have on hand, or use pretty gold, metallic, and faux-crystal textures for a glamorous NYE theme – see the products listed below for a few ideas. Add a cute extra touch by printing these cutouts and making a sign to hold up when the camera’s about to flash. This New Year’s Eve party idea will leave you with a string of photos featuring all your spirited, favorite friends – it’s the perfect way to remember the party for years to come.
