Festive silver New Year's Eve bubbly bar inspiration

It's time to celebrate the New Year with a glamorous bar setup worthy of a Great Gatsby inspired party! The shimmer of the silver beautifully ties to the glitz of ringing in the New Year, which is why sticking to one color can add an extra dramatic pop to your event. Even though we aren't leaving our house and celebrating with my immediate family this year, it doesn't mean we can transform our house into a whimsical party scene! It's so important to find the little moments to celebrate...especially with bubbly in hand.


When sourcing the props for the bar setup, we had all the items in our house already (we love hosting parties so have a lot of supplies we save and reuse over the years) but you can also place a curbside pickup order from Party City for an easy way to get your party essentials. Using the silver fringe doorway curtain, I laid it across the chest I was using as a bar to add a shimmering effect to the surface without the mess of using confetti. You can also hang a tinsel chandelier above the bar for a cascading look that further weaves in the tinsel elements.


Incorporating small mirror disco balls or silver orbs and mercury glass candles is another way to elevate the display and create a cohesive look. Please these items on either side of the bar so the champagne tower can be the focal point. Keeping the setup simple yet dramatic was the goal for this bubbly bar, especially if you want to replicate it at home for your own New Year's Eve celebrations.


Overall, make sure the setup is tight with little clean up yet aesthetically pleasing! If you don't want to use silver as your primary color, you can select gold, black or whatever color you like. The most magical part is giving your family a festive display to ring in the New Year.
