Celebrate Your Sweetest New Year Yet!

NYE blogDid you know that up until 1751, Colonial America was still observing the new year on March 25th? Intriguing as that is, we still prefer to celebrate it in January: There’s something so quintessentially winter-esque about the New Year, right down to the sparkly decorations we like to use, reminiscent of clear winter nights and fresh snow! This year, accessorize the holiday right with a dessert buffet full of glitter, champagne, and (of course) candy! Read below to see how we fashioned ours and learn how to create your very own!


Start off by classing up your display with shiny adornments — these Glitter Sequin Ball Sprays in Gold, Black, and Champagne turn any celebration into an elegant affair. And this New Year’s Ball Piñata will fill the vertical space above a buffet table with shimmery grace! Spruce up the surroundings with a bit of fluff in the form of paper pom poms! Unfurl a few White and Black Poms and hang them from the ceilings to create a dashing and original design.

It’s always best to usher in the New Year with fancy sweets! These White and Dark Chocolate Tuxedo Cups make the perfect vessel for holding a dollop of mousse or whipped cream. And Champagne Bubbles Candy is a perfectly sophisticated, non-alcoholic delicacy certain to set the mood for celebration! Feel free to throw in some Black & White Gummy Penguins for a touch of whimsy.

Why not make your fête into a masquerade? Use these Candy Mask Lollipops as an elegant and tasty way to spruce up a buffet table (or hold them to mask your eyes like a sweet version of the real thing!). Include some shimmery candies to round out the display in festive colors. We really like these Silver Metallic Foiled Hard Candies, Pearlescent White Gumballs, and Gold Foiled Almonds.

Rock Candy Swizzle Sticks make fantastic additions to any drink that could use a spot of sweetness. Swirl them into a coffee to help you stay up and celebrate, or use them to mix up a champagne cocktail!

Remember, ‘tis the season to get a little buzz going with these Anthon Berg Chocolate Liquor Bottles. Way tastier than shots, they also look fantastic as table décor! And we hear champagne pairs quite well with chocolate, so when it’s time to break open the bubbly, go ahead and unwrap a life-size chocolate version of the bottle as well!

Allow your guests to sample and take home gift packs in class Black Polka Dot Candy Bags. Check out our New Year’s Eve Candy Buffet Photos for more images of our snazzy table arrangement!
