New Years Eve Banner

This is another post from last year... so I apologize for the banner reading "2010" instead of 2011!  But hopefully you get the idea!  I think I'm going to do something similar tonight with my kiddos... Enjoy! Did you see us on Studio 5 today? One of the simple ideas that YOU can make at home for your New Years Party is a simple pennant banner. All you need is some colored cardstock, a few yards of 1" (or wider) ribbon, and some party horns or blowers! Then follow these simple directions: 1. Choose a color combination (we chose black, turquoise, hot pink, purple and lime green) 2. Print out templates and cut out banners. 3. Lay your ribbon out on the floor and make a pattern using the flags and horns. Get everything situated how you want it. 4. String blowers on ribbon, then staple your cardstock flags right onto the ribbon. And that is it, folks! So simple. Be creative - you can use rhinestone embellishments on your flags, tie candy onto the ribbo

Right before midnight , guests or family members grab what they want off the tree to ring in the New Year! A FUN PARTY THEME IDEA: Countdown by the Hour (Use a CLOCK theme to carry throughout the decorations and activities) -Paint kids faces white, then use black to draw clock hands. -White balloons (or clear filled with confetti) can be drawn on to look like a clock. -Have guests bring an alarm clock (and gather all of your own)… set the alarms to al
