CELEBRATIONS: New Year’s Eve Confetti Straws

New Year's Eve Confetti Straws via homework | carolynshomework.comEvery year I try to come up with a new way to package up confetti for New Year’s Eve. That way, everyone just gets a small handful and the confetti and glitter clean up is somewhat manageable. Besides, the package makes it all the more fun.

And here are the confetti holders that I have shared in the past three years.

How are you ringing in the new year? Champagne and confetti? Or, will you be fast asleep at the stroke of midnight?

Thanks for visiting.
