Festive New Year’s Eve Party Poppers and Tasty Cocktails

Courtesy of Kayla Kitts

Hi Friends,

Can you believe we’re almost at the start of another year? It feels like only yesterday we was wearing giant New Year’s glasses emblazoned with “2-0-0-0.” over a decade has passed, but we still turn to classic party poppers when we need a fun and chic favor idea. What's best is they’re easy to make and are just as festive on the outside as they are on the inside.

Use recycled gift-wrap tubing and fill with cellophane-wrapped chocolates, homemade treats or small gifts. Decorate with ribbon and colored paper. You can also turn the poppers into a game by numbering each one and then have guests trade the packages Yankee Swap-style. For a bonus, we also have an amazing cocktail recipe perfect for that classic midnight toast.

Liam’s Midnight Toast Cocktail

This colorful and flavorful cocktail is the perfect drink for toasting at New Year’s Eve.

Single serve


4 oz. champagne (reasonably priced non-vintage champagne is fine)
1/2 oz. cognac
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
dash of Campari
orange wheel (garnish)
crushed ice


1. Fill a large chilled wineglass with crushed ice.
2. Add the following in exactly this order:
  • Champagne
