New Year’s Cocktail Table or Secret Weapon?

Cocktail tables will keep your guests socializing and your decor fresh! Here are a few tips to create the best shining cocktail tables for your New Year’s Eve bash.

Begin with Your Cocktail Tables

Be sure you have the correct size tablecloth to maximize the effect of your New Year’s cocktail tables! You can rent or purchase cocktail tables with several different heights and tabletop sizes. It’s always better to have a little extra tablecloth rather than a tablecloth that’s too short. 

If you’re unsure what size tablecloth you will need for your New Year’s cocktail table, we suggest using a standard 132″ round tablecloth. For a more precise list, you can measure your tabletop and table height then get in touch with our Customer Service department for advice

Bring on the Gold

Accessorize to Astound

Finish your New Year’s cocktail table look by tying a sash around the pole of the cocktail table. We chose to pair silver and gold for a fresh look.

Set The Mood For Your New Year’s Party

Rearrange the Furniture

When you’re setting the scene for your New Year’s Party, picture the mood you’re aiming for. Keep your guests alert and active! Chic nightclubs are bustling with cocktail tables for congregating.

By adding cocktail tables to your venue, you are encouraging your guests to stand and mingle instead of sitting and thinking of snoozing. Add a few cocktail tables and your guests will be ready to dance the night away!

Serve a Countdown Cocktail

Champagne is the go-to New Year’s toast, but don’t be afraid to add your signature touch! Add edible rock candy sticks to give your guests a memorable detail and make your champagne extra sweet.

Make a Killer Playlist

The key to keeping the party momentum going is pumping out the hot jams! If you are not much of a DJ, try Spotify or YouTube for a preassembled playlist to keep things fresh.
