If we had to jot down a list of all the essentials for a proper New Year’s Eve party, glitter and a bottle of bubbly would undoubtedly lead the charge. Close behind, the less-thought-of details that will contribute to a festive fete, complete with all the necessary bells and whistles. We’re talking: tinsel, chic flatware, and everything else in between. With this in mind, we took it upon us to peruse our go-to shop—the one we can always count on for fun and playful last-minute items—to find the can’t-miss must-haves for the ultimate NYE party. Ahead, just a few of our favorite, festive gear that Urban Outfitters has to offer!

What’s a party without balloons? This see-through, confetti-filled variety will surely lend a unique and playful touch to your celebration. Bonus points for popping them at midnight, to fill the room with an added touch of sparkle!


Metallic Bar Cocktail Shaker Set, $39.00

You’ve long graduated from the standard beer and wine bottle setup. New Year’s Eve is all about the bubbly and festive cocktails served beforehand. This starter-set features everything you’ll need to whip up your signature concoction for the evening.

You say party banner, we say photo backdrop. No need for the KiraKira app with this lustrous banner standing in as the background of all your vibrant photos to come. 
Because what else would you be toasting to the New Year with? These dainty coupes are colorful, bright, and all the good things in between. 
Perhaps filling your home with lit candles may not be the best idea on NYE. Set up this ultra sleek diffuser and let the good smells roll. Bonus points for the fact that it can double as decor. None will be the wiser. 
We’re all for music on-the-go. Give your speaker system a rest and opt for a more retro approach to the music—even if it’s just for a couple of vinyls. 
It’s amazing what a simple band of string of lights can do to a space. Utilize this copper set to lend a bright and festive touch to your existing decor. Wrap them around the bar cart or the windows for added ambient lighting. 
The unofficial decorative necessity of a holiday party is without a doubt confetti. Whether you’re shooting it out of a canon or have it generously sprinkled on a table, it’s about the easiest way to add festive flair to any fete. As for the cleanup? We’ll let the 2018 version of ourselves worry about that. 
Be it a tray for making the rounds with drinks or a sleek board for appetizers and small bites, this two-tone marble cutting board serves up serious style.
