Even if you dropped the ball for the ball drop, you still have time to throw together a fantastic New Year's Eve celebration. We scoured Pinterest for the tastiest, trendiest, sparkliest DIY decor, food, and cocktails for a fabulous end to 2013 and a festive hello to 2014!



Gold and glitter continued to be hot trends in 2013, and we don't expect them to go away anytime soon. Pop glittery bottles with Evite, or check out The Pretty Blog for glitter-dipped flats, a sparkly party banner, and pretty platters.



We're loving these DIY blowers for midnight celebrating via Minted. And to make the countdown toast extra special, this 3-2-1 bottle stopper via Confetti Pop is ready to party. Sugar & Cloth shows you how to make homemade party poppers and A Subtle Revelry has DIY pipe cleaner crowns, plus 9 other drink and decor hacks!


Design by Kelsey & Scout via Eat Boutique

Our favorite food-loving sites are serving up delish ideas for your last shindig of 2013. Eat Boutique has 6 drinks and desserts featuring Champagne, and NoshOnIt shares 11 tasty apps you can eat with your hands.

What are your plans for 2014? Share in the comments or tweet us at @DIYBoston!
