Just like all the big celebrations you see on TV, you too can have a balloon drop to recognize the New Year. All you need to do is purchase a plastic tablecloth, cut it into four pieces, use a little bit of masking tape to put it back together and then tape the corners to the blades of the fan. Once it’s attached, you can fill it with balloons. Be sure to have a string tied to the center of the tablecloth that will pull the pieces apart, releasing the balloons.

Even the ice that keeps all the drinks cold at your Caliterra in Dripping Springs New Years Eve party can be given an extremely festive twist! All you need is to purchase some edible glitter in the cake section of your local craft or grocery store. For the perfect glitter ice cubes, you’ll want to freeze the ice cubes like normal (without glitter) then remove them from the freezer and wait for them to melt a little bit. After that, simply dust them with the glitter and then refreeze them. Your guests will love it and your drinks will be festive!
