Anytime is a great time for a party, and these Spring Party Hacks fit the bill. Winter, spring, summer or fall a few good party hacks will say it all. They’re fun, easy and will help set the mood for some great party fun.

Cotton Candy Champagne

Want something memorably different for your next get together? Try serving some Cotton Candy Champagne and let the good times roll…

What you will need:

Your favorite flavor(s) of cotton candy
Champagne, sparkling wine or sparkling water
St. Germain liqueur or your favorite liqueur (optional)
Candy sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

Fill glasses with cotton candy to just over the top, leaving room for the beverage of choice. Add a splash of liqueur and candy sprinkles, if desired and enjoy! This is absolutely perfect for a girl’s night in, birthday party or girly brunch.

Umbrella Chandelier

Have an umbrella that’s seen better days? Does it no longer hold off the rain? Don’t throw it away! Make it work for you and your next party. This easy, inexpensive party hack will make a lasting impression.

What you will need:

An umbrella to repurpose
Spray paint for metal, your choice of color
Christmas or indoor/outdoor decorative string lights (battery operated)

Instructions

Gather materials. Remove fabric from umbrella frame, if needed and cover with spray paint and let dry completely according to manufacturer’s instructions. Twist and drape lights over the arms and up the handle. Hang and enjoy!

DIY Light up the Night Balloons

No party is complete without balloons, but these DIY LED balloons are sure to be a crowd pleaser. They’re simple and inexpensive and will add that festive touch to your next soiree.

What you will need:

LED lights (DIY, repurposed key chains from your local dollar store or purchased LED lights)
Balloons
Canister of helium (optional)

Instructions

Gather materials. If you’ve chosen to purchase your LED’s, check out your local party supply or dollar store to get what you need. You can usually find LED key chains that pulse a variety of colors, so you won’t have to settle for the same old thing.

Assemble the balloons. Turn on an LED light and insert into a balloon before filling with helium or blowing up. Tie off balloon and attach some string. Repeat for each balloon and scatter your blinking balloons around the scene to really light up your party!

And, if your LED’s are still glowing by party’s end, pop your balloons, retrieve the lights, turn them off and save them for next time.
Any one or all of these party hacks is sure to be a crowd pleaser. There are no limits to what can be done, only imagination. So use yours and throw a party to remember.
