Gold Marshmallows Recipe



Insert the lollipop sticks into the center of a marshmallow. Fill a cup with about half an inch of water. Dip the marshmallow in the water; it should cover about two-thirds of it when you dip it. Place the marshmallow in a bowl and slowly pour the gold pearlized sugar over it, turning it until two-thirds of the marshmallow is covered. Place on waxed paper and let dry. Make a small bow with the black ribbon and glue it to the lollipop stick with hot glue.

Gold Popcorn Recipe



Pop the popcorn in the microwave. Spray just a little olive oil spray, place it in a bowl or individual containers, and sprinkle with gold pearlized sugar and gold sugar pearls; the olive oil will give it a nice shine and help the sugar and pearls stick to it.

Easy DIY New Year’s Decorations

  • Tissue paper puffs, which I created using silver tissue paper and gold tissue paper, follow this easy tutorial HERE.
  • Gold and silver star confetti.
  • Gold and silver tassel garland which I made using gold and silver tinsel I had leftover from the holidays.
  • I made the cake banner using gold party straws, metallic silver cord, silver and gold washi tape to make the little flags, and gold tissue paper for the paper puffs at the end of the straws.  I placed the banner on a store-bought cake and added a second banner with the numbers of the new year!
  • Star wire garland which I glued to the cake stand using a glue gun.
