New Year's Favor
Make some noise when the ball drops with fun party supplies you can create yourself.
Encourage a big ruckus when midnight arrives by providing party guests with confetti and noisemakers. Fill a small glassine bag three-quarters of the way with confetti. Use double-sided tape to affix the bag to the stem of a noisemaker. Fold the top of the bag over, and seal with a bright sticker. Make a bag for each guest, and arrange the packages on a festive tray so everyone is ready when the countdown begins.

Dish out some serendipity to family and friends by giving them lucky New Year's foods. In Italy, lentils are thought to bring prosperity when eaten on January 1 because they resemble little coins. In the South, eating black-eyed peas shows humility and thus invites good fortune.
