Blow Horns and Party Hats Write your names and wedding date on the party hats and give out blow horns, etc. in a small gift bag.
Champagne Give your guests small bottles of champagne with personalized labels.
Hershey Kisses Wrap several silver foiled Hershey Kisses in gold or silver netting. Tie with a silver/gold or black bow.
Festive Mini Candy Jar Start with a baby food jar or other small jar. Paint the top in silver or gold acrylic paints. Attach a personalized label to the jar with your names and wedding date. Spread glue over the cover and the jar and roll in gold and/or silver glitter (don't cover over the label). Fill with colorful mints or candies. Tie a silver ribbon and bow around neck of bottle.
Personalized Calendar There's a lot of software that can help you create personalized calendars for the new year. If you don't wish to do this on your own, pick out some really nice photos (either personal photos, landscape scenes, etc.) and take it to a local copy shop to print for you.
Fortune Cookies See what the New Year has in store for your wedding guess. Wrap fortune cookie favors in netting or place in small, decorated favor bags/boxes for each guest.
Fortune Bubble Ornaments Another fortune idea is to purchase plastic, see-through round ornaments (at craft stores). Separate the bubble, place a rolled up fortune scroll in each ornament. Add some curled ribbon and put the two halves back together. Attach a ribbon to hang the ornaments. For an added touch and a centerpiece for your tables, put silver painted tree branches (secured in decorated pots) on each table and hang the ornaments from the tree.
Past Year CD Pick several of your favorite or number 1 chart songs from the past year and burn them on CD to give as favors. Label it "The Best of 2003" or "Our Favorites of 2003".
Glow-in-the-Dark Items Glow in the dark items are very popular now at New Year's. Give you guests any type of glow in the dark item such as stars, cups, necklaces, fiber optic wands, fun eye glasses, etc.

- grand-uncles and grand-aunties,
- uncles and aunties,
- elder brothers and sisters,
- elder cousins
However, there are also families that prefer to serve the grandparents tea before the parents.
Within each generation, dad's relatives are served before mom's relatives.
