One 36 count package of New Years Serpentines. The serpentines come loosely fastened together on two 5.25 inch rolls, and easily break apart. While holding the end of the New Years Serpentine found inside the roll, throw! The serpentine will spiral across the room and uncurl into a delightfully curly, colorful streamer. Be sure everyone has 4-5 to toss at midnight.
For some GREAT action shots, place your digital camera on a high shelf or mantle in the party area, and set it to take pictures every 2 seconds starting at midnight. Lots of folks here have done this and the pictures turn out fantastic and funny.
