Throw a fantastic New Year's Eve bash without breaking the bank with these cheap essentials — plus win £15,000 on the Sun Savers Raffle

But you don’t have to spend much to create a party atmosphere.  Here are four great tips to make your NYE bash go off with a bang . . . without damaging your bank balance.

LIGHT RELIEF: Create a fun atmosphere by illuminating your house with as many fairy lights as possible. It’s a simple trick that will give each room a party feel. Check out Dunelm 200 White LED String Lights, £7.50, down from £15; Wilko 20 Warm White Battery-Operated Mini Ball Christmas Lights, now £1.50 (includes batteries); and the item no celebration should be without — a disco ball. Urban Outfitters has an extra-large one reduced from £15 to £8.

SAVE: £16 if you buy these items now rather than at full price

GAME ON: Rather than the games played at Christmas that should have a referee and scheduled time-outs to cool off, these are designed to get the party started. We love New Look’s Multicoloured Gin-Sling Pong Party Game, £2.50 reduced from £5.99; and Boombeatz Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone, £9.99 at B&M, down from £14.99. You and your guests will have loads of fun.

SAVE: £8.49 if you buy these items now

SWEET TOOTH: Most of us listen to music through our smartphones or tablets and even the best can sound a little tinny. Rather than spending lots of cash on speakers for your party, check out some mini-Bluetooth options. They might be small but they are mighty. Trust Mila 2.0 Speakers cost £8.99 at Argos. As they are a pair, you can spread the sound out.

SAVE: £6 if bought at Argos

HAVE A POP: What’s a NYE celebration without party poppers? Your bash may be more sophisticated than the one we’ll be at but these fun items always go down well at midnight. Head over to Asda, where you can pick up a bag of 30 party poppers for £1, reduced from £1.50.

SAVE: 50p on buying the same amount from Wilko
