The answer:

Happy New Year

Reasoning:

The top part of the image represents pieces of a Connect Four board. When rearranged to have a continuous border, they show a board state with only one line of 4 circles in the same color. The squares corresponding to those circles contain the letters RAE YWE NYP PAH. This, when read backwards, gives the answer.
