Tips for Throwing a Fabulous New Year’s Eve Party
Determine a Theme
You may be thinking that New Year’s Eve is enough of a theme for your event, but that’s not necessarily the case. It’s a good idea to specify a particular theme for your event so that your guests know what to expect and have an idea of what they should wear. For example, if you want to host a fancy dinner party to welcome the new year, you may want to suggest a black tie theme so that everyone arrives in their very best. On the other hand, you may want to start 2019 on a more fun and festive note, in which case you may ask your guests to come dressed in their funniest hats or most outrageous sunglasses.
Keep Decorations Simple
The idea of buying decorations for yet another holiday party may feel a bit overwhelming, but with New Year’s Eve, it’s actually better to keep your decorations as simple as possible. In fact, you can probably reuse a lot of your holiday decorations, especially if they have a lot of silver and gold embellishments. All you really need for your New Year’s Eve party are a few strands of lights, maybe some gold, silver, and black balloons, and a banner! The last thing you want to do is start the new year with a lot of party cleanup, so it’s best to keep your decorations as simple as possible and stick to enjoying the company of your friends and loved ones.
Ask Guests to Bring Their Favorite Food or Drinks
After the holidays, nobody wants to spend a lot of time coming up with a menu for their New Year’s Eve party. At this point in the year, most people are so exhausted from the stress of shopping, cooking, and spending time with family, they simply want to celebrate with their close friends and go to sleep. If you want to take some of the stress of planning a New Year’s Eve party off of your shoulders, request that your guests bring their favorite foods or drinks to share with the group. Not only will this lighten your to-do list, but it will also ensure that you have a smorgasbord of different foods and drinks to try with your friends!
Have a Plan When the Clock Strikes Midnight
Although spending New Year’s Eve in may not be the same as standing in Times Square when the ball drops, that doesn’t mean that you have to make it any less exciting! If you really want to throw a fantastic New Year’s Eve party, it’s a good idea to have a plan for when the clock strikes midnight. Instead of simply cheering and hugging and kissing your friends and loved ones, maybe hand out some confetti for everyone to toss into the hair, or plan to pop a bottle of champagne as soon as the new year arrives.
