Throw the Best New Year’s Eve Bash
It's time to ring in the new year, but you don't have to go out to have a good time. You can stay home and throw a New Year's Eve party that will have your friends talking about it until next December, when it's time to do it all over again. Not sure where to start? We can help. Use these tips to throw the best New Year's Eve bash ever.
Keep It Intimate
First of all, the best New Year's Eve party isn't always the biggest New Year's Eve party. Sure, you can rent out a space and invite your friends, their friends, and everyone you follow on Instagram, but it'll cost you a fortune and you'll spend the night feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Keep your bash simple. Host it at home if you have the space. Invite only your closest pals.
Skip the Meal and Serve Your Best Appetizers
Your party will likely take place during dinnertime, but that doesn't mean you need to serve dinner. Impress your guests with a small buffet of your best appetizers instead. Finger foods and snacks are easier to eat, and you'll find that it's easier to meet all of your guests' dietary needs when you go smorgasbord style.
If you plan to serve alcohol at your bash, you'll find that
it can get expensive fast. Consider having each guest bring their favorite
drink, especially if you're only hosting a smaller crowd. Not only does this
leave more room in your budget for items like food and New Year’s Eve décor,
but you'll ensure everyone has exactly what they want to drink.
Stick to Cheap New Year’s Eve décor
When it comes to New Year’s Eve décor, you don't need to go
crazy. Check out your local dollar store or party supply store for affordable
yet flashy items like balloons, streamers and confetti. You definitely want to
set the mood, but unless you're having a formal party, there's no need to get
fancy — or expensive.
Keep Your Guests Entertained
Drinks and your best appetizers may seem like enough to keep
the party going, but you've got to keep your guests engaged until at least midnight.
Plan some games, show a movie, host a video game tournament or play music to
ensure no one gets bored.
Have a Midnight Plan
No matter how early your party starts, midnight is the magic
moment. Have a plan in place to mark the start of the year. You might have a
ball drop playing on TV or a large timer that allows you and your guests to
count down on your own. Whatever you plan, just make sure it draws attention to
Have a Post-Midnight Plan
You'll also want to make sure your guests know what to
expect after midnight. Will the party continue, or is it time to go home? If
you do serve alcohol, make sure each guest has a way to get home safely, be it
a car service or a sober designated driver. Consider the fact that some guests
may need to spend the night. Get blankets, pillows and air mattresses ready
ahead of time.
