With the year 2017 set to begin, it’s time to share memories with friends and family. It’s time to gear up for the New Year’s eve, which is one of the most exciting times of the year. Many of you must have already started looking for the ideas to throw a dazzling and classy party for your loved ones. Considering the same, we have come up with five party ideas to make this New Year’s eve memorable for you and your friends.
Trust us! Planning a New Year’s eve party can be simple as long as you have the basics— noisemakers, party hats, confetti, a specialty drink, light snacks, and fun goody bags with hot chocolate in a Togo cup for your guests to enjoy on the way out.
To assist you better, here are five ideas to add the entertainment factor to your party.
Choose an entertaining theme: Choosing a theme will facilitate you in making decisions related to decoration, food, and games. But make sure to choose the theme inline to your guest list.
Suggestion 1: Decorate your room with 80s movies and actors posters. You can ask your guests to go for an outfit similar to trend. And don’t mess up with the music. It should also be of that era.
Suggestion 2: If you want your party to be the classy one, then you can go for the black and white ballroom party theme. Deck your house in chic black, white, silver and gold pieces, such as candles, balloons, and bunting. Ask your guests to support black or white evening dresses.
Countdown decoration: Don’t miss it! This gives the feel of entering a new year.
Suggestion 1: Write an hourly countdown on balloons—11 pm, 10 pm, 9 pm, and so on—and pop them as midnight approaches.
Festive food: Food at the party should also give that festive feel to all your guests.
Suggestion: Add cute little toppers into champagne Jell-O shots. You can also add sorbet into your champagne glasses for a fizzing, sweet good time. Soak strawberries in chocolate flavored vodka, for a sweet treat when the clock strikes midnight.
Ensure entertainment: Entertainment is essential! Don’t forget to plan a few games to break up the evening and keep the good times rolling.
Suggestion: The best games for the New Year eve are those which can make you relive your 2016. All you need to do is prepare cards that prompt guests to describe a moment of their 2016, such as the hardest they laughed, their best kiss, etc. Then, take turns picking out of the jar and sharing your memories.
Ensure safety of guests: Last but not the least, ensuring your guests’ safety is your responsibility. As the party gets over, don’t let your friends drive home impaired! Research shuttle services in your area for those friends or make an arrangement for them to stay at your place overnight.
