Do you love the holidays? If you have a plan to host a New Year's Eve party but are not sure of what the right steps to take, no need to be worried. We have a few New Year party style tips to help you host the best New Year party even if you are doing so for the first time. Let’s look through the tips below!
Where to Host
When looking to host a New Year's Eve party, there are no rules that state you cannot have your party at your house. However, if you are looking to host a New Year party in a venue outside your home, you will need to start searching for a place way ahead of time. Looking for a venue a long time before you host your New Year party might seem like a lot. It, however, should not be taken lightly as planning ahead will save you a lot of stress.
If, however, you fall into the category of people that do not mind hosting parties at home, you will need to get your home ready. When getting your home ready, make sure you put away anything fragile while people dance in your living room.
As soon as you make up your mind about the number of people that you want at your party, you can go on to print tickets; it also makes it a lot easier for you to prepare. Beyond just printing invites, if you want your party to be classy, you have to ensure that a professional company handles the printing of your invites.
If you want your party to stand out from the rest, personalize it with decorations. A simple way to personalize your party is basing your party on a theme or choose a cohesive color scheme like black and gold.
For easy decorations, use foil balloons to spell out 2020, PARTY, or HAPPY NYE! You can choose 16" tall or 40" tall balloons depending on how much space you have. Create an easy backdrop for photo booth with sequined tablecloth like this one or use foil curtains to decorate. Provide free props for your guests or print a few from Pinterest that you and your guests can decorate during the party.
Set up a bar cart so guests can easily serve themselves, or ask guests to bring drinks to share so there’s plenty for everyone!
Get Games Ready
Parties are famous for having lots of drinks and music. While it might seem like dancing and having drinks is all most parties are about, there is more than can be done at a New Year party. You can spice up your New Year party with lots of fantastic games. Children are not the only ones that enjoy playing games; adults also enjoy playing games.
A few ideas is to create games to share your resolution (or Two Resolutions and a Lie), advice for future, or things you learned this year - you'll just need some pens and paper! If you're creating a photo booth then your game could be voting on which photo prop is your favorite. There are also board games like Apples to Apples or What Do You Meme? that will help you pass the time before midnight!
Get an Entertainer to Thrill Your Guests
Every year, people host New Year parties. Although these many parties might be fun while they last, they are soon forgotten. If you want to host a New Year party that your guests remember for a long time, you can spice it up by getting entertainers to give your guests a lovely time. Depending on your budget, you could get a comedian, a live band to entertain your guests, or even a tarot card reader - who wouldn't want to know what's happening in the new year! e.
Personalized Favors and Gifts
If you are not running on a tight budget, you can ensure that everyone that makes it to your party goes home with a gift. If you have lots of people at your New Year party, you might want to give guests inexpensive gifts. However, if you took out time to invite just a few people to your New Year party, you might consider getting them personalized gifts.
You do not have to spend a lot of money on getting this done. You can do this on a reasonably small budget if you give your guests handcrafted gifts as well. For bigger parties, simply gift candy treats like Hersey's Kisses in gold eye-catching favor boxes, and they will look super cute on the tables, adding to the decorations!
Think of the Comfort of Your Guests
There are various types of New Year parties. Some of them last a couple of hours, others last very long and extend late into the night and the early hours of the morning. If your party lasts until the early hours of the morning, you will need to consider making accommodation ready for your guests. Will the guests at your party be coming from your neighborhood? If yes, you might not need to worry about making accommodation ready as they can always get back to their homes even when it late at night. However, if the guests at your party do not come from your neighborhood and will not be able to get home when the party closes late, you will need to make accommodation ready for them. While making space for them to pass the night, you have to consider what their needs will be for the night.
