New Year’s Eve is a great time to gather with friends. Nothing beats ringing in a brand new year full of promise and excitement surrounded by your favorite people. But you don’t want to throw just any party. This year’s get-together needs to be something spectacular. Here are some ideas to host the best NYE party your friends have seen!
Pick a Fun Theme
Party planning is much easier when you have a theme to follow. This allows you to coordinate the decorations, food, drinks and games all around a particular topic to add some fun to the night. If you have never planned a themed party before you may be stuck for ideas. Here re a few to get you started.
A Hollywood theme lends itself well to New Year’s Eve since it sports a lot of gold and glitz! Encourage guests to dress as their favorite celebrity or in red carpet attire. Be sure to include plenty of movie-related games and picture taking opportunities.
Black Light Party
Nothing says New Year’s fun like a black light party. Turn your home into the best club in town by renting some black lights and handing out glow-in-the-dark necklaces. Turn off all the lights in your house, hang white fabrics and turn on the black light. Everything will be glowing!
An Old Fashioned Bonfire
Turn your backyard into a bonfire party! You can use a store-bought fire pit or create an open-air pit away from any buildings. Since you will already be outside at midnight, add some sparkly fun to the evening with sparklers and confetti poppers for all to enjoy as you ring in the New Year together.
Offer Tasty Cocktails
Champagne is obviously a must for your New Year's Eve party, so make sure you have a few bottles on deck. But don't just rely on the bubbly. Your guests will appreciate it if there's a nice variety of cocktails to choose from. Look up some signature cocktails online and serve those, or simply put out a self-service bar with some choice liquors, mixers and garnishes. Just don't forget about all your friends who will be serving as the designated driver for the evening! Make sure you have non-alcoholic options available.
Decorate in Gold
Black and gold are the standard NYE colors, and they should definitely be incorporated into your decor for the party. Hang some string lights around the room, have gold and black balloons floating throughout the room, and add some sparkly gold decorations to the bar to make it stand out. If you want to get crafty, there are some great DIYs online for origami decorations you can make with shimmery papers.
