It’s almost December, and while that means plenty of fun thanks to the holiday season we also have the New Year to look forward to!
Of course, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to celebrate everything great about 2016 and get ready for an even better 2017. And for even more fun, you should consider hosting a party complete with your friends and family. If you’re looking for some party ideas you’re in luck, because we’re here with some helpful tips and suggestions that will make your New Year’s Eve party the best ever.
1) Hire A Photographer
You know that your guests will be eager to snag photos for Instagram, Facebook and every other social media platform they use. And while we’d never discourage folks from snapping pics on their phones, why not give your guests something special thanks to a professional photographer? A professional photographer is the perfect person to capture your New Year’s Eve memories. And if you can’t get a pro, you can always designate one of your friends as the photographer for the night, ensuring someone’s ready to snap all those great party moments.
2) Craft A Special Midnight Cocktail
If you’re keeping up with tradition, you’ll prep guests with a glass of champagne for a midnight toast. But 2016 has been anything but traditional, meaning you should mix things up with something different. Consider mixing up a special midnight cocktail for your guests, giving them something unique to enjoy as 2017 begins.
3) Make It A “Bring Your Own Appetizer” Party
Finding food for your party can be a bit of a hassle. But it’ll be a lot easier if everyone brings a dish of their own! A BYOA — Bring Your Own Appetizer — party is a fun take on a traditional potluck, and will ensure that all your guests will enjoy something delicious as they celebrate the new year. It’ll also save you some money when it comes to providing food.
4) Don’t Forget To Decorate!
One of the biggest mistakes when it comes to New Year’s parties if forgetting to decorate. Sure, all your friends are gathering to celebrate and be together, but you want to make sure your party is a special occasion. And throwing up some decorations is the perfect way to make the night more memorable. Even throwing up some classic gold and silver tinsel will help your party shine. But check this list out for even more New Year’s Eve decoration tips.
