New Year’s Eve parties are perfect opportunities to gather with those you care for most and create memories. All confetti and streamers aside, these festive occasions allow people to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments and struggles in preparation for what’s to come in the new period.
But of course, there’s no better way to part with the old and welcome the new than with a fun celebration. That said, here are five New Year’s Eve party ideas to increase the fun and ring in this exciting time in style!
Introduce a New Party Theme
Celebrations of any kind are fun but think of all the creative possibilities in store when you add a theme! A ’70s disco bash isn’t complete without a dance floor to showcase your moves or a disco ball to illuminate the setting.
If visiting older eras interests you, take a journey to the roaring twenties where flapper dresses and long string pearls were all the rage with the appropriate celebration.
Set Up an Elegant Cocktail Bar
Ringing in the new year isn’t complete without a toast! Mix things up by setting up an elegant cocktail bar that allows your guests to incorporate twists to well-known drinks or create new ones like a cotton candy/champagne blend.
Bring Out the Games
Until the ball drops, there is a long while of waiting and celebrating in store. But sometimes, the party has its downtime that serves as the perfect opportunity for a couple of board game sessions.
Bringing out the party favorites or asking guests to bring their preferred card games is a fantastic way to include entertainment and appeal to the masses.
Have a Festive Backdrop With Props
Most people enjoy a great photo op! Set aside a designated area for guests to snap their best shots by using glittering streamers and balloons to create your backdrop. You don’t want to forget the photo props with these fun ideas.
Make It a BYOA Festivity
While most people are aware of a BYOB, BYOA festivities are just as fun! Bring-Your-Own-Appetizer fests enable guests to share their favorite hors d’oeuvres and keep you from having to spend time planning a menu.
New Year’s Eve parties are classic celebrations that commemorate fresh starts and new beginnings that deserve the proper welcome. With these exciting New Year’s Eve party ideas, you can increase the fun of your celebration and make the occasion one to remember.
