How to Host a Party on New Year’s Eve

So you want to host a party on New Year’s Eve? You must be feeling pressured right now. Don't let the stress of party planning get in the way of your holiday cheer because we have made a list of tips to help you plan a rocking celebration! Read the article below to find out more.

Tip # 1: To go BIG or not to go big?

When planning any sort of gathering, planning the number of invite guest is very important. This will give you an idea on where to hold the party and just how much to prepare.

Intimate celebrations are always fun and easy to plan. Having a small number of guests mean you have the option to do it in the comforts of your own home over dinner and conversations then call it a night.

A larger party, on the other hand, would require you to choose a venue that can not only accommodate your guests but will also give them enough elbow room to go around and socialize. When deciding on the number of guests, never bite off more than you can chew or you might just end up a party pooper.

Tip #2: Make sure there is enough sitting room.

As a host, your main priority is to make sure everyone is comfortable during the party. Make sure you have enough seats and tables for everyone when they want to grab a bite or rest their feet for a bit.

Tip # 3: Think of a theme!

If you think you’ve seen the last of themed parties when you were in high school, think again. Having a theme for your party makes it a whole lot easier to plan and makes the whole event look cohesive. 

When it comes to your party’s theme, you can go as subtle or as loud as you want – let your imagination run wild! If subtle is more your thing, you can choose a color scheme for the whole party and even request your guests to come in color coded attires to match!

There are tons of DIY tips online that can help you decorate your place without breaking the bank. Channel your inner Martha Stewart and get crafting.

Tip #4: The FOOD.

When it comes to parties, the food is always the star of the show. As a host, you can opt to cook the meals yourself, hire a caterer or ask guests to bring some and turn your party into a potluck.

Whichever way you decide to take care of the food, make sure there is enough for everyone. Nothing ruins a party faster than an empty spread and a shortage on drinks.

Tip #5: Entertainment.

Don't expect your guests to entertain themselves at YOUR party. Think of games you can play that can help break the ice the beginning and make sure there is music playing in the background just enough to set the mood.


There you have it, some important tips to help you plan your New Year’s Eve bash. Don't forget to have fun – that is the purpose of having the party in the first place.
