So youâ€™re throwing a New Years Eve party â€“ now what? As the largest holiday party of the year, you need to plan, prepare, and get ready for the party, long before it happens. Weeks before the party hits, throw out the New Years invitations to friends and family, coworkers and associates, and anyone else that should attend. This gives people enough time to get prepared, especially if you throw a themed party.
One of the best aspects of a New Years party is this: it gives you a reason to celebrate, but it has no restricting themes. Christmas parties, for example, have the whole red, white, and green theme, so it is difficult to purchase themed party supplies outside of those colors. With a New Years Eve party, however, you have complete and utter creative freedom.
With the New Years invitations sent out, youâ€™re going to need some tableware and utensils. Hungry guests ruin parties, and hungry, messy guests are even worse. Instead, snag some disposable tableware for your evening celebration. Guests can toss spent plates into the trash and continue with their business.
When guests arrive, hand out noisemakers. There is no celebration quite like New Years Eve â€“ people go bananas for the concept of starting anew. With the provided noisemakers, you are doing two things: 1) telling people it is all right to make noise, and 2) encouraging celebration.
To finalize the party environment, grab some balloons. String them up around the location, or hand them out to guests. If you have a ton of balloons at the end of the night, release them when the clock hits midnight.
