The best party can be a subjective concept much like we all enjoy having fun in different ways. However, when it comes to New Year’s Eve, if you don’t spend it the right way, you could end up missing out.
If you’re a brave soul who has taken it upon themselves to host one of the hottest shindigs in town, we’ve got the ultimate guide for you.
You can celebrate yet another trip around the sun with the people you love and who supported you throughout. It doesn’t have to be snazzy but it sure can be super wholesome and fun.
Here are tips from planning to catering, to make it the event that everyone will remember for a long time.
Get your props ready
From DIY noisemakers to 2020 party hats and glasses, go all out. Make them from scratch or buy them in bulk from a wholesale store but make sure everyone has one. This is one of the most important parts of NYE parties and you have to get everyone posing in them for a photograph.
Make your own photo booth
Speaking of making memories, the best place to make them is in a photo booth set-up right in your living room. Set it up in front of a bare wall and hang a sequin backdrop, and set up your tablet or iPhone on a tripod. You and all your guests can pose against the backdrop just like celebrities.
Get lots of balloons
You might not get to drop the ball, but you can always drop lots of balloons from your ceiling. This is super cute and fun and can be a celebratory way to ring in the New Year.
Make a memorable menu
You can’t throw a party without serving the right drinks and the most wholesome food. A bombastic menu is the best way to make sure your guests are happy and high on good energy to ring in the New Year.
Include wholesome foods like our stuffed potatoes and to-die-for devil crabs. You can serve them as a main, appetizer or even as a side for a more elaborate meal.
This year we suggest large punchbowls with lots of fruity ice. Our passion fruit punch is a hit at all the parties and you can spike it with rum just a little before the party starts.
