The holiday season is filled with merry celebrations, including welcoming the New Year ahead and there’s no better way to celebrate the dawn of a New Year than being surrounded by all your loved ones. As the host of the party, it is your duty to ensure that the guests enjoy the celebrations as much as you, starting from the atmosphere to the food to even having entertainment and more.
All of these are part of your planning process. While planning the perfect New Year’s party can be a daunting one, it’s not all that hard. Here’s a few basic things you need to keep in mind when putting together a wonderful New Year party.
Venue – a place to party
Be it at home or a venue elsewhere, your first and foremost step should be on deciding and fixing the venue. While many often keep it at home, you can also find a New Year party venue in Melbourne that makes for a great spot. Once the venue is all set, you’re ready to move on to the rest of your planning ingredients.
Welcome Drinks – warm hospitality
Nothing says ‘welcome’ better than greeting your guests with the most delicious and appealing welcome drinks. You can opt for drinks such as soft drinks, tonics, sodas, etc. While you can serve them in basic cups, you can add a twist and make it look more appealing for the extra party touch.
Food – good food, good party
Having a bad food experience can bring down the whole partying vibe and mood and as the host, that’ll go on your record. Therefore, it’s important that you cater good food starting from snacks, to main dishes to even the deserts. A whole part of partying is enjoying and celebrating with good food. Keep your menu interesting and yum!
Games– fun filled time
From board games to drinking games such as beer pong to even casino games, there are so many ways to bring forth fun ways to pass time while also enjoying everyone’s company. Planning games can help keep your guests entertained and provide them with a fun filled time with easy going challenges.
Music – dance the year away
Another must have entertainment at any party, especially a New Year celebratory one, is music! Apart from playing in the background and keeping the party upbeat and alive, it even gives the guests a chance to dance the night away. You can create your own playlist, however keep an open mind when doing so as not everyone enjoys the same genre.
Decorations – the insta worthy scene
From New Year theme balloon to table decors to even fun props, create an atmosphere that’s insta worthy and your party will be the talk of the town. Depending on your creative plans and budget, you can either go all out on the decorations or keep it simple. The latter is often the much more preferred choice!
Even though you are the host, don’t forget to enjoy the party too!
