The very essential ingredients of a rocking party are fun, enthusiasm, and revelry. The next thing one should keep in mind is that a new year's party should be a celebration, and a get-together of close friends or family. So, it's time to think of some party ideas at home, and we'll help you do just that.
How To Plan Things
The planning part is very important to pull off a fun and successful party. Let us look at a few party essentials that are required to make the party a hit.
Instead of the age-old idea of toasting with just a glass of champagne, imagine bursting into a platter of baked pork chops, oysters Rockefeller, sautéed kale with mini-glazed donuts to follow along with Meyer lemon yogurt or chocolate sauce as dipping - all that a die-hard foodie lives for!
Such a counter grants a lot of liberty to your guests to do whatever they want with their Bloody Mary or the Red Eye or the Long Island or all time hits like Martini Bianco and Gordon's Gin. Such cocktail bars can take the celebrations to a new level by combining sparkling wine or vodka with a selection of purees, pear, orange or any other flavoring.
Look for a DJ package that offers lighting, strobes, and fog effects, that simply enhance the party experience. Set up for a magnificent dance floor where all party freaks can unleash the animal within and make this a memorable new year's eve.
Innovative homemade decorations can have a deeper impact than the extra-ordinarily expensive ones. For instance, spray-painted pots with sprouts planted add to the decor of the tables.
▪ Don't let the gifts get out of your mind. The gifts that you can generally present to you loved ones can ideally be handmade customized stuff. You can write love poems or best compliments on the gift wrappers. If you cannot choose a gift, dry fruits or chocolates will suffice; they make for ideal party gift ideas for kids.
How About a Theme Party
Another add-on would be to have a party theme. For instance, it may be a pirate party or an open terrace party with the best view in town, or a pool party for your guests to have a splash! Let us discuss a few popular themes which can make up great party ideas for adults.
▪ Masquerade Party: These are one of the most fun-filled parties, as everyone slips into a new character without requiring to wear a full-on costume, and there's a lot of mystery in the air too. You can introduce a few champagne-based cocktails like Black Velvet and Happy New Year to add to the fever of the New Year's day.
▪ Celebrity Theme: Here, guests are asked to dress like their favorite celebrities. Celebrity fancy dress competitions or mimicry competitions can follow eventually.
When The Party Begins
As the party begins, the mood will start building up and the spirits will reach their peaks when the clock strikes twelve. Keeping your guests occupied in celebrations and ensuring no dull moment is a tough task, specially when alcohol begins to take its toll. Here's how one can achieve it.
All scrolls are then mixed in a bowl and the host reads out random resolutions for the guests to guess who wrote them.
▪ As one final treat, see off the guests with fresh-baked croissant and sticky bun inside a nice pastry bag for the new year's first morning. Stamp the gift bags with a 'Thank You' or 'Happy New Year'. This sweet parting present will be well appreciated.
As we part ways, we hope this collection of ideas help in making your new year's eve much more fun and one of the most memorable events ever. Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year.
