Tips For A Successful New Year’s Eve Party

From the Pope’s historic visit to the Presidential race, 2015 has been quite an eventful year. However, it’s time to say goodbye to another unforgettable year and say hello to 2016. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning to ring in the New Year with your friends and family.


Brainstorming is crucial to the success of your party. It helps you generate ideas, stay organized, set your budget, and think outside the box. Whether it’s through mind-mapping, collaborating, or browsing Pinterest for quirky ideas, the goal is to create an unforgettable night!

Consider Your Budget

Once you’ve defined your spending limit, it’s time to start implementing the ideas from your brainstorm. This includes choosing the best event venue, food and drink options, decorations, activities, and more.

Choose The Right Venue

This is the most crucial element to planning a successful party. Would your guests have more fun at a house party, special event venues, or locations open to the public? Once you’ve decided on a venue, you can start planning the fun stuff!

Consider The Weather

Is it warm or cold where you’re throwing the party? Warmer areas are perfect for outdoor venues, while colder areas are better for indoor venues. However, if you live in a colder area, you might consider getting a heated tent rental to offer a cozy environment for your guests.

Have Food Available Throughout The Night

Since it’s New Year’s Eve, there is a good chance your guests will be consuming alcohol. With that being said, make sure water and light snacks are available throughout the night such as chips and dip, shrimp, mini sliders, and pizza poppers.

Have A Midnight Champagne Toast

Everyone loves a champagne toast! Make sure you have enough champagne to go around to ring in the new year! If you want to get creative, have a champagne bar available for your guests to create their own cocktails! Here, guests can add things to their drink including strawberries, orange juice, etc.

Don’t Forget The Party Essentials

Party hats, confetti, and noise makers are New Year’s Eve staples. Have these items available for all of your guests to enjoy.

Last But Not Least, HAVE FUN!

New Year’s Eve is the last day of the year and a great time to celebrate with your closest friends and family. Enjoy your time with each and every one of them.

Happy New Year!
