The year 2017 is coming to a close and everybody’s ready to pop the champagne and bid this challenging year adieu. If you’re thinking of welcoming the new year in a grand manner, there’s no better way of doing that than gathering loved ones for a stylish shindig.
Need help planning? Provided below are smart and savvy tips on how to make your New Year’s Eve party easy to pull off, but an absolute blast for everyone.
1. Go with a simple yet popular theme.
A theme always helps people to prepare better for an occasion. You make picking outfits way easier for your guests this way. Likewise, all the other components of the event automatically become a breeze to research about.
If you want less stressful party planning, picking a simple yet popular theme will definitely help.
2. Find party services that will allow you to just focus on being the hostess of the event.
If you want to be able to take part in all the fun of the night, as well as make sure that all your guests are properly accounted for, you need to be able to embrace the role of the hostess.
The smartest strategy to use so you can be in full party hostess mode for the night is to hire party services – catering, entertainment, decorating, and even emceeing services.
The pros will go about their tasks superbly that all you have to do is to check in on them every now and then to see how things are going.
3. Inject fun elements to the party.
Set your event apart by coming up with activities and placing in party features that your guests can enjoy. Great party games that will tie in well with your theme are Jeopardy, Solve a Mystery, Scavenger Hunt, and Trivial Pursuit.
For party features, don’t go without renting a photo booth. This party feature will make sure that your guests get a nice little souvenir from the event. Also, a photo booth is a source of fun. Most people like to take photos and they absolutely love it when they can get crazy with props, photo filters, and embellishments.
Another party feature to consider is a karaoke machine. The song renditions of both enchanting songstresses and talentless caterwaulers will keep the party atmosphere alive. Don’t worry too much about the “noise”— you’re welcoming the New Year with a bang, after all.
