The New Year is coming, and there’s no one more excited than us! We have been through a lot these past years – from the Covid lockdowns to the Coronavirus itself, and from the new normal of working from home to adjusting to the reality of not seeing our loved ones! It’s all too true, then, that we are grateful for the year that has just passed – and for surviving with most of our sanity intact. But kidding aside, many of us are planning a big New Year’s celebration this year – after all, it’s our chance to usher in the New Year with our friends and loved ones again. But how do you celebrate the New Year in style? Here are some great ideas for a New Year’s celebration for you.
- Have a jar filled with everyone’s New Year’s resolution
If you are having a lot of guests and party-goers for New Year’s, why not place an empty jar in the foyer or entryway of your home or venue and place a stack of pens/pencils beside it with some pieces of paper? That way, everyone who enters can pick a pen and paper, write down their New Year’s resolutions, and put them in their pockets or purses. Then, when the evening has finished, and everything has gone down, they can reach into their pockets or purses and remember the New Year’s resolution they made. Who knows, they may even find it possible to stick to them this year!
- Have a brilliant champagne bottle party favour
One way to make your party more memorable is by giving away party favours – and what’s better than mini champagne bottles? You can create your labels (or have your kids create them with you) or have a professional do it. Either way, your guests will love it – and they can continue the party when they get home.
- Play the perfect party game
If you want a party game that will definitely get everyone drinking, play the ‘Drink If’ game, as confirmed by expert party planners like https://oasisevents.co.uk/. This game is perfect because everyone drinks – and nobody will come up with any excuse not to drink! For instance, everyone can ‘drink if’ they took a nap before the party, and everyone can ‘drink if’ they are wearing black, if they took a selfie in the last hour, and so on. The best thing about the game is that you can print out some cards and come up with your own customisations, depending on the group you are with.
- Give everyone a chance to make a cocktail
If you have an open bar at your New Year’s eve party (and it’s highly recommended that you do!), you can give everyone a chance to shine as a bartender by allowing them to mix their cocktails! To avoid a messy and disorganised bar at the end of the night, ask anyone who would like to create their cocktail to submit their names and wait to be called. Then as everyone makes their signature drinks, get others to be judges and compare.
- Watch the fireworks
Then, when everyone’s ready, go outside and watch the fireworks, and ready some sparklers of your own! Look back on the year that was and get ready for the new year and new beginning.
