The New Year's party in our home is perhaps one of the most important throughout the year, so it would be spectacular if it remained in the memory of all your guests. Of course, these kinds of parties need good preparation so that everything goes well, so I bring you some tips when preparing you and your house for this celebration.
Tips for preparing the New Years Eve party
Consider the Number of People Attending The Party
The first thing you should do is a list of the people you are going to invite to the party because that number has to depend on the amount of space you have in your home to put everything you need and also that people do not feel overwhelmed by having a little place to move. You also have to consider that the more people you invite, the more money you will have to spend, so you should also know your budget.
Have a Set Schedule
Make sure the hours planned for the party are correct, keeping in mind that the most important part of the party is when the clock strikes midnight and the new year is welcomed, so you must make sure not to invite people very early. If your idea is a dinner, you can start around eight at night with drinks and very light snacks, serving dinner around nine. If it's a cocktail party, you can tell your guests to arrive at nine and serve them some appetizers to fill them up and some drinks.
Plan a Fun & Flashy Decor
As for the decoration itself, you should think about the type of party you want to organize. For example, you can choose only one color (red, for example) and decorate everything based on that color. Use special details such as napkins or Christmas salt shakers, original napkin rings, place the 12 grapes in an original holder, put names on the seats of each guest, they will give your party a personal and unforgettable touch.
Of course, essential will be the candles and the centerpieces. This time, they are less sober than on Christmas Eve and give color and charm to the table.
If you want a different decoration for your New Year party, do not put the usual balloons, but try to create an atmosphere with festive white lighting, contemporary decoration, and lots of candles. Set up several bowls and vases with sparkly decorations, tiny disco balls, and glass centerpieces.
Choose a Menu You Know Your Guests Will Enjoy
You are hosting the party, so it is your responsibility to make sure your guests are happy and having a great time! Depending on how well you know your guests, pick a few dishes you know they will enjoy. Don't forget to get festive with the dishes. This includes, holiday cookies, decorated desserts, unique colored beverages and a new year's themed main entrée.
When It's Time for the Big Celebration
You should remove the champagne bottles from the refrigerator about ten minutes before it is twelve. Hand out confetti (if you don't mind having your house filled), full glasses, and grape bags. We recommend that you serve the grapes in bags made with napkins, so that all those who want to put the seeds have a place at hand to deposit them. Turn off the lights, light lots of candles, turn on the radio or television and get ready to ring in the new year with your friends and family.
