You've invited everyone over to your home for New Year's Eve, and now it's time to start getting into the nitty-gritty of party planning and preparation. Hosting a New Year's party can be understandably stressful: People have high expectations about how they want to ring in the new year, and good preparation can mean the difference between a hopping party and a drunken, disorganized mess. Here are some tips to help you provide the best experience possible for your guests:
- Make a list. As in any situation where there are a lot of tasks to get done at once, it's helpful to make a list of everything that needs to be in place by the time December 31 rolls around. Having a list will also help you delegate tasks to friends and family more easily because you'll be able to keep track of the total volume of work that needs to be done.
- Figure out food presentation. It's wise to provide snacks for guests at a New Year's party, especially with the holiday's reputation for excessive drinking, but there's a difference between tossing some chips on the table in the bag and presenting a variety of snacks in a thoughtful way. This brushed stainless steel bowl is a great option for serving nuts, chips or any other snack of your choosing.
- Decorate your entryway. Not only is adding some festive flair to your front door a good way to get guests in the holiday mood, it's also practical for letting your guests know which house or apartment the party is being held in. For those with front walkways, place tea lights leading up to the door for a warm, welcoming ambiance right from the start of the event.
