When people think of New Year's Eve festivities, parties are probably one of the first things to come to mind. Whether you're looking back at memories from the past year or looking forward to new ones coming up, parties are a great way to ring in the new year. Hosting a party can get stressful and overwhelming, so Solar Art has come up with a few tips to throwing a glamorous party to watch the ball drop at midnight with as little hassle as possible:
1. Food and drinks
Food and drinks are one of the most important parts of a party. No one wants to go to a party with food they don't eat and drinks they don't like. Having a variety is important, but capturing your party in food and drinks is really crucial. Having signature cocktails and food that goes along with the theme of the party makes the environment fun and the party run smoothly.
2. Theme or no theme?
Deciding on whether or not you want your party to have a theme can be a tough decision. A theme sets the tone for the evening and helps define your menu, drinks, and entertainment. While having a theme is a nice touch, it is not necessary. If you do decide to have a theme, some popular ones include masquerade, vintage or a decade party!
3. Setting the tone
Setting the tone and atmosphere for the party is also extremely important. Having a theme helps, but you can also buy New Year's Eve decorations to have around the house. You can incorporate your floors, windows and walls when thinking about decor. You can create a wall mural of Times Square to have as a back drop for a photo booth. The options are endless! Contact Solar Art to help create the perfect party so you can focus on being a great host!
4. Entertainment and activities
The anticipation of the ball dropping and the New Year starting will make for an exciting evening, but it is also important to keep your guests entertained up until then. Playing games like Cards Against Humanity, truth or dare or karaoke are easy ways to keep your guests laughing and having a great time !
Lastly, there is no good party without music. Whether you have a live band playing or Spotify on in the background, your guests will love listening to music that ties in with the party. Throwing a New Year's Eve party might seem overwhelming, but it really isn't so bad with a little planning and imagination.
