Once the parcels have been unwrapped, the turkey demolished and the traditional board game won, the focus then turns to the biggest night of the party calendar, as the countdown to 2016 begins.
So to make sure your New Year starts with fireworks, a house full of party guests and champagne toasts, party planners, listen up, we’ve put together a list of the top seven ideas to make sure this New Year’s Eve is the best one yet.
Nothing screams fun more than donning your new fancy dress attire and partying the night away with your guests. Whether you’re a hat wearer or an all-out head-to-toe fancy dresser, give your get-together a theme this New Years and make it a party they won’t forget.
Why not go for a White New Year’s Eve party, A Bond 007 shindig or pre-resolution bash?
Whether it’s 5, 10 or 100 guests you’re looking to invite this New Year’s Eve, there’s a venue to suit everyone, but you better book soon if you’re looking to hire a venue for the special occasion. If you’re holding the event at home, make sure everything that could potentially receive a spillage (bad luck if you’ve got white carpets!) is protected. After all, you can use the savings of having it at home to splurge on even more event furniture and decorations. If, however, you’d rather let someone else clear up the morning after, then hiring a hall, a restaurant or a large-scale event space will cater for your hoards of guests and give you more room to dance the night away.
3. Event Furniture
When it comes to kitting out the venue, big or small, you can’t beat selecting from a range of chairs, tables, linen and even a mobile bar to make a themed venue look spectacular. Whatever the style and atmosphere you’re trying to create, choose from a wide selection of coffee, poseur and banquet tables to add a touch of glamour and luxury to proceedings. Or, if it’s stunning table linen, runners and centrepieces you’re after, we’ve got a selection of colours, fabrics and textures to spruce up a round or rectangular table. Complete the look with a fantastic variety of both traditional and contemporary chairs. Why not seat your guests and the event furniture next to an illuminating bar for the best seat in the house.
Transform your venue in an instance and give your guests the welcome they deserve. Balloons galore, banners as you arrive and bursts of colour makes sure the party gets in full swing and sets the mood for the entire evening. Whatever, theme, colour and style you’re after, make a jaw-dropping first impression.
5. Food and Drink
If, when your guests enter that venue door, you wow them with a banquet table full of their favourite nibbles and drinks, your party’s bound to make it onto their top 5 list. Go for prosecco and lobster, cocktails and hot food or juices and sarnies - just not too much that they can’t make it onto the dance floor later.
6. Fun and Games
Regress back to your childhood and embrace the fun, the silliness and the good time had by all with a competitive board game, interactive digital workout or complete adrenaline-rush from bouncy castles and ball pits.
The best place to be by far on New Year’s Eve has got to be on the dancefloor, making shapes to hours’ worth of celebratory and fun floor fillers. If you’re getting together the set list yourself, make sure you mix it up with a collection of old and new tunes to keep the party going way beyond midnight. If you’ve got a DJ or a designated music maestro, just make sure you get your requests in early to avoid disappointment.
