Sometimes, inviting some friends and family over is the best way to ring in the new year. If you’re hosting a NYE party, make sure your event goes smoothly by following these tips!
Keep it Simple
The best NYE party is a success because of the people. Focus on spending time with friends and family and don’t stress out too much about the food and drinks. To alleviate some of the stress that comes with party planning, you can make your NYE party a potluck by asking every guest to bring a dish (or drink) to share.
Have Some Games Handy
The highlight of the party is the countdown to midnight, but if you have guests arriving around dinnertime, there could be a lot of time to fill. Make sure you pull out some party games (think Cards Against Humanity or The Game of Things) to fill the time.
Did you know that Netflix has a fake countdown to midnight so that you can celebrate with your kids and get them to bed early? If you have kids at your party, it might not be a bad idea to do an earlier celebration.* In addition, use pre-made playlists from a streaming music service—like Spotify—instead of spending hours trying to curate your own NYE playlist.
Please have a plan in place to get everyone home safely at the end of the night. Encourage your guests to arrive and leave together in a cab, Uber or with the OC Transpo. Remember that on new year’s eve, bus service is free and runs into the early hours of the morning on January 1st.
