Bet you weren’t expecting business advise in this “Top New Year’s Eve Party Ideas” blog, but here it is – a little added bonus. I see this as being beneficial for small business owners as well as just your average “Joe”. We could all use a few financial tips, the most important one being to always have cash on hand.

3 Key Takeaways Featuring Top New Year’s Eve Party Ideas:

  1. Make it fun!
  2. Be prepared.
  3. Have a designated driver.

We are all busy, so New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to relax and unwind. Invite your family and friends over to celebrate and be sure to make it fun with a festive drink or an activity. You don’t have to overdo it. Keep it simple. Be prepared by having 2.5 all-purpose glasses per guest. It’s bound to happen…people chat, move around and lose sight of their glass. The last thing you want to do as a hostess is wash dishes during your party. One of the most important tips is to ALWAYS have a designated driver, which doesn’t so much pertain to you as the hostess, but more to your guests. It is best to plan this out ahead of time. Get the Uber app on your phone so you will have it when you need it.

Big Take Away – Keep It Light And Fun!

As a hostess, you should be cognizant of the fact that your guests may be going through a difficult time, but they are not coming to your party to dwell on the negative. They want to have a good time, so no matter what, keep it light and fun! To liven it up a bit, sugar the rims of your party glasses. Take some super fine sugar and dye it a color. Add coloring to the kids’ milk and get some neon straws. Ring in the New Year with some positive energy!
