Exciting Party Ideas For New Year’s Eve
Identify A Fun Theme
This time, think about organizing a different kind of party which is fun and creative. Try to identify a theme which will require some kind of effort and creativity in dressing up. Examples include toddler’s birthday party, Bollywood stars of 1950s, the world of nymphs, etc. Encourage the participants to dress up as per the theme.
For example, if, you are keeping toddler’s birthday party theme, ask the invitees to dress up like toddlers and wear their hair in childish style.
Decorate The Venue
Once, you have identified the theme; decorate the venue as per the theme. For toddler’s birthday party, decorate the venue with steamers, balloons, cartoon posters’, etc. In the background, hang a big banner, announcing “Happy New Year”. For other themes also, go creative and decorate the venue to set the mood for the party.
Arrange some games, which are in sync with the theme. For toddler’s party theme, arrange games like tug of war for men versus women, toffee bobbing, etc. For other themes, think of interesting games.
For example, for Bollywood theme, you can arrange an extempore in which every participant will mimic on famous dialogues of the actors/actresses. Include a variety of games which include men and women or pitch them against each other. This arrangement, kind of soars temperature of the party room and makes it exciting and fun.
Keep Your Menu Simple
If you want to enjoy the party as a host then never get into elaborate menus which require you to stand in the kitchen for long hours.
Get some microwave friendly finger foods and readymade stuff which can be easily served. Examples include sandwiches, pastries, pizzas, pastas, salads, etc. Another benefit of finger foods is that guests can enjoy them while playing games also.
Arrange For A Rocking DJ
No New Year party is complete without fast and loud music (Of course by loud, we don’t mean deafening!). Arrange for a nice DJ and once the games are over, invite all the invitees to the dance floor.
While dancing, throw a competition. Tell the participants that the couple which will dance continuously will win a fabulous prize. You can also mix some interesting games in between the dances like newspaper dance, balloon dance, etc.
Right when the clock strikes 12, cut a grand cake and welcome New Year with aplomb. Share the cake pies with everyone with a bit of creams smeared over their faces.
Remember, celebration should be fun but not brash. When you try to smear cream on somebody’s face and they refuse to let you do so, politely say OK and move from there.
