Throw an Epic New Year’s Eve Party

New Year Celebration

Want to host a New Year’s Eve party but not sure where to begin? Give your friends an experience they’ll never forget with our guide to throwing an epic NYE party.

  • Creating the ultimate NYE party atmosphere begins with the theme. From the invites to the décor down to the dress code—the theme sets the tone and lays the foundation for a memorable night.

  • Have fun activities on hand to engage your guests. For example, card and dice games are great for parties. Or have guests write down their resolutions or predictions for the new year.

  • Signature cocktails are great to batch ahead of time. Always have plenty of water on hand, and don’t forget mock-tails for designated drivers.

  • It wouldn’t be a party without delicious bites on hand. From finger food to easy one-pot entrees—you can get as creative and elaborate as you like!

  • Music can make or break a party, so have a NYE playlist to match the energy of your gathering. If you have an eclectic crowd, round up song suggestions a few days before the party.

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in making sure everything is perfect, remember to mingle with your guests, take lots of pictures, and, most importantly, have fun!
