1) HollywoodThink red carpets, stanchions and ropes, formal gowns, and lots of photo ops. Movie reel cookies, Twizzlers to represent red ropes, popcorn, and lots of martinis are great food ideas to serve. For party favors you could hand out movie clapboard photo frames so your guests an always remember what a great time they had!
2) Bubbles and BrewsIs it really a New Year’s Eve party if there isn’t champagne? How about a champagne themed party? With champagne colored decorations, specialty champagne cocktails, and champagne cupcakes, your night is sure to be a “popping” good time! You could even have champagne glasses your attendees can decorate and take home at the end of the night.
3) Bon Fire PartyIf you would rather host a more casual event, a bonfire party may be a perfect fit for you and your friends. Sitting around a warm fire, popping fireworks, and looking up at the night sky is a fun, low-key way to spend your evening as the previous year goes by. Spiked hot chocolate, s’mores, and hot dogs are easy to make for this relaxing night. S’mores kits or trail mix packages are cute take homes for your friends to leave with.
4) Pajama PartyAnother simple to plan idea is for all of your guests to come in their pajamas. This is such an adorable opportunity for your group to stay warm and cozy while still having a wonderful time at your party. Put out plenty of blankets and pillows so everyone can snuggle in comfortably while the countdown is happening. Snacks are always important at a party. Keep it simple with lots of appetizers and finger foods. You can set up a DIY table for decorating throw pillows or eye masks for each person to make and take home.
Whether you’re hosting the party or attending someone else’s, these parties are meant for making lasting memories for years to come. If you have a unique theme idea please let us know in the comments!
