Tips for Planning a Spectacular New Year's Party

 New Year's is the perfect opportunity to throw a party. End the holiday season with a bang and usher in a new year full of potential. However, planning a spectacular New Year's party can be an intimidating prospect. There are many things to consider, and the stress can take a toll!. If you're trying to plan the best New Year's party this year, consider these five tips to make it an easier process for yourself.

Choose a One-of-a-Kind Theme

Giving your party a theme not only makes it more festive but also makes it easier to plan. You'll want everything you purchase to fit the theme, which will narrow down your choices. However, you should choose a unique theme for your party. Something fun and completely different will get people excited to celebrate with you. So, take some time to brainstorm ideas. Then, settle on a theme before doing anything else. Your theme will help guide the rest of the planning process.

Purchase Party Supplies from Local Businesses

There are nearly 28 million small businesses in the United States, and the health of all of them depends on the support of their communities. Make a point of purchasing your party supplies from a local business. You'll get the satisfaction of supporting a small business in your community with money that might have otherwise gone to a big box store. Plus, buying from a local business likely means you'll have more unique and fun options to choose from. As a result, your party will look completely different from those that all bought their supplies at the same stores.

Hire a Caterer with a Unique Menu

If you're hosting a big party, you'll want to get it catered. The average catered party size is between 100 and 250 people, and the caterer will supply the food for all of them. Choose a caterer that offers a unique menu. If it fits with your theme, even better! Unique food options will make your party more exciting. People will want to try new foods or just have something that's a little different from the usual party fare.

Set Up a Decorative Wall for Pictures

People are going to want to take pictures while they're at your party. Set up a decorative wall so that people can take these pictures against a fun background. By setting this up, you'll be encouraging people to take group pictures and make an event of it. Base it on your party's theme and go wild with the decorations, providing a colorful, exciting backdrop and fun props. While candid shots are great, adding in some intentionally silly or scripted photos provides guests with another fun activity that they can use to remember the party after.

Hire a Driving Service for a Safe Way Home

On New Year's in 2020, the California Highway Patrol arrested someone for a DUI every four minutes. This came to 491 arrests, all of which caught someone whose driving could have ended in tragedy. Make sure that you give your guests a safe way to get home after the party. If a driving service is easily available, people are less likely to attempt to drive home drunk. This will help avoid any car accidents afterward and keep everyone safe.

With these five tips, you're on your way to planning a spectacular New Year's party. Plan ahead for both safety and fun, and then find the most unique and exciting ways to jazz up the standard holiday party. If you keep these tips in mind, party planning will be far less stressful. You'll then be able to enjoy the actual party so much more.
