New Years’ Eve Party Ideas
New Year’s Eve Party Ideas for Food
- Appetizers and Finger Foods: Skip the sit-down dinner in favor of keeping the party activities going and opt for setting out a buffet filled with easy appetizers everyone can snack on all night, such as raw veggies and dip, crackers and cheese, pretzels, and popcorn.
- Restaurant Delivery: If a more solid meal is on order, one can still make it a special night by ordering using a restaurant delivery service. This way, one can choose between a family-friendly restaurant for a casual setting or going big with an upscale restaurant for guests to enjoy before hitting the dance floor.
- Charcuterie Board: One can fill a wooden board with an assortment of favorite meats and cheeses.
- Countdown Cupcakes: This sweet treat can be easily put together by freezing the cupcakes with whipped vanilla frosting and separating the tops from chocolate sandwich cookies. On the cream side, one can use a black food decorating pen to draw a clock face and then wedge the cookie clock into the frosting. Festive and delicious!
New Year’s Eve Decorations
- For a New Year’s Eve atmosphere, one can find shiny metallics such as silver, gold, or glitter ribbon and hang these from light fixtures, doorways, lamps, mantels,s or ceilings.
- As New Year’s Eve is all about the lights and the glow, one can get some LED balloons that come with built-in LED lights, which blink with various fun effects. If this is not an option, then candles, fairy lights, and string lights are also great options for light.
- Add edible glitter to party drinks to make them pop under the light, or decorate them with colorful cocktail umbrellas, stirrers, and fresh fruit.
New Years’ Eve Party Themes
- Black-and-White Themed Party: Let guests know to come in formal or casual black and white attire, and provide black and white masks for some extra masquerading. One can also decorate the table with black and white cookies, chocolates, cupcakes, mini donuts, and candies.
- A Glitter Fest: Encourage guests to wear anything and everything that sparkles, such as bedazzled dresses and suits, sequined bow ties, hats, and shoes.
- Decades Party Theme: Guests can come dressed as a different decade. Here one can use New Years’ Eve decorations such as retro items like vinyl records, peace signs, and a disco ball.
New Years’ Eve Party Ideas for Games
- Two Resolutions and One Lie: This fun game for a New Year’s Eve party helps guests get acquainted quickly. Ask guests to think of two real resolutions they want for themselves and one that they don’t. Guests can go up one by one, and the crowd will have to guess which resolutions are true and which are not true.
- Write New Year’s Resolutions or Wishes: The host can prepare a jar with wish cards so everyone can pull out one card from the jar, write their resolutions on the cards, and keep them in their pocket. Encourage guests to think about their New Year’s resolutions and write down their goals.
