5 tips on how to spice up your New Year’s Eve party! New Year’s Eve is one of our favorite holidays, and with 2017 just around the corner, we have 5 tips on how to spice up your New Year’s Eve party (with a little karaoke, of course!).

Tip 1: Sending Evites

When planning a party, we always start with the guest list. The easiest and fastest way to send out the details to all your friends is by creating a Facebook event, or you can opt for sending out a personalize digital designs from websites like Evites or Paperless Posts. Send your invites with plenty of notice, as people’s schedules fill up quickly during the busy holiday season.

Tip 2: Decorative Décor

You don’t need to spend a ton of money to create a memorable NYE atmosphere for your guests. Try repurposing some of your current holiday decorations in a fun, new way! We all know NYE is all about the glitz and glam, try taking some of that left over glittery wrapping paper that you didn’t use, and place it over your classic white or black table cloths as a runner to add a little sparkle to your tablescape. Have any leftover wine bottles or extra glitter on hand? Coat the empty bottles in clear drying glue, pour the glitter onto a piece newspaper and begin to roll the bottle until completely coated in glitter, Voila!

Tip 3: Champagne Toast

There’s nothing like a champagne toast to ring in the New Year with all your closest friends and family, but supplying the entire party with bubbles tends to get costly. This year, create your own signature Sangria Champagne! Mix left over sparkling wine and fruit to create a fun and festive NYE cocktail. Not only will your guests be impressed with your creative take on the ceremonial toast, but this recipe tends to be more cost effective for the host.

Tip 5: Think Mini

When it comes to serving your guests food, think mini. Easy grab and go appetizers such as some mini savory tarts or a cheese plate is perfect for entertaining. We love this recipe for Spinach Dip Bites Plan to have your guests arrive around 9pm, so you can get away with providing light bites, but you’re not responsible for feeding everyone a big dinner. We’ve also taken a few ideas from the pros from the Food Network for fast and easy light bites to serve for your party!

Finally, make sure your party guests have a safe way of getting home. With apps such as Uber at our fingertips, there’s no need for anyone getting behind the wheel after a few cocktails. This holiday season Uber has teamed up with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) to donate $10.00 for every ride booked through Uber Events to support their work to end drunk driving and aid victims and survivors. We hope these tips help you become the hostess with the mostess this New Year’s Eve! Are you incorporating karaoke into your New Year’s festivities?
