3 Tips for Perfect New Year's Eve Parties
Ladies and gents, it's that time of year again! Christmas is over but the New Year is on its way like the express train. You might be thinking that it's far too late to plan a New Year's Eve party, but as someone who just scheduled a party at the last possible minute, I assure you that it's not. You just need to know what it takes to put together really successful New Year's Eve Parties. It's pretty simple, especially if you take advantage of things like decoration, music, and grocery coupons to save money on all of your items.
Fabulous Food and Drinks
The best New Year's Eve parties have delicious food and beverages. For food, hors d'oeuvres like Brie and crackers, crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, veggies and dip, and things of that nature are great. Have some desserts, too — maybe even a dessert table, with everything from cakes to simple cookies. As far as drinks go, you need soda and mixers, some cider, great vodka punch, and — of course — champagne! Throw in some pink champagne for something festive, and because some people prefer it better than dryer white variations. Find recipes for great, seasonal cocktails, and make sure you have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages for any teetotalers as well.
Another thing the funnest New Year's Eve parties have in common is the music. If you don't want to have dancing at your party, then at least have mood music. For serious parties — work dos and things like that — classical music might be a good option, but I think it's always better to keep things funky. If you do want people to dance, make sure you have a good mix of fast and slow songs. You can put together your very own party list by using music coupon codes to buy mp3s from different stores and shops online.
It just ain't a party if you don't have gorgeous decorations. Streamers, crepe paper, tinsel, fairy lights: all of these things make great decorations for New Year's Eve parties. Don't be afraid to get a little bold, though, by using things like LED lights, beads, crystals, draped fabric, balloons, and so on. Make your party dazzling and it will have a great impact on your guests. I suggest checking out Event Decor Direct coupon codes for some fabulous decor ideas.
Putting together New Year's Eve parties takes some serious planning, but if you're organized, know what you want to do, and use coupons and discounts to save on your items, you really can plan an excellent, festive fete starting … now!
