6 Awesome New Year’s Eve Party Ideas


There are many fantastic ways to celebrate this New Year’s Eve. While some people prefer a simple holiday dinner, others prefer fun parties. The New Year’s Eve party is all about friends, champagne, music, and festive cheer. So, if you are going to host the New Year party, check out a few fantastic ideas to try this year.

1. Karaoke party

I’m not speaking about karaoke party in the bar or pub. While it’s a great idea, I don’t think that you and your friends want to wait in endless queues to get that entry into the karaoke club. You may throw an awesome karaoke party in your own house. The best thing is that you can host a karaoke party even with limited budget and a limited space. You will need stereo system, a bunch of karaoke CDs, microphone and, of course, lots of friends.

2. Card party

A card party is a fun and festive way to keep your family and friends busy. It may sound boring, but trust me you will have a lot of fun. You will need multiple decks of cards and some other popular card games similar to the card game Uno. However, if you have lots of guests, it’s better to form internal groups and make sure everybody is engaged in a game. It’s much easier to wait for the clock to strike twelve, when you have something to keep all of your guests engaged.

3. Dessert marathon

If you and your friends are fond of cooking, you may want to host a dessert marathon. Start with making a list of the desserts you want to make with your guests. You can even go shopping together and buy all ingredients you need. Start preparing the desserts so that you can savor your tasty treats as the clock strikes twelve.

4. Window shopping party

If you decide to throw a New Year’s Eve party, it won’t necessarily have to be at your house. You can spend the whole evening window shopping, enjoying the New Year Eve’s decorations of your city. You can also have a meal at one of the best restaurants or spend the night away at a local club. This is one of the most fun and a bit spontaneous ways to celebrate the New Year’s Eve.

5. Movie marathon

If you are planning to throw a small and serene New Year’s Eve party, why not have a movie marathon and watch your favorite movies in cozy and comfortable bed? You can watch action thrillers, romantic comedies, or even horror movies to celebrate the New Year. Begin watching your movies tonight and end only at midnight. Just don’t forget about finger food, popcorn and champagne.

6. A themed party

Throwing a themed party can add even more fun to your celebration. This can be a Santa Claus theme, a character theme or movie based theme. Just don’t forget to tell your guests about the theme you picked beforehand so that they could choose costumes well in advance.

If you decide to celebrate the New Year’s Eve with your friends, it will be a nice idea to throw a party. I personally like to have a themed party or a dessert marathon. What about you? Do you like any of these ideas? Do you have any other ideas? Share them with us, please.
