Creative Tips for Planning the Perfect New Year’s Eve Cocktail Party!

Create the ultimate celebration with these creative tips for planning the perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail party.

Creative Tips for Planning the Perfect New Year’s Eve Cocktail Party

Host a party that will impress your guests so much, they’ll be talking about it well into the New Year. Adding flair and colors that pop can turn any ordinary celebration into the party of the year. Follow these creative tips for planning the perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail party and you’ll feel like you’ve turned into Martha Stewart over night.

How do you plan the perfect New Year’s Eve party? You’ll have to begin, as you do with any party, by establishing the dress code. Your decorations should always mirror your guest’s attire. Are you planning an elaborate, black tie occasion or a casual and cozy evening?

If guests are dressed to the nine, then consider colors such as gold and silver with a touch of sparkle. Glitter can go along way, especially on New Year’s Eve and there are always ways to make it look chic and sophisticated. You can find many DIY tutorials on how to add glitter to champagne bottles. They will be the focal point of the table! Think small portions of food such as appetizers guests can pick up and eat with just a napkin. You want your guests to be able to mingle without the worry of spilling something on their clothes.

If opting for a more cozy and casual evening with friends, you can still make your table pop with candles, balloons and banners. Keep the drinks and food simple by setting up a bar so guests can help themselves. When hosting an intimate New Year’s Eve cocktail party, playing a game with your guests is a great way to break the ice and get everyone talking! Think of a few games you can break out before the clock strikes midnight.

What’s a New Year’s Eve party without the champagne toast at midnight? If planning a small New Year’s Eve cocktail party, consider buying plastic champagne flutes and writing the name of each guest on each one, including the date. They will not only feel extra special during the toast but they can also leave with a party favor to cherish.

Do you have creative tips for planning the perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail party? If you’re in NJ, we hope you’ll take a moment to check out our elegant party venues at The Wilshire Grand Hotel. We would love to help you plan the perfect New Year’s Eve celebration for you and your guests this year.
