New Year’s Eve is all about waving bye to the past and welcoming a new start. If you’re planning to spend your New Year’s Eve at home, there are a few things you can do to make the night extra special. To help you out, here are some of our top tips on hosting a New Year’s to remember.
Keep things warm
Fire pits are a perfect showstopper for a New Years evening at home. Not only is it super sociable to sit around a fire and chat with your friends and family, but it also means you get to spend some time outdoors while still feeling the warmth of a powerful fire. Our Fire Pit Bundle will help you build a fire that’s equal parts powerful and sustainable while lasting throughout the night. If you’d still prefer staying indoors, we also have a Log Burner Bundle - ideal for warming up the house.
Nail the food and drink
It wouldn’t be New Year without a glass of champagne in everybody’s hand as the clock strikes 12. Nailing the food and drink is one of the most important parts of any New Year party, so make sure to put in the time to come up with a varied selection. If you have a big group coming around, keeping some hot snacks on offer throughout the night will keep all your guests going until midnight. Make sure to keep things accessible too - your guests will feel a lot more welcome if they can refill their own drinks.
Think of a theme
If you want to add another twist to your New Year party, a pre-planned theme can help you stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s black-tie attire or something more fun (like film characters), a theme can bring all the guests together and create a more relaxed atmosphere. Not only will a theme set your New Year party apart, but it will also increase the excitement and anticipation of your guests. Don’t forget to let all your guests know about the theme well in advance too!
Keep the details in mind
The small details can make all the difference when it comes to preparation for New Year. Little details such as a polaroid camera available for the night or a pre-prepared board game can make the atmosphere that bit more personal and memorable. You could also get each individual guest involved by asking for their favourite songs and compiling them into a playlist. When it comes to decorating our house, remember - little changes to your space can make a big difference.
