Whether you still haven’t made up your mind yet, or you actually did, it is worth reading the lines below and ticking the points when preparing for the big celebrations.
I won’t promise you plenty of ideas in this blog. Although I am throwing some ideas for New Year decoration, I am pulling in this article a framework to follow to ensure you will have an unprecedented party to welcome the New Year! So, let’s get ourselves ready to celebrate the upcoming year when the clock strikes midnight on December 31!
This is the first and essential step. Once you decide on the theme, all ideas will come together just like pieces of a puzzle. After all, you don’t want to throw a party with no identity. The theme will be the key that will open the door for homogenous ideas. There are plenty of theme ideas to choose from for New Year’s Eve. You can go for a glittery theme, using papers with glitters for your confetti or brushing your balloons with glittery paint. The sixties or seventies themes make the best themes for Christmas eve. With these themes, you do not only get your decorations set around this time, but you can choose your outfit to suit the chosen theme. Black and white colors make as well another perfect theme for the new year, especially if they are well-paired with gold or silver. Nothing beats this theme in elegance, and your decoration options are plenty!
Under the theme section, we spoke briefly about the colors. Colors actually are what complements the theme and give it its look and feel. You cannot choose a classy theme and go for bizarre colors. On the other hand, you cannot choose a marine theme and opt for the orange and red palette. Once the primary and secondary tones of your color palette are identified, you can plan ahead many decorative items. Let’s say, for example, your colors are light pink and gold, and you choose the glitter theme. Handmade confetti would include glitters, along with cut pink and gold papers.
Before placing your decoration, decide wisely on the seating plan. If we learned something from this pandemic, it is that we need to take at least some basic precautions when planning for gatherings. Social distancing, to a certain extent, is essential. Instead of gathering all guests at one large table, why not change the ritual this year. You can opt for sofas and armchairs with coffee tables, cocktail tables with high stools, as well as a few bean bags. With such a setup, you will be able to have enough space to create a dance floor simulation and enjoy your night.
New Year is celebrated once a year. And we all want this eve to be a night to remember as say our adieus to the current year. To create beautiful memories for the years to come, what’s better than taking some nice photos with the people we love. For instance, if you choose the black and white theme, a nice backdrop with helium balloons will make a huge difference. On the other hand, if you have a flowery theme per se, a backdrop with organza, with a beautiful flower arch and a cutout of the New Year will stand out in the party area.
Whether you are opting for flowers or candles, make sure to stick to the theme you chose or to your color palette. You cannot go wild with a light classy theme. On the other hand, you cannot choose monotone colors when your theme and color palette call for colorful flowers.
Unless you are planning to benefit from a catering company’s service, you do not want to spend your night filling up empty glasses for your guests. It is a night to celebrate, enjoy, and cherish. Hence, a self-serve bar will be a great idea to keep your guests happy and well served. Do not forget to add some nice decorations to make it blend well with the overall decoration of your part space!
A great idea is to have the toasts ready for midnight. You do not want to miss the long-awaited time when the clock strikes midnight because you are busy getting the toasts ready. Fill them up and have a good cheer with your guests at midnight!
It’s the New Year’s Eve. Everyone just can’t wait for the last 10 seconds of the year to start the final countdown. Therefore, do not forget to place a clock in the party area and set the time. And the clock strikes 11:59, get ready with your guests to start the final countdown to welcome the New Year!
