Tips for Hosting a New Year’s Eve Party at Home

The start of a new decade is on the horizon. If you’re planning to host a New Year’s Eve party at your home, there are a few factors to consider to ensure a fun experience for your guests (and minimal stress for yourself). When you’re on the search for in-home party inspiration, browse the tips we share here to start 2020 with great memories.

Focus on the Atmosphere

Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering of your closest friends or you’re planning for a larger crowd, the ambiance will set the tone for the evening. Even if you have a laidback event in mind, you can transform your home into a festive destination simply by stringing up some twinkling white lights. For a more eclectic vibe, display a disco ball for a club-like feel.

Treat Guests to a Champagne Bar

When you’re hosting at home, the bar choices may be limited--but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Champagne is the quintessential NYE beverage, so a champagne bar is a fun option to consider. In addition to a selection of champagnes to sample, dress up the bar with enhancements such as rosemary sprigs, pomegranate seeds, sugar cubes, or orange zest.

Have a Polaroid Handy

Each New Year brings the thrill of new beginnings, but the start of 2020 feels like an especially momentous occasion. To soak up the last moments of 2019, have a Polaroid on hand to capture special memories with your guests. For great photo ops, set up a festive photo booth area.

Serve a Memorable Menu

New Year’s Eve is the last party of the holiday season, so it’s a great opportunity to serve a creative menu. Fondue provides an upscale feel, while lucky black-eyed peas are a tried and true tradition. Interested in serving up foods that are said to bring luck from around the globe? Consider these options.
