Choosing the correct decorations guarantees the satisfaction of the party-goers and lets them feel comfortable, allowing them to enjoy the party to its fullest. Since, it was Christmas a few just a few days ago, and winter has finally kicked in, it’s a good idea to make the theme based on the chilly weather. Handmade snowflakes cut out from paper are both cheap and decent decorations. These snowflakes can be hung from the ceiling. You may even clump a group of them together, and scatter some on the food tables. Use ribbons and balloons to highlight the entrances. Don’t overdo it, just enough for the guests to notice. It’s a great time to put those ornament balls that you used to decorate the Christmas tree. Coupled with glitters and ribbons, these balls give a whole new meaning to the decorations.
Use and candles and small lights to illuminate the place. You can also use a fog machine and disco lights if you’re planning to bring a DJ.
- Drinks and foods: Whether you’re hosting a party or just visiting one, there will always be alcohol on the menu. A new year’s celebration has to have alcohol. Most people tend to overdo this part of the celebration and end up suffering from a serious case hangover the nest day. There are a lot of regulations and how-to’s when it comes to drinking during New Year’s Eve.
Our bodies abort alcohol much faster than it can metabolize them. If you don’t feel the alcohol kicking in, don’t go on a chugging spree and drink every single glass or shot you lay your hands on. Give some time for your body to actually, process the drinks. It is better to have a drink or two, once every hour.
Party lovers have a tendency to mix other drugs or make some crazy cocktails that only add to the wooziness of the drinker. Avoid it at all costs. Stick to a particular type of drink, and if you have to switch, make sure to take it in small quantities, so that your body at least, has a chance to adjust to the changes.
Drink water frequently, in order to keep you hydrated. Not only has that, but drinking water also kept you from getting too drunk.
It is a very bad idea to drink on an empty stomach. That being said, don’t just stuff on food like it’s your last meal. Have a decent amount of food, so that you don’t fell hungry for the next 3 to 4 hours. Also, have some snacks while you’re drinking.

Hence, you will be needing some fun-filled tasks and games that will keep the crowd entertained, if you were hosting a party. If you were to visit one, aside from the drinking and dancing, some games are awesome to kill some time.

While you’re holding the glass in one hand, or maybe dancing, it’s not easy to click a decent photo. A photographer will sure that you have all those precious moments captured in the best way possible.
While going to a party, carry a noisemaker. What is a party without noise? The noisemakers will come in handy to give some additional thrills and will add to the enjoyment of the party. Also if you’re hosting a party, ask the guests to bring a noise maker of their choice. Competition can be played to see who wins.
Create a prediction jar. While entering, each member will have to write a prediction and drop it into the jar. When it’s time to wrap up the party, everyone will pick one at random and see what their future entails.
A party is a way to spend some crazy as well quality time with your friends and family. When the music gets over, and the bottles become empty. It is the memories of our dear and loved ones, that will take us through another year of our lives.
