Top Tips for A Rockin' New Years Eve Party
I'll never forget the year my sister was in town, we invited a few friends over and we fell asleep around 9:30. On New Years Eve! I swore I would NEVER let that happen again! If there's ever a festive night to celebrate, that is it!
Let's party this New Years Eve...here's a fool proof plan for you all...
1. Little Miss Party in a Box: I think it's safe to say you already know how clutch it is to have this in your possession for a party. Tableware + decor that is to die for and recyclable for easy clean up! (I mean really...who wants to clean up after New Years?!)
2. Prep your party in advance: We are giving away free notepads + pens in our party boxes right now and we want you to USE THEM! Here's your check list:
Food: Keep it simple. Set platters of meats, cheeses, tons of bread + crackers, olives, fruits, crudités and cupcakes. Late night at your party, plan to order pizza.
(Our ridiculously gorgeous food came from Poppy's Catering)
Drinks: Plan for a self serve bar so you don't get stuck mixing drinks all night! Serve one signature drink (holiday punch or cherry mimosas), beer and wine.
Make sure you have: Sparkling water (for those who will want a glass of bubbly to toast but may not be drinking), toilet paper stocked in the bathroom and fill your freezer with some frozen pigs in a blanket (just in case!)
Balloons: Take your balloons to your local party store and ask them to have them filled with helium and ready for delivery or pick up the morning of your party.
Music: Make a long, fun playlist. Or find us on Spotify so you can tap into ours. Here's our NYE 2016 playlist.
Morning of your party: Chill the wine and beer either in your fridge or outside in the cold (says the East Coaster). Set up all decor and tableware. Set out props for photos. Set the bar. Make sure to include a bottle opener, bucket + tongs for ice and a cute dishtowel for drippy bottles. Clean the bathrooms.
Afternoon: Doll up. Pre-mix your signature drink.
1 hour before the party: Pump the tunes. Light the candles. Set up your platters of food out. Set out all wine and beer on ice.
Now let's Party!
