New Year’s Eve Party Checklist

New Year’s Eve Party Checklist

Another year ends, but another party is about to start! The New Year’s Eve Party is one of the most anticipated celebrations in the whole world. Fireworks in the sky, a lot of people are cheering and celebrating! If this is your first time to host a New Year’s Eve Party and you don’t know where to start – you’re in the right place. Get ready to take some notes because we’ll be giving you NYE Party Checklist.

Make your invitation impressive and definitely inviting. Here are possible designs that you can customize online.

MAIN-INVITATIONS

Countdown to the New Year –Click HERE to customize this NYE invitation

Now that you’ve got good invitations, let’s start decorating your place.

THE PLACE-MAIN

A usual color theme for a New Year’s Eve party would be black, gold and silver. To achieve a festive mood, go for hanging decorations. But don’t settle on the plain ones – get various and fun designs. Hanging decorations with icons and texts are more playful and perfect. Next would be party items such as photo booth props! Your visitors will enjoy taking several selfies and a lot of pictures with these cool items. You can also gather all clocks in your house and display them in one place for a unique décor.

THE TABLES-MAIN

Don’t forget to brighten up your table with golden trays to place your popping champagne. For some sweet snacks, place candies in interesting snack boxes.

The food you prepared will be more appreciated if they are placed on plates that match the theme of the party. It’s better if you buy plate sets that include cups and napkins. Because they are less of a  hassle.

PARTY PEOPLE

The last would be things for your party guests. Always have those noisemakers for a loud and fun countdown. Just like squawkers and blow horns. Offer different colors not just one. Plus, those awesome party hats.

And when the party is over and it’s officially 2016, thank your guests with a personalized favor box. That will leave them surprised but grateful.

Planning a New Year’s Eve party is not hard that all! You just need good planning and tips from party lovers like us. Enjoy your celebration and have a wonderful year ahead of you!

Actually, green food or vegetables are considered as lucky for New Year because they resemble money. But more people prefer cabbage because it’s not just green but it’s also round. Which means that one person’s good fortune will keep on spinning like a circle. If you like to serve cabbage, then try Kale, Cabbage and Brussels Sprout Salad for a spinning delight!

It’s grape eating with a sweet twist.

New Year Party Look

New Year Party Look

Oh well, looks like we’re approaching the last party of the year – New Year’s Eve.  This is another festive time where we welcome another 365 chapters in our life. That’s why we have to make sure that we look our best as we bid goodbye to good 2015. If you already have a picture in mind on what to wear but still confused on how to start, then check out our outfit ideas! We prepared the best looks for both men and women. Just simply click on the bold underlined text to shop.

On our suggested New Year’s Eve look for women, we have two ideas. First is, you can start with something easy to wear – which is a dress. A sparking fit and flare dress will give a sexy but chic mood. You can pair it with sparkling sandals for an effortless glam.

Second, if you’re tired of the typical dress look – then have a sequin top instead. You can match it with anything plain but dark colored like skinny pants or pencil skirts. Then for the shoes, use classy pointed pumps with minimal stone accent. Take note that both looks can be paired with drop earrings. Lastly, since you’re wearing something shimmering already, use a clutch that’s still fab but with shining details. We don’t want you to overdo the sparkle look.

WOMEN

 

We also prepared two New Year’s Eve looks for the gentlemen. Some parties require strict dress codes so go for the formal look. A tuxedo is the safest formal look you can have. And it gives a sleek and classy aura. Trust me, women like that.

Now if the NYE party that you’ll be attending is just with your loved ones – then directly choose the casual look. Instantly get a comfortable shirt and enjoy the party. Casual footwear would be loafers. 

A fashionable watch shouldn’t be forgotten and you can wear trendy shades for that suave look.

MEN

Look no further because these NYE Party outfit ideas are guaranteed to make any head turn and impressed. Cheers for a New Year!

You need a sunscreen in your beach bag that has long lasting sun protection and no greasy residue. Then use a sunscreen lipbalm because your lips are also very exposed to the sun.
