How to Have a Great New Year's Eve Party

Have a fabulous party and enjoy it too!

LOCATION - Have your party at the best location you can afford. A nice restaurant is preferable, however, your house can be just as fabulous with a little planning. If you have a friend with a better home layout or view, convince them to have a party by volunteering to help plan it.

PREPARATION - Cleanliness is next to godliness so make sure your space is clean. Fully stock toilet paper, clean towels, and tissue. Make sure you have areas set up for conversations, by placing sofas and chairs strategically and adding seating where needed. Make sure there is plenty of parking outside for the number of guests you are expecting.

FOOD and DRINKS - Prepare many easy items the day before. Have your appetizers ready so that you can pop them into the oven easily. For example buy some prepared pastry dough and cut it into triangles. Add a small slice of sausage and cheese and roll up. Heat until golden brown and you have a delicious quick appetizer. Have plenty of drinks on hand and recruit some of your friends to be dedicated drink makers to rotate during the evening.

OVER INVITE - Remember that 10% less than RSVP will actually show up. Tell friends if it is all right for them to bring more than one guest.
