It’s the most wonderful time of the year for multiple reasons. But it’s mainly wonderful because of the 1,000 excuses people have to party, celebrate, and spend time with their loved ones. New Year’s Eve embodies all of that in one go. If you plan to have a joyous occasion in your home, read on. Here are four ways to prepare your home for a New Year’s Eve party.
Create a Theme
Trust us when we say that New Year’s Eve is not the theme. For starters, just about everyone has done it before. Who said Halloween is the only time of year people can dress in costume? Come up with a theme for your party so that everyone can get in the mood!
It doesn’t have to be anything too big. Something small like a sneakers ball or a time travel theme. Having your guests come dressed in ‘70s gear while you all prepare to step in 2023 will get everyone in a festive and joyful mood. And it makes for killer pictures.
Open It Up
Your home will need an open concept. You want to create a vibe and space where everyone is talking, laughing, and dancing. You don’t need to tear down walls in your home, but consider rearranging the furniture to create more space.
Make sure there is always a clear path to the kitchen and bathroom. People will filter in and out of these areas the most, so make sure they are open for your guests.
Prep for Clean Up
The cleanup portion will be epic, but that’s how you know you threw a great party. Eventually, the kitchen will become full, and there may be no place to throw out food. Consider renting a dumpster for your party.
You’ll need the extra space to dispose of the decorations and leftover food people didn’t eat. You can hold on to some of it and try to give people to-go boxes. But some of that food will stay with you, and your fridge may not hold it all. You can dispose of what’s left in the dumpster so that it doesn’t spoil.
Less is not more in this situation. When it comes to a party of this caliber, you need abundance. The holidays are the time when people overindulge themselves the most. And who are you to stop them?
Encourage your guests to eat, drink, and be merry. Buy more food and drinks than you think you’ll need because it’s always better to be over-prepared than underprepared. After your party, your guests can get back to their diets and healthy lifestyles.
After you prepare your home for your New Year’s Eve party, get yourself ready to have the time of your life. People will be talking about that night for weeks to come.
