From the celebratory mood to the dazzling fireworks displays, there’s not much to dislike about New Year’s Eve—except for the overpriced drinks and stiff formalwear. This year, ditch the lesser-liked elements of New Year’s Eve by hosting your own party on Dec. 31. Here are some tips to help you host an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party at your apartment at The Residences at Eastern Market.
Pick a theme. Give your party a fun and festive twist by choosing a theme. You could have a cozy pajama party, for example, and ask that your guests show up in their comfiest PJs. Or you could host something more traditional, like a potluck pie party or a masquerade party. Be sure to include the details of your theme on your invitations so that your guests know what to expect!
Create a statement wall. Choose one wall in your home and dress it up to wow your guests. Maybe you’ll deck it out in floor-to-ceiling balloons, create a selfie station, or adorn the wall with an oversized clock decal that counts down to midnight. Use your imagination to create something spectacular!
Stock your bar cart. New Year’s Eve isn’t complete without a swanky drink, preferably one that’s fizzy and sipped from a champagne flute. Ensure that your bar cart is fully loaded with everything your guests will need to craft their own cocktails, making sure to offer non-alcoholic options for the designated drivers! If you don’t have a bar cart, designate a corner of your space to be a drinks station.
