At Home Ideas:

BYOA – Bring your own Appetizer:

Bringing your own appetizer will let your attendees bring one of their favourite dishes for friends to try and let your taste buds dance into the new year!

Make a 2017 memory board: Fill a life size poster with all your favourite memories with your friends and let the attendees a chance to rejoice on the good memories.

Hire a DJ: Best way to dance the night away is to hire a DJ. Create a playlist of your favourite songs, old and new and bust a move.

Decorate: Decorate your house with everything that screams New Year’s! From Confetti, streamers, tablecloths, balloons and string lights! Just always make sure to include hats and lots of party horns!!!!!

Photo booth: DIY photo booth is extremely easy to make! Grab a camera, make a back drop, and some accessories (mustache, sparkling glasses, champagne bottle, champagne glasses, etc.) and smile away!

Play games:  Games is always a great way to bring laughter and excitement to the party! Cards against humanity, Charades, New Year’s Resolution Guessing Game, Two Resolutions and a Lie,New Year’s Eve Minute to win It and much more!

Pick a theme: Picking a theme gets the attendees into the party and they get to dress up as well! You could include prices as well for best dressed, best couples, funniest, etc

Ball Drop:  This is a party must have, we are so fortunate to be in the same time zone as New York City!!!! Make sure you TV is turned on all night on the ball drop and turn it louder 10 minutes before midnight to make sure everyone gets excited!!!


We hope we have helped sparked your imagination in ringing in 2018 the perfect way! We wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous 2018!
