Timing is everything.

New Year’s Eve parties tend to go later than other events because they revolve around ringing in the New Year at midnight. You don’t want your guests to be exhausted or out of things to chat about by 11 o’clock. The easiest way to keep the party from petering out too early is to start it a little later. Instead of starting at 8, tell your guests to arrive any time after 9.

Have plenty of activities.

Games and activities help break the ice if not all of your guests know each other, but they also help keep people engaged throughout the evening. It’s good to have some activities planned, but you also want to go with the flow. For example, if you had a game of Pictionary planned, but someone suggests you play Celebrity and everyone seems excited about it, go where the group enthusiasm takes you. You can also set up stations with card, dice, and board games and let your guests gravitate toward the activities that interest them.

Carefully craft the playlist.

It’s important to take the tastes of your guests and the mood you want to set into account when selecting your music for the evening. You want the music to be upbeat enough that it keeps people in the mood to celebrate. However, you don’t want the music to be overpowering so that your guests can’t hear to speak to each other. If you need some inspiration, ask your guests to suggest a few tracks each to add to the party playlist.

Be clear about the food.

It’s important for your guests to understand what kind of party you are throwing. If people expect dinner, but you only have appetizers and snacks, you’re going to have a lot of hungry people on your hands. On the other hand, if people don’t realize that you are serving dinner and eat before they arrive, you’ll have more leftover food than you know what to do with. Be clear on the invite what you are providing and if guests are expected or encouraged to bring anything.
