    5 Party Planning Tips

    1. First and foremost, make an elaborate list of to-dos and keep it handy. Tick off every pointer after you’ve made arrangements for it. This way, you’ll know at one glance how much progress you’ve made and how much is still left to be done.
    2. Plan well in advance, unless it’s a very last moment plan, so you have enough time to organise the party, without feeling overly flustered.
    3. Create separate spaces for everything your guests will indulge in – food, beverages, sitting space, dance floor, etc. This will ensure that these spaces don’t overlap and cause inconvenience to your guests.
    4. Make arrangements according to the available space to avoid clutter. Perhaps you want to have a well designated dance floor, a F&B area, a photo booth, a smoking area, and the like, but you’re short of space. In that case, plan for only those that are non-negotiable and give the others a miss. 
    5. Keep yourself free during the party. Have a gala time with your guests rather than staying busy with serving them food and drinks and overseeing everything. Either hire people who can help you with these tasks or let your guests help themselves. After all the frenzy you’ve gone through while organising the party, you too deserve to let your hair down and party the night away, girl!

    There are plenty of games to choose from for a New Year’s Eve house party. Whether you’re looking for classic games like “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” and “Charades”, or more modern options like “Jack Box” and “Two Truths and a Lie”, there’s something for everyone. Party drinking games like “Never Have I Ever” and “Kings” add an element of excitement and can be a great way to kick off the new year. So, gather your friends and family and get ready to ring in the new year with lots of laughter and fun.
