It’s that time of the year yet again, where you send a holiday card to your loved ones, and get into the spirit of joy and happiness. You would obviously love to have a crazy party instead of heading towards 2018 will a dull start. As, Seventy Seven Entertainment Pvt Ltd. is in the event industry since past 15 years, here we give 6 tips from the event experts to help you ring in 2018 with a big bang:
1) Get a Headcount:
As a host, make a guest list to know a precise number of people who are planning to come to your New Year’s party. You would not want to get embarrassed in front of your friends for not having enough food and drinks. Make sure you send out an e-invite which allows the guests to RSVP.
2) Have a set music list:
Be the house DJ at your party. Make sure that you have all the famous songs from the recent to the old classic. It is important for your guests to enjoy the songs and groove to the peppy playlist. A great playlist is one amazing example of a conversation starter, and also a way to get people on the dance floor.
Be creative and decorate. If you are planning to have a themed party, make sure your decoration match according to the theme. If not then try to include some simple decorations that are fun yet easy to clean after the party. Swap your regular house lights to some funky color lights. Add some fairy lights to decorate the house.
4) Start a new tradition:
People welcome New Year in their own different way. There are dozens of various traditions that are followed by different culture in different regions, why not make your own tradition with your gang. Like the Colombian who carry a suitcase around with them hoping to have a travel-filled year ahead of them or like the Germans welcome the New Year by eating a donut filled with jam or liquor. You can pick from the existing traditions or into something new.
5) Countdown to enter 2018:
In between the loud music and conversations, there is always a chance where you would or might miss out on the countdown to the New Year and miss it. Place a huge wall clock in your main party room, and wave a goodbye to 2017.
6) Personalized Giveaway:
New Year’s comes just once a year and personalized giveaways add the right amount of razzle and dazzle to impress your guests. You can fill tasty candies or lay them out like a candy buffet table for the guests to choose their own favorite candies. Apart from this, you can give a swag bag, thank you letters, etc in synergy with the theme of your party.
