6 Tips For Last-Minute Party Planning

December 31, 2019

One more day to go we'll welcome the New Year, and before you embark on this new beginning, as you say goodbye to the old, Let's welcome the coming new year with cheer and laughter. 

 

I'm sure some of you have a plan in mind for New Year's Eve celebration, but if you on last-minute finally wanting to throw a party to ring the NYE with family and friends, and thinking it is possible to arrange a party on last minute?

Of course, it is possible! 

 

Throwing a great New Year's Eve party can help make the celebrations even more enjoyable. Get inspired and host the fun, memorable party for you and those who close to you.

 

There's always a certain amount of pressure on planning a party, especially at the last-minute. For one, everyone wants to start the New year off right, and second, you want to plan a perfect party, it is hard enough to arrange a party, a proper celebration requires to arranged in advance. Now since you need to plan at the last-minute, you should keep everything as simple and easy. 

 

That being said, you need an idea of how to do a last-minute party,

Here I will give you a tip and trick on how to host a less stress last-minute party that is cost-efficient, fun, and convenient. And, it will save you and your guests from the dilemma on the unplan New Year Eve (believe me there's a lot of people suffer from this), and they will thank you for providing a memorable night for them to welcome a New Year with you.

 

1. Skip Formal Invitation

Since this a last-minute plan, there's no time for the print invitation; your best bet to invite your friend and family is to call via phone each of them, but before you straight away asking them, first apologize for the last-minute invite. Also, you can post an event page on Facebook and all other social media platform. Don't be discouraged if they decline the invitation, remember, you invite them on last-minute, they probably have made different plans. Keep a small number of guests; it will be easy to arrange the gathering. 

 

2. Use Restaurant, Grocery Store Delly, and Salad Bar.

Ok, unless you're an avid cook, then you can cook at your last-minute party. Otherwise, to save the time, you can order in from the restaurant or the grocery store — such a Trader Joe's, Sam's Club, Costco, Vons, and a lot more.

Keep in mind, if you plan to start your party at 6 or 7 pm is supper time, then you should provide a full course meal, but most of the NYE party starts at 8 or 9 pm, appetizer and finger food are appropriate since most of the guest already have dinner beforehand. Don't forget to mention on the invite that you will provide finger foods, so it'll give a hint to your guest to have the supper first before heading to your party.

Try to buy every dish on one trip and one store, so I recommend you to have your grocery list ready. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Dress up your home

Skip the DIY decor since you have no time for it, and you don't have to decor every inch of your place. Since you are in a hurry, one small dessert table decor with strings, hats, and balloon would be nice. And to up the amp, your decor adds fresh flowers, cupcakes, and string light. It would make your corner fabulous. I love A dollar store, 99 stores, or Walmart.

4. Drink

Try to serve affordable but good drinks, such a Zima or Smirnoff, and if you have a signature drink, that would be fabulous. Here are an easy recipe for your fun night.

 

Guava Nectar Cider Rum Punch

 

32 oz Kern’s Guava Nectar Juice
25 Oz sparkling apple cider
1.5 cups seltzer
2 Cups aged Rum
1 orange, sliced

 

Direction

In the punch bowl, combine Guava juice, Apple cider, seltzer, and rum. Put orange slices on top as garnish. Serve over ice. Makes 8-10 servings.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Music

Music is a must, use your Spotify, karaoke, or any music list that you have to make the party alive! 

 

6. Game and Entertainment

If you have games while waiting to ring the New Year, it would be fun. Prepare plenty of board games to cycle through. Word games are always fun and stimulating. My favorite game

would be New Year Eve Charade.

Turns a classic game into a New Year's Eve party game, Depending on the size of your party, you can either divide your guests into small or more larger groups. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can set up a photo prop on the wall using metallic trimmers and buy cowboy hats, fake mustache, faux fur scarf, funny glasses from a dollar store to take funny pictures, and use your cell phone to take photos.

 

Watching a funny movie is one of the ways to kill time, as well. I strongly recommend the movie 'Gods Must Be Crazy.' Or Euro Trip movie.

 

Dancing is one of the ways to let off steam, so let's dance the night away!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for reading and Happy New Year everyone!

 

Much Love,
