Who's planning New Year’s party? If you haven’t hosted a New Year’s party before, or you’re wondering what you need to do to host a great party on New Year's Eve (or any time of year!), these tips are sure to help you!
How to Throw a Perfect Party
Finger foods are a must for any great New Year’s party, so you’ll want to have a variety of things to snack on, both cold and warm. This will keep people awake until midnight and it also gives you a chance to show off your cooking skills!
I have some fabulous appetizers that are perfect for any party! Unless you are planning a seated dinner, make sure everything you serve is easy to eat standing or sitting on a chair or couch. As much as I love ribs, this would not be a great time to serve them.

Of course, you must have cocktails for the grown-ups, and I have quite a few choices for you!
This sparkling cocktail is fun and so easy to make. We always have sparkling wine or Prosecco on hand.
Who loves a good martini? This is a sweeter version of the traditional, more like a Cosmo. Hope you like it!
I had this cocktail in Turks & Caicos a few years ago. So much fun!
Hosting a great New Years party definitely requires some festive decorations. See the streamers, hats, and other decor makes the party more fun.
Make a list of everything you need and be sure to set a timer so you're ready for the countdown at midnight. It helps to have the TV on so you can count down together.
Plan some games to keep everyone busy and interacting.
You'll probably have at least one or two shy guests who you might have to encourage to mingle. A great way to do this is to bring up a few topics related to the holidays, the weather, or favorite TV shows.
