Hosting your own new year’s eve party is a fantastic way to celebrate the night with your closest friends and family. To make your party more unique, check out some of OROGOLD’s favorite new year’s party theme ideas.
A Black and White Ball
The Black and White Ball held in 1966 by Truman Capote has to be one of the most infamous of them all, and has long since been recognized as the best party of the century. While you may not be in the position to rent out a ballroom at the Plaza, you can still incorporate some of the ideas from a black and white ball into your own party, no matter where you have chosen to host it. From the decorations to the food that you serve, the black and white theme should be consistent throughout all of your planning. In addition to dressing in either black or white, guests can also wear black or white masks, which they remove at midnight to reveal their faces.
Rather than waiting until midnight before popping open the bottles of champagne, OROGOLD suggests hosting a champagne mixology party, where you supply the champagne and the mixers so that your guests can enjoy creating their own champagne-based cocktails throughout the evening. OROGOLD recommends supplying a few tried-and-tested recipes for any guests that don’t feel like experimenting, but do provide a wide variety of mixers for those that want to try out some wilder creations.
A Guilty Pleasures Party
For many, the start of the new year signals the turning over of a new leaf, which makes new year’s eve their last chance to really indulge. OROGOLD suggests treating your guests to a night of decadence with a guilty pleasure themed party. ‘Vice Stations’ can be set up around the room, featuring a variety of different guilty pleasures, from decadent desserts to lush cocktails to a gaming lounge. Choose the stations based on the main interests of yourself and your guests, so that you can be sure that there is a guilty pleasure that everyone will want to indulge in.
Karaoke machines are inexpensive to rent for the night, and a karaoke party is a fun way to get all of your guests involved, belting out your favorite tunes throughout the evening. You could even make it a fancy dress party, with guests dressing up as their favorite music artists. For some extra fun, OROGOLD suggests handing out creative awards through the night, from Best Dance Moves to Most Likely to be Discovered. If you wanted to take the theme even further, you could host an American Idol or X-Factor themed party, complete with a row of judges.
Whether you want something small and intimate or large and extravagant, these new year’s eve party ideas should have you covered. From a high-end black and white ball to a laid-back karaoke party, each of these themes guarantees that you and your guests will have a new year’s celebration that you will never forget.
