Are you ready to top off 2018 with an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party? Here are a few ways to ensure that people are talking about your event long after the clock strikes midnight.


Begin with the End of the Night

If you and your social circle like to enjoy a few glasses of wine, then you should have a plan to make sure that everyone gets home safely when the night comes to a close. Perhaps you’ll set up a space where guests can sleep or help to arrange a ride for guests who stay after midnight.


Decide on a Venue

Most people will host New Year’s Eve in their house or apartment. Of course, you may have more friends than square footage. If you would like to host a huge bash at an outside venue, such as a restaurant or hotel, then it is essential to make your reservations well ahead of time.


Choose Your Party Theme

Your New Year’s Eve gathering doesn’t have to be constrained to a formal, black-tie event or a casual, come-as-you-are one. Consider choosing a theme for your party:

  • Masquerade Ball
  • Ugly Christmas Sweaters
  • Halloween in January
  • Midnight Brunch
  • Chinese New Year-Style


Finger Foods Are a Must

Ideally, you should set your party later in the evening, after your guests have eaten dinner. Then, you can provide a sampling of snacks to keep them satisfied as the night continues. Consider serving these simple, mouthwatering dishes as 2018 comes to a close:

  • Guacamole and Chips
  • Deviled Eggs
  • Cheese Fondue
  • Party Mix
  • Kettlecorn
  • Fried Almonds


Splurge On a Fantastic Wine Selection

A true wine aficionado won’t settle for just one bottle of sparkling wine at their New Year’s Eve party! Instead, you should select a few unique wines that will appeal to your guests while surprising their palates. Throughout the holiday season, be on the lookout for the following wine tasting sets:

  • Thanksgiving’s Perfect Pairings
  • Cheese & Wine
  • Holiday Leftovers
  • If You Like Cabernet
