Planning on hosting New Year’s this year? You’ll need more than some apps and champagne to create a fun and memorable night. If you’re wondering how to throw an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party that will be remembered for the right reasons, we have our top tips for hosting a successful event below.
Don’t Skimp on the Food
When it comes to a party, the food is often what entices many people to attend. So it’s an important component to do right. To throw a fun and memorable night, make sure not to skimp on the food. Whether you decide to serve a sit-down meal or stick with finger foods and apps, make sure the food is fresh and tasty. Also, don’t forget about the vegetarians and vegans in the crowd! With more and more people jumping on this way of eating, there will likely be at least a few in attendance. So, don’t forget to include tasty options for them as well.
Make Sure the Music Suits Your Crowd
Music is a key part of setting the tone and creating a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. To get your guests up dancing and having a good time, make sure to put some thought into the music. If you plan to host at home, set up a playlist that suits your crowd or you can even have your guests plug in their phones to switch up the music to suit everyone. To really go above and beyond, hire a band if your budget and space permits.
Host it in a Hall
If you’re looking to host a big due, then you’ll need ample space to accommodate everyone comfortably. In this case, a banquet hall like the St. Elias Centre, can provide the flexible space you need. Conveniently located in Ottawa, their venue includes parking as well as in-house catering so you can access everything in one spot. You can select a suitable menu created by their culinary team, get assistance with planning from the events coordinator, and dazzle your guests as they’re welcomed into a modern and elegant venue.
Create a Theme
People love to have a good excuse to get dressed up once in a while. So why not create a theme for yours? It can be a Great Gatsby or masquerade ball where guests are encouraged to dress in their finest gear, with shimmering dresses, tuxedos, and anything that goes. It always makes for a fun and exciting night when your guests can escape reality for a little while, let loose and have some fun.
