Who, Where & How?
Planning a New Year Eve's party needs to be done way before time. Because most of the people would have their own plans for the night, you need to announce it beforehand that you're planning to host a party at the new year's eve. Whether you're going to host it at some club or at your own place, you need to have yourself a party planner. Moreover, decide whom you're going to invite, so that they can make up their mind for attending your party. Send the invitations using e-mail, text or social networking sites such as facebook. Make sure you do that at least two weeks prior to the event.
Selecting a Fun Theme
Be careful while you're selecting the theme for the party. Make sure that you can make the all the necessary arrangements such as the food, decor, music and other such preparations for the party.
Food & Drink
Appetizers and salads can serve to be great starters at the party. Your guests would like to snack on to something every now and then, and for that you should have the dishes filled at all times. Furthermore, don't just keep all the dishes at one place, instead distributed the dishes in a scattered manner around the premises, so that the guests can easily access to them.
Choose the Right Music
Don't make the mistake of bringing up the whole of your music library. Instead make playlists that are especially designed for the occasion. Download a few party tracks, or if that doesn't work out, you can always log on to online music streaming sites such as jango.com and myspace.com which can provide you a relative music playlist to a song that you choose to play.
Photographs make Memories
Moments live long in the memory when they're photographed. And you can make your party one to remember if you've taken all the right photos. For that purpose, you can hire a photographer to cover your whole event, taking quality pictures. However, if you're falling short on budget or have failed to get an appointment with a professional then you can simply do that by yourself as well. Make a photo booth in front of a white background, or just use a plain white bed sheet for the purpose. This could prove to be an interesting activity and an effective time-killer while the rest of the guests arrive.
Careful with the Booze
If you've decided to include alcoholic beverages in your party planner than do make sure to make the necessary steps required for keeping the party a pleasant one. If you're having some friends over who just love to drink, then make the arrangements for them to spend the night at your place, or call them a cab just to ensure their safe return home.
