How to prepare your house for the New Year’s Eve party?

Christmas is almost one and we already make plans for New Year’s Eve. Many people go to restaurants or clubs , to all those places where they organize parties and just enjoy everything. But there are lots of others who organize the New Year’s Eve party at their homes and they could always use some tips about how to do that right. Here are a few tips.

First of all make sure all the corners in your house are perfectly clean and dust even the most remote places, as there is nothing more unpleasant than being invited in an untidy house where you feel unwelcome.

Then make the house a bit more festive than usual by adding some nice flower arrangements , tinsel, fresh holy, candles, some colored balloons or whatever you might think fits your home and makes it look good. Buy some special festive napkins and a nice matching table cloth, as this  really is a special occasion.

Make sure you know the exact number of your guests, so that you can prepare enough plates and tableware. Do ask if they come with kids or not and make sure you know their ages and in case they come with children organize a special place for them in a separate room and if there are some very small children ask an older relative for help for supervising them.

It would be a good idea to have the table with food in a separate room where you can all sit down and enjoy the feast in peace and only after that go dancing and feeling jolly. This way you avoid accidents like having the table hit by mistake or upsetting some people that sit at table and can’t hear what they are saying.

Remove all delicate things from the room with the party because accidents do happen when there are a lot of people around and it is better to avoid them.

Give funny hats to the guests if they are “cool” enough to wear them and make the party merrier this way. Keep the clock and the champagne glasses close when it’s almost midnight, as you do not want to miss the festive moment by looking for them in the kitchen. These being said have a nice party and a good year!
