You don’t have to adventure into your local town or nearby city to celebrate your New Year’s Eve. Staying in with some great company, tasty food and free-flowing drinks is always a good idea. Here are a few tips on planning your stay-at-home party…

Plan your theme

Just because you’re staying does not mean you have to wear your pyjamas, unless you want to of course! Tell your guests your theme of choice in advance and ask them to pull out all of the tops! It is
New Years Eve after all!


If you want to create a good party atmosphere in your own home then purchasing (or making) a few decorations to set the celebrations scene is a great idea. Think big balloons that say ‘happy new year’, hats and different props people can use to take some great photos with! For a huge range of decorations check out Party Delights.

Arrange Activities

Entertaining to your guests can be hard work but if you plan a range of different games and activities to do through your evening then you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself too! Some great ideas include different card games, the funniest and most embarrassing thing you’ve done in 2019 and new year’s resolutions! This will get everyone involved and if you’re all having some alcohol add in some great drinking games.

Memorable meal and drinks

It is so important to have some great food and drink choices to have through the evening. Are you going to have a nice evening meal? Order in a tasty and easy take away or just have some nibbles throughout the evening?

As for drinks, having some champagne is absolutely essential! Other great ideas would be cocktails, beer, cider and spirits and mixers.
