When it comes to  planning a New Years Eve party, one of the most important items of business to consider is creating the guest list. This is no doubt important because the number of guests you plan to have at your party will have an influence in the number of the decisions at the party.

Some of these decisions may include but not limited to, the location of the party as well as the food which will be offered. However, this is not the only reason why it is important to create a guest list early. It is also vital  to do this so you can make plans for potential conflicts which are an unfortunately occurrence in any circle of friends. Yea, it doesn't have to be perfect at all times.

This article will discuss the mediation (time spent thinking)  a party host often has to perform and will also discuss how the guest list has an impact on other elements of the party.

Creating a Guest List for a New Years Eve Party - Avoiding Conflicts

One unfortunate "must happen" aspect of planning a New Years Eve party is that the host may sometimes have to make difficult decisions when he or she is creating his or her guest list. These decisions often arises if there are guests at the party who do not get along.

The host may be friends with all or most of the people they wish to invite, but they may also be aware

If the party is going to be a rather small event, the host then may have to decide to eliminate certain

If the event will be rather large, then it is less of a concern because, it is possible these people may not even see each other at the party and if they do, they will certainly not be pressured to interact because, there will be so many other guests.

However, the host will have to use his or her discretion when creating the guest list, and if he or she believes the guests will not be able to behave maturely at the party he or she may choose to remove, replace or eliminate one or more of the guests who is likely to cause a problem.

Creating a Guest List for a New Years Eve Party - Venue and Location Planning

The guest list will surely and greatly affect the location of the party. For example if you plan to host a small party for only a handful of guests, you will likely have no trouble hosting the party in your home.

However, if you plan to invite tens and hundreds of guest, it can be impossible to host the party in your home, unless you own an extremely large home. You will most likely have to rent a restaurant or catering hall to host your party in a location which will be large enough to accommodate all of your guests and somehow easy for them to go to.

Guests Size [Choosing The Perfect Venue]

The size of your guest list will also impact the location you select, because, many locations may set a minimum on the amount of guests required to reserve the room. What this obviously means is that, you will have to pay for a certain number of guests even if you do not plan to have this many guests in attendance.

Guests Size [Food Impact and Decisions]

The size of your guest list will also impact the food you plan to serve at your New Year's Eve party. Planning an elaborate sit down dinner for a few guests is relatively simple, but this becomes more difficult for a larger group.

If you invite many guests you may prefer to offer a buffet or only serve appetizers and desserts at your New Years Eve party.
