Plan and Create your Guest List

When it involves party, a crucial  step in planning any party including a New Years Eve party is to first consider your guest list. This obviously is important because it will help you in determining where to hold the party.

Say for example,  you have a fairly small home and want to host a party for over one hundred people, you obviously will have to consider shifting/ hosting the party either in a much larger house or even in a catering hall or restaurant.

When you are in the mood planning your guest list, you should not forget to figure each solely guest will likely bring a date with them. This only is reasonable and it would be considered tacky to tell guests they are not able to bring a date to the party. You certainly won't get great responses from your invites when they hear that.

Then, consider your budget: come up with an estimate of how much you are likely to be spending on the event. These includes expenses like booze, furniture rentals, bartenders, and decorations. Decide whether you will be treating or charging your guests some fee to attend.

How To Invite Your Guest to Your Party [guest Invitation Medium]

It doesn't just end in making a guest list. Deciding whom to invite is not the only concern here. You should also consider the means/ how you plan to invite your guests. You have a number of options here.

The most "used to and still working" traditional way to invite guests to a party is to mail out invitations to each individual guest, dating or married couple you plan to invite to the party. Yes, the invitations should include all of the crucial information including but not limited to the date, time and location plus, it also should include instructions for responding to the invitation.

Don't worry, I have got you covered **smiles** These instructions should include a deadline for responding and a method of responding such as calling by phone or sending an email. Yes, you want to show them some authority and let them know its not a loosed kid stuff kind of party. But be careful not to sound rude when out laying these instructions.

Other options for sending invitations include calling the guests or sending out an electronic invitation via email. Although paper invitations were considered the only method for a while, it is now considered acceptable to send out other non traditional invitations for any party or event.

Food and Beverages

So now, you have your theme, guest list, ways to invite your guest and venue all planned out for your new years eve party. Once you have determined the number of guests and the location of the party, it is time to consider the food and beverages for the party.

Since most New Year Eve party starts rather late in the evening, appetizers and cocktails will certainly make an excellent idea for food. However, if you plan to start your New Years Eve party at an earlier time such as five or six o:clock (6.00pm) in the evening, you should consider having more substantial food at your party.

You might opt for an elaborate sit down dinner or include a buffet in your party. Still another food option for New Years Eve parties is to host a brunch on New Year's Day. You may offer finger foods, appetizers and cocktails in the evening and early morning but then, start serving breakfast items as the sun starts to rise.

This sure allows the party to go on a little longer because guests do not start leaving just because they are beginning to get hungry.
