Giving these advantages and disadvantages, as well as the costs associated with hosting a New Year's Eve party in a restaurant
or catering hall, many people opt to host their New Year's Eve party in their home.
When planning a New Year's Eve party in your home, it is very important to carefully consider your guest list. This is
important because you should limit the number of guests you invite according to the size of your home and the rooms in your
home you wish to use for the party.
For example, you may have an extremely large house; but, if you wish to limit the party to the kitchen and dining room,
you should consider limiting the number of guests you invite to a number which will fit comfortably in these rooms.
Or, if you plan to use your entire house for the party, you should still consider how many people will fit comfortably
for activities such as eating, dancing, and socializing.
Another factor to consider when planning a New Year's Eve party in your home is how you plan to entertain your guests.
Hiring a band or DJ or playing your own music is one of the most popular entertainment options for a New Years Eve party.
If you plan to have a band or a DJ, you should consider providing a dance floor for your guests. The dance floor does not
have to be big but it should be large enough for at least some of your guests to dance and have a good time.
Another entertainment option is showing a series of movies. The movies can follow a particular theme or they can just be
fun movies you think the majority of your guests will enjoy. This idea would be best if you have a large screen TV in
order to make the movie viewing experience more pleasurable for a larger group. You should also consider seating options to ensure
you have enough seating for each guest with an unrestricted view of the screen.
Another factor to consider when planning a New Year's Eve party in your home is how you plan to deal with potential problems
such as spilled food and drinks. If you have new and expensive carpeting or flooring, you might be very concerned about this
One option is to take preventative measures by covering flooring which would be permanently damaged by spilled drinks or
food. This will likely not be very attractive and many hosts prefer to only offer food and drinks in areas of the home
where spills will not be extremely damaging.
