Karaoke

KARAOKE, BABY!

Every good party has music, but on New Year’s Eve take the music up a notch and have karaoke. In the old days, you had to have a karaoke machine, but not anymore. Now there are apps available that can be downloaded to tablets and phones that will make belting out favorite songs easy! The best part is that it’s so inexpensive; just the price of the app/music.

 

 

 

MAKE A TIME CAPSULE

Who doesn’t love a time capsule? Have your teens make time capsules to open at a later date. Have each teen answer questions about their interests, their goals for the future, and even their resolutions. Ask them to write something positive about their friends to include in their friend’s time capsule.

PHOTO BOOTH, PHOTO BOOTH, PHOTO BOOTH

We’ve found that teens never seem to tire of taking pictures, as long as the picture is their idea. Make a fun New Year’s Eve photo booth stocked full of props like glasses, feather boas, fake mustaches, props on sticks, and other items that they can be silly with. Consider providing a wireless photo printer so that the guests can take their images home with them.

 

 

 

snacks

PROVIDE SNACKS

Partygoers love snacks whether they are adults, teens, or kids, so be sure to have some good snacks. You do not want unhappy teenagers because they are hungry. Great ideas for snacks are sliders, pizza, chips and dips, and a variety of fruit.

 

 

 

GAMES

Provide some games that groups can play like Bunco, A Minute to Win It, Pictionary, Taboo, and more. The options are really unlimited, just be sure that you have any supplies on hand that are needed for possible gameplay.

 

 

 

dessert

DESSERT BAR

Dessert bars are our favorite way to make a party statement. They can be the focal point of the party and are super fun to decorate. Hang different colored tissue paper balls and a garland to draw the eye up, and be sure to arrange your dessert items on at least three different levels. This will add interest to the table and draw the eye to different areas. Find printable food labels that coordinate with your décor.

 

 

 

drinks

DRINKS

Consider having a signature New Year’s Eve drink for your guests. Make it fun and original and embellish it in some way so that it seems extra special. We love the idea of serving fruit-infused lemonade in Mason jars. You can select a few different varieties of fruit to infuse the lemonade so that there are several options.

 

 

 

sparklers

SPARKLERS

If your city allows sparklers, send the kids outside for a little sparkler fun. They can write their name in “lights” and just generally have fun socializing before the countdown begins.

 

 

 

BANG POTS AND PANS AT MIDNIGHT

I don’t think there is ever a point when banging pots and pans at midnight is too juvenile. Arm your guests with a pot or pan and a metal spoon so that they can make some serious noise once the New Year has officially arrived.
