With Christmas now less than a fortnight away, there’s no escaping that New Year’s Eve is not far behind. For some the thought of organising a New Year’s Eve party can be a daunting and pressurised prospect. But don’t worry; if you haven’t got your plans nailed down yet, we have some fantastic New Year’s Eve party ideas to see the New Year in with style. Whether you prefer to keep things low-key or you want an all out party, we have something for everyone!

Add an Element of Mystery and Drama

For a lot of people, New Year’s Eve is about doing something different from the norm that will make it more memorable and fun. This is where taking part in events could be the perfect solution.

With a themed murder mystery night, you and your friends can get dressed up and into character ready to solve the murder, whilst also having great fun and frolics along the way. Furthermore, with an organised murder mystery event, you won’t have to worry about party planning, as everything will be laid on for you, meaning you can just focus on having a good time.

Head Out on the Town

New Year’s Eve is one of those nights where there is always something happening somewhere, and if you love nothing more than being surrounded by friends, family and some cheery strangers, then a night out on the town could be just the ticket.

Whether you head to your local pub, or you pre-buy tickets to an exclusive New Year’s Eve Party at a swanky venue, there will inevitably be an infectious atmosphere that will make sure 2017 gets off to a great start. Just remember if you are planning to head out on New Year’s Eve most venues will be ticket-entry only, so to avoid disappointment it’s a good idea to book ahead.

Keep Things Sophisticated

If you’re not a big fan of large crowds and parties, and want something a little more civilised, then why not book a meal with your nearest and dearest at your favourite restaurant. Without the stress of cooking a complicated meal, you can sit back, relax and be waited on all evening and enjoy spending quality time with your friends.

A lot of restaurants will be hosting special New Year’s Eve menus and in some cases put on entertainment, so you’ll be sure to get a tasty meal and have lots of fun in the lead up to the celebrations at midnight.

A Cosy Night in

Of course, not everyone fancies heading out for New Year’s Eve, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still make an event of it with a cosy night in. If you’re planning on having a quiet one this New Year’s Eve, get your friends round, put the bubbly on ice, order a takeaway and watch the celebrations unfold from the comfort of your sofa. The London fireworks are always an impressive sight, or you can step outside into the cold night air at midnight and watch local fireworks going off around you.

It can be the perfect stress-free and relaxing New Year’s Eve party where the focus is on being together rather than traipsing around town or queuing for hours to get a drink at the bar.

However you decide celebrate the end of the year and the start of 2017, be sure to have a little forward planning, as inevitably venues get booked up and getting around on public transport can be challenging. Regardless, make sure you have your loved ones close by and a glass of something to toast the start of a new year at midnight.
