Music to pick
It’s always essential to have a good party playlist, make sure you have a selection of memorable songs from the year, no matter how rubbish! Alongside some party favourites of course, Grease Medley and the Cha Cha Slide anyone?
Add a theme to your event. Even though it’s last minute, a theme such as everyone wears their favorite or most despised trend of 2014. This will not only be fun and entertaining but easy to manage costume wise as well, even for the most anti-fancy dress party-goers! flatform trainers anyone?
Never feel bad for saying goodnight, if you have stragglers until the early hours of the morning, and it’s obvious the parties over, casually end the evening on a high. But don’t forget to pre-enlist a few friends to stay over if possible, to assist in the cleaning up on New Year’s day!
Above all though, don’t panic! At the end of the day if there’s enough to eat and drink and a place for people to dance, you’re on to a winner. Don’t spend the whole night freaking about what could go wrong or what everyone else is doing. Remember to mingle with your guests and save the cleaning till the morning!
