Ring in the new year with a relaxed and laid back party. This goes perfect for adults as well as children.

One idea is the pizza party. Talk to the vendor in advance if you are going with a large order. Bring in some pizzas, garlic breads, drinks, and pair it up with the golden memories of the year that’s almost gone.

At the same time, you can also plan a relaxing pajama/spa party. Don your cute PJs and chill your way into the new year.

Or maybe, organize a movie marathon! Enjoy back to back movies with your family and BFFs. Ask your guests in advance of their movie choices so that everyone can enjoy their time.

Plan a few games like quizzes and puzzles in case your guests feel up to it.

#3 Go Retro with Movies!

Welcoming the new year with some great entertainment is the best way to treat your guests. And what’s better than a fun games night?

One way is to organize a Casino Night. Prepare some general casino games like Poker, Craps and Bingo Extra. Go as far as decorating the party space like a casino.

Another way is to pull out some Board Games like Housie (Tambola), puzzles, Chess, Ludo, Monopoly, Business, Risk etc. Choices are endless! This theme suits children as well.

Whatever you go with, ensure there are a lot of fun games to attend to, tasty menu to browse from and good music going in the background. Nothing makes the party mood like food and music.
