Trying to outdo yourself with this year’s New Year’s Eve party? No problem. We’ve put together some handy and rather fabulous tips to help you add some extra special sparkle to NYE 2018 for you, your friends and family…
- Serve cocktails with actual sparklers
This quite literally puts some extra sparkle into your party! Indoor sparklers for drinks are perfectly safe if used responsibly, and they can make your cocktail creations just a little more glamorous.
- Have a wine tasting competition
If your loved ones fancy themselves as wine buffs, challenge them to prove it with a wine tasting competition where they have to guess what each wine is or where it’s from in a blind taste test. You can even stick with your sparkly theme and choose sparkling wines – you can even buy red sparkling wines now!
- Hold a fabulous fireworks display
If you really want to push the boat out for your NYE 2018 celebrations, why not hold a spectacular fireworks display? No more craning your necks out the back door trying to see displays held miles away, as you can do it all yourself. Choose and buy your fireworks, read all the safety and firing instructions and make sure you have enough space – and make sure you pick someone responsible to run the display who hasn’t been drinking.
- Choose a Hollywood glamour display for your decorations
If you want a NYE party with a bit more pizzazz, choose glitter, gold and sparkles for your decorations! The Event Experts have a party shop full of glitzy party poppers, light box decorations, tablecloths and lots more to be-sparkle your party from top to toe.
- Put candles and sparkly lights everywhere
To properly celebrate a special event like the start of a brand new year, you need to set the scene. Make your home or party venue as cosy and sparkly as possibly with liberal use of candles (but be careful not to put them near curtains or places where they may get knocked over), fairy lights and other mood-setting lighting.
- Hire some staff
For this one night of the year, why not hire some staff to serve drinks and food? If you have the budget or you’re organising a big event, it can add a real touch of class to the evening. As a big added bonus, it also means that you don’t have to do any work – simply relax and enjoy the party!
- Choose an indulgent centrepiece
Every amazing party needs a centrepiece, a beautiful display to make a fabulous first impression and to get everyone talking. Yours could be a cake, a chocolate or champagne fountain, an incredible floral display or even just a traditional tower of Ferrero Roche. Make it yourself if you have the time and the skill, or order yours in advance.
