Organizing a New Year’s Eve party: Tips and checklists for New Year’s Eve party planning

To ensure that the period between Christmas and New Year is not too stressful, it is a good idea to start planning the New Year’s Eve party in good time. Our checklist ‘Planning a New Year’s Eve party’ summarizes the most important steps to ensure that everything is ready for the big night:

New Year’s Eve party planning: approx. 1 month in advance

  • Send out invitations in good time and ask questions if necessary: Which song should be played? Which drinks should we offer? Do any guests have food intolerances?

  • Decide on the party location that is big enough for all the guests (e.g. living room, party cellar).

  • Decide on how the party will be catered: Will you do all the catering, will there be a catering service, or will the guests contribute something?

  • Give people plenty of notice if it’s a New Year’s Eve theme party.

  • Get your own party outfit.



    Bear in mind that…

    If you want to organise a larger New Year’s Eve party, e.g. for your club, there is of course more to consider. You should start planning the party two to three months in advance to book a suitable location, take care of the catering, and organize any entertainment if necessary.
