It’s not long now til we count down the final moments of 2015 and celebrate the new year with friends, family and most importantly, fireworks. The best way to make sure your guests always remember your stellar New Year’s Eve party — no matter how much they’ve had to drink — is to pick a great theme. Go all out with your costumes and decor and greet the new year with a bang.
1920s Gatsby Party
Nobody does an extravagant party quite like Gatsby, so take a leaf from the book of Luhrmann for a sure-fire hit this New Year’s Eve. Your guests will love an excuse to get all dressed up and a classy setting is easy to pull together with black and gold tableware for the look of luxe.
Make your friends feel like A-Listers with this New Year’s Eve theme where just about anything goes, just as long as the paparazzi don’t show up. Roll out the red carpet to welcome the stars of film, television and music to your own front door. This theme is ideal for parties where your guests don’t all know each other — who wouldn’t want to strike up a conversation with Amy Winehouse or ask Baby Spice why the Spice Girls really broke up?
1950s Hollywood Party
1950s Hollywood glamour is the perfect theme for a chic celebration. Put plenty of champagne on ice and ask your guests to dress to the nines for an elegant evening to see in the new year in style.
Your guests are sure to be intrigued by this theme, which promises mystery, decadence and a chance to dabble in some devilry until the clock strikes 12 and the masks come off. Take inspiration from the lavish masked balls of the Venetian Carnivale and check out our How-To guide for tips on making this theme a success.
