It’s that time of year again – the resolutions are flowing, the holiday Champagne bottles are popping, and there is no shortage of spirit in the air. With all the holiday happenings in December it can be tough to nail down your New Year’s Eve plans: finding that perfect magical event, rounding up your friends, purchasing a ticket before they sell out, the list goes on…

So, why not skip the club scene all together this year and throw an amazing get together in your apartment? You’ll get to be around your friends and loved ones, and save a bit of cash.

Read on to see our tips on throwing the perfect NYE bash right in the comfort of your own home.

Avoid a mess in the kitchen by eating pot luck style

Don’t waste valuable time cooking (or cleaning) that you could be using to glam up for the evening. Ask your guests to each bring a little something to snack on. That way, your table will be full without all the trouble!

When in doubt, Pinterest it out!

We know what you’re thinking: “I don’t know how to throw a New Year’s Eve party – and besides, I can’t afford it!”

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there too!

A quick Pinterest search is sure to present you with all the best DIY decoration, food, and drink ideas. And the best part? Most Pinterest ideas are totally simple and affordable.

Invest some time into the perfect playlist  

While there is something extremely satisfying about ringing in a New Year with an amazing DJ booth (complete with lights and smoke machines, of course), the perfect playlist can give just as good an effect.

Skip the DJ booth this year and spend some time on your favourite music app – we promise, you won’t regret it… and your guests will appreciate it!

Whether you’re at an event, a club or in the comfort of your own home this NYE, make sure you ring in the New Year surrounded by the people you love.
