What better way to ring in a brand new year than by throwing your own New Year’s Party? The first place to start is with invitations. Shutterfly has everything you need to make sure you start the new year off right with custom New Year’s Eve party invites.
One of the perks of hosting a party is that you get to call all the shots. Shutterfly has over 25 options to choose from to create your invitations. Once you select the design you like best you can get into the gritty details. Helpful bits to include are the time that the party starts and the place. Let your guests know if they should eat before or if there will be plenty of snacks. You can let people know if your party is child-friendly or if they should leave the kiddos at home. Make sure you include an RSVP by date and contact info so you can plan your New Year’s party with ease.
For a party that doesn’t flop, it can be helpful to plan a few activities to keep your guests entertained. A classic party staple is the DIY photo booth. In an area that is a little out of the way, hang a fun patterned sheet as a backdrop. You can find fun props for your friends and family to use in the photos. If you don’t happen to have a plethora of obscure objects lying around your house, a trip to your local thrift shop should be all that you need to gather a few choice items. Does your young adult want to participate in your party? A great way to let them feel like they are participating is to let them be the photographer.
It is also crucial to have plenty of snacks to keep guests happily munching throughout the night (and to encourage them to stay until the clock strikes midnight). Make sure to check if any of your guests have major allergies or food restrictions and be sure to label any foods they might want to avoid.
When setting the scene, a personalized photo runner is a great way to share your favorite photographic memories from a happy year. Remember the photo booth you set up? While your table runner is sure to be a hit with your guests as is, promise them at next year’s party their photo booth pictures will be the centerpiece.
What better way to start out a new year than by throwing a party for the ones you cherish the most? Surrounding yourself with the ones you love (and in the safety of your own home is a surefire way to end the last year on a high note). Custom New Year’s invitations from Shutterfly are bound to ensure that your next year is the best one yet.
