Happy New Year!

New Years Party Ideas in my family...

New Years has always been extra special because it is my moms' birthday!

As a child, I always spent the night was a friend on New Years Eve. We would play board games, while her parents and other adult friends would play dominoes into the night. We would sit up, watch tv and say “Happy New Year” before going to bed.

As an adult, I’ve attended lots of New Years Eve parties. Some have been in parties in friend’s homes, with breakfast served after midnight.

I’ve also attended parties at clubs which had casino type games or a New Year’s Eve Murder Mystery to solve. All have been load of fun.

And New Years Eve Parties are fun because you can take another theme, such as a New York Party and adapt it to a New Years Eve Party! New York and that ball dropping are an iconic part of NYE, so it makes a perfect party theme.

One year I even attempted a New Years Day Party! 

I think that whenever you have friends get together for fun and time together, you can't go wrong. New Years is the perfect time to take stock of what you'd like to do with the year ahead, and who you would like to do it with.
