To ready the house for any party, including a new year’s party, homeowners should first thoroughly clean their homes of dust. Once this is done, you can spruce up the house with a few easy steps. Although the home may not be laid out for entertaining guests daily, one can always rearrange the furniture, to make it more party-friendly.

Lighting up your home for a new year party

Put some colored sheer cloth on lamps, to illuminate mood lighting. Twinkling fairy lights can be used to add some sparkle. Stuff Mirchi lights in colored bottles, especially red and place them around the house. For late hours, you can add stylish night lamps.

Furnishing and seating for entertaining guests

Eclectic drapes and furnishings, with a splash of colors, can enliven the home. Choose complementing colors, to create a welcoming feel. Buy some bright cushion covers, as you can use them whenever you have guests. Also, large cushions can double-up as easy seating options. You can also toss in a throw on your sofa, to add some color. Accessories, such as mysterious artifacts, lamps, and artwork, can make a lot of difference and add to the aesthetic appeal of the home. You can also decorate the entrance of the house, by arranging a dozen red roses in a flat container, along with lights all around the tub.

Menu for a house party

Plan your list, right from the starters and main course, to the desserts that you will serve. Try some creative garnishing and unique presentation of snacks and drinks. Regardless of the theme, one should have an elegant table decoration. For any table decoration for a feast, the presence of a celebratory centerpiece is a must. A classy crystal or an enchanting centerpiece can add a glamorous touch to the décor, along with candles and a bouquet of fresh flowers.

Entertainment options for a party

Ensure that you have a good selection of music in advance. To host a memorable evening, get some games like Pictionary, or pin the donkey, or even Housie. Games will help the guests to mingle and interact with each other. You can also set up a photo corner. The backdrop can be a bright blanket, with hanging string lights on either side. You can also add props like wigs, mustache, etc., to this space to help the guests to capture some happy memories.

Points to consider, while hosting a house party

  • The seating options should be comfortable and also stylish.
  • Use a subtle colored tablecloth that does not overpower the crockery. Sparkling dinnerware and colored glassware are perfect for celebrations.
  • Add folded napkins and bowls filled with colored sweets on the dessert table.
  • If you have a money plant on a moss stick, dress it up with fairy lights and keep it indoors.
  • Ensure your home smells fresh with Potpourri, reed diffusers and fragrant oils. You can use vaporizers for citrus scents and vanilla-scented candles, to create a refreshing atmosphere in the house.
  • For the bathrooms, add fresh napkins, bottles, and lotions in rattan trays and room fresheners.
  • Do not clutter the home with too many accessories and instead, stick to a theme.
  • If you have children around, ensure that candles are kept in safe places.
  • Keep a large and attractive trash can, so that guests can dispose of the waste at a proper place.
