The best way to celebrate New Year's Eve is to throw an awesome party to bid goodbye to the old year and herald in the new year. Bed Bath & Beyond is your destination if you're having family and friends over to sing Auld Lang Syne while watching the crystal paneled ball drop at Times Square, so you can do it in style. When you are thinking of New Year’s party ideas, whether your menu includes wine and cheese or mixed libations, we carry barware essentials from Artisanal Kitchen Supply. And for your hors d'oeuvres, chips and dips or other delectable delights, check out B. Smith’s impressive collection of serveware and flatware. Regardless of what you are serving and your theme, it is always a good idea to have attractive serveware to set the tone. To plan a memorable and enjoyable New Year’s party, have a theme including a color scheme. If you don’t want to have a load of dishes to wash after the party, you are better off using disposable plates and have plenty of them. We carry gold and black as well as silver and white party supply kits including napkins and paper plates. Nothing beats the timeless elegance of black, silver and gold when you want to say “Cheers!” And if you want a more modern theme, we have glamorous navy blue and gold.
When you are planning a New Year’s party, take stock of what you currently have by way of serveware, glassware. Then consider the menu and what serveware you need. Are you serving only hors d’oeuvres or are you also serving appetizers and dinner? Make sure you consider diet preferences, so you have something for everyone. To make it easy on yourself and your guests, you may want to consider setting a dedicated area for the hors d’oeuvres, and/or appetizers and desserts. You could place labels by the food or have a menu displayed so guests know what the various food items are. This food area also becomes a cozy nook for guests to mingle and start conversations while helping themselves to the delicacies. Our tiered serveware from B. Smith makes it easy to display your food and makes it easily accessible by your guests. And for multiple snacks, a multi-piece serving set will keep everything neatly together. Chips and dips are always a party favorite and we have plenty of options in chip and dip sets. Keep plenty of serving spoons, forks or serving tongs to prevent cross-contamination. You can always check Bed Bath & Beyond if you need any. Make sure you have plenty of napkins and plates as well as forks by the food, so guests can help themselves. Also provide easy access to a trash can so guests can easily dispose of used disposable items.
New Year’s Party Ideas
New Year celebration is about having fun and setting the tone for the start of the new year. Any good host or hostess knows that means having food, drinks, new year decorations, and making sure everyone has a good time. Add some holiday flair with a seasonal tablecloth or table runner which goes with any New Year party decoration. Something to consider in your New Year’s party ideas is to plan for your guests to take lots of pictures to share on their social media sites or with their friends and family. Having some decorations on the wall will provide a festive backdrop for these memorable pictures. A few cool props would add to the fun and frolic. Enhance the ambiance with mood lighting including scented candles; and don’t forget glitter. We carry glittered stemware and stemless glasses as well as decorative festive plastic beverage glasses. We also offer personalized liquor labels to make your party more special. Unless you want to play bartender all evening, you may want to have a designated place for all your libations which should include champagne. This frees you to mingle with guests and make sure everyone is having a good time and enjoying the ambiance and refreshments. You can include a game or two to keep people engaged. Everyone loves to win something, so how about a trivia game or even a karaoke singing contest where the winner (chosen by loudest cheers) gets a prize. By creating the right ambiance and keeping the food and drinks stocked, you can rest assured it will be a New Year’s Eve party that will be memorable.
