With the holidays already here, this is the best time to start planning for a successful New Year’s party. Whether it will be for family alone or you will also invite your close friends, it’s good to give them an experience that they’re not going to forget in a short time. Have a look at five ways to get your apartment ready for a New Year’s bash that will make it easy and fun for everyone involved.
Decorate With 2022-Themed Decor
It’s safe to assume that many people want to put this past year behind them, so make sure you help them look towards the future by using 2022-themed decor to decorate your apartment. Your friends and family will be happy to be a part of this bash and they will feel like they’ve truly stepped out of this year and into the next in a festive way. With over 111 million people living in rental spaces in 2017 in the United States, this number may have since gone up, and if you’re currently renting your apartment, it’s a good idea to get decorations that won’t leave a permanent mark when it’s time to take them down.
Create a Resolution Board Your Guests Can Add to
Making resolutions for the New Year has been a tradition for as long as many of us can remember, and there’s no reason to end this tradition now. Make it fun and interactive by creating a resolution board and inviting your guests to add their resolutions. This way, you can even save it and remind them all about it the next time you all come together again and find out who managed to work on their resolutions. This should be a fun activity, so resolutions of all kinds should be encouraged. Create a board with a white poster board, index cards, and a variety of Sharpie colors!
Ensure Your Bathroom Is Clean and Organized
Wherever there is a party, the bathroom is often a popular space. Make sure that yours is presentable by cleaning and organizing it so that it’s in a great state for your guests. Make sure there is enough toilet paper and other toiletries like hand wash and air fresheners, too. If yours is one of the 12.43% of bathrooms that have a modern design aesthetic, find hand towels, storage bins, a dustbin, and other accessories that complement this aesthetic so that there is an aura of organization.
Stock Up On Champagne and Appetizers
For a party to be fun and successful, it’s good to have enough appetizers and champagne. This will help your friends feel more comfortable and loosen up as they gear up for an amazing cross-over into the New Year. The champagne will create a great atmosphere, and people are a lot more likely to want to pop champagne while nibbling on appetizers than they are to want to eat heavily. Prepare food as well to give your friends and family a memorable experience.
Design a Wall for New Year’s Photos
To end the year with a bang, consider putting up a wall for New Year’s photos, and you will be left with a memorable keepsake after the party. There are many handy printers that can be used to print photos immediately after they’re taken, so you can get one and use it at the bash. Your guests will also be happy about the fact that they can leave with a physical memento, even if they have their own photos on their phones, as the interactive nature of this option is what makes it attractive. Take care not to get into trouble with your landlord by putting up anything permanent, however, because many lease violations currently allow a landlord to terminate the lease if the violation is not fixed within three to 30 days.
Give the five ideas above some consideration if you want to have an amazing New Year’s party. This way, you will end this year and greet the next one quite memorably!
