Gather all of your family and friends together and pick a New Year’s Eve theme for the party to make it special. Consider a New Year’s theme like a clock party theme and incorporate the countdown to the New Year theme into all the details of the party.
Try out these New Year’s Eve clock theme ideas:
- Invitations: Create your event on Punchbowl and choose from a variety of free New Year’s invitations to email to your guests. Include information such as the name of the event, date, time, and location.
- Decorations: Deck the party area with countdown decorations to complement the countdown party theme. Set up a large digital clock showing the hours, minutes, and seconds to the New Year as the main focal point of the party room. Hang decorations around the digital clock such as bright LED lights and Happy New Year signs. Set up a section of the room with clocks that show the times in different time zones. Depending how long the party lasts, pop open a bottle of champagne and celebrate each time a new time zone celebrates the New Year.
- Food: Serve delicious food during the New Year’s Eve countdown theme party and organize the set up to resemble clocks. Set up a platter with a variety of 12 different condiments. Include small ramekins of ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, relish, olives, pickles, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, red peppers, green peppers and hots. Place two sticks of celery in the center to represent the hands of the clock. Organize another platter with twelve stacks of different cheeses, all in a circle to resemble a clock. Serving twelve meatballs on a plate is fun another idea.
- Favors: Pass out party favors such as maracas, noise makers, and horns to guests a few minutes before the stroke of midnight. Stand near the large digital clock, and facilitate a countdown. Encourage guests to use the favors to celebrate once the clock reaches twelve!
Picking fun themes for New Year's Eve parties make the party unique and memorable. Have fun and celebrate the New Year and count down in style!
