Parties can be stressful if you don’t plan ahead. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I always use to keep the holiday stress low while still creating a super fun party. Here are my top five tips for a simple but impactful New Year’s Eve celebration!

  1. Prepare ingredients ahead of time for your signature cocktails. Chop, squeeze and measure the night before so all you have to do is set everything out when guests arrive.
  2. Have lots of fun props and decorations laying around for pictures and the countdown celebration.
  3. Prepare festive champagne glasses for the midnight toast by adding sparkling sugar to the rims or rock candy stir sticks.
  4. Give your guests personalized mini bottles of champagne to take home as favors.
  5. Ask guests to stick to a color palette (like white, silver and gold) to give everyone a reason to dress up. It’ll make your pictures look great!
