5 Modern New Year’s Eve Gatherings Ideas
New Year’s Eve is nearly upon us, and this year it’s looking like it will be a little more “normal” than the last year. While 2020’s new year was surrounded by worry and concern over the pandemic, 2021-2022 is looking for a lot more positive, and planning a party doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
Party Like It’s 1922
The roaring twenties got their name because it really was a roaring time for America, as it was finally able to function without the common threats from war and The Spanish Flu.
We’re now in the twenties of a new millennium, and it’s time to enjoy a modern type of party with your friends and family to welcome in a new year!
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Hold A Twenties Themed Costume Party
A lot of people love dressing up, and what better theme than a roaring twenties party?
It’s been a common theme for parties and gatherings when preparing for New Year’s Eve, and it’s sure to draw attention to your gathering.
It’ll be the best party of the year, with everyone dressed up like flappers, gangsters, and other types of costumed revelers from the time period. So, throw on some jazz and start planning!
Hold A Scavenger Hunt
Nothing says fun like a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt! The best part about throwing a scavenger hunt for your New Year’s party is that it can be done at any time in the day.
No matter how you do it, though, you’re sure to have plenty of fun. It can involve going around photographing different areas or items of interest and then combining clues to get more points.
Plan A Movie Night
For a movie night, it’s always good to go with a specific theme, like the 1920s or classic films.
Start by having classic films shown on your projector, such as The Jazz Singer (1927), Singing in the Rain (1952), or Gone with the Wind (1939).
Get in the snacks, have everyone bring their LoveSac alternative bean bag, and enjoy movies with friends and family until the clock chimes midnight.
Hold A Themed Dinner Party
Murder mystery parties are great fun, especially for adults with the ability to drink and be sneaky.
So, plan a party where people get dressed up and go around solving a murder mystery together at the same time. There are various theme options, but most have people in costumes trying to solve different mysteries.
Throw A Carnival-Themed Party
A party with a Carnival theme is always popular, especially for adults.
If you have the funds, you can hire circus performers and street entertainers to entertain your guests. Or better yet, ask some of your friends to dress up as a clown or strongmen!
You can also have common carnival snack foods, like cotton candy and peanuts.
Remember to plan in a bit of downtime between the party games; you’ll be surprised how many people will want to sit down after a long day of party and entertainment! There should be enough space for everyone to gather come midnight.
