We're convinced the best place to celebrate New Year’s Eve is at home. Forget expensive venue tickets and long lines for drinks and food—not to mention those bathroom lines. And don’t even get us started on trying to find an Uber after the ball drops. Partying at home with friends is cheaper, easier and probably safer than being out on the town.
Not convinced? Here are three more advantages to bringing the party to you:
- You don’t have to figure out what to do with your coat and bag
- You can play the music you actually like, at whatever volume you want
- There’s no “last call!”
To make your New Year’s Eve soirée as stress-free as possible, make it a potluck. Ask each friend to bring something and assign an appetizer, main dish, side dish, dessert or drink. This spreads out the work and means all of the bases are covered. As the host, make sure you have enough plates, napkins, utensils and cups to go keep the party going.
