Planning The Perfect New Years Eve Party

We’re only a few weeks away from December 31st, which means New Year’s Eve party planning should be well underway. But with all the festive fun and frolics to look forward to this end-of-year celebration often gets pushed to the back of our minds. As a popular hotel in Cheltenham, we have thrown many NYE bashes in our time and know the top tips for planning the perfect party.

The Invitations
Make sure you send out invites as soon as possible, to ensure you your guests don’t make any conflicting plans. A ‘save the date’ card or message also works well and can create excitement and anticipation for what’s to come.

Plan Ahead
Organisation is key, especially if you are hosting the party at your house. Take the pressure off by preparing your food, drinks, and accessories ready to go and laid out ahead of time. Finalise any themes ideas and start planning outfits, decorations and music.

Finding a venue
If a house party is definitely off your list, then there are various other venues options available. From historic houses to village halls, there is something that will suit your needs. Here at The Cheltenham Park hotel we have excellent facilities and a dedicated events team for anyone looking to hold NYE or Christmas parties in Cheltenham.

Food & Drink
When it comes to planning a big party then finger food and party snacks is always the best option. Finding the perfect caterer is an essential part of any large scale event. Our Cheltenham hotel has a team of chefs ready to cater for any party. Good food and drink is essential for a good time!

Party playlists
Set the right atmosphere for your party with some great music. Spend time preparing playlists to suit all parts of the night from the time guests enter, to the run up to midnight until the very end of the night.

Set the Mood
Setting the mood goes further than just selecting a few festive songs, make sure the lighting is right. Simple adjustments such as dimming the lights and burning candles can really get you in the party mood. Seasonal scented candles are a nice touch.

Send Them Off Safely
Truly care for your guests from start to finish and arrange taxis or book overnight stays where possible. Once you have an ideas of number you can make the necessary reservations.
