So you’ve volunteered to host the New Year’s Eve party this year, and all your guests have to do is show up, eat, drink, and be merry. You have the guest list ready. You’re prepping the food in the oven. And you want to impress your guests without spending a fortune. Before you start pouring the drinks and setting the atmosphere, you’ll want these eight things to make your party a night you and your guests will never forget.
Make sure everyone stays clean and washes their hands in style. What better way to do so than with our holiday soaps you and your guests will love? Take a look at our holiday soaps with whimsical designs featured on the Carved Solutions holiday guest soap gift set. This set comes with 4oz square guest bars. They’re made with a water-based fragrance, safe for sensitive skin and noses. Straight from Vermont, these soaps are all 100% vegetable-based and triple-milled. Check out all of our Christmas soaps for the holidays.
Set the mood and bring on the holiday cheer with candles. They’ll make your room smell amazing and add to the ambiance. Enjoy the nostalgic scent reminiscent of vintage seed packets with the Finding Home Farms 13 oz. cinnamon pinecone soy candle. The fragrance oils are both phthalate-free and paraben-free. If you have delicious food cooking in the background, the best part is that the scent is made to blend into your space and not overpower it. Get the scent of the holidays all year long with any of our Christmas candles.
If you don’t have any wall art or a centerpiece in your living room or kitchen for the party, your party will seem quite bare. Get a decorative accent that you’ll enjoy all year long, even after the party. If you’re looking at a permanent art fixture for your wall, you’ll love the Kalalou floral print wall art. The colored floral print is a statement piece that works as a standalone piece in your living room or adds a touch of sophistication above the mantel. This canvas print is full of style and drama to add plenty of style and warmth to any room in your home. If you’d instead just put something on a table or a shelf and call it a day, then go for our Alair 2 tier counter etagere from Napa Home and Garden. Display your favorite homemade treats or the storebought ones that will look like they were handmade, thanks to the farmhouse-style kitchen design of your new favorite kitchen centerpiece.
A New Year’s Eve party is a special occasion. Make sure you have the right dinnerware and drinkware for your celebration. If you’re serving wine and cheese or any kind of charcuterie board, you’ll want our Picnic Time brie cheese cutting board with tools. It’s designed for style and function thanks to the swivel-style, split-level circular cutting board made of eco-friendly rubberwood. It’s sure to be a conversation piece at your New Year’s Eve party.
Liven up the room with some plants and greenery. Natural elements add instant cozy to any space. Think lush green plants to help soften any stark corners in your space. You don’t need to add a bonsai tree and have a green thumb to enjoy the benefits of natural greenery. Adding simple succulent plants is a low-maintenance investment for adding nature to any room.
Have kiddos running around at your party? Take a look at our bean bags for kids and keep them comfy in our kid-sized bean bags. All you need is the regular round bean bag insert, and then you can choose from any of our fun covers, like one that looks like an owl or a moose. As for the adults, let them kick back and relax while they have their feet up on an ottoman like the boho indoor pouf made out of 100% cotton. Between us, the adults can probably sit on the bean bag too.
Your guests want to show off their polished dress shoes and gorgeous high heels. Before they come in, let them wipe their soles in style with a fun welcome mat. Our mats also come in seasonal designs to help add to the holiday cheer. Our mats come with nonskid backing, all certified slip-resistant by the National Floor Safety Institute. We’re keeping you and your guests safe while your home is looking fabulous with your new holiday doormats. Make it your own by getting any of our personalized doormats.
When in doubt, it’s all about the food. You may have a larger course planned and cooking in the oven, but you’ll want treats to whet your guests’ appetites. Get treats that they’ll love munching on, like our Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn holiday favorites popcorn bundle. Feast on the sweet combination of molasses candied popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkled with sliced almonds and chunks of molasses cookies. The holiday season isn’t over yet, so check out all of our Christmas food gifts.
With all of these elements at play, your New Year’s Eve party will be unforgettable. At least until the next one. Happy New Year!
