Here are our Top 5 New Years Eve party games, to get you laughing into the New Year!

The name Game:

The Name Game is a super easy New Year’s Eve party game that’s great for a large group of adults looking for a fun but laid back game to play.

For this game, each guest will need to contribute some names to a large bowl. These can be names of celebrities, fictional characters, historical characters, and even people in the room.

Party guests divide into teams and take turns trying to guess the names on the slip of paper by giving each other clues. Keep track of points if you wish, or simply enjoy the fun of the game.

Two Resolutions and a Lie :

Two Resolutions and a Lie is the ultimate ice breaker and the perfect beginning to your New Year’s Eve party.

This game is a twist on the classic Two Truths and a Lie party game where guests have to try to figure out what the other guests are lying and telling the truth about. With this game they’ll have to figure out which two resolutions you really want this year, and which one is completely made up.

New Years Resolution Guessing Game:

Here’s a New Year’s Eve game for adults that will give everyone an opportunity to share their New Year’s resolutions. The trick is that you’ll need to playing a guessing game to find out who’s is who.

Use some slips of paper to ask the guests to list their New Year’s resolution, what they’ll do less of, and what they want to do more of.

Collect the resolutions in a big jar or basket and then have the guests try to guess which resolution belongs to which guest.

Cotton Ball Race:

This hilarious relay race uses cotton balls and two bowls. Divide your group into teams of from six to ten people. Mark a starting line on the rug with masking tape and place a bowl of cotton balls and a jar of Vaseline on a table.

Across the room, have another table with an empty bowl for each team. Each team lines up and on “Go!” the first team members dab Vaseline on their noses, dip their noses into the bowl of cotton balls, race to their team’s bowl, and deposit the cotton ball. Team members take turns, and the first team whose members all complete the race wins.

Banana Bump:

You will need a banana and an orange for each guest. Place a hula hoop in the center of the room and have the players form a circle around it at equal distances. The goal is to push the oranges into the hula hoop with the bananas. The task becomes more difficult and fun because the bananas are tied to the players waist, about a foot from the ground. Players cannot use their hands. The first to succeed at getting their orange into the hula hoop circle is the winner.

And don’t forget!

The most important part of any party is……..music. Because once those drinks are flowing we all need our favourite tunes to get the party started!

Top Five New Years Eve Party Planning Tips 

Plan the perfect New Years Eve party

Many of us have experienced New Years Eve Celebrations that didn’t quite live up to our expectations. So what better way this year to replace those  less than perfect memories with fabulous new ones having a New Years Eve party that your friends and family or work colleagues will remember forever!

As we all know, planning a good party can take some time as there is a lot to think about, so here are our top five New Years Eve party planning tips to help you plan your party and ensure it all runs smoothly.

The Invitations:

Get those invites out as early as possible because people start thinking of New Year as soon as the summer months are over. We would suggest sending out a ‘save the date’ card or email prior to sending out your formal invitation to ensure that your nearest and dearest can make it. Perhaps add some exciting information about your party, to create some anticipation.

Theme:

A fun theme can really make the party. The options are unlimited but cocktail parties are always popular or perhaps if you want something more formal and classic a masked ball theme with a great live band will deliver the right mood. When thinking of your décor, glamorous and rich colours such as gold and silver work well as they are festive and create a classic look. You can buy twinkling Christmas lights cheaply enough and scatter sparkly confetti on tables, with party poppers or party hats depending on your preference. Another popular option is a fancy dress theme which is limited only by your imagination.

Food & Drink:

If you are planning a big party then finger food and party snacks is always the easiest option for feeding guests. Finding the perfect caterer is an essential part of any large scale event. Weddings, corporate events, parties and family gatherings are all times when the services of a caterer might be needed. Unfortunately, there is no grading system for caterers and anybody can start their own catering business. We would suggest searching online for companies who have had recommendations or ask friends or families if they know of any good local companies.

Finding a venue:

From historic houses to local bars, theatres or village halls, there is a huge range of diverse party venues in the UK and there are plenty of sites online to help you with your search. Be sure to go and look at the venue in person and also ask about drink and food costs or whether you can provide your own catering rather than use their services.

Entertainment:

The most important part of any party, no big event is complete without music. Because once those drinks are flowing we all need our favourite tunes to get the party started!

If you want an energetic, exciting, professional band to make sure everyone at your event has a great time, The Right Hook are the right choice!
