Make it a luau — If you have the space, decorate your largest room with a tropical theme to help your guests forget about the cold outside. Have your guests dress or bring a change or summery clothes as you great them with colorful leis and fancy cocktail glasses. Oversized hats and sunglasses, tropical table decorations and cheap tourist cameras to capture the night will cap off the festivities.
No exercising allowed — How many people do you know are making getting in shape their resolution? Well, give them one more night of freedom during your party by putting up caution tape in front of those exercise DVDs or books. This should set them at ease as they enjoy some chips, pretzels, sodas, etc., for one more night.
Last puff area — Quitting smoking is another popular resolution for the new year, so why not set up an outdoor smoking area for those who want that last puff? Set up some velvet rope a-la a movie theater and a butt bucket to make them feel special the night before their smoke-free journey.
Party favors — What better way to end a party than a little bag of goodies? Send your guests home with the certain after-party necessities: bottle of water, aspirin, and a snack will be much appreciated while they sit in the backseat on the long ride home.
