New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting nights of the year. From the thought of starting anew once the clock strikes midnight to the endless numbers of celebrations held all over the world, New Year’s Eve is a night that everyone remembers. If you’ve decided to have a last-minute New Year’s party, don’t stress — these are a few must-haves that will make your party a huge success.


What else do you toast with when the ball drops at midnight? Make sure to have a few bottles of bubbly waiting for your guest to cheer with. For the adults, champagne or sparkling wine should do perfectly. For sober guests and children, sparkling grape juice is a great alternative.

Food for Everyone

First off, since it’s last minute, no one will be upset if you ask them to bring a small dish or snack for everyone to share. That being said, you should make certain that everyone has something to eat. That means making sure that you have vegetarian, dairy-free, vegan, and gluten-free options so no one is left hungry.

Extra Sleeping Spots

It’s no secret that some people can get a little too excited and friendly with the champagne during holiday celebrations. In order to be the best host and friend possible, have a few extra spots for guests to crash in the event that they are not able to safely drive home. Whether that be a guest bedroom, blow-up mattress, or just a spot on the couch, you will feel better knowing that everyone is safe.
