Keep the Entertainment Cheap
Instead of going crazy and running around searching for games to play for the night, opt for at home games or a downloadable game on your smartphone. Keep your guests entertained until midnight with a simple deck of cards or an app on your phone. With a deck of cards, you can play a variety of drinking games or just a regular card game. Smartphones also have free or relatively cheap apps that are available for multiple players. Check out your phone’s app store and see what hidden gems you can find to entertain your guests this year!
Don’t go over the top trying to impress your guests at your South Beach New Year’s party. Instead of going out and buying all New Year’s themed decorations purchase simple ones. Regular decorations will probably cost you a few dollars less and will still have the same effect as New Year ones. You can also use Christmas ornaments in a bowl as a centerpiece or hang them around your house.
Plan Ahead and Buy in Advance
The best tip for your party planning is to definitely plan in advance and shop early. Purchase all of your items a little bit at a time and search around for coupons. Coupons and sales will definitely be a blessing for your pockets and will allow you to buy more. Plan out what you want to serve and how many people you expect as early as possible so you can create a budget. Remember, the key to enjoying your South Beach New Year’s party is to stay calm and bring in the New Year with the people you care about most!
