New Year's Eve party ideas


2022 is just around the corner and with the year that we've all had, it couldn't come sooner. To mark the occasion, pour yourself a champers and get your home set up for a little celebration. Whether you're ringing it in solo or with a few close friends and family, we've got you covered for the party prep (because yes, you can still have a killer one-person party).


Dress the bar (cart)

First thing's first, get your drinks station sorted. Make sure they're always in arms reach with a bar cart on wheels, stocked with all your favourite beverages. Get festive and fill a glass with sparklers for when the clock strikes 12 or tie a few sparkly balloons around the handles.

DIY New Year party decoration 

There's no need to spend a bomb to get the house party-ready. For a fun photo backdrop, cut sheets of tissue paper into matching shapes, fringing the ends, and hang them overlapping on a plain wall or a large piece of cardboard. Mix some gold in there for a bit of sparkle. For ambient lighting, place tea lights in glass jars or candle holders around the house and dial down the main lights or just use one or two lamps instead.

Take it outside 

Beat the heat and set up your party station in the backyard or by the pool if you have one. Give your space a colourful revamp with some fresh outdoor cushions and keep the party going into the night with garden lights and festoons

Grazing board

No matter how big or small the guest list is, you can't go wrong with a grazing board. Fill it up with all your favourite cheeses and cured meats, as well as dips and crackers. If you're not sure where to start, check out how to cater for a crowd for presentation tips and platter ideas.

If grazing boards aren't your thing, make a selection of quick and easy canapes. Try out these mini quiches 4 ways so there's something for everyone, or get creative with these pretty chilli lime baked shrimp cups that are served in cases made from store-bought wonton wrappers.
