How To Plan a New Year’s Eve Party

New Year’s Eve is an exciting time of year for us here at It provides a chance for families and friends to come together and celebrate the beginning of a whole new year and, of course, a fresh slate for the coming months.
But if you think you’re going to get away with another New Year spent on the sofa watching the fireworks, think again! Why not make the most of this special occasion by throwing a New Year’s Eve Party in your residential park home?
You can invite the neighbours over for a wine and dine experience, or go all out with decorations and cheesy music to dance the night away.
There are so many options when it comes to New Year’s Eve parties that it can be hard to know which route to follow.
To help you, we have compiled the below short guide on how to plan a New Year’s Eve party in your park home. Click here for the UK's finest static caravan holidays now!
First of all, you need to decide on a theme. Whether you want to go all-out British or fancy dress, setting your party to a theme can help add to the fun of the night. If you want to go down the route of fancy dress, here are a few ideas:

Movie Magic
Roaring 20s
TV Stars
Dress to Impress
Glamour and Glitz
These are just five New Year’s theme ideas.
Once you have chosen your theme, it is time to get started on the decorations. Taking the Roaring 20s theme, for example, you could hang a few vintage posters around your residential park home, and invest in a few vintage fashion cut-outs.
There are plenty of vintage-inspired bits and bobs you can pick up. You could hang a string of pearls on the back of your guests’ chairs and invest in decorative feathers to pop into empty jars and bottles. If you want to let a few balloons float around, feel free to buy black, white and even gold ones to match the overall theme.
Themed banners, wall décor and table centrepieces are sure to make for a perfect New Year’s Eve.
For any party, choosing the right soundtrack is important. This is especially the case for a party with a Roaring 20s theme. It helps set the tone for the evening but be careful because too much in the way of cheesy tunes, and you may just lose your guests’ interest.
Below are a few ideas for what music to include if you are planning an evening of 20s glamour:

Three O’clock in the Morning – Paul Whiteman
Tain’t No Sin to Dance Around in Your Bones – Lee Morse
I’m Ka-Razy For You – Eddie Walters
You Give a Little Love – Bugsy Malone (1920’s Style)
Fat Sam’s Grand Slam – Bugsy Malone (1920’s Style)
I Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight (Charleston) – Ben Selvin plus Orchestra
Sugar Foot Stomp – Fletcher Henderson plus Orchestra (with Louis Armstrong)
These are just a couple of music suggestions for the night.
