Where did 2017 go? Here at DiSanto Propane, it seems as if the year flew by, and we’re counting our blessings. There’s no better way to end the year than by celebrating with your closest friends in front of your propane fireplace.

Why not throw a New Year’s Eve party at your place this year? You’ll avoid the long lines and exorbitant prices of celebrating at the local clubs or restaurants and have way more fun. Also, you’ll avoid the headache of trying to find a cab or Uber when hundreds of other partygoers are doing the same thing. What steps can you take to throw the perfect New Year’s Eve party?

Determine Your Guest List

This is your party, so you don’t have to subject yourself to spending it in the company of obnoxious coworkers or offensive family members. Finally, you can hand-pick the people you want to spend your evening with so you can have as much fun and as little drama as possible.

If you hate a big crowd, keep your guest list small. With the right company, intimate gatherings can be way more fun than the biggest, fanciest blowouts.

Create a Playlist

Nothing sets the mood of a party quite like the right playlist, and your music choices could make or break the party. Keep the mood light and fun, which could be reflected in your music selection. Making a playlist on Spotify is super easy, and you can always ask your kids to show you how if you are unsure. If you don’t feel like making the effort, you could simply find playlists other people have made by doing a quick search on Spotify. No matter which step you take, make sure that the music is good.

Food Menu

Make sure your guests have something you nosh on as they imbibe in the alcohol of their choice. Drinking on an empty stomach can make your guests feel sick, and nobody wants that. Some of you may go all out and throw a dinner party while others may prefer to keep out finger food for guests to nosh on while celebrating. The menu can be as basic or as fancy as you like; the bottom line is to have some food that people will actually enjoy eating.

Clean the House

Make sure your home feels as inviting and comfortable as possible before your party. Dirty homes repel partygoers, so clean your home prior to the party, paying attention to your kitchen, bathrooms and living room. Remember to clean your guest room as some partygoers are likely to stay the night.

Send the Kids to Grandma’s

New Year’s Eve is a time for you to let down your hair and relax, which means your kids should be out of the house. They’ll have a blast hanging out with grandma and grandpa, and you won’t have to worry about them. In fact, you could even consider keeping them at their grandparents’ house an extra day if you’ve had too much fun.

Pick Your Outfit

Don’t forget that guests will post pictures of the party of their social media feeds, so make sure you look good. If you really want to feel comfortable, you could throw a pajama party so that all the guests have to wear their pj’s. That way, you won’t look like a slob when everyone is dressed down together.

If a pajama party is not really your thing, you could dress up. To avoid any awkwardness, let your guests know ahead of time about the dress code.

By following these tips, you should have the best New Year’s Eve party ever! Just make sure that your propane supply continually flows so your fireplace stays lit.
