Now that Christmas is over, it is time to focus on the next holiday....New Year's Eve! It seems that the day after Christmas, the most popular question is: "What are you doing for New Year's Eve?" In an effort to help all Getaway Girls answer this question, here are a few ideas from The Getaway Girl herself:
If you are up for traveling, here are some top New Year's Eve celebration party spots:
·New York City – Times Square & STK
·Miami – The Shore Club & Mansion
·Las Vegas – Palms Hotel
·Seattle – The Indulgence New Year’s Eve Bash
·Los Angeles – LAX
·New Orleans – Jackson Square
Want to stay home (or close to home) and still celebrate the end of 2008? Here are some New Year’s Eve party ideas that are appropriate for all ages:
·Ring Out the Old Year Party – Play up the “out with the old, in with the new” phrase and pick a decade or time in history to represent the nostalgia of years past. Ask guests to dress according the era and decorate accordingly.
·Fortune Telling Party – Invite friends over to predict their good fortunes for the New Year. Guests can dress as gypsies and the party site can be decorated as a gypsy or palm readers’ house. Activities may include a poker table (for anyone who feels lucky), lottery card scratch offs and a hired fortune teller or palm reader.
·New Year’s Eve in New York City – Cannot actually be in NYC for New Year’s? You can still throw a NYC-themed party to help friends and family ring in the New Year. Ask guests to dress up and decorate the location NYC-style. You can also borrow some Sex and the City ideas and serve Cosmos or have a replica of the NYC ball in the room.
·Casino Night – Wish you could be in Vegas for the end of the year? If not, bring Vegas to you and your friends. A very cool New Years Eve Casino Night is a fun way to ring in the New Year. Ask guests to dress in black tie and rent poker tables, dealers, etc and make your party more than just a “roll of the dice.”
Whatever you decide to do for New Year's Eve, be safe and careful and have a great time!
