The countdown is over. New Year’s Eve parties in nightclubs are usually overpriced and overcrowded. This year, why not throw your own party to say farewell to 2021 with those closest to you?
Although the past couple of years have been marked by more disappointments than delights, many have had good experiences, such as meeting people they would not change for the world. But there is something we all agree on, and that is that music has always been there to heal us, accompany us and provoke endless emotions.
Parties are occasions when you can fill the house with flashy and bright decorations. Depending on the type of decoration you want, we recommend having a professional decorator to help you out.
But organizing a New Year’s Eve party is a lot easier than you think. All you need is a good guest list, great decoration, some drinks and appetizers and the most important of all: music.

Tips and ideas to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2022 at home
Is there a better way to say farewell to the year than with your favorite people? A pandemic is not going to stop us from wanting to party, so here are a few ideas for New Year’s Eve without leaving home.
Let the music flow!
The best way to get everyone dancing and singing along to their favorite songs is having live music at home.
We recommend you to organize your New Year’s Eve party hiring a professional DJ, who will be in charge of livening up the night, avoiding you having to create tedious music playlists:
You will have to prepare your living room as a dance floor, get a good sound system and let’s get the party started!
Make your table sparkle
Gold baby, gold! The New Year’s Eve party is an event of glitz and glamor, and there’s no reason why your table shouldn’t sparkle as much as the guests’ party dresses.
For table decorations, take advantage of the glamor of the party by using table runners and napkins with a metallic sheen, for example, silver or gold, or failing that, roll white napkins and use gold napkin rings, which will contrast nicely with your shiny white tableware.
To give a touch of humor to the personalization of the places where your guests will sit, you can use any object. You only have to place a label that you have designed, either by writing their names with your best handwriting, or if you prefer, you can create a design with your computer and print it on sticker paper, which you can easily find in any supply store.
For the centerpiece, why not use the decorations you used at Christmas? Shiny ornaments will look great if you place them in a glass vase in the shape of an hourglass, and you’ll also reference the countdown theme. Bell-shaped decorations are also very appropriate, and you’ll be celebrating the New Year in style!
Show off your party decorations!
Don’t feel pressured to embellish each part of your home. Making a great party and stylish atmosphere may be as straightforward as lighting candles and dimming the lights.
Here are a few ideas to decorate your home for a New Year’s Eve party:
- Paper snowflakes: Do you want to give a special atmosphere to your party? Well, you’ll just have to gather thin white paper, forming snowflakes.
- Lots of colorful streamers: Fill your ceiling with colorful streamers and glue the strips to the ceiling of your living room. You’ll see that it will give a festive air to the place. And you’ll enjoy it much more.
- Use lots of candles for decoration: If you want to give a warmer atmosphere to your 2022 celebration, you can use brightly colored candles to light your night. You won’t regret it!
Prepare an impressive New Year’s Eve Buffet
Buffet meals are especially practical at New Year’s Eve parties, and even more so after all the heavy Christmas meals. Small canapés are ideal served on sharing platters placed around the table, and appetizers like Italian crostini and bruschetta are quick and easy to prepare. Go for sushi if you want something more elaborate.
However, if you really want to impress your guests, place in the center of the table a bowl with crushed ice and seafood on top, visually it is impressive and can contain either seafood, smoked fish or cooked shrimp, depending on your tastes. To decorate, green avocado and red tomato will give a colorful festive touch.
Don’t let anyone go hungry and check if anyone has any food allergies or intolerances!
