After the over indulgences of Christmas (and a well-earned rest for many!), and just before we declare detox on our bodies (anyone else for Veganuary?!), it’s time to book in one final big blow-out as we prepare to party into 2020 in style!
The New Year’s Eve bar is always set high, and it can be a challenge to achieve bigger and better year on year. So, in this month’s blog, we aim to do just that, with some tips and ideas to add the wow factor to welcome in 2020!
TEN! SET THE THEME
Adding a theme to a NYE event can enhance your guests’ experience, bringing an extra element of fun and frolics to the party. Popular themes include The Great Gatsby, Casino Royale, Black & White Ball, and together with décor, dress code, food, drink and entertainment, give your guests a night never to forget!
NINE! WELCOME TO THE PARTY!
New Year’s Eve can be the biggest night of the year, and so immersing your guests into the festivities, on arrival, makes a big impression. Welcoming people with a themed walkabout act can give guests the star treatment, break the ice and create a conversation piece amongst the party goers.
EIGHT! IT’S ALL ABOUT THE GLITZ
If you can’t go all out with sequins and sparkle on New Year’s Eve, then when can you? An energetic and interactive, glamorous group of performers, such as our Groove Tonight or Estrellas Soul Trio, will ensure your guests are on that dancefloor, shaking their tail feathers until after the clock strikes midnight.
SEVEN! TICKLE THOSE TASTEBUDS
Imagine the fun to be had at an edible bubble volcano! Or watching nitro ice cream pods being made in front of your very eyes! Experimental food installations such as Charlie Creations bring a taste of immersive theatre, and not to mention delicious fayre, to any special event.
SIX! DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY
An frenzy of flapper dancers, a surge of American smooth tappers, a flashmob of freestyle hip-hoppers… Creating movement, drama, and a show-stopping visual display, such as our Vintage Dancers builds an atmosphere and can also create a congregation of guests in one place… an exciting way to bring people together, effortlessly!
FIVE! WHAT TIPPLES YOUR FANCY?
The sky is the limit when it comes to tantalising tipples over the festive season. For something really special, why not hire in a mobile bar or cocktail mixologist to offer a choice of themed cocktails, or even create your own with a cocktail masterclass?
From a giant Martini glass, to exploding confetti canons, a show-stopping classic burlesque act can bring a taste of Parisian showgirl to your event, whilst a comedy skit can add an air of cheeky fun to proceedings.
THREE! FACE THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE
Face and body painting is not just for the kids, with talented artists such as our Glitterbox ladies, creating extravagant designs for party-goers of all ages! Available as a roaming addition to the party or seated at a station for people to visit, guests can be transformed into party ready within minutes!
TWO! WIN BIG WITH OUR CASINO
Nothing says Vegas like authentic casino tables and croupiers, and with oversized $100 bills (which can be personalised with a logo or picture for your event), you’ll have the chance to hit the jackpot before the year is out!
ONE! REMEMBER THE COUNTDOWN!
It’s the greatest 10 seconds of the year; resolutions are made, promises are exchanged, even ‘big’ questions are asked, as we say farewell to the old, and hello to the New Year, full of excitement and hope. So make sure that countdown is spent wisely! Whether you use your entertainment act to get the crowd going, you opt for a countdown direct from the capital on the big screen; your guests are there to see in the New Year so make it BIG before you welcome the New Year with a grand group rendition of Auld Lang Syne!
