Planning that New Year’s Eve party? Then, you want to be sure it includes lots of fun games. The options are only limited by your imagination. Pictionary and charades are always party favorites. An Internet search will provide lots of ideas.
Here are a few suggestions of our own.
Ask Guests to bring an Unusual Noisemaker
Have a “craziest noisemaker” contest and be sure to shoot video! Replay each person with his or her noisemaker for the crowd and vote on who wins. Provide a prize to the winner, such as earmuffs. Then, get everyone together for the big midnight countdown and create your own symphony of racket, clatter, and boom.
“Hire” a photographer
Ask one guest to serve as the “official” photographer to take before and after photos, or do it yourself. As guests arrive, invite them to pose with one person seated and the other standing next to a chair (like an old-time photo-no smiling allowed). You could provide old-fashioned hats, and maybe a shawl or scarf for props.
Also, take pictures of your guests showing off their noisemakers. All these can be posted on your Facebook later to share.
Ask Guests to write predictions for the New Year
Have guests sign their predictions and place them into bowl or a box. Then, during supper, take turns reading the predictions while everyone guesses who wrote them. It can be a challenge guessing who made the predictions.
Have snacks and appetizers. Of course, drinks are a must. Be sure you have a good selection of sodas and water and choices of alcoholic drinks. While beer is always a popular alcoholic drink, consider adding some cocktail selections. Many people would prefer a good Bloody Mary. Wilks & Wilson’s Shake2Make Bloody Mary mix with the Vodka is a popular choice. It’s a complete drink, made with our renowned “the Mix that Kicks “Bloody Mary mix and vodka already added.
Speaking of cocktails, Mojito’s are another popular, but simple, cocktail choice. Here’s a Mojito recipe, using Wilks & Wilson’s own Millicent Lime Mint simple elixir.
2 oz White Rum
1 oz Millicent’s Lime Mint Simple
1 oz fresh Lime Juice
Shake with ice, and then strain into a highball glass. Top with splash of soda.
