New Year's Eve is one of our favorite nights of the year. It's a time to look back on the past, anticipate the future-- and, of course, always an excuse to throw a party! Try out some of these special New Year's Eve party ideas we put together for you, and you'll be well on your way to starting the next year off right.
Countdown Champagne Glasses
It wouldn't be New Year's Eve without champagne! Try this clever idea to make your servings of champagne all the more festive. Turning your everyday champagne glasses into numbered countdown champagne glasses can also make for a fun New Year's Eve activity: Have each party guest (over the age of 21) drink from their respective glass when the countdown to midnight reaches their number!

Guess Whose Resolution
Usually playing games is associated with a younger crowd, but why let kids have all the fun? To keep things exciting at your New Year's Eve party, incorporate New Years-Themed games like Guess Whose Resolution. For this game, have everyone write down their New Year's resolutions on separate strips of paper. Then mix the strips of paper up, and have your guests guess whose resolution belongs to whom! This can lead to a lot of fun and laughter-- especially when people guess wrong.

A countdown cheesecake (or any other countdown-themed dessert) is a delicious and adorable way to tie in the countdown theme of New Year's Eve. Just try not to let your guests eat the whole thing before the clock strikes 12!
