New Year's Eve Bash  Back to Events

Whether you choose to have an adults-only celebration or include the kids in the New Year's Eve festivities, bring in 2014 with a bang.

Before you send out the invitations, decide whether you want your celebration to be just for grown-ups or for families. You can still accommodate children at an adults' party by hiring babysitters and setting up a kids' party room. Just be sure to make a note on the invitation so guests know it's okay to bring their kids along.

Or have a kid-friendly New Year's Eve by planning activities such as a family slumber party that all ages can enjoy together. Provide party hat materials so the kids can design their own. Cut a semicircle from sheets of decorative scrapbook paper. Form a cone shape and secure it with tape or staples. Add ribbon underneath so the hats stay on kids' heads, and embellish the hats with glitter glue, feathers and beads.

Pack the party with fun New Year's decorations and let your neighborhood Publix start your new year right by providing the food so you can enjoy everyone at the party.

  • If you're having relatives over, quiz them about family events from the past year and encourage them to share stories by including silly questions such as "What did Grandma make for dinner on Mom's birthday?"
  • Have several corkscrews ready. In all the merriment, one may get misplaced. Also consider using decorative wine charms to help guests keep track of their glasses.
