Another one of New Year’s Eve Party ideas is to set up a “PowerPoint Party” night. For those who have been missing out on this TikTok trend, this party requires every member to create a slideshow and present it to everybody else.

Topics are up to the presenter – ranging from anything like “Where would everybody be in 10 Years?” to “Rating our favourite Starbucks Drinks”. This is a hilarious, lighthearted and unique activity to put your creativity to work!

Prepare some light snacks and beverages for every get together so nobody goes hungry. Continue the meet-up tradition during every New Year’s Eve Party and keep an archive of all the slides!

4. Champagne Party

What’s a New Year’s Eve Party without some champagne to match the festive mood? From its delectable taste to bubbly fizz akin to tiny fireworks – champagne is arguably a better way to welcome 2021 than wine. Other than the alcohol, prepare some light snack. You can prepare some easy snacks like popcorn and potato chips, or whip up simple dishes like cheese, oysters, fried chicken, and stuffed mushrooms. For mains, western dishes are fantastic – think dishes like pasta and risotto.
