Christmas day is the event we spend most of December planning. Whether it’s organising presents or planning what we need to buy for the gorgeous Christmas roast, we often have little time to think about anything else.
But what about New Year’s Eve?
This magical party night certainly ensures that everyone leaves with a sense of optimism by the fresh start offered by the New Year.
So with that in mind, we’ve put together and exciting list of everything you need to do to ensure you have the best New Year’s Eve ever in your luxury lodge here at Silver Bay – and also so that you can welcome 2016 with open, happy arms.
1. Dress up
Everyone loves donning their glad rags, and we’re no different here at Silver Bay. New Year’s Eve is a great chance to bring in 2016 looking and feeling your best, so invest in that extra special dress or suit and ensure you have a lovely night!
2. Have your own pre-party in your luxury lodge
Whether you’re planning on going to the annual Silver Bay New Year’s eve party, or perhaps have to stay back at the holiday lodge with very young children, a pre-party can be a great way to celebrate the New Year without having to stay up extra late.
Invest in party poppers, put out a few nibbles and get the music flowing. New Year’s Eve can be celebrated before midnight if you’d like – it’s up to you!
3. Attend Silver Bay’s New Year’s Eve Party
Every year we host our annual Silver Bay New Year’s Eve Party – and this year is no different! Come together with the other Silver Bay residents as we throw a party to remember once more.
The best thing about our event is that we ensure the kids are also entertained. This frees you up to relax too, and ensures everyone in your party has an exciting New Year’s Eve.
We certainly hope we’ll be seeing you there!
4. Come up with some party games
When you’re all gathered around the table with drinks and nibbles in hand, it can be a great idea to come up with your own party games.
Card games are something everyone can enjoy. Everything from Gin Rummy through to a simple game of snap are great games that will keep all the family entertained.
If you don’t have any cards, then a simple piece of paper and pen can help create a great game of Who Am I? All you need to do is get everyone person in your group to write down a name of a famous person, and then pass this name to the person next to them. You have to then stick it on your head and guess who you are by taking it in turns asking yes and no questions.
It’s hours of fun!
5. Pace yourself
If you are drinking then it’s also worth making sure you get plenty of water in your system too! The last thing you want is to miss the New Year countdown because you fell asleep before it happened! Take it slow and and pace yourself to ensure you have the best evening possible.
6. Get all the family together for the big countdown
One of the best parts of New Year’s Eve is, of course, the final countdown to the New Year’s Day. Having all the family round is a key part of this because of course everyone shares hugs and wishes everyone the best.
When the clock hits midnight, pop on Auld Lang Syne, hold hands and sing along together. It’s one of those extra special moments when you get to really show your loved ones how much you appreciate them, and the usually show it in return, so don’t miss out.
