New Year party checklist

We have another printable for all the organised moms out there, a fabulous New Year party checklist to help make sure that any gatherings you have in the New Year go well. Please make sure though, that you are sticking to the local lockdown rules where you are. We are a global site, so are catering for all kinds of New Years. This list should help with other celebrations too, of course, particularly anything that involves fireworks!

What is included within the New Year Party Checklist

We have a few different ideas for you on the checklist, depending on what you are going to do to entertain your family / guests. We have split into a number of different options for you:


  • Make a guest list, and
  • Create a facebook event or send an electronic invitation, or
  • Send out paper invites. If its online, set up a Zoom / online meeting.


  • Confetti,
  • Glitter,
  • Streamers,
  • Balloons,
  • Table cloth, and
  • String lights.

Food and drinks

  • Champagne (obviously!),
  • Ice
  • Sparking cider,
  • Crunchy snacks, and appetizers,
  • Champagne flutes,
  • Late night snacks (e.g. Frozen pizza, and popcorn),
  • Cups, plates, napkins and cutlery, and
  • Water, juice, and fizzy drinks.

Party favours

  • Sparklers,
  • Noisemakers,
  • Confetti poppers,
  • Party sunglasses (why not?!?!), and
  • Hats and crowns for the year that you are celebrating.


  • TV for watching the country celebrations,
  • Photo booth backdrop (maybe with an App!), props,
  • Music – playlist, DJ if you are very lucky, and a band if you are even luckier!
  • New Year games.

We hope you agree that we have most things covered for a fabulous family get together, just in your household or beyond, depending on what you can and can’t do this year.
