Tips on Planning your New Years Eve Event

Whether you’re envisioning an intimate gathering or a trendy cocktail party, the end of the year is the perfect occasion to host a memorable event. At Event Hire Sydney, we’re here to assist you in planning the New Year’s celebration of your dreams.

Tips for Planning NYE Party

Hosting a Cocktail Party

Choosing to host a casual cocktail party is a fantastic way to ring in the New Year. It provides your guests with the perfect opportunity to mingle in a relaxed atmosphere and sets the stage for an unforgettable night. Depending on your guest list, you can either opt to host the cocktail party in the comfort of your own home or secure a private venue.

To ensure your guests’ comfort, consider incorporating a mix of high and low seating options. This can include a combination of high bars and stools, complemented by our comfortable sofas and lounges like our 2 seater rattan lounges, coffee tables, and scattered ottomans, providing ample seating for your guests. Our goal is to ensure that at least 50% of your guests have seats available at any given time.

Hosting an Intimate Dinner Party 

For those looking to host a more intimate New Year’s Eve celebration, consider organising a dinner party at home. Elevate the ambiance of the evening by hiring stylish dining chairs and a spacious dining table, such as our gold wire chairs with padded seated cushions and our Gold Hairpin Banquet Table with natural timber table top. Decorate your table to your style and with place mats, cutlery, decorative glassware, and linen

Add a Touch of Luxury and Ambiance

New Year’s Eve calls for a touch of luxury and creating the right ambiance is key. Infuse your event theme with opulence by incorporating gold, silver, and metallic accents, and indulgent materials such as velvet, wire, and marble details. At Event Hire Sydney, our hire furniture collections include wire sofa lounges with luxurious navy blue velvet cushions, brass cocktail tables with marble tops, and gold wire stools or chairs that will enhance the overall opulent feel of your event.

To elevate the atmosphere even further, consider incorporating glow furniture that emits a soft, inviting light, creating a captivating ambiance for your guests. You can place glow-in-the-dark tables, chairs, and other furnishings to add an enchanting glow to your New Year’s Eve celebration.


Illuminate Your Celebration with Party Lights

To transform your NYE event into a truly mesmerising experience, don’t forget to include an array of party lights. Consider draping string festoon lights across your venue or outdoor space to set the mood and make your celebration feel truly enchanting.

If you are considering a dance floor and music at your New Years Eve event, why not incorporate party lights such as our intelligent lights, lasers and strobe lights.

Turn up the Atmosphere with Quality Speakers

Music is a vital element of any great celebration, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. Ensure you have high-quality speakers and sound equipment to keep the party going all night long. Create playlists that cater to your guests’ tastes, from smooth background music during dinner to energetic tunes for the countdown to midnight.

With the right speakers, you can make your celebration a memorable one, and your guests won’t be able to resist the urge to dance the night away.

Don’t Forget the Food and Drinks

Food and drinks play a pivotal role in the success of your New Year’s Eve celebration. Consider serving a signature cocktail with our slushie machines to kick off the evening. Additionally, set up a stunning grazing table that features a variety of delectable treats. If you’re looking for a unique twist, you can even invite a food truck to serve your guests with an exciting array of dishes.

Since your NYE party is likely to last well past midnight, it’s essential to provide “late-night” food options to keep your guests satisfied and content throughout the night.

Whether you choose to host your NYE party at home or in a private venue, Event Hire Sydney is here to assist you in creating a truly exceptional occasion. From dining tables and chairs to cocktail furniture, glow furniture, party lights, speakers, and more, we have all the furnishings and equipment you need to create a memorable New Year’s Eve event.
