It’s safe to say it. 2015 is so last year. The ball is dropping with or without you, so if you’re still looking for a way to ring in 2016, here’s an idea: HOST YOUR OWN New Year’s Eve Party! Don’t worry … it will be easy.

Let’s Get it Started
Set a late start time and let your guests know when to show up. Eight or nine p.m. should give you enough time to get fired up before the ball drops. Alternative: Make a day out of it. The College Football Playoff brings two games to December 31 (4 p.m. and 8 p.m.). Have your friends over to watch.

Party People
A party isn’t a party without your friends. Determine who makes the cut, and send them an invite. Facebook provides the perfect platform for describing your event, providing directions, creating a guest list, and viewing RSVPs. And it’s free! Alternative: Get fancy and mail out paper invites. Check Pinterest for some creative invitation ideas.
