- Music is huge. End of the year top ten lists are all over the music blog world and a great source for hidden gems. Be creative and use DJ fundamentals. I like to start off low key and crescendo around 11:45-1:30.
- Typically the more the merrier. I like to give a personal email or phone call to several fringe guests I would especially like to come.
- Have plenty of paper towels handy.
- It's always nice to have some fun games or decorations that are original and creative. Surprise and delight people.
- Good liquor, champagne and high gravity Belgian beers are well worth the money.
- Complicated mixed drinks tend to take a bit too much time to serve and are not worth it.
- Midnight can sneak up on you if the party is bumping. Make sure you turn on the TV or something to get a countdown going. A cellphone reminder a few minutes beforehand can help avoid sleeping the countdown (it can take longer than you think to hand out champagne and something to make noise with to most people).
