One of the best parts about New Year’s Eve is watching all the fireworks go off in celebration. So grad all of your friends and gather outside to watch the sky light up with beautiful, sparkly colors. If you happen to live in an apartment or somewhere with a rooftop, then that gives you the perfect opportunity to throw a get-together and watch the magnificent fireworks.

Throw A Potluck

A potluck is ideal if you’re not sure what to plan for a party. Have everyone bring their favorite foods to share. It allows everyone to feel apart of the celebration and leaves you to do less of the work! Everyone will be happy eating all their favorite foods while spending time with their favorite friends.

Have A Sleepover
