Station 1: A 'Welcome and Wish' wall
A "Welcome and Wish" wall is a great way to make guests comfortable the second they enter your home. Have them write their wishes for the new year on Post-Its, then stick those wishes to a festive background. Make sure to use it as the backdrop for pictures, including silly ones with themed party favors and accessories to get everyone in the celebratory mood.
Station 2: Snacks
Charcuterie boards were on everyone's mind this year, so continue to trend with your own personalized version! Consider adding your friends' favorite snacks, or take inspiration from New Years Rockin' Eve and try a regional delight: cheesecake bites from New York City, plantain chips from Puerto Rico or popcorn from Los Angeles.
Station 3: Midnight celebration
The party really gets going once the clock strikes midnight, so prepare in advance for a big celebration. Fill toilet paper or paper towel tubes with tissue paper and Hershey's Kisses, then wrap in more tissue paper to create a fun party popper that ensures everyone gets a kiss. And don't forget the beverages -- champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling juice work perfectly.
Station 4: Feel-good favors
Prepare your guests for New Year's Day with a handy "hangover kit" that will help them feel refreshed and hydrated as they start 2024.
