Popular Themes for 2022 New Year’s Eve Parties
Party of the Decades
A decade party takes on the aesthetics, stylings, and feel of the decade you’re ringing in and is ideal for ringing in a new decade (obviously). Everyone went crazy for the Roaring 20s and Flapper NYE Parties centered on the 1920s, much like they did for 2020. Perhaps we shouldn’t have done so. Take a look at what transpired after that. There has been a “great” depression.
If you wanted to, you could use other topics from the 1920s, such as prohibition, speakeasies, the emergence of the mafia, and the contemporary media. To add to the fun, you could all dress up as gangsters, moonshiners, and reporters. Lindberg went across the Atlantic during a time when Harlem was exploding with jazz, so you have a lot of options.
However, other decades aren’t all that horrible either, and you don’t have to tie the theme to the year you’re entering. There’s a cuteness to linking them, but if you’re feeling groovy, a 70s party is pretty much always a good choice. Or, for that matter, a 90s party; I’m sure half of us wish we were still there!
Pajama Party for New Year’s Eve
Trying to maintain a low-key and modest demeanor? A simple way to ring in the New Year is to throw a pajama party that turns into an overnight with friends. Make popcorn, watch a movie, throw a dance party, and ring in the new year with hot chocolate, pillow fights, and refreshments.
To commemorate the evening, take polaroids and send everyone home with images they may treasure forever.
Terrace Party on the Rooftop
A rooftop patio party, on the other hand, can be really posh. This is an instant winner if you’re trying for an elegant ambiance, and it’s a terrific option if you live in an apartment that allows you to access the rooftop space. You may have to rent it out, but find out and budget accordingly.
Set up some globe lights, hire a DJ, and mix up some signature drinks. Just make sure you eat something beforehand so no one drinks on an empty stomach and falls through the roof.
You’re almost done after you’ve got the music, the ambiance, and enough chairs to sit in. Your hometown’s lights will provide plenty of atmospheres, so all you’ll need are some noisemakers, sparklers, and a way to keep track of the countdown.
Best 2022 New Year’s Party Themes
If you can afford it, you can hire someone to plan your yacht party for you if you really want to go all out. However, if you’re just looking for inspiration, there are lots of ways to create the greatest yacht party ever… yacht? (Is that also a verb?) Yachting is popular…)
With a DJ, an open bar, and some fantastic catering, you can turn your boat into a floating nightclub. Again, this isn’t a cheap party, but it’ll be one you’ll never forget, and if you split the costs with others, it won’t be too bad. Some of the larger yachts even feature hot tubs, so tell your guests to bring their swimwear.
For the actual ball drop, you should consider fireworks or some other form of ‘event.’ It can be a light show or something else entirely. Your party planner may come up with something, but pyrotechnics are a surefire way to keep your guests talking about your event for years.
Party in the Cosmos
This one is a little unusual (with a quirky way to ring in the new year! ), but then, so is outer space.
A New Year’s Eve party with a space theme can be fantastic. It’s creative and totally out of the box (it’s outside the environment! hahaha). I’m sure this theme has been done before, so I won’t claim to be the first, but how many people do you know that have? It’s definitely a unique way to ring in the New Year.
Tell your guests to get dressed in their most opulent attire. At the Moonbase, you’ll all be celebrities, partying like it’s 2099. Consider a ‘premiere party’ with a Star Trek twist. And make your home/apartment look like it’s floating through space, complete with stars and constellations. Make your party as glistening as the ball!
New Year’s Eve Party Ideas For A Unforgettable Soirée
Rent a beach house and have your party there (ideally on a private beach or with a private beachfront). With so many possibilities now available on Airbnb, you should be able to pick something enjoyable and reasonably priced. You can have this celebration during the day or at night; if you want to swim, the daytime is definitely safer. The benefit of renting at night is that you have somewhere for folks to crash so they don’t have to drive.
This is a very simple theme because you can hold a beachside dance party and serve fruity tropical beverages; the entire “we’re on a beach” vibe is right in front of you. So go for it and have a good time!
New Years Eve Mascarade Party
This is one of those timeless concepts that everyone has heard about and seen in films, but few (if any) people get to experience in person. Plan your New Year’s Eve party around a masquerade and be the host who alters that. So get your masquerade masks, champagne, elegant hors d’oeuvres, and your most opulent attire ready. You may put up a picture booth to capture all of your fine friends’ tipsy recollections.
Whether you’re dining with pals over a glass of wine or holding a party on a yacht, your friends and family will have a great time ringing in the New Year with people they care about. So, don’t sweat the minor stuff; if one of these New Year’s Eve Party Ideas strikes you, feel free to borrow it, and remember that the most important thing is to have a good time. Keep that in mind, and you’ll be well on your way to throwing a fantastic party.
New Year’s greetings!
