Top 3 tips to throw a New Year's time capsule party

Date Created: 12/19/2011

Top 3 tips to throw a New Year's time capsule party. New Year's is a time to look back on the year that was and party the night away before the clock strikes midnight. If you've been looking for an ingenious way to celebrate the holiday, creating a time capsule may be a wonderful activity to get the night started off on the right foot. Best of all, this will create a yearly tradition where you will look back and see how much has changed over the course of a year. However, you'll need items to put into your time capsule and that's where your friends and family come in. Keep the following tips in mind to jazz up the look of your space and encourage your guests to be creative with their time capsule choices.

1. Time capsule supplies. When choosing items to put in your time capsule, ask your friends to bring things that remind them of the previous year. Whether it's a funny newspaper title, sports memorabilia, popular consumer products or a few photos, there are more than enough interesting objects that will tell the story of 2011. In a year's time, your time capsule will provide a stunning look back and it will be a wonderful way to kick off your New Year's party next year.

2. Party decorations. While much of your energy will be centered around throwing together your time capsule, your gathering should be filled with traditional New Year's 2012 party supplies to infuse the space with a pop of color. Mylar balloons, personalized banners and party centerpieces are quick and easy additions that can help to fill in the gaps throughout your venue. You can even use streamers and curling ribbon to jazz up the look of your serving table and communal areas.

3. Have the event catered. Instead of breaking your back by whipping up a full-scale meal, have the event catered. A large sub sandwich with a selection of drinks will allow your guests to munch on their favorites and enjoy a late-night snack as well. Be sure to have party tableware, imprinted napkins and catering supplies on-hand to make cleanup much easier at the end of the night.

You can make your New Year's 2012 party stand out with your ingenious time capsule idea, and it could start a yearly tradition your friends will love.
