1Pick A Letter, Any Letter

This is a unique idea for a party that we're totally loving. Picking one letter from the alphabet as your theme leaves everything up to your imagination, just as long as it starts with that letter. Your guests can get creative with their costumes, and you can have fun coming up with snack foods that start with that letter.

2Totally, Awesome '80s Theme

A decade theme is always a fun choice. Any decade will do, but we love the '80s. I mean, who doesn't? It was a great time for movies, music, and fashion. You can have an '80s themed New Year's with some Cyndi Lauper, side ponies, and Tab Cola. When the clock strikes midnight, it'll be time for you to go Back To The Future as you enter 2018.

3Baby, You're A Firework

I don't know about you, but the fireworks are my favorite part of New Year's Eve. I wouldn't want to spend my NYE without them. That's why this fireworks theme party is so great. You can't have enough sparkles, fizzy drinks, star decorations, and Katy Perry's "Firework" on repeat.

4Masquerade Party

A masquerade ball is a perfect opportunity to really glam it up. They are always classy AF, and it's fun to see everyone with a bit of mystery hidden behind their masks. Also, who knows? Maybe you'll find yourself a mysterious stranger to kiss at midnight.

5Old Hollywood Glam

Thinking of Marilyn, Bette, and Audrey; an old Hollywood party allows for your guests to come out in style. You can get a red carpet from Etsy that your guests can walk in on. They can be their very own paparazzi and snap away all the Insta pics they want. You can also serve tons of movie-themed snacks, like popcorn and candy.

6A Gatsby New Year's

There truly ain't no party like a Gatsby party. If your friends want a theme that allows them to dress to impress, a Gatsby style party is perfect. The champagne will be flowing, and the dance floor will be swinging.

7A Cozy PJ Party

On the other end of things, if your friends want to take it easy this New Year's, a PJ party is the way to go. You can all get cozy in your favorite pajamas, and have a party like an old school sleepover. You can serve your fave snacks like pizza, brownies, and s'mores. You can even decorate your apartment like a huge blanket fort that you all can hang out in as the ball drops.
