​Party Planning List:

Let’s consider all the essentials to make this party a bash:


1.  Themes & Decorations

Themes would be either formal or informal, depending on where and with whom you are going to be spending your goodbyes to 2015 and hello’s to 2016 with.

A formal party evokes the picture of lots of glitz and sparkle – black, gold and silver.  If you want to add a color, opt for a soft hue.

With an informal setting, anything goes!

  • Disco lights/balls.
