What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? No matter what they are, you need to be sure that you and your loved ones can stay safe. That’s why it’s important to heed these safety tips so that you can start the brand new year with a fresh start and no regrets.
Hosting a small and quiet party at home is just as understandable as a loud and raucous one.
Play Games: Part of the fun of a party at home is being able to set up your games. Whether you want to play card games, board games, or video games, the options are almost limitless. Plus, there are some classic parlor games that you can partake in, all without needing any alcohol.
Serve Food: No celebration is complete without food. Plan out your menu weeks in advance, so that you can account for the dietary needs and allergy considerations of your guests. A party isn’t as fun when there’s nothing you can safely eat. Plus, having all this food can help counteract the effects of alcohol.
Shrink the Guest List: You’ll also need to be careful about who you invite into your home. While you would trust your family and friends, you might not be able to trust their acquaintances whom they would like to invite to your party. One of the most important safety tips to remember is that it’s best to keep your guest list small.
Have a Driver: Even if you are meeting up with friends somewhere else, it’s not hard to find a driver for the night. The rise of ridesharing services has made this safety tip easier than ever.
Stay with Friends: No matter where you go, don’t get separated from your friends. After all, there is safety in numbers.
Charge Your Phone: You never know when you will need it next, so make sure your phone is charged. If necessary, bring a portable charger with you. And whatever you do, don’t leave it behind at home.
Eat Well: This can be more difficult than anything else. Even if you don’t feel like having a massive meal before you go out, you should eat something healthy and nutritious. It will give you more energy to have a good time, and again, can help you absorb alcohol more slowly so that it won’t ruin your night.
