Take control of the situation: Host an activity or theme party. Let guests know the event is alcohol and drug free. By having a theme or activity party, drinking and/or drugs will not be the event’s focus. Guests will then be able to focus on fun, interaction and having a good time.
- Throw an annual NYE dance party: On the invitation make every guest a guest DJ by asking them to bring specific music to the party. Example: Top 10 songs you listened to in high school; another guest could be assigned favorite Motown jams; another guest could be asked to make a shuffle of 10 one hit wonders; you get the idea!
- Board game tournaments: Assign guests as opponents and on teams so that players have the opportunity to mix with new people; play old school board games tournament style; offer trophies and prizes. Intense competition, unbound enthusiasm and new friendships will abound!
- Movie Marathon: Pick movies that are inspirational, motivational and funny! Positive and uplifting movies to set the tone for the new year. Also, make amazing popcorn and use tons of butter!
