Theme Ideas for your New Years Eve Party
It’s that time of the year again, where we all look forward to welcoming in the New Year in style! Here at Scarlett Entertainment, we believe that it’s a brilliant excuse to gather all of your favourite people and plan a themed party. Themes are a great idea as they help you to plan your party and give guests the perfect excuse to dress up, as well as setting the overall mood for your event. We have put together a list of our favourite theme ideas and entertainment options…it’s just a shame that New Year's Eve is only once a year!
A party fit for a king…
What better way to see the New Year in than with a Royal party! Perfect for New Year celebrations you could consider hosting a Royal Ball, giving your guests a fantastic chance to get dressed up in their gladrags! Whatever you decide, the décor should be full of class with traditional British bunting, rich regal colours and elegant candles to set a sophisticated ambience. Inviting guests into your regal palace, Vintage Tea Party Hostesses are the perfect meet and greet entertainment, offering guests a delicious range of canapés upon arrival. Dressed in candy coloured costumes, large wigs and bunting, they are an utterly unique and a simply splendid addition to any event! Make things simple by serving the Royal Feast afternoon tea style, providing platters of cucumber and salmon finger sandwiches and sponge cakes for guests to nibble on.
Of course, no royal party would be complete without special appearances from the Royal family! Dubbed as one of the UK’s leading Prince William Impersonators this lookalike’s uncanny resemblance will leave your guests questioning whether he really is royalty. By his side, the UK’s official Kate lookalike, has the look, style and the impeccable manners of the Duchess of Cambridge. Having featured in international magazines including Marie Claire, Grazia and Metro, she will be sure to work up a frenzy at your event!
Providing the ultimate climax to any royal themed party, our Queen Elizabeth II Lookalike is the perfect likeness of her majesty. British born and the same height as the Queen, she is one of the most impressive lookalikes you will see, providing many fantastic memories and photo opportunities at your party.
Start the New Year with a fanciful masquerade party, allowing your guests the chance to glam up for a night of magical masquerade fun. Historically these parties have been a popular choice in Europe since the Renaissance period and bring the mystery and the beauty of Venetian masks to life. You can decorate your venue with elegant party decorations that feature metallic gold and black and magical colours like purple and lime green. Don’t forget to provide a bowl of punch for guests to help themselves too and finger food so they can eat with their mask on!
Adding an element of fun, the novelty Masquerade Moving Mask is a brilliant addition to any masquerade party. A beautiful giant prop to set the mood, this mask goes out of its way to shock guests, interrupt picture taking and loves a good “selfie” although you may need a wide lens for this giant face! Fantastic interactive entertainment, this giant masquerade mask has also been known to throw some serious shapes on the dance floor!
Such an elegant theme needs some elegant entertainment and the professional musicians from Classical Strings provide just that! The talented quartet is experienced in providing background music at a range of events, including a party for Vivienne Westwood and a drinks reception at the Houses of Parliament! Guaranteed to provide a touch of class, they provide a tailor-made service to ensure your event is simply perfect.
A Blast From The Past!
How about ushering in the New Year with a blast from the past with a 1950s themed party! The 1950s were after all a time of great change and growth after the dark days of WWII and a time when Rock 'n' Roll set the world of music alight. Invite guests to celebrate all that is retro by dressing in popular vintage fashions such as tight jeans, circle skirts, leather jackets and pedal pushers. Set the atmosphere by decorating the venue like a ‘50s diner by serving hamburgers, fries and milkshakes (or perhaps something a little stronger!) and hire vintage inspired acts to keep guests entertained all night long.
Meeting and greeting guest, these stunning 1950s style Bathing beauties will help to keep the retro theme alive as they wander around your party serving a delicious range of both hot or cold canapés as well as sweets, treats and cupcakes. Our 1950s style Rock 'n' Roll Tribute band will have all of your guests jiving like its 1955 with their infectious energy, bona fide costumes, hairstyles and instruments. Led by a charismatic crooner who's renowned for his velvety voice, the band will play ‘50s favourites, bringing the new year in, in serious 1950s style.
When the band aren’t playing, our 1950s Dance Act will bring an abundance of character, comedy and retro style to the evening! Dancing their way into the New Year, this trio promise to bring back the fun tongue-in-cheek style of the 50’s, keeping you and your guests entertained well into the New Year!
