We've broken all the essentials down for you -- the party, menu, decorations, and duds -- for one unforgettable bash.
Plus: Get everything you need this New Year's from recipes to a rockin' playlist.
1. Country Karaoke
The Party:Belting out your favorite tunes always makes for a good time. Get a little friendly competition going by handing out awards for Best Duet, Most Passionate Ballad, Best Spot-On Impersonation, and so forth.
How to Decorate: Set the mood with a gingham tablecloth and use cotton napkins to line wicker baskets for serving chips or peanuts. Top it off with a lovely floral centerpiece arrangement.
What to Wear: Create a playful vibe by having guests dress up as their favorite Country singer. Or go casual in vintage cowboy boots and a cute prairie dress.
2. Poker Night
The Party:Gamble the night away without forfeiting tons of your hard-earned cash. Have guests trade $20 for poker chips (Dirtcheappoker.com) so no one is tempted to bet the farm.
How to Decorate: Create a faux poker table by laying down green felt onto any flat surface.
What to Wear: A cowboy hat with dark shades - you don't want your eyes to give anything away. Up the ante and opt for a old-saloon vibe with fishnet tights, feather boa, and a hand-held fan.
What to Serve: Players need something to snack on at the table. Lucky for you, we've already flushed out the best appetizers to serve.
The Party:The Roaring 20's was a glamorous decade that's fun to re-live, especially when you revive Prohibition for the night , turn up the jazz and dance to the Charleston!
How to Decorate: Now's the time to show off your art deco pieces and incorporate feather accessories. They'll help you transform your place into an old-fashioned Speakeasy.
What to Serve: Hooch of course. Just make sure to keep your gin and champagne hidden from the fuzz in teacups or concealed in brown paper bags. Guests can snack on traditional bar food like popcorn, mini sandwiches, and spiced nuts.
What to Wear: You don't have don a flapper dress. A little red lipstick and a string of pearls are fashion staples of the 1920s.
