Here are some of her ideas for a New Years Eve celebration on a budget:
-Potluck instead of shouldering the food cost alone. To make it more festive have a theme such as Thanksgiving, Classic American, Food from Literature, or ask people to bring a traditional dish from their culture.
-Have someone act as a DJ (this is usually not hard, often several people want this job) and clear a dance floor.
-Papel Picado banners make great decorations. All you need are tissue paper, scissors, string and glue. Place tissue paper so that the long side is on top. Make a fold along this top side about an inch deep and make a crease.
Turn the paper over so that this fold is facing down on the table. Bring the left hand side edge over to the right hand side edge, folding the width of the paper in half, and make creases down the middle. Repeat this fold two
more times, and then cut notches in the folded edge. Repeat on additional pieces of paper and place the string inside the folds, connecting the sheets. Hang them inside or out.
-Play games such as Musical Statues, which is like musical chairs except instead of rushing for seats when the music stops you must freeze. Last one to freeze is out of the game.
-Bobbing for apples is always good for some laughs.
-You could also ask your guests to bring something they no longer want, such as clothing that doesn’t fit or a gift that they could not use, and everybody could swap for an item that suites them better.
