It’s that time of the year when you probably have party invites lined up for New Year’s Eve. There’ll be friends, acquaintances, people you’ll never see again and people you hope to see a whole lot more of. And the only way to do that is to stand out from the crowd, and make sure you and Yaars make a unique and memorable impression. But keeping up the enthusiasm, night after night, can be hard work. So take that sip of McDowell's No.1 and read on.
Now you obviously don’t need to be bouncing off the walls to be unforgettable. Here’s a few tips on how to be the life of the party this New Year season.
The first step to getting people to notice you is to dress edgy. We’re not suggesting you wear a cape and carry a cane, but a little flair will make sure you catch peoples’ attention.
Now that that’s taken care of, you’re going to want to bring something to the party. Don’t show up empty-handed. A few pints, a bottle of Scotch, something you can share with the new friends you’re definitely going to be making.
In a crowded setting, it pays to take up prime position. Don’t hug the walls, or settle down on a couch in the corner. Grab a few friends and find a spot close to the center of the action. Simply adjusting where you stand could transform you from a wallflower to the one everyone wants to chat with.
Now that you’re settled in and you’ve found a good spot, start a conversation. Talk to people, tell a joke or two, as long as they aren’t offensive, or cheesy. Most importantly, ask questions. And listen. People appreciate it and they’re more likely to remember you.
Another surefire way to get noticed is to be the one to cut loose. Be the one to start a sing-along, start a conga line, a limbo challenge, anything that will get people to get up and participate. Just don’t be the one to start a fight.
By far the easiest way to be the life of the party is to lend a hand to the host. Refilling drinks, restocking the beer cooler, doing a food run. Not only will your friend be grateful, you’ll have the opportunity to talk to almost everyone t the party.
Now that you’ve built up your reputation as the life of the party, at the end of the night, the other guests are probably going to turn to you for after-party plans. Do not let them down.
Stand out from the crowd, in a cool way of course. Follow these simple steps and make the most of the party season this year. If all goes well, you might have a few great new additions to your crew right in time for the New Year’s Eve blowout!
