Want to host a New Year’s Eve party at your house this year, but aren’t sure how to pull it off? The solution is right under your feet: your basement! Whether finished or unfinished, your basement is a goldmine of party possibilities if utilized properly and we’ve got 5 easy tips to help you plan basement party ideas so your guests have the best New Year’s Eve ever.

5 Basement Party Ideas to Help You Plan NYE

Turning your basement into a party space for New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to be a time-consuming or expensive venture. Just a few simple decorating investments will make any basement space a festive and happy party palace!

#1 Brighten up the Walls

If your basement is unfinished, you may have concerns about how to make the walls look bright and festive. Turning gray or white concrete walls into an eye-popping backdrop for your party space isn’t difficult. Hanging colorful posters, tacking up shimmering fabrics, or even painting if you have the time are all simple and relatively inexpensive ways to spruce up your basement walls. Many party supply stores also sell temporary murals in holiday themes, which are easy to hang and add a festive touch to any wall.

#2 Music, Music, Music!

What’s a party without the music! One of the easiest ways to make your basement the perfect space for a celebration is by creating both a space to play music and a space to dance to it.  Set up a stereo system in an easy to access corner and clear a space in the center of the room for a dance floor. You can even place temporary music related no-slip decals on the floor to add an extra special touch to the dancing space.

#3 String Lights

Christmas may be over, but don’t pack up those lights just yet. Hang multiple strings of Christmas lights around your basement to add an illuminating touch. Multi-colored lights give a lighthearted celebratory feel while white twinkling lights add a touch of class and sophistication.

#4 Hang Streamers

Streamers and other hanging decorations such as beads also add fun to your basement party space. Twist together multiple strands of colored streamers and hang them on walls, ceilings, and light fixtures, or invest in several strings of shiny beads and hang them from the ceiling.

#5 Don’t Forget the Balloons

Nothing turns an ordinary space into a party palace like balloons. Filling your party space with as many helium balloons as will fit will instantly turn the area into a party. As with the lights, colored balloons add a fun and festive flair, while silver, gold, and white balloons bring elegance to your party space.

No matter how you choose to decorate your basement party palace, have fun with it! New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration with friends and family, and your guests will love having a joyful space to ring in the New Year with you.
