New years eve party idea for adults
It’s an evening to look forward to in many ways. But depending on how you spend your Christmas, the end of the festive period can be a time of depleted bank balances, social energy and fitness. Our overindulging over Christmas is fun at the time but the repercussions can suddenly hit come January! It’s surprising then that come 31st December many of us would be quite content staying in with a takeaway on the sofa. But then that would be boring right?
Deciding who to spend New Year’s Eve with is your first port of call in choosing how to celebrate. Once that’s sorted – along with the cost – other main factors to consider are location, atmosphere and views.
If you’d like a social atmosphere, or there are lots of people that you’d like to spend the evening with, an event like public fireworks may be preferred. Plus, with this option, you might have the added ambience of a live band, music with the display and food and drink stalls. What matters in terms of location is whether or not you’re willing to travel and how you can do so.
But with the atmospheric perks of big public events comes busy crowds and steep prices. If you’re suffering from a bit of NYE fatigue, we don’t blame you. Here’s a nice idea of something new you can do this year.
Different New Year’s Eve ideas
So you don’t want to bypass celebrating completely but you’re not overly enthused by the ways in which you’ve celebrated previously. The good news is there is an affordable and novel way to see in the new year. And the great thing is that it can be as stylish, extravagant or understated as you like.
Why not watch the night’s celebrations unfurl from aboard a yacht? Or simply spend the day exploring the local waters in a RIB or riverboat?
Think about it, with this option you choose who your shipmates are (and you can only socialise with those aboard your charter), you can’t get stuck behind someone tall obscuring your view of the fireworks, the reflections or the fireworks and festive lights look stunning on the water. Plus, your options are fairly open in terms of location and number of party guests. You can form your choice of charter based on who you choose to take with you and where you want to be.
We know what you’re thinking, you don’t own a boat or know how to control one. And isn’t hiring a boat for a party or an overnight stay really expensive? Not always….
NYE with Borrow a Boat
Many of Borrow a Boat’s 17,000+ boats can be rented from their loving owners for both day and night stays. Just like Airbnb, so long as the boat owner is happy for you to borrow their vessel for the chosen date, you can go ahead and book for a New Year’s Eve party to remember.
You want to start the year as you mean to go on after all. So if you’ve never spent a day or evening on a boat, New Year’s Eve celebrations are a brilliant excuse to give it a go. What’s more, you can book one of our professional skippers to take care of all the navigating and technical elements of your rented boat.
Great idea for a sober New Year’s Eve party
One last thing to mention is that celebrating on board when you’re bringing in the new year is a great sober party idea. If you’re at the helm alcohol is a definite no-no and drinking on board might not agree with everyone. That said, it doesn’t have to be a teetotal event. If you have a professional skipper handling the boat, you don’t need to be completely sober. Enter 2019 with people you love in a place you love but in a completely new venue. You won’t feel bad turning down any of your other options because this alternative is pretty cool.
Borrow a Boat owners have boats in over 60 countries around the world. If there are new year traditions that you’d like to witness from the water either happening locally or far away. You can book a new years adventure with us today.
