It's almost 2019! I cannot believe it. Seriously. I'm not having a big party or anything but I'm still excited. So I decided to ask some of my friends what they think would make for a good NYE Party (or even a NYD Party because it's never too late for a party in January). Right? I'll share their answers below. My mom also said she will link their Instagram names to their responses also. I wish you a Happy New Year! Oh! Love you all! Happy New Year again. :) Oh yes - one more thing ... I used photos from the summer for this post because the photos are from one of the best parties I have ever gone to! So why not use them here?!!! Okay, bye! - Bean #bye2018 #hi2019

14. "Prep early so the host isn't working the whole time. A relaxed host makes the most fun parties. A great playlist [too]! Be sure to include some older songs - hits from even just a few years ago will make people say, 'OMG; I used to love this song!'." - @deenaknightdesigns
