I don't know about you but I am not a big fan of the crowds on New Year's Eve and if you have a glass or two of champagne to celebrate with friends then the sensible thing to do is not drive. So, you have to also face the crowds trying to get onto public transport or compete to get that rare vacant taxi!
So, why not make it nice and easy on yourself and celebrate New Year's Eve at a dinner party at home with friends?
Have a look at any of the themes listed under the category column - my suggestion is to have a late(ish) dinner party and get friends to bring a plate for a buffet dinner.
Or, if there's only a few of you, maybe your friends could bring a course each? Or, maybe this is the night to try out a formal dinner party where you all dress up?
Have a fantastic night and here's hoping 2008 is a wonderful year for you and your loved ones.
