Hosting your very own group party over New Year doesn’t need to be an expensive occasion. In fact we’ve thought of 3 reasons why it will save you money… plus you get to choose everything down to the venue, decorations and food!

Dining Room

Get everyone to chip in to the cost of the rent and food

Much more cost effective than trying to a book a restaurant for your New Year meal or ordering in masses of takeaway food for a large group. As the host you’re in control of setting the budget and deciding what feast to cook.  Do you fancy a relaxed buffet of party food, canapés or maybe even a sit down three course meal Downtown style? Ask each couple to bring along one dish and you’re sorted.

Party Food

Built in babysitting!

No panic over finding someone suitable (or sensible) to babysit the kids on the one night of the year most babysitters like to party.  Savings on babysitting can be put towards the cost of renting the house, and when the younger ones eyelids start to droop then it’s straight upstairs to bed so Mum & Dad can party on til midnight.


No pulling the short straws over who will drive home.

All staying under the one roof will make for a more relaxed evening.  No worrying about trying to book (and pay for) a taxi.  It’ll keep everyone safe from making foolish and potentially life changing mistakes driving home after the party.

Happy New Year everyone and let the party planning begin…
