New Year’s is a couple of months away, so it’s probably the time to start dishing out your New Year’s resolutions and getting your party pants out. However, if you’re sick of the same old shindig that you go to every year, why not reign in the new one with something a little different? Here are some alternative ways you can send off 2017 and say hello to 2018.
Host A Dinner Party
Rather than host a party party, why not host a dinner party? A proper dinner party that adults enjoy. You can order food, have some cheese and wine, and take things outside when the clock strikes twelve. Enjoy your friend’s company while you’re outside under a gazebo from MyDeal, having a glass of bubbly and just being chill. Make sure you get some comfortable outdoor furniture and Aeroguard; no one likes a sore bum and mosquito bites.
Go To The Orchestra
If you want to make like a tub of yoghurt on New Year’s, why not go see the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra? For two shows only, the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra will present their much-loved annual 'New Year’s Eve Concert' at Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne on 31st December. Now in its 36th year, the celebrated 65-piece orchestra will perform songs from popular musicals both past and present, to herald in the new year.
Go Off The Grid For The Night
A great way to experience the wonder of the new year is by going off the grid for the night. Grab a picnic basket, fill it up with some drinks and delicious food, and head to the great outdoors. You can sit on your comfortable outdoor furniture, and watch the stars as the year shifts from old to new. Much like the dinner party, you can spend your time with those who are closest to you, and enjoy their company, instead of the hype around a crowded party.
Take A Cruise
Go way off the grid by taking a cruise this New Years! Carnival Cruise Lines explains further. “Have you ever thought about cruising into the New Year?! Carnival Cruise Line will sail you straight into the new year with an extra-festive cruise!

As long as you spend the new year with those that you care about and love, who cares what you do? You can ring in the new year by sleeping, dancing or just having a chat with your friends. It’s a new year, full of new opportunity and possibilities. And champagne; don’t forget the champagne!
