The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel

Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)! 

Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to”  party activity mostly  because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.

Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.Party Fun: Lip Sync Duel, karaoke, party fun, activities, games

What you need:

  1. Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
  2. A diverse playlist
  3. A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!

Party Hearty!

New Year’s Party Printable Games

As the New Year approaches, all of us here at Party Idea {Pros} are beginning to make plans.  Although I usually host a large New Year's Eve Party, this year my house is in such disarray we have reluctantly acquiesced to join a group of friends at a local restaurant.  At least we won't have to drive very far.

With an eight o'clock dinner reservation, I remain concerned about how we are possibly going to fill four hours.  Yes, everyone in our party are close friends who definitely know how to Party Pretty, and  many of whom are even mildly amusing, but 4 hours seated at a table …

So I am seriously considering bringing with me a stack of printable games.  If nothing else, they will certainly produce loud roars of laughter when I whip them out during a lull in the conversation!  The fact is, I think the games will not only be fun in and of themselves, I think they will serve to jump start some lively conversations.

50% off Pack of 450 Printable Games

Printable GamesFor one day only, September 18, 2012, Funsational is offering 50% off its MVP Printable Games Party Collection including new Halloween games.

So sorry – not only has this deal expired, Funsational has closed its doors. But not to worry – Print Games Now has taken up the slack! You can also find lots of fun printable games on Etsy.

Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.

If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.”  Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games.  The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games.  Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush.  So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.

Have Fun and Party Hearty!
