Still scrambling to plan the perfect New Years Eve bash? Take it easy says Andy Cohen, who suggests a relaxed approach to party planning.
"I think the biggest mistake is to go too big," the WWHL host tells People. "The best recipe for New Year’s Eve, for me, is a few bottles of bubbly and great friends. The rest just happens.”
When it comes to the guest list, Andy suggests inviting "some wild cards" to your shindig to "shake things up a bit.” Sounds like a typical night in the clubhouse!
The best recipe for New Year’s Eve, for me, is a few bottles of bubbly and great friends.
With the right people in the room, everything else falls into place. No need to spend a ton of money on food, just make sure there's plenty to drink. “You can have a delicious New Year’s party by picking fantastic bottles of champagne and then ordering in pizza," Andy says. "Champagne is a great partner for pizza, and let’s face it, when the evening has come and gone, people will remember the fabulous bubbly much more than the food anyway."
Andy also reminds us from the importance of a good toast—share a few meaningful words with your loved ones. He told the mag about his recent Christmas toast, "I led things off by pouring my heart out about my friends. I always get emo at toast time.”
