A Champagne Toast to Remember this New Year's Eve
Are you planning a New Year’s Eve party this year? It is a popular tradition to ring in the new year with a champagne toast. Friends gather, snack, and share stories of hopes and plans for this next year. At midnight, the countdown ensues, and the bubbly fills the sparkling champagne flutes. How will you make this year’s a toast to remember?
Tips for a Memorable Toast
The party is in full swing and guests have had a wonderful night. It is now time to toast the new year. How do you make this one memorable? Give your toast about 30 minutes before the countdown so you are not interrupted by the craziness that comes with midnight. Make sure everyone has a drink in hand. Shortly before it is time to toast, fill the flutes with bubbly and pass them around.
Once you’ve gotten the attention of your guests, what do you say? While the content of your speech is entirely up to you, here are a few tips for a successful toast:
- Stay positive and thank guests for sharing the evening with you.
- Feel free to take notes, either jot them down by hand or record them on your phone.
- If you can’t find the right words, use a quote that fits your sentiments for the evening.
- Whether it is family, business associates, close friends, or a combination of groups, gear the speech to your audience.
