The holiday season is winding down, but not before the biggest event of the year: New Year’s Eve. And whether or not you’re hosting a soiree on the final night of the year, Rachel Miller, owner of RedRover Alley, has entertaining tips that any host or hostess can employ far past the last note of "Auld Lang Syne" and to every other special event throughout the year. 

“RedRover Alley is a great place for conversation pieces whether to give, to display or to inspire,” Miller says of the unique pieces — like a vintage Champagne bucket or pop-up beer garden table — she sources from around the world for shoppers with a playful eye. 

Miller, a practiced party thrower, also suggests adding to your New Year's resolutions to send paper invitations in the mail for any gathering you host in 2015. “It creates anticipation from the get-go,” she says. And as soon as those invited guests arrive, “Greet [them] at the door with tray of Champagne cocktails or another pre-poured libation.” (A bonus: “I personally love bringing a surprise to the table that creates conversation and laughter, like printed trivia questions, fun facts or conversation starters.”)
