Step 1: Invite everyone by text. Obviously.

Step 2: Ask guests to bring a drink – preferably milk for a civilised cup of tea.


Step 3: Add Moriarty’s Staying Alive ringtone to the playlist. The irony will be enjoyed. 


Step 4: But don’t forget a bit of violin music is always a hit.


Step 5: Ask guests to bring their own refreshments. 


Step 6: And possibly check for blood on the carpet and holes in the wall. 


Step 7: People love Quavers, right? Don’t forget to put out a couple of bowls.


Step 8: If conversation dries up, try pass the parcel…


Step 9: … but definitely don’t suggest a game of death frisbee with a deerstalker hat. 


Step 10: Try and get dressed before your guests arrive. Though if a bed sheet is good enough for Buckingham Palace…


Step 11: Maybe don’t let people smoke in the house. New Year’s resolutions and all that, eh?


Step 12: People have a habit of coming back from the dead. Keep an eye out for unwanted guests. 


Step 13: You may be the host but there’s no need to hover on the sidelines. Branch out. Make some new friends. Yes, friends


Step 14: Let’s be honest, someone will take it too far. Have a spare bed ready.

Step 15: Definitely have your New Year’s Day viewing sorted for necessary post-party recovery.
