Listen to All
Steve: Hey Andrea, what do you think about having a New Year's party at our house this year?
Andrea: That's a great idea! We haven't hosted a party in a while.
Steve: We should start thinking about the guest list. Who do you want to invite?
Andrea: Let's invite our friends from work, and maybe some of our neighbors.
Steve: What about food and drinks? Should we provide everything or have people bring something to share?
Andrea: I think we should provide the main course and drinks, and ask our guests to bring a side dish or dessert.
Steve: Do you have any ideas for party games or activities?
Andrea: We could set up a board game area, or have a karaoke machine. What do you think?
Steve: Should we have a theme for the party, like a costume party or black and white attire?
Andrea: That could be fun. Let's ask our guests what they prefer.
Steve: I'm thinking of setting up a photo booth with props. Would you be interested in helping me with that?
Andrea: Sure, that sounds like a great idea. I'll help you gather the props and decorations.
Steve: What time should we start the party?
Andrea: I think we should start around 8 pm, that way people have time to eat dinner before they come.
Steve: Do we need to send out invitations, or can we just invite people through text or social media?
Andrea: I think we should send out formal invitations, it's more personal and adds to the excitement of the event.
Steve: Should we have a countdown to midnight and watch the ball drop on TV?
Andrea: Definitely! That's a classic New Year's tradition.
Steve: Do you think we need to hire a cleaning service to come after the party?
