So you’ve decided to throw a New Year’s Eve party, eh? You brave and wonderful soul, you. If you’re committed to welcoming the new year in style and making remarkable memories for your guests, you’re gonna need a little help. That’s why friendly, reliable TaskRabbits right in your neighborhood come in. Whether you need someone to help with logistics before the event, an extra pair of hands on site to be sure things go smoothly, or a skilled professional to take your shindig to the next level, TaskRabbit is here to help.

From guest check-in and set up to event photography and food preparation, there are dozens of party Tasks you can outsource.  Here are a few of the most popular things great hosts hand off to TaskRabbits:

Supply Delivery
Anyone who’s thrown a party dreads the pre-celebration ritual of maneuvering the Costco, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s parking lots to gather the needed quantities of beer, liquor, and champagne. And then of course you’ll need tiny plastic champagne glasses, deli trays, and dessert spreads. Oh yeah, and the ice. Wouldn’t it be great not to have to worry about the ice? Hire a TaskRabbit and you’ll never have to think of it again.

The easiest way to add a quick dose of class to your New Year’s Eve party is to hire a TaskRabbit to tend the bar. Whether you want someone with a deep interest in beer or wine, or someone who knows how to make a mean Manhattan, there’s probably a TaskRabbit near you ready to help out. Extra bonus? You get to focus on ringing in 2013 with your guests instead of worrying about the logistics of the midnight toast.

Clean Up
Whether you’re nursing a hangover or hoping to get an early jump on your New Year’s resolutions, you’re probably not going to want to spend the first day of 2013 cleaning up. You can hire a TaskRabbit to take out the recycling, handle the dishes, and mop the floor. It couldn’t be easier.
