1.) Make an Impressive statement- Speak about both the good as well as the bad aspects of the old year in a positive manner and focus on the changes it has brought about.

2.) Keep Your Toast Speech Brief-The most irritating thing for onlookers in your New Year’s Eve party would be to wait for your toast speech to get over. Make s statement not lengthening more than a few minutes when raising a toast. Look for the reaction of the audience. If they appear uninterested and start handling their silverware then you have taken up too much time in giving out a toast speech. End it fast to let others revel in the celebrations quickly.

3.) Avoid getting too preachy- Prepare a toast statement that does not make others feel like you are lecturing them on the good and bad. Focus only on a few things rather than including too many things in your toast statement when bidding adieu to the old year and ushering in the new one by raising a toast.

4.) Avoid saying anything negative or disrespectful –A toast statement should be free of any negative or disturbing thought. New Year’s Eve is the time to spread happiness, and to cheer for the occasion, avoid saying something malignant about anyone or anything while raising a perfect toast for the New Year.

5.) Write down the speech and practice it- If you are going to raise a toast for the first time and get a little nervous about it then it is best to write down a few lines. Write a brief toast speech, including a short introductory line, suggestion for a positive change in the New Year and then a short closing line that ends on a positive note.

6.) Acknowledge the people present to raise the toast - The perfect way of raising a New Year’s toast is to pay compliment and acknowledge the people present in your New Year’s Eve party. You can take the names if there are few people attending the party or you can end by saying ‘here’s to all of you’ if there are too many people around.

7.) Try drinking too much before raising a toast- Chances of giving that perfect New Year’s toast might get ruined if you get heavily drunk and are unable to even stand to raise the glasses for a toast.
