New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, but celebrations might feel a little different this year. Creating a fun atmosphere to share with your family will help make it feel a little jollier, and these ideas will give you a head start on planning! Just because the party might be a smaller one, does not mean you can’t ring in the New Year with a bang! Here are some new year's celebration ideas for when you're at home.
Zoom Countdown Party
Zoom parties have become a fairly normal part of life, so why not use the technology to ring in 2021 with all your friends and family? If people live in different time zones, make it a game to celebrate each time the clock turns midnight by toasting or using party favors to make it a big deal. In between countdowns, organize fun games or share a favorite movie while enjoying everyone’s favorite treats.
Throw A House Theme Party
When celebrating with immediate family, it can be tempting to pop on your coziest clothes and snuggle up on the couch this NYE. While that is another great option, if you want to get everyone in the festive mood, why not throw a theme party? Order some accessories and costumes online depending on your theme, then have everyone dress up while you get ready to ring in a brand-new year. You can have a Roaring Twenties party or let everyone dress up as their favorite animal for some safari fun. The options are endless and will certainly add an exciting spin or possibly create a new tradition.
Explore The World From Your Living Room
Why not use this New Years to learn more about other countries traditions by implementing them into your own celebrations? You and your loved ones can research how other nations around the world bring in a new year and add some of their traditions to your own, then have countdowns for the different time zones to incorporate several celebrations in one.
Turn your NYE into a fun-filled game extravaganza and set up different stations where everyone can play new or classic board games, card games or any other kind of fun activity together. You can also set aside some time for everyone to write and share their resolutions so you can look forward as a family.
Just because large gatherings and parties are on hold, doesn’t mean this holiday has to be anything less than spectacular. What new traditions will you create?
