This New Years is looking much different than most, the thought of staying home for the countdown is definitely a change, but it’s also our new normal!
If you’re thinking of making your at-home New Years a little more exciting, keep reading for some ideas that will definitely get you inspired!
Make a scrapbook
2020 was a year for the books, and while this past year brought a slew of obstacles, for many of us this change in lifestyle encouraged us to discover new hobbies, DIY projects, baking escapades and many more interesting ventures. Making a scrapbook to remember some of the good times you had this year is a great way to reflect, look at your strength and resilience, and bring in the new year on a high note.
Make a Vision Board
This is a great activity to do with the family. Gather some magazines, news cut outs, glitter pens, and anything that makes you happy & put it on a poster. Hang the poster in a space that you often see in order to remind yourself of your goals.
Make a playlist, then DANCE!
Make a playlist of your favourite songs of the year to play during your household evening festivities. If you have Spotify, you can find a playlist of your most listened to songs in 2020!
One of my favourite parts of New Year’s eve is getting dressed up and bringing in the new year with all of my loved ones. This year as it will just be my household, I thought about staying in cozy attire – but after a second thought, I’m back on the getting dressed up train (even if it is just for myself and my fiancé!) For me, this is a way of bringing in the New Year with a feeling of normalcy. You can even FaceTime or Zoom your friends and family for the countdown so it feels like you’re all in it together!
I know by this point in the holiday season, you may be sick of fancy dinners, but bringing in the new year with good food is a must! Why not try something fun this year like homemade sushi? Check out these tips for making sushi at home for some inspiration. Another great option is ringing in 2021 with the JOEY NYE Celebration Kit. The Kit includes a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne, their famous truffle popcorn, and fresh-baked brownies. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? Click here for more details on their NYE kit.
NYE Cocktails are in order
Unleash your inner bartender and add a fancy cocktail to your night. I think I will be trying one of these Champagne Cocktails this year!
And of course, Dessert!
End the night with a decadent dessert. After all, 2020 deserves a sweet ending! Check out this list of 100 New Years’ Eve Desserts, I think ill be making the Sparkling Oreo Cookie Balls.
I hope these ideas were helpful in getting you inspired to bring in the New Year on a high! Wishing you a fun and safe New Years Eve.
