Three Ways To Celebrate The New Year At Home With Family

December 11, 2021

What are you doing to celebrate New Year’s Eve? Whether you are hoping to catch the ball drop in New York City, or hosting an intimate dinner at home with your closest loved ones, planning an eventful night of celebration does not have to be difficult. If you want to ring in the new year surrounded by the people you love, consider these three ways to celebrate the new year at home with family.

New Year’s Eve Dinner

Since most people travel to be with friends and family on New Year’s Eve, it can be difficult for those who want to enjoy a nice meal with their loved ones. A simple solution is an elegant dinner in. Place a take-out order from one of your favorite restaurants and surprise your family with a fancy night of dining in by setting up the table in fancy linens and you can even include your toddler by setting a place at the table for him with one of the best plates for toddlers and a cute NYE bib. You can also host your own party, complete with decorations and music. Have fun placing dishes around your living room that serve as centerpieces for food and drinks. To save time on cleanup, use disposable serving items. It is also important not to forget about pets! Throw them a bone by decorating their bowls and harnesses with glittery accessories—no one wants an empty stomach when ringing in the new year!

Spending Time Together

Getting together with family and friends during celebrations can help you relax after a stressful year and celebrate all of your accomplishments. Although it’s fun to go out on NYE, it can also get expensive quickly. If you want to spend some time with your loved ones but keep spending under control, there are still plenty of ways for everyone in your family to have fun together on NYE. Here are three suggestions; make homemade pizza, make homemade donuts, or watch a movie together as a family with tons of treats and snacks laid out. This way you can also wear your favorite pair of sweats and a sweater or a modest house dress to stay comfy and cozy as you spend a relaxing New Years’ Eve at home with the people you love the most. Putting a cool spin on the ugly sweater trend, intarsia knits are a good way to elevate your work wardrobe with little to no effort. Make sure to that the sweater is tightly knit and long enough to cover the top of your jeans, even if you are wearing something casual like a naruto chibi holiday sweater or chibi naruto sweatshirt. 

Festive Decorations

As NYE approaches, it is nice to be able to mark that date on your calendar with a little festivity. Even if you are not going out for a big party, you can still easily dress up your home for New Year’s Eve. Even if you only have time and money for one or two decoration projects, they will add some warmth and welcome cheer to your special evening. A few strategically placed festive decorations will help get everyone in a holiday mood. Get started with do-it-yourself projects that you can find on Pinterest or Instagram. You do not have to go overboard, but you should do just enough to make your everyday home feel a little more festive.

While we do not typically spend New Year’s Eve with our families, it can be a great chance to spend time together. Consider some of these ideas for how to get in on all of the fun.
