Ways To Make New Years Eve Special At Home

I think we all have come to accept that there isn’t one holiday in the past 10 months that as been normal.  We haven’t celebrated with our families, and it has just flat out been/felt weird.  I know that many of us are saddened that there isn’t the opportunity to go out and celebrate New Years Eve in a traditional fashion, however you can still make the night special from home with a few of these ideas:

  1.  Dress up.  That’s right just because you’re celebrating at home doesn’t mean you can’t dress up.  Heck, even I’ve taken to wearing make-up every day even though I don’t really have anywhere to go just for the fact that it makes me feel good.
  2.  Create a signature cocktail for the evening.
  3.  Do what we’ve been doing for months now with special events, have a Zoom New Years Eve party
  4. Watch the ball drop from Time Square.  Yes even that celebration will be more virtual but at least the tradition of the ball dropping is still going to happen, and I know we are all looking forward to it.
  5. Make some of your favorite appetizers, and why not share recipes with your friends so you all can be enjoying the same food?
  6. Plan a Zoom toast with friends to ring in 2021.
  7. Bing Netflix – it’s a great time to watch Tiger King if you haven’t already
  8. Host a virtual dance/karaoke party
  9. Charcuterie Board anyone?
  10. Pop some confetti at midnight
  11. Create a decadent dessert worthy of 2021
