We are all celebrating the holidays differently this year, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. While we would love the opportunity to spend this exciting evening with you and your loved ones, we look forward to the promise of the new year and the hope that 2021 will bring us the ability to celebrate all of life’s joyous occasions together again! In the meantime, we’d love to offer some suggestions for how you can spend this New Year’s Eve and still make it memorable.
5 Ideas for a Festive New Year’s Eve at Home
- Family PJ Party
- Reminisce About 2020
- Countdown Bags
- Bake Off
- Serve Good Luck Food
If you can’t go out, nothing’s better than kicking back in your PJ’s with the fam! Spend the evening in your coziest get-up and slippers and count down to the ball drop with feel-good snacks like pizza and milk and cookies.
It’s the year none of us were expecting, and the year none of us will ever forget. Take New Year’s Eve as an opportunity to reminisce on all that has taken place over the last 365 days. Consider making a time capsule with your family and document precisely what this year was like for your future self and loved ones to look back on years from now.
A fun family activity for all! Keep your loved ones occupied as you countdown to 2021 by stuffing several bags with a different treat or activity to each be opened at an indicated time. You can get creative with this one to keep the fun going until midnight!
Who doesn’t love a little family competition? Hold a bake-off with your family members and see who can make the best dessert. Come up with awards for the best, tastiest, most unique, and even the most disastrous confection. One thing is for sure, win or lose, everyone will love devouring these sweets once the competition is over!
Because we can all use as much luck as possible as we head into the new year, consider a buffet of several culture’s versions of food that are said to bring good luck. In China and Japan, long noodles symbolize a long and prosperous life. Germans enjoy pickled herring for good luck. And at midnight, you can follow the Spanish tradition of getting a fresh start to the new year by popping 12 grapes in your mouth, symbolizing each stroke of the clock!
