Staying home this New Year’s 2022? But, do you still want to glam up your evening? NYE at home is a very popular idea. If you’re looking for a few ideas to upgrade your evening, even if your outfit consists of sweats or pajamas, I can help!
NYE Snack Stations!
Instead of serving a traditional meal with everyone dining at the same time at home, why not mix it up with food stations for you and your family or guests to enjoy throughout the evening? One idea is a hot cocoa station (like the one I just talked about HERE), or another idea is a Parisian-inspired charcuterie station (posted ideas HERE). Your culinary creativity can come out celebrating NYE at home! You can prep everything before guests arrive and then sit back and enjoy the party (instead of spending all the time in the kitchen!)
Make it Personal!
Print out personalized labels for champagne or wine bottles to glam up your NYE at home! If you’re serving to a small group while at home, those mini-champagne bottles would look especially glam with labels YOU create! You can create some on Canva or purchase HERE and print in a minute!
Decorate your NYE Drinks (at home!)
Even adding something as simple as a fruit garnish can upgrade the look of the drink at home. A glammed-up at-home cocktail! Or, if you’re feeling extra fancy, try adding stirrers with pom-poms or NYE captions! Enhance the flavor with mulling syrups, or THIS cocktail smoking kit! Talk about a show-stopper! How about some flashy disco cocktail glasses? No matter what you select, the extra bit of adornment to the NYE drink will make it feel more festive!
Countdown to New Year’s Eve Bags
While waiting for the final hour or final minutes of the year at home, it might be fun to add in some activities! Take some gift bags and add “random” times from when your at-home party starts until midnight. When that time on the bag comes around, open it up and do whatever the activity is inside. Maybe it’s a question game or a quick (at home) spa treatment (fast facials or hydrating eye masks) or a prompt for a silly selfie! Mix it up and make it fun!
What will you be doing to celebrate New Year’s Eve this year? And will you be staying at home or venturing out?
