For some, New Year’s Eve is one of (if not THE) most important dates on their social calendars. But with that comes big expectations and the pressure to have the BEST NIGHT EVER. And let’s face it. It barely ever lives up to the hype. Not when going out on New Year's Eve means massive queues, expensive drinks and sold-out clubs. And that’s before we’ve even got on to the uncertainty around Covid this year.
But there is a way to have a truly memorable New Year’s Eve that won’t end with you waiting an hour for a taxi. And that's spending it at home with your nearest and dearest. From a cocktail party with your housemates to an extra special family night in, the following ideas will make your countdown to 2022 one to remember.
This is a great idea if you’re planning to have a night in with the kids this New Year’s Eve. Dig out your camping gear (sleeping bags, tents, camping chair etc.) and set up a campsite in your living room. Don’t have room for a tent? No problem. Get inventive with sofa cushions, duvet covers and pillows to build a cosy fort. Top off the experience with games and plenty of snacks for a unique and special evening.
Dress Up and Throw a Cocktail Party
Staying in doesn’t mean you have to miss out on glamming up this New Year’s Eve. You can still put on your sparkliest outfit and favourite jewellery (both our Cubic Zirconia Paved Square Stud Earrings and CZ Lever Back Hypoallergenic Earrings are perfect for the occasion!) to get into the party spirit.
If you’re celebrating with your housemates or a few friends, continue the classy vibes by taking it in turns to mix up a batch of your favourite cocktails (or mocktails) and crack out the bubbles for midnight of course!
Have a Karaoke Night
Want something a little less classy? How about spending the evening belting out your favourite songs on karaoke? You could even make it more exciting by raiding your wardrobe and dressing up as your favourite artists. Don’t forget to take plenty of snaps to capture your looks!
Covid has meant that many of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations have moved online. Which means you can now enjoy virtual fireworks displays, live music performances and even a virtual horror movie marathon from the comfort of your own home. And of course, there’s the now classic zoom quiz if you want to connect with faraway family and friends.
