As you all are aware that the year 2020 was filled with unpredicted sufferings, challenges and tension because of the pandemic. Even though the year is coming to an end, it is more important than ever to follow all the safety practices like wearing masks, social distancing and limiting social gatherings. So, this year, try to limit your social gatherings and celebrate New Year with your family. Celebrating New Year at home doesn’t mean that you can’t dress up or you have to spend your New Year lying in your bed. There are so many creative and fun ideas that you can implement at home to mark the end of 2020. Here are some of the innovative ideas that you can execute to make your New Year more happening.
1. GET DRESSED UP
Who said you don’t have to dress up for house parties? Just because you are not going outside doesn’t mean you have to wear your pajamas. Wear your best outfit just like you do at every New Year party. Search for great photo ops in your home and click your best pictures.
2. PREPARE A SCRAPBOOK
You can’t deny the fact that the year 2020 cannot be forgotten. Despite all the bad things that happened, there might be some good memories with the year that you can put together in a scrapbook. It can be anything like spending time with your family, the dishes you have prepared and more. It is one of the best ways to get creative and think about the good memories you have made.
3. HOST A VIRTUAL NEW YEAR PARTY
Invite your relatives and friends for a virtual New Year party on Zoom and Google Meet. This is a great way to celebrate the New Year with all your loved ones. You can play some fun games with them on a video call to make your New Year more happening. There are various games which you can play virtually like Dumb Charades, Antakshari and more.
4. PREPARE SNACKS
As you will be partying late in the night for the New Year celebration you will surely need some snacks to eat. So, you can even hold a culinary competition for the people in your house. Each person in the house will prepare some dish and the winner will be the king or queen of the night.
5. MAKE A SWEET DISH
No festival or party is complete without a sweet dish. Create a list of a few desserts you want to prepare and start baking them on the 31st morning. What could be better than a dessert to end such a crazy year?
6. CLICK PICTURES
As you are all dressed up for the party so why not click some beautiful pictures to create memories. Almost everyone loves clicking pictures. You can even buy some party props to get Insta-worthy pictures.
7. DANCING & SINGING COMPETITION OR KARAOKE NIGHT
Have a dancing and singing competition for your family members. Also, add a competitive aspect to it by keeping some reward for the winner. It will not just make your party fun but also create interest in the competition among all the family members.
