New Years Eve is tomorrow, and is probably looking a little different than previous years. When we think of New Year’s Eve, we think of parties, champagne, friends and dancing, and while we can still do those things, it may be at home with less people than before. We’ve put together some fun ideas for celebrating at home, that you and the family (or a few close friends) will love.

Zoom call- If you can’t celebrate with loved ones, get on a FaceTime or Zoom call with them, it will feel like you are actually together for the night, and it’s a more personal, fun way to catch up. Another fun idea when on Zoom, is take family photos with the others on the call, The Jones Group did this for Christmas, and It was a blast!

Get dressed up- Just like you would do if you were going out, dress up! 

Cook a fun meal- For those that go out for a yummy meal on NYE, make something at home instead, or if your favorite restaurant is open, order food to-go from there and enjoy at home.

Snacks- Get creative with snacks and make some fun stuff to snack on all night. Some ideas are: nachos, chicken wings (mix it up with sauces), garlicky shrimp dip, meatballs, hot crab dip, and so much more. Check out the delish website for some ideas!

Fun traditions to start- Eating 12 grapes at midnight stands for 12 months of good luck for the year to come in Central and South America. If you still have your Christmas tree up, take the Christmas decor off, and decorate bright, fresh new decorations for the new year. Check out Oprah Magazine’s fun tradition ideas you should start this year.

Goal setting- If you prefer to journal, grab some paper and a pen, if not that’s fine, but it’s a good time to really reflect on 2020, and what worked for you and what just didn’t and get clear about what you want in the year to come. It’s fun to write them down, that way this time next year, you can look back and see if you stuck to your goals.

Watch the ball drop- When we are out at a party, we rarely watch the ball drop, so turn it on your TV and celebrate as if you were there, counting down the new year.

What traditions do you and your family or loved ones have? Take photos, and tag us on social media, we would love to see!

Happy New Year, and cheers to 2021!
The Jones Group
