Home Sweet Home
Don't want to venture out? Awesome, FUN is what you bring with you! Make it a night to remember with a themed event in your PJ's or play dress up. Create your own time frame by using on-demand countdowns with favorite characters or with different time zones.
•Try a “mocktail” party with DIY tiaras, party hats, confetti eggs, noise makers, and photobooth. Top it off with a make your own dessert bar and a specialty “mocktail” for toasting, and don't forget the tunes.
• Have a Camp-in…Build a Fort, reminisce about the year by flashlight, make s' mores, create a touch & feel box.
•Make it a Movie Night!!! Christmas movies to prolong the holiday spirit, maybe?
Make a Time Capsule
No New Year's Eve is complete without a TIME CAPSULE! Collect memorabilia and special items from the year, take photos, write down some resolutions, throw in some “what I am thankful for” notes, seal them up in a container of your choosing (I like mason jars), and decorate. Now you truly have a night to remember. Happy New Year!
