This will be the first year in over 30 years that we will be celebrating New Year’s Eve without friends & family. We have hosted many parties over the years and traveled with friends to fun destinations to celebrate the new year. Although this year will be different, I wanted to explore some new ideas for New Year’s Eve.
Here are 5 New Year’s Eve at Home Ideas that will be a fun way to celebrate the New Year and create memories of a new type.
Plan a Meal Prepartion New Year’s Eve Party
Involve the whole family in a fun meal preparation party such as making Sushi, Taco’s or maybe a Fondue party. Get creative in the kitchen with a meal that everyone has to participate in.
You can even make the finished products a contest to see who made the most creative sushi roll. What a fun idea for New Years Eve!
Around the Fire Pit New Year’s eve party
We love using our fire pit in the spring and fall, however rarely use it in the winter. What about getting cozy with blankets, jackets, toboggins and gloves.
You can roast hot dogs and make smores while telling scary stories around the fire. See all the details about our outdoor kitchen and firepit area in this previous post.
Obviously, this is a weather permitting party but sounds like it would be fun.

Game Night – At Home on New Year’s Eve
If weather doesn’t permit, bring the party inside with a game night. Have several options to keep everyone from becoming bored. You can even play in your PJ’s
Heads Up is a fun charades game that everyone loves and it is free app for your phone or tablet.
A fun dice game is Left, Right & Center. Hours of fun and you can play for money. We use quarters so there’s never a great loss.
Games like Scattegories and other board game, as well as, card games such as Phase 10 and UNO are great options.

Wine Tasting New Year’s Eve Party
Another one of the 5 fun options is to explore new wine parings. Prepare several choices of appetizers, desserts, etc, to taste with the different wines. Use the evening to learn more about wine appreciation.
If you are not a wine connoisseur, playing bartender would be a fun idea for New Years Eve. Google some new recipes and try new mixed drinks for the evening. Here is a great recipe for Butterfinger Martini’s and you can see the recipe to make your own Kahlua on this post.
Old Photo’s – Fun Memories on New Year’s Eve at Home
Do you ever take the time to go through old photo’s? This would be a fun walk down memory lane.
Pull out old photo’s and try to find some from Christmas and New Year’s Eve Past.
Old photo’s have a way of reminding us of fun times we’ve not thought of for years. Even if your photo’s are on your computer, it’s still a fun way to end the year.
Watch the Ball Drop in Times Square – A New Year’s Eve Tradition
Although there will not a street packed with people, the party will still take place. So try to stay awake and count down the last minutes of this year, which was like no other.
I hope you have a Wonderful New Year’s Eve regardless of your plans!
