New Year’s Eve Isn’t Cancelled!
2020 has been quite the year, so it’s time to say goodbye (with just a teeny bit of good riddance) and welcome 2021 with some much needed comfort, satisfaction and celebration of the most important things in life. Whether that means hosting your very own NYE Zoom party, enjoying a pampering night in or hitting the hay early to greet 2021 refreshed, let’s make it special!
You’re on mute!
Zoom has been like a new family member this year, with lots of us needing it for work, catching up with the family and getting our quiz on. Since we’re limited on what party antics we can get up to, it makes sense to extend remote invitations to friends and family for a NYE party over video chat. You can each enjoy your own personal snacks and drinks (without worrying about picking up the wrong glass) and have a laugh without having to travel any further than your kitchen. You could even stay in your pyjamas for the duration (or keep it party on the top and super cosy on the bottom ). Keep the conversation going by playing fun quizzes (you could each host a round), making cocktails together or just having a lovely catch-up… just remember to take yourself off mute!
Pamper station at the ready
You know who deserves a night of pampering? You do! So if you fancy a quiet night in, get your favourite music on, whip out the facemasks and cucumber slices or maybe even get yourself a cheeky box of chocolates, your favourite drink and pop on that film you never get tired of. Whether it’s having the ultimate ‘zen’ moment after the kids have gone to bed or doing something that is just for you from crafting to having a nice soak in the bath, take the time to focus on yourself. Just remember, you don’t have to stay up late to enjoy New Year’s Eve. Treating yourself an early night sounds dreamy to us, and means you’ll be feeling fresh for 2021.
Make new traditions and get your game on!
This time of year is usually full of traditions, but with 2020 going haywire you might not be able to do them as usual. Instead of mourning the ones you can’t do, it’s a great opportunity to start something new. Have a party for you household at home full of your favourite foods, wear your pyjamas all day, or maybe write a letter to your future self or have a game-a-thon. Most of us have a competitive streak (even if we keep it quiet) and game playing doesn’t have to go on the back burner just because we’re having a quieter NYE. Whether you’re the champion of card games, a console champion or Charades miming master, there are plenty of fun options to get you laughing out loud and trying to keep hold of your winning title whether you’re playing online or with other game lovers.
Whatever happens, there’s no doubt that New Year’s Eve (like the rest of 2020) will be a memorable one. We hope you make it a special evening, however you’d like to spend it, and we can’t wait to see you in 2021!
