Celebrate a Stylish New Years Eve at Home

Watching the ball drop from our couches this year can still be very glamorous. Even if it’s just your home squad ushering in the new year together, it’s still a celebration-worthy occasion and a good excuse to swap out the Santa decor for something a little more glitzy. 

Read on for ideas to glam up your home to celebrate a rockin’ New Year’s Eve at home in style! 

Theme It Out

Choosing a theme can guide your style choices all the way through decor, food, music -- everything. You can base your theme off a style trend you like, color scheme, an activity, food, movie, or a faraway location you resolve to go to in 2021, like: 

  • Boho chic
  • Black & white
  • Movie marathon
  • All-day brunch
  • Space quest

Stock Up (and Switch Out) Your Bar Cart

Your bar cart is going to be working hard all day. Think of your New Year’s Eve beverage plan as multiple courses, then swap it out throughout the day. You can even have family members create a “course” they’re in charge of, so everyone gets in on the action -- from choosing the festive glassware to decorating the bar cart.

Start with cocoa and all the fixings, set up an at-home coffee bar for a midday pick-me-up, and, of course, finish off with bubbly and sparkling cider for the midnight hour.

Make a Selfie Station

Your extended friends and family will be there with you in spirit because you’ll be sharing everything with them on social media. Make like an influencer and load up your wall, mantle, or bookcase with themed-out wall decor, lighted garlands, statement clocks, and twinkling lights. For a fun family craft idea, make your own photo booth props. 

Set a Special Table

Easy and elegant touches take your tabletop from everyday to partyday, whether you’re serving takeout or surf and turf. White with mixed metals is an effortless and celebratory look. Layer a metallic patterned tablecloth under a shimmery silver runner, and add napkins adorned with sparkly napkin rings and stark white dinnerware

Tablescaping tip: mixing low mercury glass votives and a high crystal candelabra of varying heights adds instant drama and sophistication to your tabletop. 


Watch the Virtual Ball Drop

You can still ring in the new year with your loved ones near and far by inviting everyone to join together for a virtual New Year’s Eve ball drop party. Set a dress code if you wish (PJs or dress up?), and share a champagne cocktail recipe you can all prepare in advance. We like this rosemary pear champagne cocktail from bonaippetit.com. Log in early, play silly games, then cheers to a new year that’s filled with new possibilities and even more special times with the ones you love.
