10 New Year's Eve Ideas to Ring in 2021: Quarantine Style

Goodbye 2020, Hello, 2021



There is no denying that 2020 has been a strange year. With New Year’s just around the corner, many of us will be celebrating at home this year rather than going out on the town. But that doesn’t have to put a damper on your New Year’s Eve plans. Read on for these festive and entertaining ways to ring in the new year at home. 

  1. Decorate Your Home 

One of the best ways to get in the holiday spirit is to prepare your home with festive holiday decorations. String up some bright lights, hang up a Happy New Year banner, spread confetti, and of course don’t forget balloons! 

  1. Dress Up (or Down)

If you love to dress up for New Year’s Eve don’t let celebrating at home stop you. Even if you're celebrating this NYE in your living room. Go full-on glam with your favorite cocktail dress, heels, and make up if it makes you feel festive. On the other hand if you love to be comfy, celebrating NYE at home this year makes your coziest pj’s a great option.

  1. Feast on Your Favorite Snacks

You can’t ring in the new year without your favorite dishes. Finger foods are a great option for New Year’s Eve as they can be snacked on throughout the night. Charcuterie boards, fondue, dips, and festive champagne cocktails will keep you feeling full and festive this NYE.

  1. Share Your Favorite Memories of the Year with Loved Ones 

Sharing good memories, important milestones, and funny stories from the past year with loved ones is the perfect way to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. 2020 was challenging and forced us to adapt and change many aspects of our life. But it also brought families together, made us more creative, and inspired new traditions. Sharing stories of 2020 is sure to be a memory that will always be remembered.

  1. Have a Movie Marathon 

What better year than 2020, to opt out of the traditional hustle and bustle of New Year’s Eve and just relax? Kick up your feet and welcome 2021 with a movie marathon! Stream your favorite movies or series and cuddle up with your coziest blanket for a laidback New Year’s Eve.

  1. Have a Game Night 

Playing games is a surefire way to have fun while celebrating New Year’s Eve at home. A game night is inexpensive, easy to plan and is a great option for the entire family. Check out these fun game ideas for New Year’s Eve: 

  • Charades 
  • Two Resolutions and a Lie
  • Poker
  • Board Games
  • Bingo

  1. Host a Zoom Event 

Ring in the new year with family and friends, even if you’re not physically together to celebrate this year. Zoom, FaceTime and Skype have made it easy to virtually party with your loved ones. So hop on a call, toast to the new year, and enjoy seeing familiar smiling faces. 

  1. New Year’s Eve Balloon Countdown 

A fun new tradition spreading across the internet is a New Year’s Eve balloon countdown. Every hour pop a balloon that contains a paper labeled with an activity for that hour. Kids love this festive activity and it can be as easy or extravagant as you’d like.

  1. Write Down Your New Year’s Resolutions 

What better way to ring in the new year than with a plan of action for 2021? Did you know that setting new year resolutions dates back to more than 4,000 years ago?!  Setting resolutions for the new year is the perfect way to stay focused on your goals and self development. 

  1. Celebrate at Midnight!

Last, but certainly not least, celebrate as the clock strikes midnight! Whether that be with a toast, watching the ball drop, a midnight kiss, or by lighting off some sparklers with your loved ones. Be sure to welcome 2021 with a smile. 


Happy New Year from your friends at SouthShore Fine Linens!
