With all that’s been going on, it’s crazy to think that we’re almost at the end of the year already. Amidst the fervent buzz of December holidays, festive season activities, family trips and much-needed getaways, there are also those all-important New Year’s Eve plans that we need to factor into our plans.


We all know that nothing sets the tone for another trip around the sun quite like a great New Year’s Eve party. That being said, we’re huge fans of hosting an at-home NYE party. It’s convenient, easy on the pocket and fun for everyone involved.


Check out our favourite at-home NYE party ideas that you, your family and guests – while following COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and hygiene practices – are sure to love!




You can’t go wrong with a themed NYE dinner party. It gives your party a fun, inclusive atmosphere and makes for a great conversation starter. Whether you choose black tie or go for something a little more extravagant – add some good food and some delicious mocktails into the mix and you’ve got yourself a fun yet responsible winner.
