Ringing in 2021

New Year’s Eve 2021 will look a lot different than last year’s celebration. Instead of heading out for a night on the town, many of us will be settling in for an evening on the couch. And in lieu of ringing in 2021 with dozens of friends, our guest lists will be limited to the people who live in our households. But just because your 2021 holiday is different doesn’t mean it can’t be just as festive, celebratory, and meaningful as years past. With the right amount of planning, you can throw an incredible New Year’s Eve bash right at home.

Watch the ball drop

To encourage social distancing, the Times Square ball drop will go virtual this year. Fortunately, the event will still feature performers and speakers, just like it has in years past. The ball drop will be streamed live on TV and social media from 6 p.m. to midnight Dec. 31 with first responders, frontline and essential workers, and their families being honored as special guests.

Get dressed up

Just because you’re staying home doesn’t mean you have to wear your PJs (although if you want to, you should!). Throw on your favorite holiday dress and some bold New Year’s Eve makeup. Who cares if the only one who sees it is the dog?

Pick up dinner from a local restaurant

The best way to ring in a new year is with a delicious dinner. Instead of going out to a local spot, pick up carry out instead.

We always suggest Bar Bosco, Stables Steakhouse, or Sushi Umi for an amazing festive meal.

Mix a cocktail

New Year’s Eve is all about the bubbly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t kick your glass up a notch by mixing a fabulous champagne cocktail. This cranbubble cocktail requires just a dash of cranberry & sugar topped off with champagne.

Play a game

The best thing about parties are the games — so make sure you’ve got a few on deck for New Year’s Eve. You can find a ton of games like Jackbox Games. The Logo Game, or Just Dance Now. If you’re calling into a party on video chat, there are also plenty of games to play on Zoom
