Still more interested in celebrating in your PJ's or with a group of friends at home? Here are some great ideas to bring in the New Year at home!

1. Snack Tray

Create a huge snack tray filled with all of your favorite fried foods and/or snacks.  Keep refilling it as the long night goes on, so you and your family/ friends can eat all night long.  The work outs and diets can start in the new year!


2. Karaoke

If you have speakers, a microphone, and a computer, this is such an easy way to have a fun New Year’s Eve. Whether you jam out to some Christmas songs, or the best pop songs of the year, karaoke is a great ice breaker and a fun way to get in a mix of seriously making music, or just messing around and being silly with friends.


3. Photo booth

Photo booths can be really easy to set up- all you need is some kind of backdrop, props, and a camera.  The backdrop could be something as simple as a table cloth hung from the ceiling, and the props could be something as easy to find as crazy scarfs or glasses.  If you’re looking to create more of a professional looking booth, special New Year’s Eve props can be found at many party stores, as well as online.  These usually consist of props that are customized to fit the coming year. Kids and teens always love things like this, and it’s a great way to document the evening.


4. Themed Party

Any type of theme party would be tons of fun as well!  The decorations, food, music, and attire should all match this theme in order to make it legit.  A popular themed party for New Year’s Even seems to be Great Gatsby, but if you’re looking for something a bit more unique, try something humorous like a summer in December theme!


5. Game Night

This is a great option for families because it consists of playing everyone’s favorite games! Whether you decide to make it a board game night, a Wii game night, or maybe even a mix of the two, having a little friendly competition is always fun.


6. Movie Marathon

An easy way to stay occupied while waiting for the New Year is to watch a ton of movies! Depending on when you start, you could make it through the three Santa Clause movies, or even the majority of the Harry Potter series! I would suggest either watching all of the remaining Christmas movies you have yet to watch, or maybe even let each person in your friend group or family pick out one movie to watch that was their favorite of the year.
