As 2020 is coming to a close, it’s time to begin planning how to welcome the long-awaited New Year! For many of us, New Year’s Eve will be celebrated at home. And, we have some fun ideas for New Year’s Eve that will make it a memorable one. You may have such a blast ringing in the New Year at home it just might become a favorite new tradition! From stylish outfit ideas to sparkly NYE home decor to fancy beverage and appetizer ideas to games to play at home, we’ve got you covered!

Dress to Impress

Staying home for NYE doesn’t mean you have to wear sweats or PJs. Of course, you can if you want – but we suggest dressing up! After all, you’ll still be taking photos with your loved ones to capture your memories of this special celebration so why not look a bit fancy?

Sundance has plenty of items perfect for a dressy-but-casual New Year’s Eve celebration in our Party & Special Occasions collection. And if you’re looking for some unique jewelry to elevate your outfit, our Golden Echo Necklace, La Luz Earrings and Diamond Tiara Ring are all stunning choices.

Plan Fun Games

You don’t have to resign yourself to another night of sitting in front of the TV just because you’re celebrating New Year’s Eve at home. There are plenty of games you can easily play that will keep that celebratory spirit up until midnight - and beyond for true night owls!  
Get the party going with a good, old-fashioned board game like Scrabble or Yahtzee. Pictionary is always a lively and fun option and is perfect if you’ll be playing with friends and extended family members over Zoom!

A few other games to add to the mix that will provide hours of fun for all ages include foosballshuffleboard, and ping pong. And don’t forget how enjoyable jigsaw puzzles are to work on with others - this 1,000 piece USA puzzle features a lot of fun facts and will give everyone a welcome challenge. Or opt for a personalized puzzle of your hometown!

Serve Elegant Cocktails

Nosh on Delicious Appetizers

You can’t get enough delicious eats on New Year’s Eve. Finger foods and other easy-to-eat appetizers are smart choices since you can graze on them throughout the night and in between activities. 

Pick a good combination of appetizers - veggies and dips, lettuce cups, egg rolls, meatballs, puff pastry bites, nachos, mini sandwiches, pretzel bites and deviled eggs are some great options. But no matter which foods you choose, a must-have is a cheese board. 

Cheese boards not only serve as a beautiful centerpiece but, when assembled with a thoughtful mixture of different types of cheeses, dried fruits, nuts, chocolates, and more, they offer a little something for everyone! Get one or more of our lovely Artscape Boards to showcase one or more cheese board creations.
