Low on cash? Don’t know where to go to? Have all the tickets to events been sold out already? Don’t worry. There are lots of things you can actually do, at home on New Year’s Eve to make it special.
Here are a few ways you can make your New Year’s memorable!
STACK ON YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD
Shed the money you have been saving up to spend partying on New Year’s Eve on your favourite snacks or food. Order your favourite food from different food joints and enjoy a variety of wholesome meal either alone, with your boyfriend/girlfriend, friends or family.
All you need is good speakers, microphone and a computer to enjoy a karaoke night at your very own house. Karaoke nights can be enjoyable both when you have a wonderful set of singer friends and when you have a bunch that can’t sing a line.
SET UP A PHOTO STALL
All you need is a few props and a flashy background. You can try hanging a colourful curtain from the ceiling to create the background and get New Year’s accessories from the market to pose with.
A FASHION PARTY
It is similar to a costume party, where you can have your friends and yourself dress your best according to your personal tastes, and then set up a jury from among a few other friends to help choose the best dressed, who then shall be endowed with a token gift.
Throw a party at your place based on a particular theme – say Arabian Nights or anything you like and create a temporary home decor keeping in mind the theme of the party. Dress up and ask your friends to come dressed up according to the theme.
A GAME MARATHON
Board games or video games; sit with a bucket of chicken fries and coke on the side and enjoy playing with family or friends until New Year arrives!
You are never too young to play hide and seek, though. Just thought of letting you know.
WATCH MOVIES OR CARTOONS ONE AFTER THE OTHER
Have yourself and friends pick out a favourite movie or cartoon each and watch them one after the other till the clock strikes 12. It’s a great way to while away time.
BAGS FULL OF GIFTS TO OPEN EVERY HOUR
Keep bags full of gifts for every hour until 12 midnight that you can open up along with your friends or your partner. This helps in keeping you going and cutting boredom out, because you are left in anticipation of something exciting every hour, to crop out of those bags.
CONJURE UP A BAR AND MIX COCKTAILS
If you already have one, then just dress it up to make it look flashy enough for the New Year. Download recipes for cocktails from the internet and spend time making mixing them. Ask your friends to help and enjoy getting drunk at your self-made bar. You can play some music on the background of course.
GIVE YOURSELF A MAKEOVER
Restyle your hair, opt for a hairdo, or wear something sexy but absolutely unlike your taste. You don’t want to look regular but different.
If you want this difference in your look to make itself more impactful and prominent then wait until the midnight to reveal it to your partner or family, whoever be it.
You don’t need to go clubbing, and dance among a tonne of drunk or sloshed unknown people but you could hold a dance party at your own place and invite your close friends or loved ones to join you.
This could be a fun event because you’ll experience an atmosphere similar to that of a club, the only difference being that you will be around known faces.
MAKE A FANCY TENT OUT OF YOUR BLANKETS
Make a cosy or gaudy tent using all your blankets and curtains. Hang a line of pretty light bulbs all over them and sit inside comfy with your love with a glass of fine cocktail and a romantic movie or music playing on the background while your friends and family have a blast right outside of the tent, whom you can join later on.
COOK A FANCY MEAL
You could cook a fancy meal even if you’re all alone or surrounded by friends and family. You could either, ask your friends to get an item of their own each or come over and help you cook your fancy meal and then have a gala dinner.
If all else fails and it doesn’t matter to you whether it is New Year’s Eve or a regular night, just go to sleep, snug in your bed and if your partner is there to accompany you then maybe cuddle and sleep together after a session of love making? Sounds good?
