Celebrating a Safe and Budget-Friendly New Year

It’s time to say goodbye to 2020! It’s been an interesting year, that’s for sure, but all things must come to an end. 2021 is a new chapter for all of us and we’re all excited to celebrate the coming of the new year. Check out our tips below on celebrating your new year with a safe and budget-friendly mindset.

Reuse Decorations and Get Creative

If you’re wanting to have some sort of celebration at your home, but aren’t looking to spend a lot of money, get creative with it! You can easily fashion decorations to set the theme of your New Year’s Eve party. If you have any wine corks or bottles you’ve saved over time, you can use them as festive decorations. You can even turn your wine bottles into chic-and-sleek candle holders if you have some taper candles lying around (these are also very inexpensive if you wanted to purchase some.)

Still have some plain white Christmas lights up? Leave them! The white lights set a festive ambiance for a fun New Year’s Eve get-together.

If you have any simple silver or gold tinsel/garland, this would also make for festive, simple decor.

Want to feature some inexpensive hors d'oeuvres? Use some of what you have around your kitchen, and don’t spend much on the rest. Things like deviled eggs, crudité platters, and mini pigs in a blanket are fun, easy, and inexpensive to make.

The possibilities are endless when you get creative and festive — don’t worry about getting too complex with it, just keep it simple!

Have a Small Get-Together

Many of us are still being cautious regarding large gatherings and social-distancing. Remember, you don’t need to have a long guest roster to have a blast. Invite your close family and friends that you’ve already been seeing over the last few months and if need be, encourage masks and social-distancing during the gathering. If you live in a warmer area, you could even have an outdoor gathering in your backyard to take an extra precautionary measure.

Have a Zoom Party

If your family and friends live far away, or you aren’t up for an in-person gathering, have a family Zoom party!

Many families, especially larger ones, are still social-distancing from anyone outside of their immediate household. Zoom parties are a fantastic way to spend time together without the need to meet face-to-face. There are many online games or activities you can play together over Zoom, and if you’re all in the same time zone, you can watch the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square together, too!

Whatever you decide to do to celebrate New Year’s Eve, make sure to have fun with it, be safe, and get creative to stay on a budget! Happy New Year!
