Congratulations! You've found the perfect Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, and you're about to ring in the New Year in your new home. Spending New Year's Eve at home is a fantastic opportunity to bond with your loved ones while counting down to midnight.
Here's are some fun ideas to try out this NYE.
- Host a Holiday Movie Marathon
Are you a great fan of movies? There's something about long, high-fantasy adventure films that make them perfect for the holidays. The best part is you get to make some hobbit-inspired meals.
Food is a bridge into the world J.R.R. Tolkien masterfully created. Hobbits eat seven times a day, by the way. So, check out some Middle-Earth-inspired recipes and watch the extended editions of the Tolkien universe. Make sure to plan for extra blankets and pillows for the inevitable food comas that will follow.
- Try Your Hand at Mixology
Cocktails and New Year's Eve go hand in hand. Have each of your friends make a batch of their favorite cocktail, and the time will pass before you know it. You can also go the extra mile and take an online mixology class. It's a skill that's sure to impress your friends.
- Don't Forget About Party Games
Party games are guaranteed to keep your guests entertained and laughing all the way to the end. Murder mystery games are always a classic – even when it's not Halloween. A single murder mystery game or a scavenger hunt with clues spread all around the house is all you need for a night of fun.
Other fun games include Never Have I Ever, Mirror Charades, Trivia Games, or even the good old-fashioned Truth or Dare.
- Throw a Disco-Themed Bash
Sometimes, the best thing about New Year's is dancing the night away. But who says you have to go clubbing to do so? A disco-themed party sets the perfect tone and allows you and your friends to dance your way into the New Year.
Dress up in '70s attire and have the night of your life. Also, Spotify allows you to curate playlists with your friends. Now, no one can complain about the music.
- Don't Forget Sweets and Treats
Two things make for a happy New Year's Eve: delicious desserts and drinks. A dessert bar consisting of eggnog bundt cake, spiced rum and pear cake, and Bailey's chocolate cheesecake is sure to please partygoers and add a splash of spirit to your celebrations.
- Get Out the Glitter and Mood Lighting
Every New Year's Eve party could use more glitter—anything that sparkles, really. Add shiny metallics to your decorations—especially silver and gold. Break out any leftover Christmas curling ribbon and use it to decorate your light fixtures, doorway, lamps, and mantels.
Reduce the red and green decorations. You want the mood indoors to feel like New Year's, not Christmas. Get the fairy lights out and have a winter-white-themed party.
