For those with young children at home, you may want to celebrate New Year’s Eve earlier in the day. Most parents suggest hosting a kid-friendly event between 6 pm and 9 pm so that your little ones can get to bed on time.
You can schedule a New Year’s Eve party for kids to start around 6 pm complete with healthy snacks, drinks, and some balloons they can pop when the “New Year” rings in, usually around 8 pm for younger kids. Once you’re done celebrating with the kids, put them to bed and start preparing for your adult New Year’s Eve party at home.
Plan the Drinks and Snacks
You’ll want to search Pinterest for some unique New Year’s Eve party drinks and snacks. There are so many options on Pinterest to choose from. We suggest you go with options that require fewer trips to the grocery store!
Create a menu of appetizers, finger snacks, and adult drinks that will satisfy every adult in attendance for your New Year’s Eve party at home.
Get Zoom Ready
If you’re looking to celebrate with friends and family virtually then get your Zoom room ready to go. You’ll want to set your laptop or smartphone in the proper location to feature everyone from your home so that you can communicate and “party” with your extended family members and friends virtually.
Consider doing a practice run of your virtual holiday party so that everyone is prepared with instructions on how to mute their microphone during the virtual New Year’s Eve party, and how to enter and exit the party during the party hours.
Get Dressed Up
Just because you’re partying at home this New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean you can’t dress up. Gather those fancy clothes and get all dolled up for this party. Look your absolute best to feel pretty and handsome during your New Year’s Eve party at home.
If you’re hosting a kid-friendly event, have the kids dress up in their favorite holiday outfits. They’ll enjoy dressing up and looking all fancy while they celebrate like the adults for New Year’s Eve.

Even if you’re planning to host a virtual party, you’ll have fun being as festive as possible. This year was a difficult one for many families, so now is the time to get all glittery and festive to increase happiness during your party.
