A little party never hurt nobody – especially when it’s 2021 and we may well be celebrating New Year’s Eve at home! Don’t let the big C-19 stop you from having a great time this year as we’ve got plenty of inspiration for making it memorable. From delicious treats and drinks to games perfect for playing over Zoom we’ve got you covered for welcoming in 2022.

Prepare your toast early

Put a bit of effort into the preparations and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the celebrations, with something delicious in your glass at midnight! Get creative with fresh fruits, sparkling wine (or soda) and perhaps even a sparkler or two! We love creating a festive cocktail with Drunken Berries Mixers, the Summer Berries and Rum pairs especially well with Prosecco for a delicious fruity twist. It’s the perfect midnight tipple for celebrating New Year’s Eve at home.

Create a grazing platter

The best part of a party? The buffet! Take things to the next level by treating your eyes to a visual feast with a grazing platter. Perfect for nibbling on throughout the evening, you can arrange your platter in the day and keep in the fridge until the celebrations begin. Anything goes for grazing but we like to add a mix of cheeses, cured meats, veggie crudites and dips to start things off. Feel free to get as colourful and creative as you fancy!

Party like it’s 2021 (on Zoom)

We might all have a little bit of ‘Zoom fatigue’ from endless work calls, but it’s a great platform to be able to keep social with friends and even play a quiz or two! Thankfully, after last year’s lockdowns the internet is full to the brim of quiz rounds, including the ever-popular picture round! Wait until everyone’s had a few bevvies and watch the competitive spirits take over!

Have a silent disco in your lounge

Keep you’re dancing feed on the go and your neighbours happy by joining a Silent Disco this NYE. There are plenty of online events going on, hosted by companies such as ‘Silent Adventures’. Simply plug your headphones in, pop your Gladrags on and get ready to get down (in silence!). It might not be clubbing as we know it, but it’s surely the next best thing!
