Put your party hats on! It is that time of the year. 2020 did not go as we had hoped for and we surely cannot wait to bid goodbye to it. So, let’s come together and say, “Adios!” to it the same way we welcomed it.
With the threat of coronavirus still looming over us, it is safe that we shouldn’t step out to celebrate. But that doesn’t mean we cannot welcome the coming year. Our suggestion? A house party! We were all by ourselves, stuck at home for most of the year, but now that we can visit or invite our friends and family, why not do it! A new year house party is the perfect plan to bid goodbye to 2020.
To make your new year house party even better, we have some new year party ideas that can be implemented at home with ease.
Make a Memory Board
Surely 2020 was not everything we hoped for it to be. But keeping the not-so-positive part of it aside, let’s focus on the bright side. Many people, even your closest friends, and family had some happy moments in 2020 like becoming parents, getting married or engaged, a new job and many more. Make a memory board of all the good things that happened in 2020. All you need is to ask your guests to list that happy memory down by writing it on a sticky note and stick it to a wall. Let your happy memories outshine everything else that happened this year.
With this new year celebration idea, end 2020 on a positive and happy note!
Plan a Movie Marathon
A movie marathon is an old, classic way to enjoy with friends and family. Ask your guests for their movie preferences and make a list of all the movies you can enjoy together on new year’s eve. Some warm blankets, a cup of delicious hot chocolate and a new year movie marathon make for an amazing new year party idea. Some of the movies you can watch with your friends and family are Home Alone Series, The Holiday, New Year’s Eve, While You Were Sleeping, The Family Stone, etc. Cosy up with this new year house party idea.
Game Night Party
Don’t favour glitz and loud music at a party? Ring in the new year with a fun games night! Have a joyous night with card games and board games like Monopoly, Carrom, Scrabble, Pictionary, etc. with your gang! You can also indulge in video games with the PlayStation. Some more games like Antakshari, Dumb charades, Tambola, Never have I ever, etc., can be played too, if you have a big group of friends coming over. There are endless games you can conduct as a host for your party.

One can never go wrong with Karaoke. It is easy, fun and an enjoyable ice-breaker during a party. It also serves two purposes i.e. music and fun! One might not hit the right tone every time, but the point is to let loose the inhibitions and enjoy the moment.
Make sure to include this in your new year party ideas list.
Make Your Own Photobooth
What’s a new year celebration without some pictures! A lot of easy photo props can be made at home or bought from a store nearby. Set up a good and ideal spot in your house with all the festive supplies and make sure that the wall is decorated with golden fringes, balloons and ribbons to make it more festive. You can also use an instant camera and give away copies to your guests as memorabilia.

Chat away at the dinner table with a potluck! Different cuisines, different flavours but all made with love. Potluck dinner makes it easier on the host since they do not have to cook all the food for everyone if you're hosting it at home. And, it also allows trying out different dishes made by everyone.
Potluck Dinner makes for a good idea to celebrate the new year at home.
If you are thinking of spending the night having fun, you might as well be comfortable! And nothing spells comfort like the effortless pyjamas. Inform all your guests to wear their comfiest and festive pyjamas at the pyjama theme party and enjoy finger food, hot cocoa and some games! The added benefit of this is when the party's over you can go straight to bed.
The Pyjama Party makes for the most comfortable new year celebration idea at home.
Dance The Night Away
Welcome, 2021 with all the energy you have in your body! Dance the New Year’s Night away with your guests. As a surprise element, ask each of your guests to suggest a song and create a playlist. It can be a great way to know each other’s music taste.
This one is for sure, a great new year party idea.
New Year’s Resolution Bowl
We all make new year’s resolutions. But are we successful in fulfilling them? This year, let’s write them down! Tell all your guests to write their new year resolutions on a piece of paper and put it into the bowl. When everyone has written their new year resolutions, read it aloud and guess who might have taken that resolution. It is a good way to interact with your friends and family and might even give you a glimpse of what they’re looking forward to in the coming year.
