Fabulous New Year’s Party ideas 2022

This past year was a wild ride, but there are plenty of good things on the horizon — and that’s worth celebrating. When it comes to New Year’s Eve, there’s no better way to kick off another trip around the sun than by throwing an awesome party — but if you’re going to celebrate this year, just make sure you’re doing so responsibly. We know it’s hard around the holidays, which are normally a time filled with parties and family festivities, but it’s important to follow the current government advice and guidelines to minimise the spread of COVID-19, especially as the Omicorn variant is rapidly spreading.

You can opt for a small masked gathering, or have your party over Zoom. From décor ideas to delicious desserts, we’ve got some great tips to start 2022 off on the right foot.

No matter what your NYE party theme is, you can never go wrong with cute decorations, a sparkly outfit, yummy nibbles and lots of champagne. Whether you’re keeping it small with a few friends or going virtual, here are some of our favourite New Year’s Eve party ideas to help end 2021 with a bang.

Have a New Year’s Resolution Jar

Get everyone to start thinking about their New Year’s resolutions by encouraging them to write down their goals. Put a jar out with blank cards or pieces of paper so everyone can stash theirs in their purse or pocket.

Create Mini Champagne Bottle Labels

Your pals will be so excited to see they each get a mini champagne bottle as a party favour (even if they live at home with you, and they probably saw you assemble them). You can print up your own, or go for a surprisingly cheap label designed by a pro.

Play a Party Game

Get the party going with a good, old-fashioned board game. Scrabble and Yahtzee are always fun if you’re celebrating in person with people in your household, but Pictionary is definitely ideal if you’re playing over Zoom.

Have a Party Game Handy

Instead of traditional card games, try a printable challenge. You can instantly download a PDF of these game cards on Etsy and print them out on card stock — or you come put them in randomize generator if you’re playing over Zoom. You can also customize the text on the bottom to fit your group better!

Try Your Hand at Mixology

Cocktails and New Years go hand-in-hand, after all. If you’re celebrating in person, have everyone in your household come prepared to make a batch cocktail of their favourite drink — just make sure you get enough supplies ahead of time. If you’re celebrating over Zoom, find a fun cocktail recipe that everyone can follow along with at home as you video chat!

Decorate Your Drinks

Sure, champagne is already festive — but there are a few ways to kick it up a notch. Before your party, hot glue a few gold pom-poms onto wooden skewers to make your drink a little more exciting.

Recap the Year

A lot can happen in 365 days, and New Year’s Eve is a great time to reflect on it all. Choose the most special moment that you experienced this year, and everyone can join in on your feel-good story!

Dance It Out

Have everyone you’re celebrating with choose one song, and then turn them all into one big dance party playlist. Spotify has a feature were multiple users can edit a playlist — so that should make it easy. It’ll be fun trying to guess who added what — who knows? You may just learn a thing or two about your friends’ music tastes!

Serve Boozy Desserts

On New Year’s Eve, it’s totally acceptable to put alcohol in everything — especially dessert. These Baileys banana trifles will be a hit all night long.

Don’t Forget the Sparklers

If there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s that you need a plan for when the clock strikes midnight! Sparklers are a fun (and often inexpensive) idea to go with a champagne toast.
