Celebrate New Year’s Eve However Makes You Happy


By Kylie Ora Lobell

The end of the year is coming up.

In the past, you went to parties and clubs, staying up all night drinking and spending money. Then, when you woke up the following day, you felt sick and you were broke. It was a stressful way to start out the new year.

You want to ring in 2017 in a more positive way, so you’re looking for alternative New Year’s Eve ideas. Instead of partaking in the traditional activities, you’d like to go for something that’s a little more unique.

The following New Year’s Eve ideas are fun, different, and sure to start your year off right:

Celebrate with a Romantic Dinner

You and your partner have turned into homebodies, and you’re proud of that. However, on New Year’s Eve, you don’t want to be stuck eating mac and cheese on the couch again.

Make sure to make an early reservation in order to avoid the midnight revelers. You can have your own celebratory Champagne toast—complete with classy Daphne Flutes by Fitz and Floyd—when you get back home.

Host a Gathering

You enjoy partying, but you don’t want to spend all your hard-earned money at a dark, loud club. Instead, you can host your own gathering of your closest friends.

If your pals are loath to break the plans they’ve already set, you can lure them in with the promise of a Maine Shore Seafood Bake from Harry and David. Pop one in the oven, and even nearby strangers will RSVP.
