For me, New Year’s has not one single thing whatsoever to do with going out. It just doesn’t. I don’t want to try to find somewhere to go, save up for said expensive date, look for a sitter, drive on the roads with all the party people. I always stay home, and especially since Avery was born, we have a little fun night at home and here are my tips for a great at home New Year’s eve!


Alright, because I like to make things as easy as possible, let’s put together a checklist if you will. Something that breaks it down and makes it all as easy as possible! First, we need a fun place to put all the drink fixings so that everyone can enjoy all night long. If you are an extra awesome person, you can invite a friend over for your child and bonus if those parents do want to go out.

Next, put together your 7UP® and Canada Dry Ginger Ale® DIY drink bar for the kids. These are great because they are caffeine free so you don’t have to worry about kids staying up to late!


After the location is set and the sodas are present, there has to be a lot of fun mix ins. This is the part that makes it really fun for the kids because they feel like it is fancy and not your ordinary drink treat. I filled my ‘bar’ with lemon and lime slices, frozen blueberries, cranberries and pomegranate seeds. I also added some orange juice and pomegranate juice for them to mix in for extra fun as well! This goes with any dinner or as an after dinner treat!


Then, since it is New Year’s after all, we of course need some glitter glasses to enjoy it all in!


I let Avery make the first drink, you know to make sure everything was acceptable for company and this is what she came up with- yum! She put a little bit of everything in hers, naturally.


Once this is all set up, all you need are some fun party hats and a few friends and you are done!


The best part of all of this? It is super adorable and affordable because you can grab everything at Walmart– hallelujah!


What do you guys do for New Year’s Eve? Do you go out or stay in?
