Life with children: it’s a party… just not the kind you used to go to. And that’s okay! New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and we hope you’ll seize the day and celebrate in style with your loved ones of all ages. Check out these fantastic, family-friendly ways for you and yours to ring in 2017 together.
Whatever your plans for the evening, whether you’ll be celebrating with a hundred of your closest friends or counting down the hours with just your immediate family, you’ll want to capture the event for posterity. Use these quirky photo props to lighten the mood and make even the most camera-shy guest feel bold because, really, everyone looks better with a paper mustache. These are waiting for you now in Design Space™!
Unplug, unwind and read in the New Year, no screens allowed. Each member of the family dons their favorite pair of pajamas, turns off their phone and spends the evening with tried and true friends such as Harry Potter, Ramona Quimby or Matilda. Bliss!
If you’re feeling social, set the scene at your New Year’s Eve dinner table with a noisemaker centerpiece. Guests of all ages will be charmed by this whimsical yet easy-to-achieve idea. We especially love this one from the incomparable Martha Stewart.
Take a hike. Or at least, go for a walk. Get some fresh air, let the little ones stretch their legs and enjoy the neighborhood’s holiday decorations one last time. After a month of sweet treats and parties, everyone will benefit from a little exercise.
There’s still plenty of time left for you to plan the New Year’s Eve celebration that’s perfect for you and your loved ones. Knowing that you’ll be asleep at midnight doesn’t mean that you still can’t have a blast!
