This post is all about New Year’s Eve Party ideas to end 2020 the fun and right way. Hope you enjoy!

Who can’t wait for 2020 to be over?

I’m happy it’s gradually getting to that time of the year where we reassess, plan, have fun and hope for better days and years ahead

With all that’s going on in the world, it may be hard to find easy and simple ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve to end the year

In my part of the world, restrictions have gone down totally, people are moving freely so a New Year’s party in-person wouldn’t hurt anyone (not forgetting to observe all protocols)

However, a virtual party is still not a bad idea.

These New Year’s Eve Party Ideas can work both virtually as well as in-person when both sides plan well to make it a fun time

1. Cocktail Confessions

A good cocktail/mocktail is the perfect way to kick start your New Year’s Eve Party.

Themagnoliamamas.com topped off this beautiful cocktail with some cotton candy and it’s so beautiful. Having fun while spilling all the tea on life through the year.

2. Indoor picnic

An absolute fave when it comes to organizing an intimate party. Not only does it exert comfy and cosy vibes but adds on an extra dose of closure.

Ministylemag.com did justice to this decoration by hanging some starry garlands to give off a winter wonderland feel. Don’t forget to add those confetti balloons on the side as well
