New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year. We’re sharing 10 things to do on New Year’s Eve, whether you’re celebrating with friends or want a romantic new years with your significant other. Let’s say ‘bonjour’ to 2022 with a night you’ll never forget.
1. Host an elegant dinner party
Embrace your inner Maratha Stewart or Jackie Kennedy by hosting an elegant dinner party. Invite your nearest and dearest into your home to celebrate the New Year. Hosting a dinner party is easier than you think. You can even order the food to save time in the kitchen and experiment with decorations. Don’t forget to chill the champagne ahead of time!
2. Hit the town with your friends
New Year’s Eve is a time to spend with friends and family. Go off and explore the best of what your town has to offer by partying the night away. Seeing midnight in at a nightclub with friends is one of the best ways to welcome 2022.
Your New Year’s Eve dress is something you might spend weeks hunting for – looking out for the perfect plus one that will make you the center of attention. Our ‘Gwen’ mesh wristlet pouch ($42.00) will hold all your essentials for New Year’s Eve on the town.
3. Stay in with a movie marathon
With hundreds of things to do on New Year’s Eve, it isn’t all about partying. Not everyone is comfortable being in crowds. Your NYE party can be closer to home with a movie marathon. Swap your glamorous New Year Eve dress with satin PJs, invite your girlfriends around and grab your favorite snacks. Bonus points if you find on-brand snacks that match the theme of your movies.
4. Organize an NYE party
Bring the party to you by organizing your own NYE party. Have you always dreamt of hosting a party worthy of the Great Gatsby? An NYE party is a chance for you to get all your friends and family together to see in the new year. You can host it at home or another venue. If you’re feeling adventurous, take it to the next level with a masquerade party – saving the big reveals for midnight.
Wherever you’re hosting your party, bring along our ‘Trina’ metal mesh clutch ($48.00) to hold your party poppers for the big countdown to midnight.
5. Go to the Theatre
Your New Year’s Eve isn’t just the countdown to midnight. Add a hint of glamour to your day with a trip to the theatre. The festive season is a time when all our favorites are on the stage – whether it’s The Nutcracker or a festive pantomime. The theatre is the perfect way to celebrate a romantic new years and it can be a glamorous backdrop for an NYE proposal.
6. Watch an NYE firework display
Is it even New Year’s without fireworks? It’s one time of the year when we all feel like a kid in Disneyland. A firework display is the perfect place to see in the New Year and countdown to midnight in style. Pack a flask of mulled wine and bundle up with warm with a scarf and winter jacket. Your NYE firework display is destined to end up on your Insta stories. Our ‘Staci’ clutch bag ($40.00) will shine just as bright as the firework display.
7. Book a table at your favorite restaurant
New Year’s Eve isn’t just for experimenting with cocktails and champagne. It’s a time to celebrate with delicious food that makes us water at the mouth. Your favorite restaurant is guaranteed to be hosting an event for NYE. It might be a one-off menu or live music to make the occasion even more special.
Booking a table at your go-to restaurant means that you don’t have to worry about doing the dishes! A restaurant is a perfect excuse to splurge on a New Year’s Eve dress to match our ‘Alexis’ satin clutch ($21.00).
8. Check in to a bucket-list hotel
Reflect on the year that was by ticking something off your bucket list. We all have a hotel that we’ve dreamt of staying in. Whether it’s a 5-star hotel or a hidden gem, treat yourself to a stay somewhere special for NYE. It’s a romantic new year’s plan, whether you’re proposing or want to celebrate together in style.
Don’t forget to pack our ‘Chloe’ satin clutch ($42.00) to use in the hotel bar and restaurant.
9. Host a family reunion
New Year is the time to reconnect with your family and friends. Instead of going out partying, why not host a family reunion? After months of isolating and dealing with the pandemic, this festive season is the best opportunity for you to reconnect with the people you love most. You can take your first steps into 2022 with the people you love surrounding you.
10. Escape to the city
There’s no better place to celebrate the New Year than a city. Whether it’s London, New York, or Sydney, the cities are the places where you’ll find the best parties and firework displays. Everyone has to experience the hustle and bustle of a city on NYE at least once.
You’ll find some of our favorite things to do on New Year’s Eve in the city. You can do it all in one night – from a luxurious dinner to a theatre show and dancing the night away in a club. Our ‘Katie’ evening clutch ($42.00) comes with a crossbody strap that is perfect for a day in the city as a hands-free bag.
