New Year’s Eve is all about new beginnings. This year’s NYE might look a little different, but there are still TONS of ways to celebrate and welcome 2021. Whether you’re ringing in the New Year with a small group of friends or spending it with your fam on Zoom in your fave Aerie PJs, we’ve got some ideas to take it to the next level (and next year). Read on below to make this NYE the best one yet!
Our OFFLINE After Party Velour set is a must-have outfit for this New Year’s. This dreamy-soft, luxe velour is everything you need to kick it comfy. We love a monochromatic look (and that’s no exception for the holidays). Cozy is the best kind of after party!
We’re making charcuterie a little sweeter. Pick out some of your fave sweet and salty treats and get plating!
Start with the bowls. Use ramekin bowls to keep your spreads and smaller snacks in place. We used honey and olives, but you can use a fruit dip or (even a miniature version of a baked dessert!)
Using a cheeseboard, place the ramekins and bowls on the board, spreading them far enough apart to fit treats between them. For symmetrical items like crackers and cookies, place them in a row, matching the flow of the bowls (think fallen dominoes!).
Begin filling the gaps with other faves like pretzels, fresh fruit, nuts, and candy. Continue to fill up the board until there is very little marble showing. Enjoy your sweet spread!
New Year’s Eve is a wonderful time to reflect on your growth and the lessons from the past year. That’s why we’ve created some reflection questions for you and your friends or family to discuss with each other.
Try to focus on the positives such as a new friend you made this year or the best advice you’ve heard. Pick a card and then take turns answering the question you’ve pulled. While this is a great conversation starter or ice breaker, it’s also a wonderful way to realize the positive influence from the past year. Use our printout or create your own reflection cards!
