Can you believe that 2021 is almost over?! I certainly can’t! As hectic and crazy as it has been, living through another year of a global pandemic, things do seem to be on the mend. If you’re looking to celebrate the new year with the bash of a lifetime, we have some ideas for you! Special décor, ideas for party favors, and fun can all be found below!
Happy crafting and happy new year!
Select a Fun Theme
It’s been a rough couple of years, so if you’re having a party to bring in 2022 with friends and family, why not come up with a super fun theme! You may choose a classic, like a masquerade ball or murder mystery party. You could also choose to pick a decade theme. You might even go as far as to have a pandemic themed party! Someone may choose to come dressed as a roll of toilet paper, face mask, or a hoop skirt that forces social distancing!

Play a Game with Facemasks
Are you going to require facemasks at your party? If so, why not make them a game?! You could have guests play a game where they are not permitted to know what is on their own mask and instead they have to guess based on the puns or subtle comments made to them by other guests, just like the “What’s on my Headband” game. You could also write an accent that they have to speak with all night or a character they have to embody through the party. What fun!
