5 Ways to Ring in the New Year from Home

5 Ways to Ring in the New Year from Home

This New Year's Eve, you may not be headed to Times Square or a wild party, but you can still welcome 2021 in style from the comfort of home. We have put together our top five suggestions for how you can usher in the New Year in a fun and safe manner.

Make It Scent-sational

Nothing changes a vibe or improves an ambiance as quickly as scent does. Try one of our hotel-inspired products for the perfect staycation. Our fragrance oils, room sprays, candles, and reed diffusers will set the tone for whatever mood you are going for: Tropical, seductive, romantic, playful, or energizing.

Zoom with Friends & Family

While it's not quite the same as being in a room together, hosting a Zoom-style NYE party has its advantages. You can virtually visit your loved ones all over the world simultaneously, share recipes and cocktails, declare your intentions for 2021 and try out silly backgrounds and filters. Best of all? There's no mess to clean up after.

Light It Up

Dim the lights and spark some joy with scented candles. The flickering effect and soothing smells will instantly create a cozy feeling. Out Hotel Collection candles are available in multiple sizes, so you can decorate with 11-ounce Classic candles or make a big statement with our towering 285-ounce Grandé candles. Choose from 10 enchanting scents.

Pop Open the Bubbly

Whether you're celebrating solo or with friends, add some Champagne to your evening. Champagne is always a good idea, especially on New Year's Eve. This is the night to splurge with your favorite bottle, the one you have been saving all year. Make the evening extra special and pour it in your most delicate stemware, like our classic Coupe glasses.

Watch the Ball Drop

The time-honored tradition of watching the ball drop at Times Square precisely at midnight will continue, just minus the live audience. While it's the first time it won't be open to the public since its inception in 1907, you can still see the Waterford crystal ball drop from home.
