How We Celebrate New Year's Eve If You Stay Home

How We Celebrate New Year's Eve If You Stay Home

Whether you're recovering from the holiday season's exhaustion or prefer to avoid venturing out on a cold night in uncertain times, New Year's Eve can be memorable in your own home with proper planning. It's safe, cozy, and festive without being overly so. Enter host mode and focus on winning details to distinguish this joyous holiday from another night spent in.

Virtual Parties

Virtual parties are a well-known way to socialize because they combine the benefits of connecting with friends and family despite geographical limitations with the convenience and comfort of being at home. When all of the necessary party elements are included, such as a thoughtful guest list, food, and entertainment, a pre-planned Zoom event can replicate the energy of an in-person party. Virtual parties are also gentler on the carpet and require less cleanup.

Plan The Event

Begin planning your New Year's Eve event in the same way you would a regular party. Send out custom snail mail or virtual invites, offer your guests drink recipes and food options ahead of time so they can match your offerings, and, of course, don't forget to address the dress code. If you enjoy dressing up, request a black tie. Make it a jammies night if you want to go full-on comfort mode. Create a theme, such as black and white.

Find Inspiration In Social Events

Get ideas from what's hot in social events right now. Champagne is always welcome on New Year's Eve, and it adds an unexpected element to the list of drinks that appeal to current tastes. Send cocktail recipes along with the invitation so you can sip glasses of the same beverage as the virtual guests on the screen.

Send party favors to your guests ahead of time to keep your decor consistent. Purchase our New Year's collection for a curated selection of gourmet delicacies and visually appealing centerpieces.

Create a Decor

 

We understand; we've spent so much time at home that crossing the state line becomes an event. Decorate for the holiday to make your home feel like a party venue. Arrange mason jar lights on a mantle, as a table centerpiece, or on a shelf. In each room, illuminate a collection of candles. Allow a slew of black and gold balloons to dangle from the ceiling. And, of course, a stunning flower arrangement, which always signals an elegant affair, is a must.

Includes Activities

Additional enjoyable party activities include games, movie marathons, dancing, and karaoke. Examine previous New Year's Eve celebrations and recreate the best moments. While playing your favorite song, serve a memorable midnight cocktail with a whimsical New Year's Eve accessory. Include a variety of entertainment with your virtual party mates to build excitement for the celebration.

Delicious Food

Because New Year's Eve falls at the end of a busy social month, preparing a lavish meal is not the best activity to include in the event's planning. What exactly is a complete solution? Order. Even better, have it delivered directly to your home, giving you more time to plan the pleasant details. Choose from a variety of delectable dishes, including lobster pie, caramelized onion triple cheese quiche, beef lasagna, and Italian sausages. Without any effort, the cake trays, chocolate towers, and fruit bouquets are just as stunning.

  Spend Outdoor

Set up your outdoor space with mood-enhancing lights and candles to create a warm and cozy outdoor oasis. As midnight approaches, wrap yourself in warm blankets and make your way to the outdoor party area, which is ideal for cracking open a bottle of champagne, making noise, and firing. Although the setting is different from New Year's Eve, it has the potential to be remembered as the main memory of a star show with natural light.

 



A New Year's Eve party at home, whether you're wearing your favorite slippers or the most comfortable slippers, could be the best way to start the new year.

 

Poinsettias Christmas Plant
Dec 15, 2021

Poinsettias Christmas Plant

The Poinsettia plant's bright red bracts have long been associated with Christmas; in fact, it's more commonly known as "The Christmas Plant" than by its botanical name, euphorbia pulcherrima. Most people recognize this plant because it is commonly used as a decorative accent during the holiday season, but they are unaware of its origins or how it came to be associated with Christmas. The following are some interesting facts about the plant that most people don't know about.

Poinsettias in the Wild

 

 

Poinsettias are native to Mexico's southernmost tip, and their name is derived from Joel Roberts Poinsett, a 19th century amateur botanist and the first United States Ambassador to Mexico. Poinsett first documented them in 1828 and brought some back to his South Carolina greenhouse. He gave one of the plants to a botanist friend, John Bertram, who began commercially propagating them as cut flowers. It wasn't until the next century, however, that they became known as a classic holiday fixture, and that was because Paul Ecke Jr. sent potted Poinsettia plants to Hollywood TV studios as seasonal gifts. They appeared on shows like Bob Hope's Christmas specials and The Tonight Show, and a tradition was born.

Poinsettias of Legend

 

 

According to a Mexican legend, a small girl was on her way to visit the baby Jesus and didn't have a gift to bring, so she grabbed a small handful of roadside weeds. When she knelt before him at the altar and held out her offering, the weeds bloomed into vibrant red flowers, and everyone in the room thought they'd witnessed a miracle.

Poinsettias Aren't Poisonous

 

 

Poinsettias, contrary to popular belief, are not poisonous. According to studies, an average-sized child or pet would have to consume more than 500 Poinsettia leaves to experience any negative effects such as nausea or vomiting. Another common misconception is that their bright red color is due to flowers; however, these are bracts, which are a type of leaf. Poinsettias are also available in white and pink.

Same Day Delivery Gifts

Same Day Delivery Gifts

One of the most amazing aspects of the many different ways that gifts can be given is that you can have these incredible gestures sent to those you care about whenever you want. While there is still something appealing about hand-delivering your own gifts, you can also have them delivered on your behalf.


While this provides a sense of logistical convenience, it can also come in handy in an emergency. Consider how many times you've forgotten important dates and occasions, or how many times you've needed to send a gift right away. Here are some examples of gifts that you can send with same-day delivery:

Chocolates

While there are some people who aren't fond of chocolates, in most cases, these sweet treats are hard to go wrong with. The beauty of sending chocolates as a gift rather than buying them in a store is the way they are packaged for your lucky recipient. The pleasure derived from eating the chocolates is one thing, but when the presentation is excellent, the gesture becomes even more enjoyable.

A chocolate arrangement requires little planning, which is why you can send one to your lucky gift recipient on the spur of the moment. Maybe you forgot about Valentine's Day, and now you're trying to figure out how to make it up to your partner. By personalizing a chocolate arrangement, you can stand out from the crowd while also avoiding the embarrassment of being the one who forgot the special occasion.

Flowers

 

 

You could also send a flower bouquet as an alternative. Based on the occasion, there is a long list of situations in which flowers are best suited as same-day delivery gifts. Thankfully, arranging and sending one-of-a-kind flower bouquets to those who matter to you has never been easier. It's always a good idea to look up the meanings of different flower types and colors so you can send the most appropriate arrangement.

Also, keep in mind that florists are the people you'll be dealing with when making such arrangements. This means you'll be able to get helpful advice on how to make sure your lovely gifts are perfect. Sending flowers is a time-honored tradition that is as beautiful as it is timeless.

Fruit Basket

 

 

It's difficult to understand why more people don't take advantage of the ability to send fruit baskets as gifts, given how simple they are to put together and send. Many healthy and nutritious meals are available, but people are turned off by their unpleasant flavors. Fruits, on the other hand, do not usually fall into this category because they are both nutritious and delicious. Everyone has their favorite fruits, which is where a delectable fruit basket arrangement comes in handy.

Make sure you know your gift recipient's favorite fruits so you can hit it out of the park with this one. After that, it's just a matter of picking the fruits and having the assortment delivered. Of course, the presentation is merely for the purpose of enhancing the nutritional experience.

Cakes

Another sweet treat that you can provide with the ease of same-day delivery is this. The use of cakes in the celebration of various events is a long-standing custom. Birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries are just a few of the special occasions when delicious cake is required. This pastry's adaptability is one of the reasons it works so well in so many situations.

Not only can the cake be personalized on the surface with text, pictures, or 3-D arrangements, but the cake's type and flavor can also be tailored to the recipient. There are many different types and flavors of cake that appeal to different people in different ways. This is another gift option that necessitates paying close attention to the person you are purchasing it for. It's incredible to feel as if someone went above and beyond for you based on your wants and needs, and this is the kind of feeling you can give someone when you customize a cake and get it just right.

Wine

 

 

The last item on the list is a wine basket, which is yet another same-day delivery gift that requires personalization. Wines come in a wide variety of flavors, and it's likely that one person will find some of them irresistible while others will be unpalatable. Getting things wrong is a major issue here, as you risk someone not being able to enjoy your gesture as much as you would like.

The good news is that there is something for everyone in this pool of variety, so it shouldn't be too difficult if you pay attention. Even if your gift recipient isn't a drinker, there are a variety of sparkling wine options to consider as you put together your collection.

Conclusion

You may want a donation to be delivered on the same day that you order for many different reasons. Actually, this may be more necessary than desired, depending on the situation. It's just a generous gesture sometimes. But in other situations, the only thing between you and tremendous disappointment is that you have a gift sent that same day it is ordered.

Above are five of the great options you can consider when you want to send such donations. Please note that most require personal taste consideration.
