The biggest evening of the year is almost here. While going out to ring in the New Year is a popular trend, Page Stroud of Sociably Yours is here to show you how host a New Year’s Eve Party at Home with the perfect pajama party.

Cozy, cocktails and cupcakes are just a few of our favorite ingredients to a popping party at home.

Cozy Pajama Party
The main objective is the ring in the New Year. Staying up late to socialize, should require your most comfy pair of pajamas. Invite guests to wear their best bed wear to this party. Don’t worry, we will bring in the glitz and glam with our decor.

Cupcake Fondue

Bring in the New Year with a new party favorite. Take unfrosted cupcakes to the next level. Use cupcake tins to place the cupcake toppings like icing, sprinkles, chocolate chips. Place cupcakes on skewers to make the dipping easier (for smaller children, use plastic forks for better handling). Each guests can dip their unfrosted cupcake anyway they choose, creating their own masterpiece to be enjoyed at midnight!
