tips for throwing a simple but special NYE at home

When I was a freshman in college (a looong time ago!), I had to have a minor ankle surgery over winter break. While the procedure was minor, it meant I would be laid up for New Year’s Eve.
My bestie took mercy on me and stayed in with me. We dressed up cute, grabbed some snacks and decor, and threw ourselves a totally memorable low-key party. Much to my surprise, what should have been a total downer of a night turned into the best New Year’s Eve I’d ever had.
That was the year I discovered that, for me, low-key was the best way to ring in the year.
This especially holds true today as a mom of three. After the craziness of the Christmas holiday and lots of travel to visit family, the whole family is ready for a relaxed night in.
But, it has to be special.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to throw a good party. The good news is, it doesn’t take much to make your gathering low-key fancy. Especially when you can get everything you need from your local Whole Foods Market.
