In the grand ‘staying in’ versus ‘going out’ debate, I am always surprised by the lack of compromise between the two types of New Year’s Eve celebrations. As a woman who likes to have my cake and eat it, when Anthropologie asked me what kind of NYE I’d be having, a quick browse of their cosy accessories did all the work for me: I’ll be staying in, but forgoing the cliched habit of falling asleep in front of the television after one too many glasses of sparkles for something a little more special.
Dear readers, this is the year to stay in and throw yourself a New Year’s Party (no skyscraper heels or overpriced cocktails allowed). Instead of the ‘night out’ norm, invite a few of your nearest and dearest for a luxury night in and cater your space with simple, beautiful decorations; throws, balloons, candles, slippers, robes and champagne, natch.
In my opinion, no party or New Year’s event can hold a candle to an intimate celebration away from pre-booked taxi chaos and a sea of sloshed strangers.
If you’re on the same wavelength, you’ll be happy to hear that – in collaboration with this post – Anthropologie have provided me with a £50 gift card to give away to one lucky reader!
