For lots of mums, pre-kids New Year’s Eve traditions included lots of champagne and not a lot of shut-eye. But just because you now have little ones, doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate. Sometimes the best fun can be had from the comfort of your own home. Invite some friends or family over, put the kids to bed early and spruce up the house with glittery decorations and balloons. We’ve curated a fun New Year’s Eve Playlist for you to listen to and we’ve got some easy food ideas, too. Nothing says “hello New Year” like a bottle of bubbly and nibbles.
Turn up the music, pop some treats in the oven and decorate the house. It’s been a big year and you deserve it.
