Hosting a Digital New Year’s Eve
As we leave 2020 and welcome 2021, many people like to usher in the new year with an NYE bash! Due to recent events, New Year’s Eve celebrations are sure to be different this year. For physical distance purposes, thousands of people are hosting virtual New Year’s Eve parties.
If you’ve never hosted a zoom party before then, you may be nervous as to how it works. Yescomusa is here to help you yet again with our quick and easy guide to hosting the perfect virtual New Year’s Eve Party!
Get in Sync
Everyone knows that the last 10 seconds of the year is the most important as we collectively count down in anticipation. While large gatherings will not be happening this year, it is still essential to spend time with our families and loved ones. When planning your virtual NYE party, be courteous and respectful of other’s schedules.
Structure your virtual event around the agendas of others, so there is little dead time at your party. It will also help to ensure that everyone is following the same clock so that you don’t miss a second in the traditional group count down.
Set Up Festive Decorations
You may not want to set up a ton of decorations this year, but since we are doing it virtually, you’ll only have to decorate a small corner of your home. Consider setting up a high-quality green screen to change the mood of your entire party quickly. Switch up from various colors to extreme environments such as outer space or deep in the ocean.
Green screens are easy to set up, dismantle, and store when it is not in use. 2020 began the era of Zoom parties, and in 2021 a green screen will be more critical than ever! Forget about cleaning your home or decorating when a green screen can bring you wherever you desire.
There is nothing more boring than a stale moment at a party. Keep the celebration exciting by planning back to back activities! Keep the extra talking topics on hand, in case everyone gets tongue-tied or shy. Some other activities may include:
Planning a dinner party. We may not be in the same room, but everyone loves to eat! Send out simple and easy recipes beforehand so that everyone is on the same page and has time to gather ingredients. Get excited as every dish turns out differently, and you can show your friends and family what you’ve made!
Champagne Tasting. Virtual wine tastings have become very popular in 2020, so it is only natural to crack open a bottle of bubbly for your NYE party! Either gift or list some champagnes you would like to try and share with your guests!
Game Night. Ran out of things to talk about? Why not host a virtual zoom game? While you can not expect everyone to purchase a board game, you can provide a more extensive visual tool to hold everyone’s attention. A customizable WinSpin Prize Wheel board is the perfect optical game that can be adjusted to fit the ages and interests of your audience.
