In my book, going out on New Year’s Eve is out. I’ve spent too many overpriced, underwhelming nights surrounded by strangers when all I really wanted to do was be at home welcoming in the new year with a champagne toast and friends.
A quieter, more intimate celebration doesn’t mean you have to go without the pomp, glitter and circumstance this holiday is made of. There are tons of great, affordable pieces of decor you can buy on Amazon that’ll get delivered in just a few days to spruce up your at-home gathering.
Here are five pieces of holiday gear I’m purchasing to make my New Year’s Eve at home festive at home on a budget.
