Can't wait to celebrate New Year 2020 in style? Well, forget it! This year the party will be very different from last year. The coronavirus pandemic has ended all the fabulous celebrations we are used to. But as always, we try to look at things on the bright side. You might be wondering what we're talking about? So, without further ado, we'll answer your question. The end of the year is very near and it is finally time to decide what to do on December 31 as a couple. In this article, you will convince yourself that fun is possible even if there are only two of you. See how!
What to do on December 31, 2020 as a couple?
Instead of going to a restaurant or going on vacation, many of us will settle down for a cozy evening on the sofa. And instead of spending New Years Eve with dozens of friends, this year's guest list will be limited to the people we live with. But this unusual situation doesn't mean it can't be as festive and meaningful as in previous years. We have already told you about the New Year's Eve party as a couple, giving you various suggestions on how to make it really enjoyable, but this year requires innovative decisions. With the right planning, you can throw an amazing New Years party at your home. Grab a bottle of your favorite champagne and get ready for a festive quarantine with our couple activity ideas.
How to create a festive atmosphere in your home?
Although parties with family and friends are not yet banned, many people prefer to take preventative measures and just stay at home with their lover. We agree that we must be responsible and for this reason, we present our ideas to you to create a festive atmosphere in your home:
Dress up for the party
Who says you can't put on your favorite dress or an elegant costume for a party at home! So, the New Year outfit is essential to put you on your 31st. Choose a festive nail decoration, add some jewelry and do not forget the glitter. They are never too many when it comes to the New Year's Eve party.
Prepare some cocktails
Champagne is compulsory. We all love it! But a few fabulous cocktails will add that extra touch of glam to the table. Try our recipes for gin and tonic or bet on the Bloody Mary cocktail which is ideal for winter.
Don't forget the decoration
Prepare a New Year table decoration and complete the atmosphere with a few more festive items such as balloons, confetti, garlands and of course sparklers! Another idea that you can achieve is to cut out or buy a photobooth kit to make unique and unforgettable photos.
Music - the most important element
Music is the finishing touch you need to spend the December 31st party as a couple. And as sung in Frank Sinatra's famous song “Let it snow” all that's left is snow falling in big wonderful flakes. What a romantic!
"And since we have nowhere to go, The snow can fall well, fall well"

2. Spend the night with board games
Board games are an ideal way to spend the festive evening with a good red wine or with cocktails. We promise you hours of fun with the following list:
- Travel by thought through different countries or share memories by playing “The Railroad Adventurers”.
- Another strategic board game is "Carcassonne". Super interactive, it is intended for beginners as well as experienced players.
- "The Settlers of Catania" aims to build a civilization. Collect resources and find a strategy to earn points and prevent your sweetheart from winning.
- “Dixit” is a card game that tells a story in pictures. You have to be smart and creative to describe them and to guess them.

3. A movie night is always a good idea
Bet on thematic films like "Happy New Year" or "Phantom Thread". If you never have time to watch TV shows, now is a great time to do so. Subscribe for Netflix and spend the whole night of December 31st with a bucket of popcorn!
4. Are you a fan of video games?
Finally, you have time to play video games as a couple! Grab your favorites, prepare a cheese board, crack open a bottle of wine, and sit back on the sofa for a few hours of adventure.
