Looking for ideas for celebrating New Year’s Eve with the little ones? We asked influencers to share how they’re seeing in the new year with their families this year. Read on for ideas for your own celebrations. Sparkly outfit optional…
How do you plan to celebrate this NYE?
‘We’ll be visiting my sister-in-law in Scotland (an 8-hour drive!) to spend time with her and my two nephews. It’s my brother-in-law’s birthday on New Year’s Eve so there’ll be lots of party games, and good party food of course!’ @youmeandpea
‘This New Years Eve will be my first one with Nya, as she was born in March, so I plan to stay in, at home, with family. @nyarae.rr
‘I usually put on a buffet for us all. We try to stay up until midnight - although we haven’t made it for the last few years!’ @oursmallterrace
How will you be dressing up your little one for New Years Eve?
“Christmas Eve is one of our favourite days (apart from the big day of course!) As a family we visit Santa in the day and go to the pantomime in the afternoon at the theatre- it’s just magical!
Our tradition is to put out a carrot for Rudolph, a cake and milk for Santa, and then we go outside and sprinkle magic glitter, all in our Christmas pyjamas from the Christmas Eve box.
And then, before we go to bed, we read a beautiful Christmas book together in front of the fire…all ready for Father Christmas to arrive” - @downwiththewelbourns
‘Nya will more than likely be wearing a cute little dress or outfit. I try to match her to the same colours I’m wearing!’ @nyarae.rr
‘Any excuse to get Max a gorgeous little outfit! Maybe something smart but comfy for him? We will have to see…’ @thehoppyhome
‘The new pyjamas they got for Christmas, for sure’ @theboormanjourney_
‘Patrick will probably be wearing something festive - maybe a Christmas knit for New Year’s Day and a cute little shirt and leggings for New Year’s Eve!’ @youmeandpea
‘I usually plan to dress the little ones up quite smart for our New Year’s Day meal but more than likely they’ll end up in their pyjamas!’ @oursmallterrace
What’s your New Year’s Day family tradition?
‘Our New Year’s Day tradition is a walk along the sea front as a family, enjoying fresh fish and chips.’ @theboormanjourney_
‘My mum, my sister and I usually go out for afternoon tea on New Year’s Day so Nya will be coming with us for that too.’ @nyarae.rr
‘In the past we used to go to the cinema every New Year’s Day, however this year I think it will be all about family, food and a nice walk.’ @thehoppyhome
‘We always have a family sit-down roast dinner, all together.’ @oursmallterrace
‘We love a walk on the beach on New Year’s Day, and it’ll be even more special this year with Patrick walking!’ @youmeandpea
