Myka Javier

Bye, bye 2020! Knowz welcomes the New Year 2021 with these at-home New Year’s Eve ideas to make your celebration safe and fun!


We’re only days away from ringing the New Year 2021!

Given how 2020 sucked, we know we’re all so excited to leave it all behind! But before we do, it’s still essential to remain vigilant while we’re in the midst of a pandemic. That means, we’ll have to celebrate the New Year safely at home to maintain social distancing protocols. Don’t worry though, that doesn’t mean our celebrations can’t be festive and meaningful as years before! 

Holidays are more important than ever this 2020. We’ve learned how to adapt to technologies by working remotely, how to practice safety protocols, and how to create new traditions with Halloween and Thanksgiving. This New Year is no exception! So what better way to reflect and reset than on the last day of the year? 

We’ve come up with simple celebratory ideas on how to make your New Year’s Eve rock!

Decorate for New Year 2021


What better way to ring in the new year than to get extra festive with glittery decorations? Mix hues of gold, silver, black, copper, and rose gold for the perfect sparkle! Then create the perfect festive backdrop for your guests or for your Zoom celebration. Remember, there’s no such thing as over the top with big balloons and festive props!

Get dolled up


We’ve all been wearing our sweats and PJs as we stay at home this year. Yup, don’t deny it. This New Year’s Eve, it’s time to change out of your PJs and get dressed up! Don your favorite fancy dress or clothes, get your hair done, or shave off your beard! It’s good to feel and look great to say hello to 2021!

Set up a Champagne bar


Why mix your own cocktail (you can if you want to) when you can set up a pour-it-yourself Champagne bar? You wouldn’t have to worry about refills and it’ll keep the drinks flowing for the rest of the evening. Just make sure to keep the hangover at bay by serving a few appetizers that deliciously pair well with champagne.
