New Year's Eve for family reasons
New Year's scenarios
Big secret for any company
Acquaintances and colleagues plan to swim on a ship on New Year's Eve, dance around a palm tree, climb a high mountain. And you imagine a bored olivier and all the same faces on TV and are already starting to miss. But there are circumstances when it is simply impossible to arrange something grandiose: small children, embarrassment in funds, a strict work schedule, and a lot of things! But this does not mean at all that you yourself will not be able to arrange a holiday for yourself that will be remembered for a long time and which you will talk about with sincere and stormy enthusiasm.
The main secret of a successful New Year's meeting in the approach: to arrange a holiday not as usual, but as you want. But sometimes it’s hard for us to understand exactly what we want. In this case, you need to ask yourself specific questions: who do you want to see next to the New Year? What mood do you want to catch on a festive night? What do you want to get as a result? With the answers to these questions, coming up with a holiday will be much easier.
Everything is possible!
And if the desires do not coincide with the possibilities? For example, you want to lie in the sun, but the authorities will definitely not set aside a week. Arrange the beach at home! Go to the solarium and pool on New Year's Eve, and invite friends to the Hawaiian party with fiery music, exotic fruits and beach suits on the night itself! What if the circumstances are such that you are limited not only by time, but also constrained by means? Here are a few options for celebrating the New Year in different life situations and tips for those who want to turn a conservative feast into a memorable holiday.
Theater, restaurant and magic - at home
SITUATION: Small children in the family
I do not want to leave offspring with grandmothers and nannies or not. Taking all night to an unfamiliar, noisy, smoky place is also unpleasant. You just have to dance around the Christmas tree, meet the tipsy Santa Claus, put the tired children to bed, sit for another hour and go to the side.
Of course, if you approach the children's part formally, it will not cause anything but boredom. But you can all put together a New Year’s play and make a film based on it. And the next day, invite friends-relatives and together look at the resulting masterpiece. If you spend half an hour every evening a month before the New Year preparing for the New Year’s performance (devising a script for the performance, making costumes and decorations from improvised means, rehearsing), the holiday will become even more desirable for you and for the children. You can invite you to participate in your action close friends with children, just do not overdo it: two or three families are quite enough. If you like to walk, have a holiday on the street: in the forest, park, in the playground! Think relay races, outdoor and role-playing games. Having run in the fresh air, children quickly and soundly fall asleep, and adults can continue the celebration. If you want a festive dinner to be original, arrange a restaurant at home! Let the men set the table, light candles, throw a towel over his hand, open the wine, bring in festive dishes. After the New Year's dinner, play the fortune-telling box. Put different objects in the box: small candles, books, bottles, Christmas toys, souvenir figurines, fruits
Let each one in turn take out one item from the box, and all the other guests (or one authorized person) assume that this could mean. Humor and kindness to each other in this game are welcome.
For all generations of family and friends
SITUATION: The family decided to celebrate New Year in full
Grandmothers, parents, adults and young children. Everyone loves each other, but interests, of course, are different. How to keep the family tradition and make everyone interested?
Does your New Year always start with a meal? So arrange the Meal of Generations. Let each meal change - appetizers, hot and dessert - be from different generations of your family. It is difficult to imagine a table where Olivier salad, Caesar and chips are adjacent, but it is important to assess the ingenuity of each generation and comment on the neighborhood of incompatible dishes with humor. There is a hunter for each of them! After the feast, commit sabotage: turn off the TV. Instead of watching New Year’s TV shows, play around. New Year is a childhood, a miracle and a dream come true. And even the most adults - serious, respectable people - on New Year's Eve turn into joyful, creative children. There is a simple but very funny game: one of the players goes into a separate room, and everyone else comes up with an image for him that does not suit him at all. For example, the image of a sailor, a life-burner, is a respectable bank employee. You need to guess your anti-image from everything that is in the house, together to make a costume for the hero. Closer to the morning for the "intergenerational" New Year, it is very good to go for a walk on the street. For young people, this is an opportunity to make noise, throw out unspent forces, shout, firecrackers, sing. And for young children and the elderly - the opportunity to calmly walk and go to bed.
Transition from old to new
SITUATION: Everything has already been
You celebrated the New Year in the country, and in the restaurant, and at a party, and at home, and in the bath, and in bowling. And you already just don't know how You can meet him so that you like and remember. The proposed option is suitable for an adult company, for youth, and for families with children of different ages.
Have a real rite of passage! The space in which the celebration should take place (apartment, cottage, rented room in the hotel), divide into two parts: the part “before” (old) and part “after” (new). In the “before” part, everything should be extremely traditional: a festive table with olivier salad, sprats and Soviet champagne, a tree with garlands and balls, “Irony of Fate” on TV. Let the guests help fill up salads, finish the serving, and the hostess at this time ironing the dress. Finally, the guests sit down at the table and start seeing off the outgoing year. But as soon as midnight arrives, everyone makes the transition to the future. Part “after” until midnight is fenced off with a sintepon wall. Making such a wall is easy. It is enough to throw the canvas from synthetic winterizer over the crossbar, for this the simplest curtain rod for curtains is suitable. At midnight, guests break through a white soft curtain and find themselves in a new space where everything is different. A synthetic winterizer can also help out here - if you lay it on the floor, you will feel like you are on a cloud. Everything here needs to be done differently than in the traditional part. To design a Christmas tree from foil, leave only candles out of lighting, sit on the floor. And no table, no TV.
