New Year's Eve: A Case For Staying In
Comfort and warmth with a side of sparkle – the case for opting out of traditional festivities this New Year’s Eve.
The most overrated night of the year for many party-goers, this New Year’s Eve offers a moment of calm and a space to recalibrate. Close-knit company and all-out ambience will be key: gathering loved ones near, lighting candles, listening to music, wearing luxurious loungewear, and eating and drinking delicious things are all top of the menu. So join us in raising a glass, and say cheers to opting out – as our own Senior Digital Marketing Manager Emily Joseph gives us the low-down on her guide for a fuss-free New Year’s celebration at home.
Staying in means preparing for the new year with a clear mind and in comfortable settings. Comfy PJs, a nice glass of bubbly and a cheers at midnight with my boyfriend or family.
To go into the new year, I’ll be cooking for my boyfriend and I – we’ll be enjoying a glass of champagne at midnight together while setting our intentions for a happy and prosperous New Year.
Liberty Tip: Create a tablescape to remember with settings and ornamentation to reflect the mood – New Year’s calls for low light and plenty of lit tapers, all the better to glimmer through the champagne glasses.
Home is super comfy and warm with lit candles, my favourite being Bohemia by Byredo. The smell is super fresh and puts me in good spirits – perfect for staying in and preparing for 2022.
Liberty tip: Out with the old, in with the new – as an after-dinner ritual, consider writing your reflections on the past year and wishes for the one to come, then (safely) burning the paper on a favourite candle.
The Lounge Act
Liberty pyjamas are the best for the perfect night in because not only are they comfortable, but they’re so chic – the best of both worlds! I love to wear my full set with matching robe, to feel extra special.
Liberty tip: Start the New Year as you mean to go on, by waking into 2022 in the most beautiful silk Liberty sleepwear – that way, you’ll already be dressed for brunch.
