With Covid-19 and its new variants still around, people feel safer holding their intimate gatherings and celebrations at home. Many homeowners did renovations specifically for this. The home is now even more central to people’s lives and not just a place to sleep before rushing off again in the morning.
Home Celebration Ideas
1. Celebrate the holidays any time of the year.
Many families could not get together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Eve because of the pandemic. You can still celebrate any of these holidays with matching decorations after you are all fully vaccinated. You can even put up a Christmas tree in spring and exchange gifts.
2. Have a themed party.
That can be any party that you want. It could be based on your favorite movie, TV show, or Halloween. Just make sure that everyone knows about it ahead of time, so they can dress accordingly.
3. Have a karaoke party.
If you love to sing, this is the perfect party for you. Have everyone dress as their favorite singer. Karaoke is always more fun when it’s themed.
4. Have a talent show.
Ask everyone to prepare any performance, from singing to dancing or magic tricks. People can also perform in twos or threes.
5. Make a DIY photo booth.
Capture memories with your friends and family. Prepare different backdrops and props. You can make it as simple or complex as you want.

Get a professional to build a robust fire pit in your yard. You need this to ensure that your bonfire is safe and will not be a fire hazard. Prepare marshmallows and hotdogs for roasting.

That can be just as fun in your backyard. Set up tents and sleep outside. Turn off all the house lights to make stargazing more enchanting. Identify as many constellations as you can.
