A Chic, Laid-Back, and Loungy New Year’s Eve

A Chic, Laid-Back, and Loungy New Year’s Eve

A Chic, Laid-Back, and Loungy
New Year’s Eve

Instead of chasing the elusive party of the century, turn your living room—or the nestled-in-the-Catskills Airbnb you and a few friends managed to score—into a vibe-y, cozy, festively relaxing lair where you can count down to midnight in style. Chicest-ever champagne flutes? Check. The most gorgeous backgammon set to break out when the cocktails kick in? Yup. Sleek accoutrements for serving killer canapés (or a full-blown feast)? Definitely. Plus, everything else you could ever want to make a special night in feel appropriately extravagant and low-key all at once.

Go grand with cocktails

Whether you’re sipping champagne, fruit-infused fizzy water, or a gingery nonalcoholic aperitif, doing it from drop-dead-gorgeous flutes makes the night way more sparkly.

Stake out the vibe with party games and pillows

Place a few games around the room and people will happily gravitate toward them. These two are meant to be played but are also exquisite enough to qualify as décor: Made of Lucite, the backgammon board is adorned with turquoise evil eyes to ward off bad energy (so good for New Year’s), while the hand-poured, rose-quartz-hued acrylic checkers set is so cool it would look right at home in an art gallery.

There’s something so casually glamorous about a floor strewn with throws and pillows—we love plopping down on them to play the aforementioned party games. These mix beautifully: The first is handwoven by Argentinean craftsmen, and the second is made from the softest mohair-wool blend.

Light the room like a (sexy) set

Think dim, sexy, atmospheric, and flattering—so add more lanterns and candles and turn off anything jarring overhead. This portable battery-operated lantern comes with its own dimmer, casts the perfect glow, works as brilliantly indoors as it does outdoors, and features chic brass hardware. For just-right intensity, light a few flickering candles alongside it—the vagina candle’s rose-geranium scent subtly fills the room.

Make a big-ass dinner to celebrate

Food is our love language and one of the most beautiful ways to celebrate life, one another, and the dawn of a new year. The move: a go-for-broke feast that’s almost completely prepped the night before so that New Year’s Eve is all about ease. Here are the essentials and some other fun flourishes, too.

Whip up anything from duck cassoulet to paella to a next-morning hangover-assuaging French toast casserole with this dream set of Teflon-free ceramic-coated cookware.

Close out the night with incredible bedding

You danced, you feasted, you’re a bit buzzed—it’s time to collapse into bed. These organic sheets are softer than anything, and a weighted blanket approximates the calming effect of deep-touch pressure—this chunky organic cotton knit one is stunning, and lying under it feels like being hugged.
