Ready to ring in 2018 with friends, family and loved ones? If you’re feeling pressure to have the best New Year’s Eve ever, but aren’t much of a party lover, there are plenty of creative ways to celebrate in style this January 31st. These outside-the-box ideas are an inexpensive way to have fun, be social and get silly with your closest pals.

Host a Game Night

Are your clubbing days over? Not interested in a dance-til-you-drop marathon? You’re not alone. Instead, why not invite your favorite friends over for an evening of friendly yet spirited competition. Nothing like a rousing game of Pictionary, Cranium, Trivial Pursuit or Cards Against Humanity to get people laughing and keeping your get-together lively.

Throw a Karaoke Party

These days you don’t need to rent pricey equipment to enjoy a night of karaoke madness. All you need is a microphone, decent speakers and the Internet. Some sites boast more than 120,000 songs, let you record your favorite renditions and earn a fan base. Sing your heart out to the latest chart toppers or holiday classics all in the comfort of your own home.

Host a Fancy Dinner Party

Unleash your inner Julia Childs by throwing a no-holds-barred dinner party on New Year’s Eve. Get creative with new recipes, dazzle your guests with delicious appetizers as you put on your chef’s hat and make a feast that will be remembered.

Enjoy a Movie Marathon

Make a giant bowl of popcorn, serve up your best cinema treats and get cozy with your favorite line up of movies. This is a great opportunity to re-watch popular flicks like the Matrix series, Lord of the Rings trilogy or older classics.

Reconnect with Loved Ones Online

This is the perfect chance to reconnect with an old pal or family member that is all alone on New Year’s Eve. Catch up using FaceTime or Skype, and enjoy a holiday champagne cheers from your living room.

Celebrate NYE safely in California

If you absolutely have to get behind the wheel, keep in mind that New Year’s Eve is one of the most dangerous nights for being on Los Angeles roads (or anywhere in the country). If you plan on enjoying a cocktail or glass of champagne, please use a designated driver, car-sharing service or taxi, and if you’re the chosen chauffer, we encourage you to be extra alert for drunk drivers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that New Year’s Eve and January 1 has the highest rate of vehicle crashes in the calendar year.

If you are injured or lose a loved one in a DUI crash, Ellis Injury Law offers aggressive legal assistance in California. Helping drunk driving victims and their families for more than 25 years, our attorneys have the experience to win the most challenging personal injury and wrongful death cases.
