Just because we have to maintain social distancing does not mean you have to be all locked up. We have the perfect plan to keep you safe while you enjoy a perfect night out. For starters, you need to select the place and make reservations way ahead of time. Be it a restaurant, bar, or club; you have to make sure the place won’t be crowded and follow the social distancing norms. Choose the nearest destination from your home and arrange for a cab or car much before the event.

2. Movie Marathon

There is a difference between binge-watching on your own and binge-watching with your favorite people. Everything is more exciting when there is a celebration going on! Make sure you take a poll of all the movies you want to watch and create a beautiful ambiance with lights (preferably on the terrace). You can also arrange a potluck and have all your favorite snacks to munch while you welcome the New Year.

3. Redesign The Living Space
