This past year was a wild ride, but there are plenty of good things on the horizon — and that’s worth celebrating. When it comes to New Year’s Eve, there’s no better way to kick off another trip around the sun than by throwing an awesome party — but if you’re going to celebrate this year, just make sure you’re doing so responsibly. We know it’s hard around the holidays, which are normally a time filled with parties and family festivities, but it’s important to follow the CDC’s holiday event safety guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19, especially as the Omicron variant is on the rise.

Of course, we’ve also included some photo wall ideas, because you’ll want to show off your best look (don’t forget the perfect New Year’s Eve Instagram caption!)
