We love a New Year’s Eve celebration on-the-go… especially when it’s just as much fun in your own backyard!

We’re dubbing 2018 the Year of Adventure at (cool) progeny. What better way to ring it in with a glamping-themed soiree?

Skip the meal party prep and order from Eddie’s of Roland Park (we’ve included their menu!). Style your set-up with things from around the house (or visit Becket Hitch, like we did!). The most important party styling ingredient for glamping? PILLOWS. And cozy blankets. Lots of cozy blankets.

Maybe you’re wondering what will keep the kiddos busy in your own backyard? Crank up your favorite tunes, bundle up and kick back with old school board games. Warm-up with some cocoa and toast a s’more or two.

Best part? The whole celebration can take place as the sun sets. Which means the kiddos are tucked into bed well before the ball drops.

A fun way to celebrate with your family! Or invite friends and make a night of it!

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy, awesome new year of adventures.
