Celebrate New Years Eve with a photo shoot at home

If you’re not up for leaving the house this New Years Eve, I have the perfect activity for you to do at home. A New Years Eve Celebration photo shoot! You can start anytime of the day and – best of all – you will come away with a ton of cute photos of baby to remember the day.A baby boy is dressed up in New Years Eve celebration party props

There are lots of inexpensive props you can buy for less than $5 at Walmart, Dollarama and Party City at locations around Durham. No need to stay up late – sleep is precious for both mom and baby, even if it is New Years Eve! Some of the best stuff I’ve been able to find has been at Party City. This includes glittery mini top hats ($2.49), New Years Eve princess tiaras ($3.49) and plastic necklaces in various colours ($0.99).

Cost: Approximately $10. New Years Eve party props are cheap and you’d only need a few for a great photo.
