Times Square and Las Vegas are the best places to celebrate New Year’s Eve, according to the major television networks. But why travel across the country or stand in the frigid cold to ring in the New Year when you can bring the celebration to Scarsdale?
For those wanting to keep tonight a little low-key, invite family, friends and neighbors to Scarsdale for a last-minute gathering.

Of course, no party is complete without a sweet treat. Set up a dessert table and lay out a variety of sweets.

Add sparkle to your New Year’s Eve celebration by visiting Party City on Central Avenue. Pick up New Year's Eve-themed hats, noisemakers, tableware, balloons and banners for a festive, NYE, stay-at-home gathering.

Want to go out, toast at midnight with a room full of folks and dance the last of 2012 away?
