Treats for Your New Year’s

We have some fabulous New Year’s party supplies, but there are a few more ways you can make this year’s celebration a hit. Food and drinks, of course, are ones we love to discuss. So this one goes out to all the foodies out there – we know that a truly great party is nothing without the perfect treats!

First things first, you’ve got to come up with some scrumptious appetizers to satisfy your guests while they wait for midnight. We suggest having a mix of sweet and savory treats. This way, there’s enough variety for those with salty palettes and those with a sweet tooth! For savory, we found that these Herbed Mini Caprese Skewers were not only tasty, but super easy to make. For sweet, these Champagne Cake Balls with a champagne undertone are sure to disappear before you know it! These appetizers are finger-lickin’ good without having to go full-meal for the crowd, and we couldn’t ask for more.

Of course, then there’s the actual champagne. While it’s already a hit on its own, we’ve seen some great ideas for jazzing it up. Take this Peach Bellini, for example – light and refreshing, this drink is perfect to make for larger parties. Combine frozen peaches, peach schnapps, champagne, and ice in a blender and blend until smooth. What could be easier than that? This is everything you’ve ever wanted in a champagne drink and more.

Now if you’re celebrating the countdown at home with family, it’s always important that the kids can participate in the fun too. While toasting to midnight on New Year’s Eve is often associated with bottles and flutes of champagne (like that Peach Bellini!), it is actually a popular tradition in Spain to ring in the new year with a skewer of twelve grapes, one for each month of the year. Adopt this tradition with your family for a kid-friendly and sweet New Year’s Eve treat!

We could keep going, but it’s probably easiest to just link you to our personal Pinterest board. We hope your New Year’s party is a huge success!

How-to: Perfect your New Year’s Party

1. Make a guest list! We’ve all been there. You think you know everybody who is going to be stopping by, only to find out that Ally’s cousin Login will be in town, and he’s really interested in stopping by – and by the way can his football buddies come, too? In situations like this, having as firm a guest list as possible is a lifesaver. Not only will it help you plan the amount of food you’ll have and the way people will get along into the night, it can also let you know exactly what sort of venue is feasible and how many extra people you can accommodate.

2. Send invitations…now! As you know, New Year’s is a big holiday. Sending out your invitations ahead of time will give you the advantage when it comes to getting people to show up. It also allows you to properly plan to throw an awesome party! Foresight in this area is the difference between a rocking shindig full of people who you like the most, and a poorly attended dud where you continually annoy your cats with noisemakers.

3. Serve food that’s easy but filling! You’ll definitely want to serve some food, but a full meal can be daunting for a high volume of guests. Instead, encourage them to have dinner before they come and let them know that you’ll have snacks throughout the night. Serving finger foods like pretzels, sliders, and deviled eggs keeps your guests full while allowing them to have their hands free for drinks and laps free for some serious dancing!

4. Keep it simple! If the party is going to be at your home, paper napkins and plates are perfectly acceptable. This will reduce the risk of anything being broken, not to mention making clean up the next day a much easier experience. Grabbing an all-in-one party kit will make creating the perfect holiday ambiance a breeze and save you a headache. Instead of scrambling around to store after store, contact Amols’ for help! Our kits are a fiesta in a box full of hats, horns, beads, and so much more. Hand out the favors to friends and family, and get ready to make some resolutions that you’ll definitely keep up this year.
