New Years Party Must Haves

Every December, everyone looks forward to their favorite New Year's customs. For some of us, this entails having a festive New Year's Eve bash with all our closest friends. These New Year's Eve party ideas can help you make the evening one to remember, whether you're planning a low-key New Year's Eve dinner, a New Year's movie on the sofa, or an over-the-top extravaganza. And you're not alone if this is your first time throwing a New Year's party.  Get inspired from these simple tips and it’ll be a great success!

First, lets decide what to serve for drinks! And don’t worry, I’ve got options for mocktails too!

Set the New Year on fire with a delicious, tangy cocktail, inspired by

Muddle lime juice with simple syrup and mint leaves, then top with scotch and a smidgeon of Campari. Even if you stop there, that's a terrific drink, but adding a lime shell packed with sugar and Bacard 151 rum that's then set aflame takes it to the next level.

 It's wonderful to have an alcohol-free drink choice so everyone can welcome the new year with the rest of the party! If you've never experienced grenadine, it's a simple fruit syrup that provides a splash of flavor to a variety of cocktails. It will sink to the bottom and create a lovely crimson layer in the glass if you pour it in slowly. All you need is:

  • orange juice
  • sugar free lemonade
  • grenadine
  • orange slices or other fruit to serve


 Make a muddle, swirl it up, and take a taste! For mojitos and other fun cocktails and beverages, these straws are ideal. Each box comprises six different colored straws, ideal for distinguishing your glass from everyone else's. The bottom of the glass has a built-in muddler, so you don't have to worry about extra cocktail accessories. Make your own beverages and enjoy them with these two-in-one muddler straws. As an environmentally beneficial alternative to regular straws, it may be washed and reused multiple times.

Okay, the cocktails are the main attraction, but the appetizers are a must-have. Delicious New Year's Eve appetizers, snacks, and finger foods are required for a good NYE drink. Make sure there's enough of food for everyone to snack on as they assemble to ring in the New Year. For a New Year’s party you definingly want to keep it finger food friendly!

Here’s a list of my top 3 choices for tasty new year’s treats!

1. Barbeque Meatballs

These BBQ Party Meatballs are not only simple to prepare, but they can also be prepared ahead of time and frozen for later use. This recipe for cocktail meatballs makes party and holiday preparations a snap. Make these delectable beef meatballs and serve them with toothpicks to keep your guests occupied for hours!

We baked these barbeque meatballs before tossing them in a sweet and spicy sauce. You can also keep these meatballs warm in a crock pot for a few hours throughout your party after you've finished cooking them. These cocktail meatballs are truly ideal for a get-together.



2. Bacon Wrapped Tater-Tots

Bacon-wrapped Tater Tots are a must-try appetizer for any get-together. These SWEET & SPICY BACON WRAPPED TATER TOTS should be made in treble batches because they're always gone in seconds! This quick bacon wrapped appetizer is a classic for the holidays thanks to the spices and a hint of sweetness. Tater Tots have never tasted so good. SO ENTERTAINING!


3.Sausage Cream Cheese

This party dip simply requires three ingredients! There's an optional fourth ingredient, and you can always add more if you like.

2 pounds breakfast sausage (I prefer Jimmy Dean's, but any brand will suffice). Half ordinary and half hot/spicy is a good mix. Depending on your preferences, you could use all spicy or all ordinary ingredients.

creme fraiche: This dip is incredibly creamy thanks to the cream cheese! If you want, Velveeta might be used instead.

Rotel: Rotel tomatoes give this cheesy dip just the right amount of flavor and heat!

Lime Juice: This is an optional ingredient, however it is highly recommended. A spritz of lime juice helps to bring the flavors together.
