Throw the Easiest New Year’s Eve Party Ever

New Year Playing Cards

Plan Games

  • Make light of New Year’s resolutions by turning them into a guessing game. Give partygoers cards (download the New Year Playing Cards) and have guests finish the sentences with hopeful wishes―or tongue-in-cheek witticisms. Gather the cards, read them aloud randomly, then let the gang try to figure out who wrote what.
  • Print cards with these fill-in-the-blanks: “The bad habit I want to kick this year is ―――.” “The good deed I want to do this year is ―――.” “The person I want to be more like this year is ―――.” “The skill I want to learn this year is ―――.”

New Year's Party snacks

Pick Up the Provisions

  • Snacks: Let guests nibble on hearty little bites, as well as tidbits from the deli department for ease of preparation.
  • Drinks: For a refreshing alternative to Champagne, try Prosecco or nonalcoholic apple cider.
  • Dessert: chocolate-bar-fondue with fruit and pound cake for dipping, in a fondue pot.
  • Favours: Give guests parting gifts of good fortune. Pack up black-eyed peas (which bring good luck, according to southern tradition) in a box or cellophane bag and a recipe.

Prepare Food

No need for an elaborate menu. Serve these hearty bites for a relaxed but festive celebration:
