Simple New Year's Eve Ideas

I know a lot of people (including my family) love to do a bunch of appetizers for a casual New Year's Eve gathering or for a party with friends.

I've rounded up some delicious finger foods and dips that I've served and received rave reviews! Happy New Year and I hope it's a delicious one! Plus a few simple tips. 

I love popcorn for finger foods! it's so inexpensive and you can sweet or salty or both in my examples below. I literally ate 2 batches of the Parmesan ranch popcorn on my own! BE sure to put little cups out with the popcorn to encourage people to eat it! 

This Creamy Tuscan Dip is another crowd pleaser. I kept a little for myself and it was such a treat! (Mine is a red color because I put the sun dried tomatoes in the food processor before)

This Garlic Feta Dip is another unique dip that people will gobble up! Make it for New Year's or for any occasion really. You won't regret it! 

If you don't drink alcohol like me (!) an Italian Soda bar is a fun drink alternative that is both tasty and an experience that allows people to mix and match flavors. Our Best Bites does an awesome how to for how to do it and they are my favorite bloggers so I trust them fully! 

Have I mentioned my cardinal party rule? Always have fruits and vegetables on hand to counter all the decadent sweet and savory foods. It helps everyone eat something lighter and those with dietary restrictions will thank you too for the options also! 

 I love bright colors and fun party picks and straws to spice things up for a cute party!
