Hosting our family for New Year’s Eve is something new that we started last year. Our theme was a Pizza Bar and it so much fun! So, I thought I’d put together some of my tips and recipes for an amazing night. Then, you can feast at home this New Year’s Eve, too.
Here are some of my favorite suggestions for a New Year’s Eve feast at home:
For an easy “fix it and forget it,” how about a cheese and charcuterie spread? It’s something that you can create in the afternoon, and leave out to snack on all evening.
Learn how to make your own cheese and charcuterie board here or watch my video:
Most ovens have a “keep warm” mode, so make ahead a dish you can bake and keep warm until serving. Lasagna would be ideal as a New Year’s Eve entree. Here’s my recipe link. Not in the mood to cook? Then, you can buy a prepared frozen lasagna rather than making your own.
Last year, I made pizza dough from scratch for our New Year’s Eve feast. Everyone made their own individual pizzas from the dough. An easier way, though, is to buy flat bread as the base for the pizzas. Genius, right?
If you aren’t suitably food inspired, I’ll add a few more New Year’s Eve Feast worthy recipes at the end.
Although it’s New Year’s Eve, keep the beverages simple. Bottled still water, sparkling waters and juices, orange juice, Champagne, beer, wine, and a mixed drink are all good to have on hand.
This variety of beverages will satisfy most guests. Plus, they can mix Champagne and orange juice for a Mimosa. And, if you have flavored syrups, make them available to create custom non-alcoholic beverages. Consider mixing up a pitcher of your favorite mixed drink, or find a special drink to serve HERE.
Ringing in the New Year
When it’s time to ring in the New Year, have some noise makers on hand. Sparklers and poppers are also a big hit. Last year, we bought New Year’s hats and tiaras, blowers, and horns to celebrate.
This New Year’s Eve, we will feast on a Cheese and Charcuterie board, Bratwurst, and potato skins.
The whole idea is to have fun together. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just easy and festive. After all it’s the beginning of a new decade. Spend it with your loved ones and friends.
Happy New Year, friends!
