What food and drinks should I serve?

The food and drinks you serve at your NYE party will most likely depend on the size of your guest list and your budget. If the guest list is on the larger side then you’ll definitely want to do appetizers, finger foods and h’ordeuvres rather than a sit down dinner. You can also throw your party pot luck style, buffet style, or throw a backyard BBQ if the timing and space permits. Some dish ideas include: mini sliders, pigs in a blanket, stuffed mushrooms, mini kabobs, cheese and deli meat platters, vegetables platters, shrimp cocktail, sushi rolls, chips and dip, pizza bites, cheese balls, savory pastries, bacon wrapped dates, and deviled eggs. For drinks you can serve the classics like wine and champagne or create some of your own cocktails or NYE punch served in a large punch bowl. You’ll also want to serve some type of dessert whether it's a giant cake or little cupcakes. Some other dessert ideas are mini tiramisus, crème brule, cookies, pudding, ice cream, pie, and fruit tarts.
