Champaign is always the classic New Year’s Eve drink of choice but why not put a twist on it by mixing in an exotic fruit juice? Pomegranate, Guava, Pineapple and Tangerine juices make fine pairing with Champaign. You may also want to switch it up with some Prosecco this year which is less sweet than Champaign or sparkling wine.
Yummy finger food is a must but rather than sticking to light fare, why not have some strong and hearty flavors packed into a neat package like these sliders. Vegan and vegetarian options are plentiful with sliders so don’t think they have to be meat. Your guests will appreciate the ease of consumption, and the mouth full of flavor these little sliders pack.
Music is a must and depending on the crowd you’ve invited, your music choices can make or break the party. 2013 was a great year in music, so sticking to the top hits of this year can totally be a crowd pleaser (especially for the youngsters). But be sure to mix it up with some throwbacks to represent all generations in attendance…oldies also know how to liven things up.
Party games are always a fun way to break the ice and get people talking and laughing. Here’s a fun one for the close nit group: Get everyone to write down their 2014 resolutions on a piece of paper and put them all in a large bowl. Have a good laugh as the guessing game begins with each draw from the bowl!
Giving your guests a theme to expect is a fun way to keep things exciting. Pick a theme like having everyone arrive wearing their favorite hat. Stock up on some extras so no one is left out if they forget theirs. Makes posing for photos really fun and helps ensure everyone is entertained.
Whatever you decide, have fun and be a responsible host; don’t let those who’ve been drinking drive home drunk. For more great entertaining and hosting ideas, be sure to visit the Mosaik Homes Facebook Page!
