Serious Entertaining: New Year's Eve Partytime
Hey, here's your one last chance to party it up before you pretend to eat only celery and lemon water in January! If you're throwing a New Year's Eve party this Monday night (all of us partygoers thank you), here are some ideas for nibbles and bubbles to make sure everyone's enjoying the last minutes of 2012 and the early hours of 2013.
When guests arrive, make sure they get a drink in their hands. Here are some fantastic affordable sparkling wine recommendations from our Drinks editor Maggie. If you'd rather serve a big bowl of punch,we have those recipes, too.
With a champagne flute in one hand (or whiskey snifter or mug of wine, whatever your style), it's important that the second hand is busy popping hors d'oevures to keep up with the drinking hand. Here are some great cutlery-less snacks to serve.
Dips are pretty essential.
Nuts and Popcorn
These are what I call handful foods. They should be enjoyed in grabby handfuls.
Cheers! Slainte! Salud! Chin chin! Here's to a happy and healthy new year.
