Happy New Year’s Eve!
Although it's already NYE, it isn’t too late to throw together some last minute appetizers and treats to enjoy while ringing in 2015. John and I will be hosting family, so I wanted to make some easy, no-fuss eats to enjoy while celebrating the New Year.
My parents, younger brother, and his girlfriend will be arriving in Scottsdale this evening, and my older brother, his wife, and our good family friends, Mark and Marsha, will be joining tomorrow.
It will be a great week of fun, exploring, and catching up!
Anyway, the goal for this evening is easy, but still tasty and festive... here are a few things that I have my eye on – we will see what I actually come up with when I make it to the grocery store this afternoon, but at least I have good intentions! Do you have any easy, but festive recommendations?
Here are some great, yet simple ideas for NYE hosting that require very little (or no) preparation.
Champagne and berry bar
A few berries dress up a glass of champagne quite nicely, if you ask me!
Who doesn’t love chocolate fondue? Serve with oreos, marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries, and whatever else your heart desires… it’s interactive and simple to put together.
Buy premade sugar cookies and draw on clock hands with frosting – and ta da! NYE cookies!
I’m not a huge fan of Hershey chocolate kisses, but with a theme this easy, why miss out?
It isn't necessarily festive, but it is easy and who doesn't love cheese?
Side note... one of the great things about Arizona is that I can celebrate the New Year on East Coast time and still be in bed by 10! Please tell me I’m not alone in thinking this is pretty amazing?
Have a safe and happy NYE!
