New Year’s Eve Appetizer Party
It’s always fun to host a New Year’s Eve party. Everyone can put on their best finery and enjoy an elegant evening, or you can tell everyone it’s casual dress, and kick back with your friends. You an serve this menu for a New Year’s Eve appetizer party no matter how fancy or laid back the theme.
Whatever type of party you throw, the food must be wonderful. And this collection of appetizers makes a great spread.
Whenever you plan any menu, you must be sure that you mix colors, textures, flavors, and temperatures of the food. This menu offers both cold appetizers and hot choices, with savory and sweet options. There are choices for meat eaters and vegetarians.
Of course, champagne is the drink to serve with this menu on this evening. My favorite is Andre champagne. That may seem strange, but it was my father-in-law’s favorite too, and he really knew his wine.
You can serve this entire menu, or pick and choose your favorites. You can also change up the flavors, adding more spice, using a different cheese, or adapt the recipe as you’d like.
Just be cognizant of food safety. Serve hot food hot and cold food cold. Use ice under trays of cold food, and use slow cookers and chafing dishes to keep hot food nice and toasty.
Make sure you have lots of napkins, glasses for more champagne, and utensils and small plates so your guests can pick and choose what they want to eat without overloading. Also, vary the height of plates on the table. Use cake stands to elevate some plates and platters, and decorate with Christmas ornaments and pine branches.
Enjoy your party with family and friends!
New Year’s Eve Appetizer Party
This beautiful little salad makes a wonderful appetizer when you serve it in small glasses with little toothpicks. The combination of melon and avocado is delicious and beautiful too.
A three ingredient recipe is always welcome when you’re entertaining. This gorgeous little appetizer will look wonderful on your table.
I love this simple little recipe because it’s so decadent, yet not filling. If you have fun little holiday cocktail spreaders to use with this dip, all the better.
This recipe is made with biscuit mix, cheese, and sausage. I added cream cheese for a softer and creamier texture. Serve with a spicy dipping sauce.
Chex Mix is traditional at parties, but my version adds curry powder to make this a sweet and spicy treat.
Another three ingredient recipe! The only caveat I make with this appetizer is to use Medjool dates. They are the best.
Luckily, you can get great cherry tomatoes any time of the year, so this recipe can even be made in the winter. It’s one of the most delicious appetizers ever.
Phyllo shells come to the rescue again for this meaty little appetizer. You can make this recipe spicy or mild depending on the type of enchilada sauce you use.
Bacon and cream cheese is a wonderful combination. Roll into little balls and coat in toasted pecans for the perfect bite.
Serve this delicious guacamole with lots of different kinds of corn chips for a great bite of avocado lusciousness.
I love all these simple recipes! Sugar cookies are topped with a creamy lemon filling, then any type of fresh fruit you can find.
This pretty little cookie is the perfect choice for any holiday tray.
I think this is my favorite bar cookie recipe of all time. One bite and you’ll see why!
Finally, this simple two ingredient recipe makes one of the best candies you will ever eat.
