3 Must-Haves For Your New Year’s Eve Party

Here are my 3 must-haves picks for a New Year’s Eve celebration.  I love the back to basics feel of each and they are a great way to start out the New Year in a simple and special way.

1. Pop the Prosecco

Keep the cork on the champagne and pop the Prosecco this year. Prosecco is an Italian wine – generally a dry sparkling wine – made from a variety of white grapes of the same name.  The name is derived from the northern Italian village of Prosecco, where the grape is believed to have originated. Unlike most Champagne, Prosecco does not improve with aging and should be consumed within six months to a year of it’s purchase date. It tends to be dryer than many Champagnes and a good bottle will run you around $15 verses much more for Champagne. When shopping for this wine, keep in mind that extra dry prosecco is actually sweeter than brut.

Learn more by watching Gary Vaynerchuk Wine Library TV .  He tastes best sellers : Zardetto Prosecco, Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco, Riondo Prosecco. Gary’s favorite NV Riondo Prosecco di Valdobbiadene and my pick this year!

2. Serve a sweet treat midnight snack

Serve your guests doughnuts with their champagne at midnight. Many cultures believe that anything in the shape of a ring is good luck because it symbolizes “coming full circle”, completing a year’s cycle. Further, the Dutch believe that eating doughnuts on New Year’s Day will bring good fortune.  Donuts are fun and festive and who doesn’t like them!

3. Ring it in with Tattoos

I love these Mulit colored jewel tattoos. They are totally hip for ringing in the New Year in style.  Tattoos are not just for kids, the adults at your party will love these too! You can purchase temporary tattoos at your local party supply store, I have seen everything from the ones shown above to tattoos bracelets that say “2010″.
