Here are 3 quick and simple ideas for a last minute New Year’s Eve party. Each is a quick and simple way to start out the New Year with FUN!
1. Pop the Prosecco
If the Champagne is sold out – pop the Prosecco instead. 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. Try Partybluprint Picks: Adami and Filipetti Prosecco.
2. Serve A Sweet Midnight Snack
Pick up donuts New Year’s Eve day, and serve them to your guests with the Prosecco 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. Play Games
If you don’t have horns, hats and confetti on hand – play games for fun! They’re not just for kids, the adults at your party will love them too – in fact you should play them together. Games like Charades, Pictionary, Scatagories, Taboo, or a good old fashion game of Monopoly are the best way to keep the family fun going till midnight.
