New Year’s Eve Good Luck Grapes!

GOODLUCKGrapeS

Add a conversation starter to your New Year’s Eve Bash and bring your guests some good luck for 2013.

This interesting food accessory is a healthy dessert representing “Good Luck”.  Simply, thread 12 grapes on bamboo skewers and then display them on a simple white rectangular tray.  At midnight let guests help themselves to some good luck!   You can also try it the way we did in the above image, and serve 6 red and 6 green in a Martini glass.

Other good luck foods include:

  • Portuguese party-goers eat raisins to bring them good fortune in the New Year.
  • In the southern United States, black-eyed peas have long been a New Year’s Eve tradition.
  • Cabbage is a “good luck” vegetable that is consumed on New Year’s Day by many cultures.
  • Rice is a lucky food that is eaten on New Year’s Day throughout the world.
  • The Dutch eat donuts for good luck and to symbolize the completion of the year coming full circle.
  • The Chinese enjoy oranges - the word for orange sounds like the word for good luck and good fortune.

    But more than the quantity, quality should be a major concern.
    Very often, freebies are included to sweeten a deal.
    Even if you’re working by yourself, being enthusiastic
    will make a major difference to your overall progress, and it
    will show in your work.

  3. […] 1. Eat grapes for good luck in the new year! Make sure you have enough for 12 grapes per guest – 1 grape for each month. Or serve other “good luck” foods listed at Party Bluprints. […]
