Easy Ideas for a New Year’s Eve Celebration!

December 28

A New Year’s Eve celebration is one of the most festive ways to embrace new beginnings!  Whether it’s an all out bash or a quieter version with family, it is one of my favorite ways to end the holiday season but with such hope and expectation for all the exciting adventures to come!  I’m so thrilled to have partnered with Grand Rapids Popcorn Company and Amalfi Decor to bring you some really simple but no less festive ways to set up a glamorous snack table that will fit right in to any party…big OR small!  Get ready to pop, clink, fizz and nibble your way into 2018!  The New Year is just around the corner…make it a memorable one with those you love!

pop, fizz, clink…crunch!

if you’re looking for a fun way to set up a quick and delicious snack table for your celebrations…don’t just pop the cork…try popcorn for a fun pairing with your bubbly choices!

New Year’s Eve popcorn fun!

wine, bubbly, beer and even cocoa can be paired with some crunchy choices that will make your guests smile!  you can raid your cupboards for containers fit for a party!

extra wine goblets make pretty vessels for some delicious Grand Rapids Popcorn Company caramel corn!

this popcorn is SO delicious and makes an effortless grab-and-go snack!

New Year's Eve

i even used it to top some mini cupcakes!

New Year's Eve Treats

a fun way to tie the New Year’s Eve popcorn theme together AND it added some sweet crunch to purchased cakes…

New Year's Eve

something savory…

i grabbed some stemless martini glasses and filled them with something savory this time…white cheddar!

New Year's Eve

it looks so pretty in the glasses…and when served on a pretty pedestal it makes a simple snack seem extra grand!

you can also dress these Amalfi Decor stands with coordinating ribbons to match any theme…and a little sparkle is always festive for New Year’s Eve!

New Year's Eve

some beer glasses filled with bottles were fun to pair with another savory bite…cheddar pretzel ale!

New Year's Eve

what a fun choice to serve with the suds!

New Year's Eve

savory AND sweet…

a wonderful combo of two of my personal favorites…this cheesy caramel corn was hard to resist!  i have to admit i did a little (maybe a lot) of nibbling…trust me, you just have to try it!

New Year's Eve

i also included some chocolate covered nuts to the crunchy selections on the table…

New Year's Eve

cordial glasses were the perfect size…but juice glasses or even votive holders would work wonderfully!

New Year's Eve

the addition of some star sprinkles is a festive AND easy holiday touch!

New Year's Eve

a toasty sip…

i decided to include a favorite holiday drink…hot cocoa!  tiny star containers of cocoa crown the mugs so guests can mix up a warm, non alcoholic choice!

New Year's Eve

make it festive!

since this is a party table, some classic New Year’s Eve decorations are in order!  simple party horns are fun to scatter about with some pretty confetti

New Year's Eve

and simple photo props are always a good time!

New Year's Eve

tiny party hats make perfect crowns for the bottles!  a deconstructed bow adds some extra sparkle “popping” from the top!
