Plan a Meal Prepartion New Year’s Eve Party
Involve the whole family in a fun meal preparation party such as making Sushi, Taco’s or maybe a Fondue party. Get creative in the kitchen with a meal that everyone has to participate in.
You can even make the finished products a contest to see who made the most creative sushi roll.
This is a great party idea even if you have several guests. What a fun idea for New Years Eve!

Around the Fire Pit New Year’s eve party Idea
We love using our fire pit in the spring and fall, however rarely use it in the winter. What about getting cozy with blankets, jackets, toboggans and gloves.
You can roast hot dogs and make s’mores while telling scary stories around the fire. We have these skewer’s that extend to safely roast either.
See all the details about our outdoor kitchen and fire pit area in this previous post.
Obviously, this is a weather permitting party but sounds like it would be fun.

If weather doesn’t permit, bring the party inside with a game night. Have several options to keep everyone from becoming bored. You can even play in your PJ’s

A fun dice game is Left, Right & Center. Hours of fun and you can play for money. We use quarters so there’s never a great loss.

Another one of the 5 fun options is to explore new wine parings. Prepare several choices of appetizers, desserts, etc, to taste with the different wines. Use the evening to learn more about wine appreciation.
Old Photo’s – Fun Memories on New Year’s Eve at Home
Do you ever take the time to go through old photo’s? This would be a fun walk down memory lane.
Pull out old photo’s and try to find some from Christmas and New Year’s Eve Past.
Old photo’s have a way of reminding us of fun times we’ve not thought of for years. Even if your photo’s are on your computer, it’s still a fun way to end the year.
If you are inviting guest, ask them to bring some New Year’s Eve memory photo’s. It’s always fun to see how we’ve changed over the year. Am I right? LOL!!!!
