Hand these cards out to your guests and have some fun writing down your resolutions for the years. A skill you want to learn, an instrument you want to play, or something new you want to do that you’ve never done before, a habit you want to kick. Read them out loud with your friends and family. Keep the cards and display them on a board for the year to remind yourself of what things you want to change.
Prepare the perfect new year’s playlist for you and your guests to enjoy. Stick with a theme or mix it up! Ideas for playlists:
- Hits from 2017
- Song about the year from Time Out New York’s playlist: a mix of classic tunes from artists like Otis Redding and Eagles.
- Make your own. Choose songs that you love from any artist or era! Some of our favourites:
- The Andrew Sisters – “Rum and Coca Cola”
- Frank Sinatra – “That’s Life”
- Queen – “This Thing Called Love”
There are loads of finger foods that seem super impressive but are actually really easy to make! If you’re looking for some inspiration. Try these easy-to-make finger foods:
- Asparagus, ham and Camembert roll ups: place asparagus spears in a microwave plate with a little water. Cook for 2 mins, remove, season with garlic salt and pepper and lightly fry. Place Camembert on the spear and use thin slices prosciutto to keep it together. Fry again.
- Cheese board: pick up a variety of cheese and biscuits and pair them with chutney and caramelised onion.
- Caramelised onion and Camembert pastries: Bake sheets of puff pastry in the oven until they’re fluffy. Caramelise onion . Place onion on pastry and top with Camembert and a cherry tomato.
Depending on your preference you could keep it simple with beer, wine and spirits. Or you could get everyone to bring their own cocktail mix. Here are 10 easy cocktail recipes. Alternatively you could source boutique gins and create some ginspiring gin drinks!
