Every New Year’s Eve we always have a family party to celebrate the New Year! We have delicious treats and finger foods, so we decided to share a few of our favorites with you in case you needed any ideas for your New Years Eve Party!
New Year’s Eve Party with Kids
New Year’s Eve may not be exciting for moms and dads with small kids. Why would we intentionally stay up late (and let the kids stay up too!) when we’re already feeling a little sleep deprived?
If you still want to make it a special night, but aren’t willing to commit to the stress of under-slept children, here are some ideas:
- Celebrate early! Set the clocks so that “midnight” rolls in around 7 or 8pm. Bang pots, toot horns, kiss them, and send them off to bed!
- Slumber party! Let the kids do something a little special, by sleeping together in another room.
- Hire a babysitter! Go out with friends and leave the kids behind. Leave behind some special treats, a movie, or other activities.
- Celebrate at breakfast! Instead of a late night, celebrate with a special breakfast the next morning. Try our Overnight Baked Caramel French Toast.
New Year’s Goals and Resolutions
New Year’s Eve is about celebrating the past and looking forward to the future. Many take this chance to set new goals and resolutions for the coming year.
Here’s a fun way to incorporate this tradition into your New Year’s Eve Party. Have everyone write down 1-2 goals they have for the coming year and put them in a hat. The host then reads the responses, one at a time, while the guests guess whose goal it is.
This is a fun way to learn more about family and friends as well as to commit to your new goals. (And yes, we think that resolving to make a new Six Sisters recipe every week is a great goal!)
