One of my most favorite things to do is ring in the New Year with family and friends. Having kids has definitely added an element to our New Years festivities. Our once ROCKIN’ New Years Eve is now rocking in a whole new way! So what do you do with the kiddos!!! How do you make it fun for everyone?!?!
Last year my hubby and I started a traditional New Years Eve party where we invite a couple families over. We rock easy hors d’oeuvres along with some celebratory booze, and DD’s for the night. There ya have it…a good old fashion ringing in the New Year.
One element that’s always fun year to year is picking a theme. Last year it was ‘Fun-do’ with a variety of different fondue options. This year we are rocking the comfort food; hooking it up with walking tacos, libations to coordinate, and a make your own sundae bar! Who doesn’t love a good sundae! After that we usually do a countdown for the kids through Netflix which is a lifesaver and once the rowdiness settles and kids need their beds everyone is pretty much ready to head home. Some streamers may have been purchased, and noise makers of course which will soon be regretted after giving them to the cherubs. After all is settled, my hubby and I will retreat to the couch for a glass of champagne and the ball dropping…if we make it 😉
How will you be ringing in the New Year? Why not meet up for a hike, or start a new tradition of your own? The New Year is a great way to start something NEW and fun with your family whatever you choose!
From our family to yours ~ Wishing you all a Healthy & Happy New Year!
