New Year’s Eve Party Recipe Planning

New Year’s Eve Party Recipe Planning

The holiday season is not over yet.

It culminates with New Year’s Eve celebrations across the world in less than two weeks! However, traditional party foods and holiday decor can feel a bit tired after weeks of celebrating already. We’re here to help make you an all star host with three NYE party theme ideas and their perfect food and drink pairings.


NYE Party Theme 1: Pajama Party

A pajama party theme is great for adults and children alike. From fluffy robes to onesies to matching family pajama sets, attire is both fun and comfortable for this party—and there’s no harm if you don’t make it to midnight! We recommend serving food and drinks with a fun take on breakfast. Some of our favorites include:

Signature beverage:

Festive food pairings:

NYE Party Theme 2: Keep It Cozy Party

Come as you are. Think cozy buffalo check flannel and warm fur vests with a bon fire. We suggest preparing foods that are modern twists on classic crowd-pleasers, like the following:

NYE Party Theme 3: Glitz & Glam Party

Lastly, you can never go wrong with a classic “Glitz and Glam” theme. New Year’s Eve is the perfect occasion for your guests to show off their sparkliest cocktail attire and enjoy sparklers for the first time since the Fourth of July. So keep those white twinkly lights up, fill your home with black and gold balloons, and serve an array of more sophisticated party foods, such as:

Signature beverage (feel free to add a bit of bubbly):

The possibilities for New Year’s Eve parties—just like the year that lies ahead—are endless. We’d love to hear what other party themes or NYE traditions you have, so we can add them to our list for next year!

No matter what you do to celebrate, your New Year’s Eve will be a success with these two key ingredients: Loved ones with which to celebrate and delicious food to gather around. Cheers!
