Finding the perfect drink, appetizer or dessert recipe for a party can be overwhelming. Let me narrow it down for you with my favorite options.

Top Drinks, Appetizers, and Desserts for a Party!

With Christmas and Hanukkah over now it’s time to dive right into the next holiday – New Years Eve! Already it’s just a few short days away! I know many of you are planning your party or brainstorming what to bring to others get togethers for the big day. I’m here to help!

Here is my round-up of my favorite appetizer, drink, and dessert recipe ideas for you to choose from! I find myself constantly going back to these when holidays come up.


I hope you are able to find some inspiration from all of those delicious recipes! I personally cannot wait until the next party I’m invited to so I have an excuse to make a few of those again. Do you have a favorite that is your go-to each holiday season? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.

My Favorite Day of the Year!


High Hopes for 2016


  1. This such a delicious list for a fantastic New Years party! Enjoy and be safe! Happy new year!

  2. I love eating ALL the snacks on New Year’s Eve. My go-to snacks are always dips w/something. A sweet cream cheese dip for apple slices, a savory cheesy dip for bread or tortilla chips…pretty much, if it’s a dip, you’ll find me standing next to the bowl all night. 😛

  3. Mia

    Mmm, all the yummy drinks seem to start with M – mojito, margarita, mimosa! 😉 What a delicious, helpful list, thanks for sharing!

  4. Yum! Looks like you have some great stuff on your food and drink lists. We will probably stay in, so I can make a few of these just for us. Hope you had a great holiday, and have an even better 2016!

    • Thanks! You too 🙂 And staying in really is the best option sometimes – plus, more yummy treats for yourselves then haha

  5. We’re planning to do a low-key appetizer shin-dig for NYE… The Blooming Onion Cheesy Bread and Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are calling my name!

    • Low key get togethers with apps is usually my favorite way to celebrate anything! 🙂 Let me know if you end up making either of those!

  6. Wow, so many amazing choices on your food list – I am sure I will find something yummy to add to our New Year’s buffet! Wishing you all the best for 2016!

  7. Hey — thanks for this fantastic list! Just made my chore of finding an appetizer for New Year’s Eve MUCH easier!

  8. Yum! Cant wait to try that spritzer!! I always love caprese bites too!

  9. YUM! I love mac and cheese bites – so easy to do, but they really elevate the snack table 🙂 The spinach and artichoke dip sounds amazing. I love Alton Brown!

  10. Yum! These all sound good. I’m not cooking this NYE because we’re ordering sushi. I can’t wait!

  11. These all look so yummy!! Especially the desserts! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. This is an amazing collection of ideas and recipes. Thanks so much for compiling! My husband and I are going out for NYE this year, but I’ll definitely be referencing this list for future gatherings. =)

    • Hope you and your husband have an amazing time going out! 🙂 It’s so fun to hit the town for NYE as well 🙂

  13. All of these look so good! We will be having a party for my daughter soon so I may have to use some of these recipes!! Thank you for sharing and linking up with us over at the Welcome Home Wednesdays Link Party!!
