Party Ideas for NYE and Beyond!

Party Ideas for NYE and Beyond on Betties N Brimstone Blog

Are you hosting a party on New Year's Eve? Having the family over on New Year's Day? Or maybe even just being a hermit at home (my personal preference!), I have got some great ideas for party appetizers and brunch options for the upcoming festivities.

Let's start with party food options. My favorite kind of party food is appetizers! I've got three tried-and-tested options that are super yummy (and vegetarian-friendly!) for your next shindig:

PARTY FOOD:
Appetizer Skewers on Betties N Brimstone Blog

These appetizer skewers are always a hit at parties because they're so easy to pick up and go! If you're assigned to bring an appetizer, these are the way to go - they travel easy, and they're popular with kids and adults alike. Not to mention super easy to make - you can even have the kids help you assemble them before the party!

Taco Cups Recipe on Betties N Brimstone Blog

Taco cups are a great appetizer because of the versatility in the recipe. You could choose to make these with taco meat or chicken if you're all carnivores, but it is so easy to keep these vegetarian and to create different options for toppers, such as sour cream, guacamole, salsa, jalapenos... you name it!

Teriyaki Tofu Sliders Recipe on Betties N Brimstone Blog

Maybe you need a more substantial option for your party... something more meal-like. Think tiny sandwiches! You could easily make a bunch of lettuce/tomato/lunchmeat choices, or even tiny burgers... but what about our awesome vegetarian friends? Go outside the norm and surprise your guests with a teriyaki tofu slider! These are super easy to make with the aid of pre-marinated refrigerated teriyaki tofu from Trader Joe's.

BRUNCH IDEAS:
Egg + Veggie Casserole on Betties N Brimstone Blog

I actually made this breakfast casserole on Christmas morning this year, only instead of cheddar and broccoli, I swapped for fresh mushrooms and goat cheese. It was amazing! I also used diced frozen potatoes instead of the shredded kind (it was all that was available at the store). Still delicious, so don't be afraid to experiment with the base recipe and jazz it up to suit your tastes!

DIY Bloody Mary Bar on Betties N Brimstone Blog

Bloody Marys are my favorite go-to drink for holiday celebrations during the day. Like the day after Christmas, when my husband's side of the family gets together. One of the best things about Bloody Marys are the garnishes. Go crazy and create a whole bar of options for you and your guests!

DIY Pancake Bar on Betties N Brimstone Blog

We had a pancake bar for Iggy's second birthday party, but this would also be a super rad idea for a New Year's Day brunch party. If you're not feeling the pancakes vibe, set up a toaster and a box of frozen waffles and go hog wild!

Vegan Banana Muffins on Betties N Brimstone Blog

If you're traveling to a New Year's Day event, a batch of homemade banana muffins are always a welcome treat. Bonus - they're vegan-friendly! Yum!
