You could do most of this the day before or spread it out, so your not so rushed and trying to still make things the day of.  I’m always underestimating how fast wings go.  Have a great time.

Sounds good! You could also do fondue or a spinach/artichoke dip.

For a New Years Party, people might eat more than you think. I know for me, after I start drinking I eat a lot more!

Definitely make these if you have time. http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/07/bacon-wrapped_j/

I make them for every party and they are always the first thing to go. People go crazy for them. It’s actually kind of strange.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve had 2 parties in the last 2 weekends and am flat burnt out, so here’s hoping it all goes smoothly for you!!

Sounds fun, two reasons to celebrate! For you own sanity, and so you can enjoy the party as well, I suggest you really limit the number of items that will require attention/cooking during the party itself. You don’t want to spend the whole time in the kitchen.  When I have people over, I always do a brie/cracker/grapes plate.  You might find some easy frozen things from a Trader Joes or Costco like mini-spanikopitas.

If you’re not drinkers, you could do a fun non-alcoholic beverage like sparking cider or a hot spiced cider.

What about a Pepperoni roll? It’s really filling and just like pizza!

Super easy and even if you arent drinkers (assuming guests arent drinkers also) hours from 8 to 12 is a long time with only small munchy foods.

Make some pulled pork in your crockpot (set it and forget it!) and then you can keep it warm in the crockpot on low during the party. Set it out with small rolls to make mini sliders.  That with some veggie trays, cheeses etc will be a well rounded finger food selection that doesnt require any attention really.

If you wanted to dress up your veggie tray make some blanched and cooled asparagus spears and wrap in a slice of prosiutto. Serve cold or room temperature. Its nice, on the lighter side and again good finger food you dont have to fuss over.

you can make little sandwiches, you can have bowls of nut mix, or gourmet popcorn, fruit skewers and yoghurt or syrup dip
