We enjoyed a New Year’s Eve party at our house for about 60 guests. We made it a Cocktail Party which ran from 7pm-11pm so that they could party here and then happily see the New Year in at home. I often hear people say that what they dislike most about a New Year’s Eve party is the count down at midnight (maybe for fear of catching a cold sore from someone who has had one too many).
Easy Entertaining | It was an easy night for entertaining. We used the dining table to lay out all the buffet food, the bench top for the teas, coffee and chocolates (which from memory very few people even bothered to have) and the outdoor floating bench top for all the drink service.
The invitation list and the music are just as important as the food and wine on nights like these.
