75 New Year's Eve Party Ideas

With 2017 just around the corner, it's time to begin planning our New Year's Eve celebrations. And if you haven't started planning the decor, activities or food for your party, do not worry. There is still time to pull together a party that your friends and family will talk about for years to come.

To help you get started with the planning, Tiny Prints recently pulled together a New Year's Eve tool that lets you sort through party ideas, food and cocktail recipes and more that will inspire your celebration. Once you have the major planning down, make sure that you have a few games picked out to keep your guests entertained.

New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to celebrate all things sparkly, making disco truffles a great choice for your dessert table. The truffles are made using semi-sweet chocolate, and they’re decorated with gold and silver dust.

This cocktail swaps out the traditional soda used in a Shirley Temple for champagne. To make the cocktail, all you need is champagne of your choice, a splash of grenadine and cherries and orange slices for garnish.

Add a creative twist to your cheese and cracker plate by placing black olive ties and buttons onto each cheese wedge! You can use your favorite type of soft cheese, or you can use an assortment of cheeses.
