Another New Year is upon us, and it is hard to believe 2015 has come to an end. It seems the years are moving along quicker and quicker these days. It is nice to stop and reflect on the year, and realize all the good and bad that has happened, and move forward with greater knowledge with hopes of doing better.
New Year’s Day brunch is the perfect way to start fresh and with the right foot forward. A simple, yet elegant table will help you ring in the New Year with just the right amount of sparkle.
I was arranging some flowers, and was thinking of a way to dress up some ordinary flowers with a little sparkle for the New Year. I had some fun little gold and sparkly ornaments laying around from Christmas, so I decided to add a few to the vase after I had arranged the flowers. They added another element of sparkle to the table, and were a fun yet simple way to make my arrangements more festive for the New Year. I just added the ornaments to the arrangement after I finished arranging the flowers, then added the water.
The New Year is such a promising time. A time to reflect on the previous year, and to celebrate with the hope and desires we have for the year to come.
A good New Year’s celebration is a great way to ring in another year, and spend time with the ones you love. My favorite way to entertain is with good fun, and most of all, good food. Food can make or break a party, so it is important to serve food with quality ingredients that impress your guests, and their taste buds. Simple appetizers are my favorite to serve on holidays, especially New Year’s Eve.
Appetizers are easy to eat, and they still leave you with an appetite to be able to try a variety of foods. I am partnering with Overstock Farmer’s Market today, to bring you a simple yet impressive New Year’s Appetizer that is sure to please your guests and their palate.
When I think of New Year’s Celebrations, I think of seafood!
The past few years our family has made the tradition of heading to Harmons Grocery on New Year’s Eve during their Seafood Frenzy. Every December 31st Harmons Grocery stores have their New Year’s Eve Seafood Frenzy that I look forward to every year! They have all things Seafood from 9 am to 6 pm, and there are demos, giveaways, and my favorite is the samples! They have some amazing seafood to sample and purchase, and it is flown in fresh!
We usually go a little crazy and buy a little of everything to bring home to sample as our New Year’s Feast!
