Remember the days when New Years Eve meant staying out all night in your fanciest dress and highest heeled shoes? There are parts of those celebrations I miss, to be sure…but I’m finding loads of fun in planning a NYE celebration for my little lady too! (also, spending the evening in slipper socks makes for a much more comfortable New Year’s Day than my stilettos ever did!)
My daughter is 4 years old, so we’ll be reassigning midnight to occur around 7pm! (She’ll never know the difference!) We’re inviting one of her favorite friends over to celebrate with us, so I’ve created a very exciting party plan for them!
There can be no party for these fun fellows without some great food! Here’s what I’ll be serving:
Everyone loves an “assemble it yourself” snack, but usually these are junk food centered. Coming out of the holiday season, I’m giving my little friends a break from all the sugar and letting them assemble their own party trail mix! All the fun of being in control over your food (something my daughter has way too much experience in!) without the sugar! You can use just about anything you’d like for your own party trail mix, just take a peek inside your pantry!
I made these Pepperoni rolls a few times over the holiday season for parties I went to, and they were a resounding HIT! They are so simple and quick to make, you’ve just GOT to try it! Here’s my “recipe”
Preheat oven to 375. Put about a tablespoon of cream cheese on the large end of each crescent triangle, then a few pieces of pepperoni. Roll up and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until slightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to mostly cool.
Next I’ll show you how I put together all the decorations and party activities with dollar store stuff!
