Tips, Tricks and Warnings
- Keep the snacks and finger food small in bite size pieces. Offer vegetables or fruit platters as options.
- Use disposable plates, cups and cutlery to save your precious China and crystals. It also saves you from doing the dishes after the party is over.
- If the party is to be held at your home, make sure to have arrangements made for those that will be drinking. Contact a cab company and have them pick up your guests and return them home again.
- Be the first to know what the New Year has to offer for your friends. Print out positive messages and good tidings that can cheer your friends up. Cut the messages in sizes that can be easily inserted through tiny slits of fortune cookies.
