Ring in the new year with epic appetizers, finger foods, and tasty bits. These New Years Eve Party Foods are crowdpleasers!


When I was a kid, my parents would often host an NYE party for all their friends in town. At the time, I thought that these were pretty swank gatherings. Mind you, it was the 1980s. Therefore, the guests were showing up in tuxedoes and gowns. Their bowtie and cumberbund were usually adorned with a marble pattern or an homage to Jackson Pollock. The women rocked a few spritzes from the Charlie perfume their kids had just given them for the holidays. Compared to my Benneton shirt and Bugle Boys that night, these guests were dressed to the nines. Like Gordon Gekko and Princess Vespa air guitaring in our living room!

Before things got too “festive”, I usually trundled upstairs to watch the crowd in Time Square on TV, with a plate of New Year’s Eve party foods for late-night snacking, along with some leftover Christmas cookies.

Check out these New Years party appetizers and snacks, and let’s get to cooking! Most of these are also kid-friendly party foods, so when it is time for the kiddos to leave before the air guitaring gets going, they will have some fancy finger foods to enjoy!
