The Ultimate New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Plan

>When I was in my twenties, New Year’s Eve always involved a new dress, a stylish blowout, and an extravagant night on the town. Now that I’m in my thirties, I still love ringing in the New Year, but I no longer want to be in a crowded bar with 200 strangers drinking so-so champagne and taking a three-times surging Uber to get home when all the bars close at 2 a.m. Instead, I prefer to throw an elegant and sophisticated affair for my nearest and dearest in the comforts of my own home. I still get dressed up, but I select the bottles of bubbly that go in the fridge, and I make the food that sits on the table. If you love hosting events and have never thrown a New Year’s Eve dinner, I highly recommend it! To inspire you to gather your favorite people to enjoy the last meal of 2015, here is everything you need to plan the ultimate dinner party.
