This year for New Year’s Eve, I am throwing a little get-together with some friends of mine at my apartment. It will be nothing too big or too fancy, but just a small, friendly, and inviting atmosphere so we all can enjoy each other’s company. When I have thrown other New Year’s Eve shindig’s in the past, my friends and I have made full meals for everyone to enjoy. However, what ends up happening is that everyone eats too much and the rest of the night can not be enjoyed as much because the party seems to be operating on a full stomach. That is why this year, my friends and I are only making appetizers. That way everyone can eat while not feeling stuffed or full. We have assembled a great collection of recipes that use your slow cooker to make the best New Year’s Eve appetizers. And as an added bonus to you, we have 6 fun crafts that will make your New Year’s Eve even better.
New Year’s Eve Appetizer Recipes
This Cheesy Bacon Dip from Cooking Cache is divine. Not only does it have bacon in it (I mean, come on, who doesn’t love bacon? Bacon makes everything taste better) but it is one of the the quintessential New Year’s Eve appetizer recipes. And even though this recipe requires you to use your slow cooker, it only takes one hour to make. It’s simple and a dish everyone is sure to enjoy.
These holiday appetizers are so good that even even the vegetarians at your party won’t be able to stop salivating at these scrumptious Slow Cooker Party Meatballs from The Country Cook. Even though it takes eight hours for the meatballs to marinate and cook, we promise that it will be well worth the wait. Everyone at your party won’t help but be drawn in by their meaty goodness.

I am positive that many of you will be going to someone else’s house for New Year’s Eve as opposed to hosting your own bash. Sure you could come to the party with one of the amazing appetizers mentioned above, but nothing will show the host and/or hostess that you appreciate their hospitality more than a hostess gift. Creating your own hostess gift is just one of many great New Year’s Eve party ideas. If you can’t find a gift to make in this collection of 15 Quick Impressive Hostess Gifts then you’re not trying hard enough!
Besides a hostess gift, something else you can bring to a New Year’s Eve party is a wonderful and effervescent bottle of wine. Every party and every host or hostess can appreciate a great bottle of wine to make the night that much more enjoyable. This Zippy Wine Bottle Cover pattern from Coats and Clark is a great design to help transfer your bottle of vino from your house to the party. When you show up to the party, everyone will be stunned to learn that the wine bottle cover you brought your wine in is not store bought.
