New Year’s Eve Dinner Party Celebrations

December 1, 2018

Are you thinking about doing something different for New Year’s Eve this year? Have you always wanted to host a New Year’s Eve dinner party for your friends, family, or co-workers? New Year’s Eve is often celebrated with a large party late at night when the ball drops. But for the early evening, people love gathering for great food and tasty cocktails. This year, when you can finally plan your dinner party, you can treat your guests to a delightful evening as you ring in the New Year together. Let’s talk about what makes a New Year’s Eve dinner party something special: booking a venue, offering a full course menu, and classic New Year’s Eve cocktails.


Choosing a Location
You can host a New Year’s Eve dinner party in your home if you wish to have a small get together. If you’re looking to host a larger dinner party, it’s best to book a venue or a small room to make planning and organization easier on yourself. It’s important to think about the number of guests you’ll be inviting, and always expect a few more or less. At Danversport Yacht Club, we offer amazing venues like The Captain’s Quarters, perfect for a New Year’s Eve dinner party. Book this room for your dinner party that will allow you and your guests enough space, but cast your ideal, intimate setting.

What’s on the Menu?
When you think about creating a menu or hiring a catering company for your dinner party, think about what you definitely want to include. For appetizers, try to include shrimp cocktail, spinach artichoke dip with pita bread, stuffed mushrooms, and bacon-wrapped scallops. Think of healthy, fun, or interesting options. For entrees, think roasted chicken, pork or beef, with homestyle or steamed veggies, pasta, and a salad on the side. If you’re interested in a vegetarian option, try seared salmon, black bean burgers, or fish tacos. For desserts, think of puddings, lava cakes, chocolate covered strawberries, and more!

New Year’s Eve Cocktails
As your guests anxiously await New Year’s Eve, they’re going to be excited thinking about the intricate and creative cocktails on this holiday. Make sure you don’t disappoint! If you want to plan a cocktail station, let guests choose what they want to drink by ordering from a bartender. The venue will help you decide which type of liquor and beer to offer. Besides offering a cocktail station, decide on a few specialty cocktails for the night and offer them on your menu. Try a peach bellini prosecco punch, lime Moscow mules, a red or white sangria, a ginger orange mimosa, or a martini with a twist.
