Ring in the New Year with a celebratory countdown table with clock plates, clocks and party horns and hats

A Southern dish turned-finger food, that’s fit for company and fun for New Years!
This little bite is a crowd pleaser! The crab mixture can be made a day in advance, then the bite-size cakes are baked in a mini muffin tin with a crust of Parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs!
A make-ahead appetizer that’s light and bright and tantalizes your taste buds with tangy vinegar, bright citrus, with a slightly sweet licorice flavor from fennel
Oh so good and easy! Roast the grapes in advance, allow to cool and refrigerate until ready to assemble. If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, substitute another soft cheese like goat, Boursin or Brie.

Warm Olives, so simple and so good!
Use your favorite olives, especially easy and convenient using a mixed assortment from the olive bar at the grocery store. Ready to serve in 10 minutes.
A layered salad with ingredients to bring good luck in the new year~ cornbread, corn kernels, black-eyed peas, and bacon. Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes and smoked turkey, makes it a complete meal.
Easy to whip up with a food processor and a delicious and healthy way to serve up some good luck for the New Year
Cornbread is considered a good luck food for the new year since the color resembles gold. The addition of broccoli and cheese makes for a moist and flavorful cornbread that sneaks in some green veggies!
Serve up your good luck for the new year with pork, black-eyed peas and collards under a layer of golden cornbread, in one skillet!
Wishing you a Sparkling Safe New Year and New Beginnings ♥
