We are of two minds when it comes to New Year's Eve: We either want to be dressed to the nines at a fabulous ballroom-esque gala, or gathered with friends in a casual setting at home. This year we're opting for the latter, so we've put together a menu perfect for a casually elegant night in. For further tips, we've crafted test kitchen dossiers on both Cocktails
and Hors d'Oeuvres
for this month, so take all the notes you need to. Don't forget that the rest of our Entertaining
section has further tips on decor and the trimmings. Now get that celebration started, and say adieu to another year!
Cocktails, finger foods and dessert. Is there any better way to ring in the New Year?
