Skip (at Least Some of) the Cooking – Serve Fresh Fruit Instead!

With New Year’s Eve just days away, you may have already started shopping for ingredients or even making some of the snacks you’re planning to serve. We’ve got a few fresh additions to your party menu that everyone will enjoy! Our Delicious Celebration® that is as beautiful as it is delicious. It’s packed with pineapple stars, pineapple daisies, strawberries, melon, and so much more, all beautifully arranged in a keepsake container.

Or our Chocolate Dipped Indulgence Platter filled with decadent chocolate-covered fruit, including apples, strawberries, pineapple, and more. It offers a healthier take on traditional desserts, yet it’s still oh-so-delicious, which makes it a New Year’s Eve platter.

Keep the Crowd Going with Fun Party Games

Games are a great way to kick start the party and keep the energy up all night long. Great as ice breakers and as a fun way to keep everyone entertained before the clock strikes midnight, New Year’s Eve party games are the perfect way for everyone to get to know each other, loosen up, and have a great night. Show off your skills in a karaoke sing-off or test your knowledge with competitive board games. There are so many options to help you keep the party going. (And, let’s face it – it’ll make for some great stories to tell the next day!) Give your guests a handful of games to choose from, and let the best person or team win. You can even sweeten the deal by offering a tasty prize for the winners to take home! (We have a few ideas.)

Leave a Lasting Impression with Party Favors

Whether your guests are crashing at your place or spending the night nearby, it’s always a great idea to give them a little something they can leave with. Hand out New Year’s tiaras and party hats, and go retro by documenting the night with an instant camera so party goers can take the photos with them. You can also put together treat bags including a post-NYE survival kit, or a to-go container full of their favorite leftovers. Looking for a favor idea that’s really fresh? Stop by your local Edible Arrangements® store, where they have lots of party favor ideas available any time including individually wrapped chocolate dipped pineapple Edible Pops® in fun shapes, pieces of chocolate Dipped Fruit™, and more. Whatever you choose to do, your guests are sure to appreciate the thoughtful gesture.

Now that you have some pretty sweet last-minute New Year’s Eve party ideas, it’s time to get to work. Call or visit your local store or shop our website for sweet treats you and your guests can celebrate with this New Year’s Eve.

Here’s wishing you a very fruitful New Year!
