New Years Food Ideas
Grab a spoon and toast the New Year with a cool, sparkly dessert that wiggles. 1. Make bubbly Jell-O according to the directions on a box of Sparkling White Grape Jell-O. Be sure to use club soda, seltzer, or ginger ale and follow the tips on the box for getting the gelatin to sparkle. 2. Chill the Jell-O in champagne flutes or parfait glasses. We suggest making these the day of the party, since they might lose some bubbliness if they're made further ahead. Wind a metallic multicolored star garland (available at party stores) up the stem of the glass for pizzazz.

A New Years Tree! Such a great tradition to start. Put money/jokes/fortunes in balloons on the Christmas tree sans Christmas ornaments (only lights). At midnight let the kids pop the balloons and they get to keep what's inside.
