For the last few years, we’ve stayed in for New Year’s Eve. I love dressing up, but I also love cozying up at home and developing some fun family traditions. Two of my favorites revolve around food!
First, fondue. We make a cheese fondue for dinner and put together a big spread of dippings — bread, apples, pretzels, raw veggies, meat, etc. Then for dessert, we make a chocolate fondue and dip fruit, marshmallows, pretzels, and anything else we can find. It’s a fun tradition that’s pretty easy to pull together (even at the last minute), and everyone always has fun. And don’t forget — if you drop your food into the fondue pot, you have to kiss the person next to you! 😉
My next favorite food tradition is French sodas. It’s an easy recipe — ice, soda water, flavored syrup, and a splash half and half.
Since it’s usually just our family, I like to stick with a casual outfit, but something a little festive. The second I saw these glitter sneakers, I knew I had to have them. They’re perfect for NYE and would be so fun with a little black dress, but are also super comfy with an oversized chunky sweater, black jeans, and a cute striped tee. And I love that they’re not blatantly holiday style so you can wear them all year long.
Nordstrom has a few other fun glittery pieces that would be perfect for New Year’s Eve. I’ve linked all my favorites in the widget below!
