I am a vegetarian. Mostly vegan.
I am an interior designer.
I love to par-tay.

Anywhoo — In this post, I’ve collected some delicious drinks and vegan snack ideas that will keep your guests and yourself happy; as well as sparkling tablescape ideas and sources for awesome entertaining pieces.
Let’s ring in the New Year right!
When I think of a New Years party menu I immediately think about the drinks and/or shots that will be served. In fact, I have already shared with y’all 15 Signature New Years Eve Drinks (over-achiever)! You can take a look at all of the fun here.
Now, since we have that perfect drink taken care of, let’s jump into our Vegan New Years Eve party snacks shall we?
Since colour is my world I had to share this recipe for Rainbow Salsa. Such vibrant colours, easy to make, healthy, and good grief this looks delicious. Compliments of Ali at Gimme Some Oven! Hop over and check out her many delicious recipes.
Whether your guests are invited or unexpected, these mini Kale and Lentil Salad Spoons come together quickly and deliciously. Definite crowd pleasers!
Wild Garlic Pesto Snails – these are the perfect snack for parties, because they are a finger food and so quick to make! Oh – and they are pretty!
These Vegetarian Sweet & Sour Porcupine “Meatballs” look amazing. This is definitely a healthier dish that aims to please everyone, vegetarians and meat-lovers alike!
A Vegan 7-Layer Mexican Dip – Doesn’t this look incredible? Chips and dips are great for casual parties.
Now, on to the best part – well after the booze – the vegan desserts!
Three amazing words -> Mini Vegan Cheesecakes. That’s all.
Who said that eating gluten, egg, and dairy-free meant that you couldn’t indulge in your favorite Starbucks treats?! The Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar – Gluten-Free Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bar. Simply put – it is amazing!
These cute little Chocolate Banana Cream Mini Desserts are so easy to make and are perfect individual sized servings. This guilt-free version is made with clean ingredients and it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugars.
You can’t go wrong with a classic like banana splits. Put a modern twist on this classic favorite with these Banana Split Bites!
Loving this “sparkly” Gluten Free Vegan Walnut Cresent Cookies – add a little sugar sparkle on top and you have the perfect cookie for your New Years dessert table!
Let’s dance into the best part of this post – styling your New Years Eve tablescape.
I think that we all can agree that the black, white, and gold colour scheme reminds us of New Years. I think this colour combo is just beautiful. Take a look at these gorgeous black, white, and gold tablescapes that scream Happy New Year!
If you are in need of some awesome serveware and accessories for your New Years Eve shindig (or for any gathering for that matter) I have rounded up a few of my favorites:
This set of 4 Gold Cheetah Print Champagne Glasses are a must-have. Embellished with a gold-tone cheetah print, these champagne coupes add modern elegance to any occasion.
Remember the post on DIY: Flatware Made Modern? Now would be a perfect time to whip out your extra flatware, nail polishes, and Frog Tape for your many guests!
Be prepared for your next party with this gold glitter cheese carving, slicing, and serving accessory fresh from Paris, France and perfect for New Years Eve Soiree’s.
You may recognize these malachite inspired napkins from the Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour that I participated in earlier this month. I received so many compliments on these – they are gorgeous. Add these to your New Years table and prepare to impress!
This set of 4 Stoneware Bowls are perfect for serving tasty treats. I love the muted natural color of matte stoneware. These pure stoneware bowls have a delicate texture yet are durable for everyday use.
Tigers, Elephants, Zebras, and Giraffes OH MY! Save your tables from boring coasters, or even worse, no coasters at all! Jonathan Adler will have us all sipping in style with the new high fired gold and black porcelain Animalia Coasters.
Add a touch of style to the scene with this high-quality bamboo tray for serving drinks and snacks. The elegant curved shaping around the sides make this a unique gift, and side handles make it convenient to carry.
These little stags do it all! Happy to hang on wine glass rims as drink markers or to chill on your mug and hold tea bag strings around their antlers, this colorful, silicone set makes bevvies even better. 2-in-1? More like ‘2-in-wonderful’! Never lose your drink again!
Whether you are hosting your New Years Eve bash or attending, I wish you all a fun, safe, and
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
