Whether you are having people over to ring in the New Year or you are headed to celebrate over at someone else’s home, it’s always fun to snack on some bite sized appetizers and finger food throughout the evening while you are waiting for the ball to drop at midnight. Bite sized appetizers are always my favorite part of any food table. I love the idea of being able to pick up a little snack and just pop it in my mouth, no utensils involved. That’s my kind of party food.
