Maybe you’re not the stay-up-late & watch-the-ball-drop type on New Years Eve. Maybe you’d rather go to bed at a decent hour and welcome the new year with a New Years Day Brunch. After all, there will be football to watch and resolutions to start working on. Cyd of The Sweetest Occasion set up this brunch bar that is a perfect help-yourself display. Make it easy on yourself and serve pastries & muffins that you make yourself or buy from the bakery, fresh fruit, milk & juice. For protein you can cook a whole pack of bacon at once in the oven, or serve a spiral ham.
Offer small jars of jam as a sweet favor for your guests. You can dress it up with a simple fabric topper tied with string or ribbon. A pot of coffee and good friends or family, and you are all set to welcome the new year!
