New Year’s Party Appetizer Ideas
Appetizers are such fun foods to prepare no matter what type of party you’re hosting, but especially over the holidays. For some reason food tastes better when it’s tiny. Or maybe that’s because we feel we can eat more of it when it’s finger-sized.
Here are some ideas to get your New Year’s party off to a great start, especially at the appetizer table.
Crescent Roll Ideas
You know what a crescent roll is, but did you know that you can make all sorts of holiday appetizers and snacks with it? Here are some ideas for your party:
- Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish – you can always substitute the blueberry pie filling with cherry pie filling to make this recipe more seasonal.
- Barbecue Chicken Pizza Pinwheels by Yellow Bliss Road
- Pesto, Roasted Red Pepper, and Cheese Crescent Rolls by Two Peas And Their Pod
- Mini Cheese And Onion Pastries by Melanie Makes
These are almost a tradition in some parts of the country. Plus, they’re super-easy to make.. You can use hot sausage to make them spicy or you can use only mild if you prefer.
You can also experiment with different types of cheese.
Cheese and Meat Trays
This is a super-easy way to put out snacks and appetizers for the holidays. Just put a variety of cheese, meats, fruit, chutney, bread, and crackers on a tray. A meat and cheese tray is one of the easiest, classic appetizer options to put together.

Making a cheese ball is simple. You literally just put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together, then form into the shape you desire and refrigerate. It makes cheese more festive and infuses delicious flavors depending on the recipe you use.

- Mediterranean Cheese Ball Bites by Sprinkle Bakes
- Caprese Skewers – technically not a cheese ball, but mozzarella balls are used and this is a family favorite.
