A party that involves cupcakes... I'm in! I have so many precious memories of ringing in the New Year with friends and family at my parents house growing up. We would all get to together, play board games and eat finger foods until the ball dropped at midnight!
For this post, I wanted to include an activity for both kids and adults alike - A cupcake bar! Not only does it make for dessert, but also is a wonderful activity to keep your guests busy until midnight. Here are a few tips to help you create your own New Year's cupcake soiree!
We love options! Whether it be the cupcake flavor or the sprinkles on top, everyone loves getting to customize to their own taste. Here we kept it simple with vanilla or chocolate cupcakes, but gave seven options for sprinkles. Let's be honest, the sprinkles are always the best part! To make things really fun find some New Year's themed toppers, such as these disco balls that look just like the ball that drops in Times Square!
Pro tip: If your guests can restrain, decorate your cupcakes and then set them aside. When the countdown begins, light a candle on everyone's cupcake and blow it out at the New Year! How fun, right?!
