Get Ready for the New Year!

You're most likely in one of three camps for New Year's Eve:

1: You're hosting a rockin' NYE party, but you haven't started prepping.

2: You kinda, sorta want to host a small get-together, but you think it's too late. (It's not!)

3: You're headed out to enjoy festivities at the home of friends or family.

Regardless of which camp you fall into, time is of the essence! With only three days until the official 2021 countdown, here are a few hosting hacks to make sure your soiree goes off without a hitch or you don't show up empty-handed to the party.

There is just enough time to elevate your cocktail game with this Hello Sunshine infusion kit that is ready to make 7-8 orange flavored cocktails. Simply add your favorite alcohol to the jar, wait 3 days for the flavors to infuse, and then enjoy. Pass around a box of Eat Your Drink alcoholic gummies for everyone to sample (adults only)!


Delicious apps are the key to a successful party! Mix up one of the easy-to-make Wind & Willow Dip Mixes and serve with Stonewall Kitchen Dipping Pretzels or mix up some of the Missouri-made Crackalacka Cracker seasoning for a quick and tasty treat.  Create a vegetarian charcuterie board with Fig Salami and Peppercorn Parmesan dip and crudité.


Heading out for the evening? Grab a Demdaco Wine Bag and Stopper and bottle of wine for the perfect host(ess) gift and the Ridley's Movie Buff Quiz to add fun game time to the evening! Keep the kiddos busy with Dog Gonnit – a game that teaches kids real life dog care skills. 

Plus, Smockingbird's after-Christmas sale begins today! Christmas ornaments, decor, and greenery are 50% off. If shopping on line, use code HOLIDAYSALE at checkout. We’ll be there 10am-5pm on Dec. 28-30, and 10am-2pm on Dec. 31.
