A New Year’s to Remember

The end of the year is nearly here which means that if you haven’t started planning for how you’re going to ring in the new year that now is as perfect of a time as any! Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of money in order to create the best memories, but it does mean that that the more thought and creativity that is put into things, the better start to 2017 you’ll have.

Here are the steps to creating a memorable new year’s eve:

“Keep things cozy and host a party at home

(Unless you really want to ring in the new year out somewhere fancy, in which case we recommend Origin Trade!)

No need to go out and rent a space for your party. Hosting at your house or apartment is not only affordable, it’s also more comfortable for both you and your guests. It also  gives you the opportunity to actually enjoy the party yourself and connect with all your guests. Limit the invite list to a handful of close friends.

Ask everyone to bring their favourite drink

This strategy can also liven up the party by giving guests a variety of new drinks to try. Also, know in advance how everyone who has been drinking plans to get safely back home. Is public transportation available? Is someone a designated driver? Or can guests crash at your place for the night? Don’t wait until 1 a.m. to decide how to handle an obviously impaired guest.”

Most importantly make sure that the menu is fresh, varied and delicious (which is where we can help out greatly). Whether you plan on snacks and lighter fare (cheese boards/charcuterie, Jamaican patties, etc) for your guests to nibble on, or want to go all out for a full and hearty meal, we have everything you need to ensure that it will be a success.

The Piggy Market family wishes you and yours a safe happy and healthy end to 2016 and start to 2017!
