Buffalo Grove, IL –   Hosting a New Year’s Eve party or New Year's Day open house shouldn't involve a lot of work on your part; so let me make your New Year's Day festivities easy and fun with these simple tips from

First, make your day easier by serving a one-pot meal and better yet use a crock pot to set it and forget it. Below, I share my mother's traditional black-eyed peas recipe.

Second, let your guest make their own beverages on a MYO Cockatil Bar. Feature your favorite day-time drinks or try my anytime favorites the Bloody Mary Bar or Champagne Cocktail Bar.

Finally, recycle the holiday decor and turn your wreaths and trees into wishing posts where family and friends write down a wish for the new year. No resolutions allowed - who sticks to them anyway...?

Put New Year’s crowns and hats on the Christmas tree and let guests grab them just before midnight.
