 New Years Eve Party DecorationsIt’s New Year’s Eve and you’re in charge of the party decorations. What will you do this year to really make the event fun and memorable? Go non-traditional and you will find that guests go wild. The Hawaiian Luau Sure, you can have streamers and traditional hats. But this year, you can really dazzle the crowd by having a theme.

If you have many ethnicities in your groups of friends, you might want to know what not to serve in addition to what’s best to serve. What Not to Serve If you want to keep the superstitious friends in your crowd happy, don’t serve lobster.

Also avoid serving chicken or any other bird so that any luck that does come your way won’t fly out the window. You may laugh at such silliness, but there are many cultures that still believe in traditions like these. And don’t expect Read more
