Your New Year’s Eve Party Guide

Whoa, that happened fast! 2019 is just upon us, can you believe it? Time to pack away all of the holiday decor, eat through the rest of the delicious leftovers, and of course, formulate a game plan for New Year’s Eve. Whether you’re throwing your own party or you’ve been invited to a friend’s or family member’s shindig, you’ll most likely be picking up some champagne, snacks, and/or party decor.

Here is your guide to all things New Year’s Eve!

01 Bubbles, lots and lots of Bubbles

Oh, do we have you covered with endless varieties of sparkling wine and champagne. From Brut to Roses to everything in between, you can pick your absolute favorite variety. And since we want you to really just choose the very best and not worry about price, many of our most-loved varietals are on sale this week too!

02 Oysters For Those Bubbles

What hors d’oeuvre goes better with champagne than fresh shucked, raw oysters with a side of lemon and mignonette? We can’t think of a better pairing. Pick from sweet and slightly briny Western oysters that have a delightful cucumber finish or the Eastern variety, which while generally smaller, offer even more wonderfully briny appeal.

03 Imported Cheese + Charcuterie

We can’t think of a better way to feed your New Year’s Eve party guests than with a giant cheese and charcuterie board. We have a huge variety of hard-to-find imported cheeses as well as seasonal cheese balls on sale. You can also find prosciutto, mortadella, liver mousse, and salami of all kinds to pair with your favorite cheeses. Finish off the board with briny olives, a sweet fig jam, and some crackers, crostini, or mini naan dippers – all sold in our cheese and deli department.
