Skip the big, blow-out New Year's Eve party this year, opt out of the frenzy, and start the year in a more intimate fashion with a close group of friends and family. You can pay homage to this special night by sending invitations encouraging your guests to dress elegantly, and, of course, by toasting the occasion with plenty of Champagne.

Choose a selection of buffet appetizers like the Cherry Chutney Cheese Torte and little Roast Pork Sandwiches. As the party progresses, bring out different hot hors d'oeuvres. This helps to keep the party lively and your guests well fed throughout the evening as they nibble stuffed mushrooms, salmon skewers, and other tidbits. These mostly make-ahead dishes allow you to relax and enjoy the fun, too. Each recipe makes at least 12 servings, so you can mix and match dishes to suit the size of your party. For the perfect celebratory piece de resistance, serve the Chocolate Fondue at midnight. It is blissful paired with a glass of bubbly.
