So, what is everyone doing for NYE?
We're having a small gathering at our place, and I'm trying to work out whether to just do a BBQ, or something more fancy. We'll have more kids than adults, so it certainly won't be too fancy!
Any NYE inspiration you want to share?

We haven't got anu kids coming to our NYE (there just aren't any yet) and we're doing a Meze/Tapas style dinner. Each guest is bringing one or two plates to share and I'm making homemade pizzas and making a dips platter.

That sounds like a good idea, SophieBeagle. Always easier if everyone chips in.
I have been thinking about what to serve, and I think I've decided on a cheese plate to start with, followed by a BBQ (steak, sausages, homemade bread rolls, crunchy noodle salad and this pumpkin salad .) Followed by Nigella's chocolate pavlova and homemade icecream for dessert. And mango daiquiris to drink.
I think that should do us

We're going to a barbeque. I've promised the kids prawn skewers and I think I'll do a pumpkin salad of some sort as well.

We're doing a BBQ too. Everyone is bringing a salad. I'm doing the meat, potato bake, garlic bread.
Making a pavlova and cupcakes for the kids.
Should be a good night!

We are having a BBQ too.
I am making potato bake, garden salad, caeser salad and Rocket, pear and Parmasen salad. Its BYO meat. I am also making Pav with whipped cream and berries on top (I plan to stay away from this )
