Every person around the world has various concepts of ways to spend the New Year celebration. A couple of people prefer a simple night at their house with their loved ones. A few would go downtown for a wild evening of partying. Some invite their relatives and friends to celebrate the New Year with style and glamour.  

If you plan to invite a lot of people over to your house, you’ll probably need help preparing enough food. This is where a caterer comes in to help. 

However, what food should a Gainesville FL caterer prepare for you? Here are a couple of things to consider: 


You can prepare your guest the feeling of quick fullness if you let them eat appetizers before meals. A couple of appetizers you should consider for your New Year’s Eve include: 

  • Bruschetta with Basil and Tomatoes 

Think about having Bruschetta topped with chopped tomatoes and sweet basil. This will make your New Year’s Eve more elegant. You can prepare this meal a day in advance as well.  

  • Butternut Squash 

This is a creamy appetizer best for a traditional dinner on New Year’s Eve. All you need are thinly sliced carrots, chopped onion, and butternut squash to create a flavorful and rich vegetable soup. 

Main Course Meal 

The ideal way to pick the main course meal for your party is to choose a set of flavors or a theme to base around your meal. 

  • Hot Salami Pizza 

If you want a pizza party menu, consider getting a hot Salami pizza grilled to deliciousness with cured meats and sweet peppers. This makes for an excellent main course.  

While they’re tasty at any time of the year, you’ll probably like them more during New Year’s Eve. 

  • Tangy Molasses Barbeque Ribs 

This meal is perfect for a BBQ party during New Year’s Eve. It’s a tender brisket. Tangy mustard and wheat beer add a huge flavor to your BBQ ribs. You should think about serving this dish with a homemade BBQ sauce to get the most out of your night. 

Side Dishes 

One excellent way to introduce vegetables and fruit into your diet is to add one or more side dishes. A couple of side dishes to consider during New Year’s Eve include: 

  • Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus 

Wrapping thin slices of provolone cheese and prosciutto around fresh asparagus is an easy but delicious side dish for a New Year’s Eve party. Your guests will be delighted when they eat this. 

  • Bacon-Topped Green Bean Casserole 

Do you want your green bean casserole to be more special during New Year’s Eve? If so, consider adding a couple of wild mushrooms and bacon strips.  

If you don’t like mushroom, you can use mashed potatoes instead.  


When it comes to desserts, you’ve got two options to choose from for your New Year’s Eve celebration. You can serve Homemade Butterscotch Meringue Pie or Apple Pie with Cheddar Cheese Crust.  

If you don’t know how to create these desserts, a professional catering company can make them for you. This will help you focus on other elements of your party.
