New Years 2016 Party Ideas, Games and Food

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

Who is ready for 2016??  To be honest, I am not entirely sure I am but it's going to make its way here whether I am or not.  This year, I did something I don't normally do and that is put away most of our Christmas decorations a few days after Christmas.  We usually wait until after New Years Day to put them away but I wanted to put up silver, gold and 2016 New Years decorations because it is going to be a big year for us.  To help ring in the celebration, I've been hunting down some New Years party ideas, games and decor.  Here are some you  may want to incorporate in your celebration, as well.
