New Years Eve Tree

CATEGORIES: New Years, Sara

I’ll be honest.  It’s still vacation, and I’m still not writing and photographing recipes.  What I am doing is enjoying some much needed time off visiting with out-of-town family, playing games with my kids, snuggling my 2 month old baby, and not checking social media every 5 minutes throughout the day.  I will re-surface next week, but for now I wanted to leave you with a link to my family’s favorite New Years tradition!  My kids look forward to this every year, so go check out the details on our New Year’s Tree, and leave a comment here on this post with your favorite tradition!

  1. I love this tradition and can’t wait to start it with my growing family. I will be adding it to the tradition of drinking Martinelli’s at midnight and banging pots and pans to ring in the new year.

  2. Our only tradition is to be home well before people start doing their New Years Eve stuff. Last year by 9:00 I was snuggled up in my chair wearing slippers that looked like nurse shoes, my husb was up in the attic hammering something and our dog was licking her bed. An ideal New Year’s, I’d say.

  3. I love reading about your New Years Tree every year and totally plan to do that when I have kids!

    We spent last week in a different province with my in-laws, so my husband and I are celebrating “Christmas” and exchanging presents on New Years Eve, just the two of us. I’m thinking that this may become a tradition for the years that we aren’t home on Christmas.

  4. We have our friends over on New Year’s Eve. We started the New Year’s tree 2 years and ago and everyone loves it…and we’re all adults except for my 9-year-old daughter. We make fondue, write our predictions for the upcoming year and play the games. Can’t wait for another great year.

  5. We love doing a new year’s tree! Last year we had my son’s birthday party on new year’s eve and did the tree for his birthday. We had a bunch of 13-14 year old boys popping balloons and telling each other the silly jokes that were inside. They loved it.

    I’m looking forward to your other new year/January tradition of posting lots of healthy recipes.

    Enjoy the vacation time with your family. We are loving ours!

  6. We haven’t had an New Years traditions in the ten years I’ve been married! This sounds so fun I think I will try it this year. When I was a kids my favorite was the cheese ball we always had with Chicken in a Biscuit crackers… I’d skip those crackers now, but tasty cream cheese? Sign me up!

  7. This is so cute! What a fun tradition. We just had our third December baby this year. (!!!!) I have always wanted a second tree to have as a birthday tree. And now I know what to do with it after Christmas and birthdays are done. A New Year’s tree! Next year. 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

  8. We do this every year sinceI read your post! My kids LOVE it!!! It is soooo easy, cheap, and fun and has become a tradition in our house that our kiddos look forward to! If you guys out there haven’t tried this yet, go to the dollar store and grab a few supplies today!
