2017 is quickly coming to an end and Great Plains Communications wants to help you throw an amazing welcome party for 2018. Forget fighting the bitter cold weather that Old Man Winter seems to throw our way each New Year’s Eve and snuggle in with friends and family and our favorite party tips from cable channel, HGTV.

3 Easy Party Mix Recipes

It is always good to have some simple snacks you can place around the room for your guests as they arrive and settle in. With these three recipes, you will be sure to please the sweet, spicy, and salty cravings of the group.


3 No-Bake 5-Minute Appetizers

Sticking to easy access finger foods will allow guests to eat with drink in hand and continue to mingle around the room. With these quick no-bake and better yet, no-stress recipes there is no hassle of silverware or dirtying any dishes other than the ones you serve them in.


Champagne Jelly Shots

These champagne jelly shots are not only adorable, but they pack an additional surprise in the popping candy topper. Just add your favorite champagne, some agave syrup, and water to some plain gelatin and this party treat is sure to be a favorite. If you don’t want the popping candy, try adding your favorite fresh fruit pieces before chilling.


DIY Balloon Photo Booth Prop

Add a little extra fun to your party with this DIY balloon photo booth prop. You can truly make it specific to your style by changing up the colors of balloons, flowers and arrangement. As you can see in the video, they use PEX tubing and a connector for their base, but if you can’t find these items or just happen to have an extra hula hoop lying around it could easily be substituted in.


Great Plains Communications would like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year!
