New Years Eve Party Ideas

New Years Eve is a time for going out with the old and in with the new. The party symbolizes new beginnings so start off the year with a bang with some fun New Years Eve party ideas! There's no need to break bank when planning a party for the New Year. Here are some great ways you can have an elegant, enjoyable party without spending too much cash.
Party Supplies
Some fun and inexpensive party supplies that are perfect for New Year celebrations include hats, leis, noise makers, party poppers, tiaras, and streamers. You can even purchase a package of New Year party items based on your budget. The most inexpensive packages of New Years Eve party supplies are in the $25 to $27 range. And of course you can't have a New Year celebration without decorating with some balloons. Better yet, you can get a balloon drop bag. Balloon drop bags are very inexpensive and come with a release cord. They serve as a great decoration as well as a colorful way to usher in the New Year!
New Years Eve Party Ideas
If you want to do something unique this New Year, consider planning your party around a theme. Some fun themes include masquerades, hat parties, 80s retro parties, and pajama parties. Choosing a theme also makes it a lot easier for you to decorate. For example, for an 80s retro party you can decorate the house with 80s memorabilia like posters from teeny bopper magazines and neon colored streamers. Of course you would listen to 80s music all night and the guests would dress up in 80s outfits. You can also sit down together earlier in the night to watch classic 80s movies like Sixteen Candles and Flashdance.
If you would really like to keep costs and planning to a minimum without sacrificing elegance, adorn your home with sparkly d├ęcor, dim the lights, and serve yummy appetizers. You can create a centerpiece by adding some water to a large bowl, lighting votive candles, and letting them float on the water. To keep guests entertained before countdown, play a classic party game like Charades. Another fun game involves having everyone write their resolutions on small slips of paper and putting them in a bowl. Each person has to take one of the slips, read the resolution out loud, and guess whose resolution it is.
For added elegance, place individual servings of food in martini glasses. Some dishes you can serve that are inexpensive yet chic include chocolate fondue, pasta salad, cocktail cookies, and pesto cream cheese with crackers. There are a multitude of different cocktails you can make with champagne and there is no need to buy an expensive bottle of bubbly. "Real" champagne must be produced in the Champagne region of France. However, there's no need to buy real champagne if you are on a budget. Brut is an economical alternative that is just as delicious. Some great tasting, elegant cocktails you can make with inexpensive champagne include the mimosa and the raspberry sparkler. To make a mimosa, all you have to do is add orange juice to a glass of champagne. To make a raspberry sparkler, add a dash of raspberry liquor and a few fresh raspberries to a glass of champagne.
Keep these tips in mind when planning your next New Year celebration. There is no need to spend lots of money purchasing expensive New Years Eve party supplies, decorations, food, and champagne. Create an elegant yet affordable celebration by adding these simple touches to your upcoming New Year's party!

The Day After Christmas

There was a time I would become overwhelmed with a lot of leftover food. Not any more. I actually plan to cook extra for Christmas dinner so I can play with the leftovers the next day or two. If I am having ham I will cook extra potatoes so I can make a tasty potato and ham salad the following day. I just cube some ham and potatoes, chop some onion and celery. boil a few eggs and I have the ingredients for salad. I will make a creamy mustard dressing and decorate the salad with radish slices and green pepper rings.
Sometimes I make scalloped potatoes if I do not have cooked ones. I just slice raw potatoes, onions and ham, layer them in a buttered casserole dish, season with salt and pepper and bake until the potatoes are soft. While they are baking I make either a white sauce or a cheese sauce to pour over the casserole when it comes out of the oven.
I also like a pasta ham salad. I cook bowtie pasta and combine it with cubed ham, frozen green peas, cherry tomatoes, slices of red sweet onion and grated cheddar cheese. I make either a creamy slaw type dressing or an apple cider vinegar dressing or both and people can take their pick.
Of course ham is great for breakfast too. I chop it up fine and add it to pancake batter. Real tasty served with eggs and maple syrup. They call them Christmas hamcakes. There are a lot of different dishes to make from ham, so experiment, you may surprise yourself, I did.
Everything I write about is from personal observation and life experiences. I love to cook and prepare foods in different ways. I like sharing my experiences about food and cooking. My website was created because of my interest in quality cookware and cooking.

The Origin of Christmas Caroling

The tradition of Christmas caroling has been around for a very long time. It is a tradition that many people love, young and old alike. It is a way to spread the holiday spirit without spending a lot of money. It is also a way to lift the spirits of those that can not get out and about during the holiday season, such as those confined to nursing homes. Christmas caroling is also used as a way to raise money for charities during the holiday season. How did such a heartwarming tradition begin? Well the answer to that is a bit sketchy.
Some say Christmas caroling was originally started by groups of drunken men and boys looking for a handout. They would go house-to-house singing folk songs or traditional drinking songs in exchange for money or a drink. While it is unknown if this actually happened, it is unlikely that caroling, as we know it, originated from an act that was so selfish.
Another account of how Christmas caroling originated involves a small child named Carol Poles. Carol was supposedly reported missing from London in 1888 during which time the serial killer Jack the Ripper was on the loose. This was a great cause of concern for family and friends of the little girl as well as those that were searching for her. Legend has it, that those that were searching for the little girl would sing Christmas carols as they went house to house, knocking on each door. They did so in an effort to ease the worried residents and to show that the search party meant no harm to them. It is said that Christmas caroling continued from that time on. This account has pretty much been proven to be a myth because Charles Dickens story, A Christmas Carol, which had been written 50 years earlier, tells of people going door to door singing Christmas carols.
The most believable account of the origins of Christmas caroling takes place in England in the 1840's. After Prince Albert of Germany married Victoria of England, the English peasants were eager to please and impress the newly married royal family. After reading in a newspaper that Prince Albert thoroughly enjoyed Christmas carols, the peasants starting serenading him with them. Caroling has been a tradition ever since. It is said that the Methodists and Lutherans brought a modified version of this tradition to America. The American tradition of caroling involves traveling carolers being offered food and drinks after being welcomed into the homes that they were serenading.
Even though we do not know for sure how Christmas caroling began, it is a tradition that is still loved by many. It is a heartwarming way to let people know you are thinking of them. It also tends to awaken the Christmas spirit in those that are listening.

She Has Sexy Christmas Ideas

Steamy Christmas costumes can be a good way to get your mind off buying gifts, traffic jams, and low checking account balances.
The build up to Christmas can be a hectic time with all the parties, family gatherings, school, spiritual, and community events. The fast and furious activities of the few holiday weeks is filled with stress, anxiety, and overwhelming tasks. But, through it all, couples need to maintain communicating and involve intimacy, perhaps more than any other time of the year.
Many couples reserve Christmas Eve for their own private time. Enticing a holiday spirit can be as easy as adding role-playing to your personal time. The stockings that are hung with care, can be filled by with erotic clothing and stimulation gifts from a naughty Santa. Many couples give their partners colorful fun-filled stockings overflowing with gifts from a naughty elf, on Christmas Eve.
Before digging into the stocking to see what Santa has left for you, shower, shave, powder and perfume! Put on something other than baggy sweats and worn out slippers. Dress the part, 4-inch stilettos and a thong might sweeten the look! Put on some mood enhancing music and erotic music, light the candles, and pour the wine. Get the kids tucked in their beds, this is your time to visit with Santa!
Begin the Santa tease with an entrance that will get his attention. Keep the emphasis on 'tease' and do whatever gets you in the mood, no matter how naughty. Sitting just so, crossing your legs just so, and bending to pick up a piece of lint, only to flash a bit of skin can be most enticing.
Some men fantasize about costumed lovers. For instance, a French Maid get up can provide opportunities for Santa to indulge his eyes and thoughts while watching her prepare dinner, decorating the tree or bending over to get something from the floor. Displaying smooth skin and sexy curves can open negotiations for many special holiday bonuses.
Some men prefer women in authority. For these frisky Santas, military, doctors, school teachers, police, or executive-type costumes might get their attention. How better to surprise your Santa by taking control of the evening's events? Take him into your custody with handcuffs, blindfolds, or erotic spanking toys. Probe, search and lavish his body with kisses, and watch as he squirms with an erect 21 gun salute!
Has Santa been a naughty boy this year? Put little hints in his stocking that indicate Santa had better fulfill your wishes or he may suffer consequences. Small items like a collar and leash and blindfold should give him the message. Especially, if you wear some lace and leather lingerie while carrying a leather whip! Leather has a mysterious way of getting things into the mood for an evening of domination.
Holiday role playing can be a great stress reliever by providing an escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy and demanding season. Add a relaxing dinner and some red wine to the scenario, and let Christmas Eve take you wherever you want to go. After all, the spirit of Christmas is all about giving, right? But a little stocking filled with fun gifts might be more about receiving!
Don't just sit on the sidelines and envy others with six pack abs. Building your own six pack is not as unrealistic as you might think. Go to and begin to create your own six-pack abs! Not only will you look better, but you will be stronger, more flexible, and have increased energy.

How To Stay Jolly During the Holidays

Get Frisky During the Holidays - 10 Randy Reasons to Have More Sex

Expert Author Michael Kortekaas
With all the hustle and bustle during the holidays, many couples tend to overlook their own pleasure. The spirit of giving should apply to yourself and your relationship as well. Not in a selfish way of course, but rather as a way to enhance your bond together so that you have even more joy and happiness to share. The holidays provide the perfect opportunity to get frisky with each other and have more intimate fun together. Here are 10 randy reasons to enjoy more sex during the holidays:
  1. You have more time to leisurely enjoy deeper levels of intimacy. Luxuriate in the subtle sensual pleasures of prolonged foreplay as you creatively explore each others' mind and body.
  2. When you have great sex you are happier with each other and toward other people. You will radiate a warm glow that will touch everyone you meet. You will indirectly share your love for each other and add more cheer to the holiday season.
  3. Adapt the 12 Days of Christmas concept into a creative challenge to have different sexual experiences 12 days in a row. Plan unique sex play ideas together in advance or spontaneously surprise your lover with a totally new sensual delight each day. Bonus points if you can include all activities from previous days building toward a spectacular climax. Keep the erotic fires burning through the holidays.
  4. Create lasting memories with a special new relationship building tradition just for the two of you. It can be simple and sweet such as slow dancing naked at midnight while kissing under mistletoe or extravagant like having sex together in a different city or country every year. Give yourself something naughty or nice to look forward to all year long.
  5. Plan a private, more intimate gift giving time with distinctly erotic intentions. Surprise each other with unique or exotic luxury love toys and accessories that convey how much you treasure the pleasures you share together.
  6. Get ready for an evening out two hours early then ravish each other while dressed up and looking your best. Have sex while partially clothed to make it even more exciting. Even if just a quickie, your sexy tryst will have you eagerly anticipating more fun when you return home. Also, it is a good reason to drink in moderation so you can keep your private after party going all night.
  7. Sex burns off calories and is an excellent exercise when done vigorously for extended periods. Enjoy feasting while knowing you will need the energy later to keep up with each other. Hot & sticky sexercise sessions for at least 20 minutes three times a week can be great for your health.
  8. Schedule time for sensual stress relief to break up the hectic holiday festivities. Great sex is an excellent way to melt away stress. Multiple sex therapy sessions during the day may be in order. If you don't think you have time for sex, reconsider, make it a priority and you will be amazed how good you feel.
  9. Savor chocolates, sweet liquors and other deliciously succulent holiday foods while thinking of naughty ways to incorporate them into your sex play. Secretly flirt and tempt each other with decadent ideas of oral arousal. Everything will taste even better when you whet your erotic appetite for each other.
  10. Challenge each other to have a simultaneous orgasm at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve. You may want to rehearse frequently before the big event to get the timing right.
Sexual intimacy is essential to a healthy, loving relationship. Regardless of your reasons, take advantage of any opportunity you can to make love. During this holiday season, show how much you appreciate the one you love by spending more intimate time enjoying each other. Your gift of loving pleasure will be treasured. Make pleasure a priority and enjoy great sex together as often as you can what ever your reason.

Great Foreplay Ideas

5 of the Hottest Foreplay Games and Ideas For a Night of Sexual Ecstasy

We all know that foreplay is one of the biggest factors in having an enjoyable sexual experience, for both men and women.
Unfortunately, all too often we forget about this and need to be reminded. Let's face it, it's not hard for things to get in the way - work, kids, family, college, whatever it is, there's always going to be something that makes finding the time for good foreplay difficult.
Good sex, though, can definitely help reduce stress, make us healthier, and all around more-adjusted people. It's also the cornerstone of a successful relationship, and good foreplay is the cornerstone of good sex.
But you probably already know this. After all, you're here, reading this article.
The hard part for many couples is keeping the foreplay fresh and interesting. We tend to fall into a sexual routine that leaves us dissatisfied pretty easily. Therefore, we have to consciously work at continually trying new and interesting things to keep things exciting and interesting.
If you're having a hard time coming up with killer foreplay ideas, then I've got just the cure - a list of my X favorite foreplay games that you can quickly and easily use tonight to have some absolutely killer sex.
1. Tasty Treats
Food is a fantastic way to spice things up in the bedroom. After all, it's something we all have in our house, so it's cheap and accessible. Try coating your lover's body with whipped cream, and licking it off slowly and sensually. You could also try getting your partner to close their eyes and run fruit over their bodies, paying attention to their curves, before finally bringing it sexily up to their mouth. Strawberries, for example, are great for this.
2. Try a Blindfold
Being deprived of our sense of sight makes everything feel much more vivid. For this reason, try blindfolding (and possibly tying up, if you feel comfortable with the idea) your partner and slowly kissing them in various places. For maximum effect, avoid their "privates", but feel free to kiss and lick very sexily NEAR them - I guarantee this will drive them wild!
3. Be a Teenager Again
Remember when you were a teenager and you and your girlfriend used to just make out for hours on end? Try doing the same thing now. For best effect, leave your clothes on until you are both so incredibly aroused you can't bear it anymore. This usually will result in intense, explosive lovemaking, which is an experience that we usually don't get to have.
4. The Best Number In The World
Try a sixty-nine. For those of you who may not be familiar with the term, it's when both of you go down on each other simultaneously. It tends to have an energy building effect - the more pleasure you feel, the more you will give, and the more you will receive.
5. Tell a Bedtime Story 
Talking dirty to your partner either before or during the sex is one of the most sexually powerful things you can do. Do they have a fantasy they want to act out? You can roleplay, or just get them to lie back and paint a sexy picture in their mind. Mix this with passionate touches and kisses for best results.
