  1. New Year's Champagne with Grapes

    Hide

    In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. 

    Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

  2. Can-Do Cans

    Hide

    Use our red, white, and blue designs to cover empty tin cans, then fill them with flowers (we chose sweet pea and veronica), utensils, breadsticks, and more.

  3. How-To

    Bedeviled Eggs

    Hide

    Putting a sinister face on party food takes nothing more than some simple sleight of hand -- and a bit of heat. Mix up deviled eggs using your favorite recipe, and add a dash of cayenne and some hot sauce for kick. Then bring them to life with pointed facial features: Triangles of red bell pepper and dark green scallions make horns and a goatee; snipped chives form a skinny 'stache.

  4. How-To

    Spider Spears

    Hide

    Cut the bugs off plastic spider rings, then puncture their centers with an awl or a T-pin. Insert the toothpick into the hole from the bottom, and color the exposed tip with a marker.
