Starting the New Year Off Right with the Square

From party essentials to healthy resolutions, visit Belvedere Square this weekend to make this year’s celebration your best yet.


So, you made it through the holiday season! Treat yourself this weekend, and close out 2017 in style with delicious food, spirits and décor for your New Year’s celebrations. And what is New Year’s Eve without champagne? Pick up a bottle of bubbles—as well as wine to enjoy with dinner—or get together with friends for a pre-game handcrafted cocktail at Grand Cru.

The food you serve can make or break your party, so make sure it is delicious and local. Visit The Market and pick up fresh baked goods, organic meats, seafood, artisanal cheeses and more—it all comes straight from the farm to your party’s table.

Looking for a tasty, yet healthy addition to your party’s menu? Check out Hex Ferments—their kombucha and krauts are tangy, flavorful and provide a revitalizing boost after the excesses of the holidays. And while you’re at it, stop by The Dutch Floral Garden, where you can pick up a bright and beautiful arrangement of local and exotic florals for your banquet table.
