Holiday Party Guide

Matthew and I went to our first Christmas Open House a few nights ago and I'm still recovering from the abundance of food and overflowing wine! So good.  So not good on a weeknight!  Anyway, as I look at my December calendar I am always amazed at just full it gets.  Not every party we get to attend is a just show up looking pretty kind of event so I thought I'd round up some fun alternatives for the go-to bottle of wine and cheese plate.  Now y'all know I love a good cheese plate, but we do that around here on the regular so it's fun to kick it up a notch in the spirit of the holidays.  I shared my favorite way to build a cheese tray here if you're interested.  As for clothes, pink and sparkly is my theme of the season.  It feels so festive and much more fun than a little black dress!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I am hosting a holiday favorite things party for my girlfriends next weekend and planned to serve this Christmas sangria. But, I am stumped on heavy appetizers!

  2. My mom and I make a white Christmas sangria each year and love it! I also found a neat brussell sprout and cranberry recipe on Pinterest to try out this year. My favorite appy is the Southern Living cream cheese ball with red pepper jelly.

  3. Oh I am putting that Sangria on my Christmas brunch menu...yummy!!!

  4. I love this place. Regardless of the time of your event, you always get the same thing: reasonable drink prices, great decoration, & friendly staff.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
