2016 Holiday Party

Last night, we hosted a really fun and festive holiday party and had lots of friends from work and school and my brother and cousins. Like past years, we did a big spread of food and had LOTS of cocktails.....we just bought a new bar cart and it was the perfect addition to our holiday soirée. Here was the menu:

Drinks

  • Owen's Mules and Palomas - these also served as great mock-tails for all of my coworkers who are pregnant!
  • Wine and beer
Food
  • Honey glazed ham with mini dinner rolls and honey mustard
  • Pumpkin gnocchi and sage butter (just purchased the gnocchi from Raffetto's and served them on toothpicks)
  • Party hot dogs
  • Goat cheese, fig jam, prosciutto, and basil crostinis
  • Baked brie (I just warmed it in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes and served it with sliced bread)
  • Veggie train - this was by far the most adorable veggie display ever!
  • Teriyaki meatballs
  • Cheesy garlic bites
Desserts
Decor
  • We had our mini Christmas tree and kept things simple
  • I have red and green cloth napkins that I folded in the shape of Christmas trees :)
  • I had one vase filled with two bags of cranberries and white hydrangeas
  • Candy cane food displays
  • Our new bar cart!
