Snippets of My Christmas Party

Jacob and I have decided that we want to be the annual Christmas party type of people, so I started small this year and held a Christmas crafting party for a few friends.  We all worked on our Christmas gift projects we had yet to finish while eating delicious food and enjoying each other's company!

And in case you would like some more Christmas inspiration for future use, I've included information on where I got some of the ideas for food and decor and such.

Do you have any tried and true Christmas ideas?  Anything that has been a big hit this holiday season that others should know about?

  1. All your food looks amazing! I've wanted to try the chocolate dipped oranges for a while and just haven't gotten around to actually doing it. I may just run out to the store and grab the supplies this evening now that I see yours. I love the idea of doing a holiday crafting party, it looks like loads of fun. Happy Holidays!

  2. Yummers!!!! Your holiday spread looks so, so fabulously delicious! The mini potatoes in particular are calling my name. :) What a fantastic tradition (hosting a holiday party) to establish so early on in your married life. My (biological) parents always threw one when we were little and I loved watching my mom get ready for it and then all the stylishly attired grownups arrive and mingle against a backdrop of appetizers and classic Christmas tunes.

    I love being the annual party type too! Patrick and I hosted an annual Halloween party for the longest time! But our friends were always so scattered during the holidays, that we never got around to hosting a holiday party! Looks like you had a lot going on at yours!
