Christmas Party 2013

Each year my husband and I host a Christmas party for his staff and their families. We have a lot of fun doing this.

Today I thought I would share with you some food pictures from this year’s party. We keep the party pretty simple. There is always lots of food and fun, but we keep it pretty relaxed and simple.

I included links to all the recipes. All the recipes are quick and easy, so they would all be great if you need some ideas for Christmas or New Year’s.

We also had a vegetable tray and a meat and cheese platter that I set out after the pictures were taken.

I hope you enjoyed a food tour of our party. It really is possible to entertain, while keeping it pretty quick and easy. I made all the candy several days in advance, so the day of the party all I had to do was the dips and little smokies.

I also always buy holiday containers so that everyone gets to take plenty of candy home with them.

  1. It’s beautiful! You always have the greatest recipes! I also love the candle holders in the center.

    • Thanks! I bought those candle holders from and I love them. They will work great for all year long.

      • I’ve gotten a few things recently from DaySpring and am so thrilled with their products!
        I’m about to head to the kitchen to make some orange chocolates! :)
