Christmas Party Recap

I've been absent on the blog for much of the holidays, but I hope you had a wonderful time with family and friends! We have been very busy for almost 2 weeks with parties, visiting family, and traveling. Here are some pictures from our annual Christmas party that we threw before Christmas!
For drinks, we had a bar set up in the kitchen with a his and hers cocktail station, along with wine and festive jello shots. I wrote the drink menu on the chalkboard in the kitchen.  The cocktails were both very popular, but the maple old fashioned was a hit with all of the guys! The jello shots that I made were a modification of these jello shots from a couple of years ago, but made with tequila and cointreau instead of vodka. They had just enough tequila to taste like a margarita but not too much ;).

For food, here's what we had, including links to some of the recipes:
MENU
Chili Lime Shrimp Cups
Stuffed Mushrooms
Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites (similar to this, cooked in phyllo shells)Pigs in a Blanket
Slow Roasted Tomato Bruschetta (recipe coming soon!)
Veggies and Knorr Spinach Dip
Hummus and Pita
Raspberry Brie Bites
Christmas Cookies with Royal Icing
Assorted Macarons via Trader Joe's

We had so much fun with everyone! Here are some pictures from the party.
We love hosting this party every year! It's always a great group of people and a wonderful chance to catch up with friends who live out of town!
