How to throw an adult christmas party

The holidays are a busy busy time for most people. If you're in the mood to have a party, make sure that it's an affair your friends and family will want to pencil into their calendars. Because they know you have good taste in drinks, appetizers, dinner, decorations, and dessert! And that you throw a heck of a party. Appetizers Tell your guests to come hungry and then set the mood with these festive bites. Cranberry Baked Brie Cranberry baked brie brings out the colors and flavors of the season and is an absolutely delicious appetizer you should make. Not only is it easy (you only have to buy a wheel of brie and melt it in the oven), but it's also hot and will warm up your guests right away. Sprinkle a wheel of brie with brown sugar and dried cranberries. Then, set out rosemary crackers, rye bread crisps, or even cinnamon Graham Crackers to complement the decadent, melty, and rich brie. Here's a tip: use pine bough clippings as a garnish to add an extra holiday element to this dish. Chef-in-training.com Rosemary Cheese And Olive Platter This gorgeous cheese and olive platter is set on a wreath of rosemary-so it looks incredibly Christmas appropriate and scrumptious! If you have a rosemary bush in your back yard, clip off some sprigs and line them up in a circular pattern on a dish (making sure you tuck in the blunt ends). Then, dot the top with cheese cubes and olives. Throw some candied nuts and figs on too for a variety of flavors, colors, and textures. Homeiswheretheboatis.net Pizza Stockings Use some puff pastry, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and basil for these stocking-shaped pizza bites. Everyone loves a hot appetizer at a party and because yours will be thematic with Christmas, it will make it all the more special. Pillsbury.com Drinks Toast to yourself-the hostess with the mostest-this Christmas with these festive cocktails and drink ideas. Vodka Trees Jell-O shots aren't the classiest, but these vodka-infused Christmas trees are. Make some Jell-O and let it set in a deep jelly roll pan. Once it's cooled and taken shape, use a tree cookie cutter to create these vodka Jell-O jigglers. Top them with shredded coconut for a faux snow effect or sprinkles for added spirit. Cookingpanda.com Holiday Sangria The cranberries and rosemary sprig in this sangria really set it apart from other summer varieties. Make a big pitcher or punch bowl with red or white wine and then get ready with garnishes for all of the guests who want to indulge in this sweet treat. Cakenknife.com Candy Cane Cocktails These are technically shooters, but we just love the idea of the peppermint rim. Crush up some peppermint candies or candy canes and get your glasses ready. You can try this recipe, or get even more holiday friendly by using virgin or alcoholic egg nog. There's another recipe with Peppermint Schnapps, Godiva liqueur, and more yumminess that also looks awesome and would go well with peppermint. Anightowlblog.com Entertainment Now that you have the appetizers and drinks down, make sure you have a line-up of fun activities to do while everyone is over celebrating the holidays. Reverse Christmas Charades This game is a real hoot. Gather all of your party guests and break up into teams. Then, have everyone write Christmas-themed answers on pieces of paper (like Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Clause, North Pole, The Grinch) and have the whole team act it out while one person tries to guess. It's hilarious and something everyone will love. Lifeofahomeschoolmom.com Secret Stocking Instead of secret Santa, try Secret Stocking. All you have to do is make a stocking, seal it shut, and have everyone write down what they think is inside. The guest with the closest guess wins whatever is in the stocking. We love this game because it can be silly or serious. Plus, there are a ton of other great Christmas game ideas on the same link too.

It's so simple, it shouldn't take you more than an hour to finish. Here's a tip: drill holes and string lights around the perimeter of the star for a holiday light fixture! Bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com Stocking Place Settings Get your guests to the holiday dinner table with these stocking place settings. You should be able to find small stockings that will fit your silverware at the dollar store, so it's a cheap and quick way to add an extra design piece to your table. Go for traditional red for every seat or mix and match for a whimsical look. Justimagine-ddoc.com Merry Mantel You don't have to go green and red for it to be a Christmas decoration. This winter-inspired mantel's whites and silvers set the tone of the holiday just as well. Use some cotton balls for faux snow, string clear lights around the top of your mantel, and then embellish it with beautiful stockings and metallic decorations.
