Invite neighbors and friends from all your social circles to drop by for a casual and relaxed gathering. A beautiful and festive atmosphere complete with tasty pickup fare is sure to get everyone into the spirit of the season.
Stage a buffet, preferably one that is accessible from both sides, and plan to have a variety of beverages on hand. Arrangements of greenery, roses, lilies, and berries look beautiful tucked into mercury glass vessels.
Easy pickup fare, like these Vegetable Pinwheels, are perfect for guests to enjoy as they mix and mingle. Dress up your sweets for the holidays by tying a twine bow around the Chewy Gingerbread Cookies and garnishing the Red Velvet Cupcakes with crushed peppermint.
For younger guests, spruce up classic Coke bottles with little Santa hats and wreaths. Send your friends our invitation, and as a favor, give a cookie cutter and tie our favor tag to it.
