One of my favorite holiday traditions is the Christmas Dinner that my friend Alisha and I host for some of our girlfriends. I love planning, preparing for and enjoying it. It's so fun to get together with friends and enjoy each others company along with good food every now and again.
These were the invitations we sent out and the little craft/favor that everyone made and went home with. It's a recipe book with several of our favorite recipes complete with pics from the party over the years. We'll add new recipes to it each year and it will be a great collection of holiday favorites.
- Frothy Pink Grapefruit Strawberry Drink
- Tomato, Mozzerella & Basil Skewers drizzled with Balsamic Dressing
- Roasted Red Pepper Dip on a Crusty Baguette
- Christmas Salad
- Cajun Candied Salmon
- Lemon Rice
- New Wave Green Beans
- Fruit Salad with Cherries
- Orange Rolls
- Mini Cheesecakes & Brownie Tarts with Carmel Frosting
It was all soooooo goood!
(most of these recipes are on the recipe blog linked on my sidebar and the rest will make their way there eventually)
We had our traditional dessert exchange which is always fun and exciting. Everyone goes home with a fun holiday dessert for their family and a cute new serving tray. This year we had a banana cake with carmel and burnt butter frosting, peppermint bark popcorn, chocolate covered oreos, adoreable pretzel rod snowmen, homemade oreo cookies with peppermint, peanut butter and jelly bars and fudge, red velvet cupcakes, and a chocolate cheesecake cake.
