The Perfect Holiday Party Snack

The Perfect Holiday Party Snack

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chex™. The opinions and text are all mine. The holidays are upon us and our to-do lists as a hostess/mom are endless this time of year. There is lots to accomplish - people to entertain, gifts to buy, kids to feed....I could go on and on! That is why I always have a “secret weapon” in my recipes/entertaining arsenal. Something tasty, quick and easy to prepare, and one that pleases both young, and young-at-heart-kids! πŸ˜‰

So my heart dictated the choice of colors for our Christmas table this year! Check out the prettiness below.

December is 'round the corner so it's the perfect time to be thinking about your Advent Calendars!  I always seem to leave it too late, I must confess.

Roast Pork with Herb & Mustard Crust Recipe

Roast Pork with Herb & Mustard Crust Recipe

My favorite part of the Christmas Holidays is cooking and baking well into the New Year. It's my way of showing my family and friends how much I love them. I feed, therefore I love πŸ˜‹  But I also like putting my feet up and enjoy their company, so I tend to go for big batch recipes, stuff I can make ahead or easy bang-it-in-the-oven-and-forget-about-it type of recipes. Hence this tasty Christmas roast pork with a gorgeous herbs and mustard crust, which I served at my Christmas meal last year!

Green & Gold Christmas Holiday Tablescape

Green & Gold Christmas Holiday Tablescape

I styled this green and gold Christmas Holiday party last year, but never got a chance to show it here on the blog. But I'm glad to be sharing now, 'cause apparently the 2017 Pantone color of the year is green (or greenery), so we're bang on trend! πŸ˜‰ This was one of the easiest table decor styling or tablescapes I've ever done. My sister was coming over from London for Christmas, and I wanted to create homely, cozy atmosphere for our family dinner.

DIY Christmas Ornament Baubles Garland

DIY Christmas Ornament Baubles Garland

I created this gorgeous and super easy Christmas baubles ornaments garland for my Holiday Cocktails & Appetizers party I shared last week. Did you see it up behind our the bar?! So pretty! Originally, I wanted to make a baubles ornament wreath, but those things look a LOT easier in theory, I tell ya! Have you ever tried making one? Man, they are a pain! Not only you always end up with a lot less baubles than you thought you might need, which means endless trips to the shops to buy more...not to mention they take aaaaages to get looking so full and pretty like you see on Pinterest , and let's not even mention the hot glue burns. Sigh...

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

When it come to Holiday entertaining, it's always a great idea to serve a big-batch punch or signature cocktail that your guests can get stuck into straight away. Something that involves little effort, and maximum satisfaction is my motto.  So for my Silver & Blue Cocktail and Appetizers party I shared earlier in the week, I did just that.  Serving up a batch cocktail like this means you can prep it in advance and just forget about it, which in turn leaves you free to mingle and enjoy the party! Something we tend to forget sometimes at parties we host ourselves (sound familiar?) πŸ˜‰
