Hey party lovers, are you excited for 2018? I sure am!!

I think by the time New Year Eve comes 'round, I'm all partied out! 😋

Having said that, we always have nibbles and drinks at our house on the last day of the year. Whether we have company or not.

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! 😉

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...

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Following from last week's brunch post , and as promised; here's my recipe for Vol-au-vent Baked Eggs.

That's where this Spiced Earl Grey Hot Toddy comes in super handy!
