The holidays are a great time to get together with the ones you love. Whether you are a host or a guest, preparing for an upcoming holiday party can be a bit overwhelming. Check out these party go-to’s sure to put you and your guests in the Christmas spirit!
Snacks to get the party started
Start your holiday party off right with a variety of snacks for your guests to entertain while you prepare dinner. A charcuterie board is a great appetizer to have out and ready for your guests. Pick up fresh, local sliced meats and cheeses that can be prepared before your guests arrive. Try adding rosemary and cranberries for a festive pop of colour.
Turkey is usually the main attraction during the holidays but having everyone’s favourite side dishes adds to the tradition. Potatoes, green beans and turnips are some Christmas traditions you can’t go wrong with. Try adding a dash of brown sugar to your squash or sweet potatoes to caramelize them for a sweet surprise. Make sure to ask guests for dietary restrictions when collecting RSVPs and try adding a gluten free option and vegetarian option so there is something for everyone.
