I have finally accepted the fact that I will not be hosting a holiday celebration this year. Between friends’ Christmas parties and then flying home to spend the holidays with my family and friends, there just isn’t a free night to host a bash.
Treats would consist of classic chocolate whoopie pies with candy cane sprinkles (recipe here), striped and polka dotted bags of chips and popcorn, skewers of tomato and bocconcini, and a red and white striped ruffle cake. These are fairly easy to make, and tie in the red and white theme.
For refreshments, I would set-up a milk, eggnog, and spiked eggnog station for guests, using small milk jugs and stripey red paper straws as well as red polka dot paper straws.
Guest favours would be large, swirly red and white lollipops – fun! You can find these in-store at Indigo and Chapters.
I may not host a Christmas party this time around, but there’s always next year. Have a lovely holiday!
