Christmas Cocktail Party

This year I decided to host a small Christmas Cocktail Party at our house!  I am fond of entertaining and all the fun that goes along with it, especially at Christmas.  

Our house, dressed up for Christmas.

Living room and Christmas Tree.

Christmas spread with lots of yummy food!

Crudite, Brown Butter Pecans, Cheese Straws, Cheese Ball

Shrimp Spread, Mixed Nuts, Pesto Cheese Blossom

Charcuterie, Cheese Plate, Olive Bar

Fresh fruit and a soft, herbed sheep's milk cheese.  Are you hungry yet? 

Bar - Pomegranate - Cranberry Punch with Vodka & Cointreau, Champagne, Red & White Wine

Isn't my little nutcracker plate so cute?  I found it at West Elm a few years ago.

Waterford stemware on a Reed & Barton silverplate tray.

Dessert in the dining room.

Darling Husband slicing oranges.

Bestie Katrina sips the Pom-Cran Cocktail

My first fresh Christmas-y arrangement, inspired by one I saw in Southern Living.  

Merry Christmas to everyone - may you enjoy the holidays with the ones you love most and give thanks for the blessings in your life!
