Tips for Planning a Christmas Party with Finger Foods
Here’s some things to remember when planning your holiday party!
Consider the guest list
Plan recipes that accommodate children of different ages and food preferences. Remember to ask if anyone has any dietary needs or restrictions!
Setting up a festive food station
It can be really fun to creating an inviting and visually appealing spread using finger foods. I always suggest setting out all of your platters or plates empty and using scrap paper to label what will go where the night before!
Incorporating themed decorations
Enhance the holiday atmosphere with little festive touches. Bunches of greenery, bowls of ornaments, or other small decor items can go a long way.
I always suggest picking a simple theme or color scheme. When everything coordinates, it makes a bigger visual impact!
