Ever have to throw together a Christmas Party really quickly?
If so, Costco can be your best friend.
It’s amazing the little feast you can pull together…
…with a trip to Costco…
…and pulling out your treasures.
The side board held the plates. Everything was to be finger food, but I added a stack of little forks just in case. Even the roses were Costco.
Cutting the spiral cut ham into smaller sections makes it finger food…
Some choices of sliced cheese completed the sandwich.
We’ve all heard the expression, shop your house. Well, Santa was on the front entry table but he was needed to anchor the table. I gathered up a grouping of brass candle stick holders and was fortunate to have a box of unused burgundy tapers in house. While shopping at Costco, I was looking for something to pull it all together and the fresh garland did just the trick with the added bonus of a wonderful scent.
At the far end of the table was a black metal plate stand which I didn’t get a shot of. I set my Christmas Tree Spode dinner plates upon the plate stand and filled them with crowd pleasing pigs in a blanket, mini chicken tacos and bagel bites (perfect for the primarily young crowd I was serving).
Entertaining in one’s home can be a true joy. Don’t let the party prep stand in your way. With all of the options in our marketplaces, one can entertain quickly and festively with ease.
