This Month: Holiday Cocktail Party

The holiday season is rife with cocktail parties, open-houses, cookie and ornament exchanges, and celebrations galore!  I love to throw a simple cocktail party as opposed to a sit-down dinner.  When you're from a military family, you typical mix with many circles, so this setting is perfect to let your guests mingle and get to know each other.  Also, you don't need to worry if you have enough chairs or matching place settings.  You can set up stations throughout your party space, having areas dedicated to the drinks, sweet, and savory dishes.  My version was simply the appetizers leading up to Christmas dinner, but these can easily be incorporated into a wonderfully sophisticated cocktail party!  Enjoy!


  1. What a fabulous way to host a party!

  2. I recently started sharing recipes on The Jenny Evolution and thought it would be terrific to have a group on FB where we can share our recipes not just with other bloggers but with people who are searching out recipes. That said, I’m launching a Food Blogger group! If we work together we can make this a great outlet for all of us. If you’d like to join, visit me here

    To be approved post to the group, please follow the directions in the group description. Look forward to seeing you there!

  3. Hi Kate,

    Come Back Soon,
