The Holiday Soiree: Drinks, Friends and Food!
Our Holiday Soiree this year was filled with our best friends and family, endless drinks and delicious food! We talked, we sang, we laughed. We were snowed-in with our fire place roaring, while we toasted to an amazing year. And that’s what it’s all about for us – bringing our loved ones and friends, new and old, together for a great time and create memories. See how it all came together …
The Food: For a party of 25 guests, a sit down dinner wasn’t something our dining room could accommodate. Instead, we turned our kitchen island into a buffet! We featured an array of finger foods and hors’ dourves (many of which we took from this round-up of recipes from BuzzFeed’s “Next Level Appetizers for Your Holiday Party“). This allowed everyone to eat when they were ready, and sit in any spot throughout the house!
The Drinks: We had an open bar, tended by our cousin who kept the party going with mixed drinks, Stella Artois beers, and our signature Holiday Pomegranate Martini. We also set up a serve yourself Winter Sangria station, so guests could serve themselves. At the end of the night we served Eggnog Jello Shots and Peppermint Mocha Holiday Jello Shots (must-see recipes at ThatsSoMichelle.com)
The Naughty or Nice Photo Booth: Creating this DIY Photo Booth in our home was a hit with all of our friends! A simple yet popular activity you can add to any party. Make your own props, set up a camera or encourage guests to use their cell phones. These photos definitely created some great memories!

Happy Holidays & New Year!! CHEERS!
