Since you've obviously got some free time on your hands why don't you come up with some good holiday/cocktail party ideas for me???
Free time??? Actually I've been baking ALL DANG DAY!!! Have made four yeast rolls (2 poppyseed and 2 almond) as DH insisted I bake them to bring to BIL's for Christmas. I have also made a Praline Bundt cake w/ glaze and the dough for It. egg bread is on it's second rising. I have also wrapped two gifts and done misc. tasks like DISHES! between contributions to this board (the latter keeps me sane). I'd love to assist under normal conditions and will try to do so if time permits WW. Have you tried the Food board? If I can help, I'll do so. Stay tuned.
Froo, that Praline Bundt Cake sounds delicious.
First, figure out things like budget, theme, degree of formality, food/drink, appetizers, finger foods or desserts, number of guests, age of guests, spacial planning, etc.
Can't go wrong with this link:
Oh my..naughty or nice???
TIP: it's frequently advised that punch bowls be set up (one mildly alcoholic and the other minus the booze). A mulled cider is popular.
The ultimate hostess:
Tons more helpful links from decorating, serving, food/drink, themes, music, etc. Appeal to all the senses. Opt for dishes that are made ahead and is easily replenished. Self serve buffet tables are best and scatter both food and drink around so there's no traffic jams. Enjoy yourself!
Cookie cocktails anyone? Stumbled upon these earlier in the day...
I was just kidding! But you can send all those baked goods my way
Thanks for the links. I think I'll go make something to drink (he he he) and take a look.
Are you tired yet? I admire your energy to do all that holiday baking.

BR, it was an all day event. I think I'm running out of gas tho. Relaxing now after packing for a trip tomorrow. Have to head out early due to an impending mountain snow storm. About to join DH for PROJECT RUNWAY. Oddly enough it's the only show we watch together.
