This past weekend was our secret santa/cookie exchange/beer exchange/ugly sweater holiday party extravaganza! We had guests bring either a dozen cookies or a six pack of their favorite brew, it's a great way to get the non-bakers involved. The color pallet was red, gold, glitter, and reindeer. We added holiday cheer with ornaments in apothecary jars, hand made ornaments hung in the window, a "Merry & Bright" sign over the fireplace, and a photo frame wall. We had a spread of appetizers which included a meats & truffled cheese spread, tortellini skewers with pesto dip, eggplant dip, salsa, and much more. For the beverages we had a hot coco station, pomegranate-champagne fizz punch, and a DIY drink station.
