Holiday Party!

The "sweets" table!

We had our first annual Holiday Open House this past weekend for some friends and family! I have been wanting to do this for so many years, but we've never had a place that could really accommodate that many people. I went a little overboard on the desserts, especially considering we had our first real snow that morning so several guests had to cancel! We had savory food as well, but I'm just sharing the desserts - some of which are my favorite holiday recipes, some of which are new and will be posted next week. We had such a great time and hope our guests did as well! :)


The Trio of Quick Breads:



Gingerbread Cookies (recipe to be posted soon!)

Oreo Truffles (I will post some tips for an easier way to make these soon!)

Homemade Vanilla Marshmallows (I had a make-your-own hot cocoa station - just packets of cocoa with hot water in a carafe and candy canes to swirl around - this was a BIG hit!)

Brown Sugar and Spice Mitten Cookies (recipe coming soon!), behind those are the chocolate/toasted coconut covered homemade marshmallows!

Beware - if you make these "Let It Snow" cookies . . .DSCN7567_labeled

it just might happen:

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We leave tomorrow for our first Christmas celebration!


  1. Now, this is one party I want to be invited to!!!!

  2. Gorgeous spread, I'd be a very happy guest!

  3. Wow! What a spread! Everything looks absolutely fantastic. I'm sure all the goodies were enjoyed!

  4. Will you adopt me? :) Or at least invite me next time? Seriously, you are an amazing lady!

  5. All of the goodies look so good. I love the hot cocoa station. I think when we have a place big enough to entertain people, I'll go a bit overboard too. :)

  6. I was one of the lucky guests and enjoyed all the delicious food. Meghan has a knack of setting a beautiful table.

  7. What a wonderful party. I miss the snow dearly!!! I have been wanting to throw a holiday party for years as well. One day it will be my day.

  8. What a wonderful table ツ

  9. What an absolutely beautiful spread! You outdid yourself. I want to see the other spread too, lol! Great job!!

  10. Wow, what a spread - I can't believe you've just shown us the sweets! The hot chocolate bar is such a great idea. Can't wait to see your recap on the gingerbread cookies!

  11. Wow--you did an fabulous job!! I don't know how I would ever decide what to go for first haha :-)
