HOLIDAY DINNER PARTY 2018


You all know I love to host! 
On my long list of hobbies its definitely one of the top!
 The cooking, the baking and ESPECIALLY the dinnerware, placemats, candles and entertaining pieces!

 It's all an excuse to get delicious cheeses, aromatic wines and beautifully sparkly decor pieces! This was a small dinner party for 4 but boy did it pack a punch!

Appetizer





For these mini caprese, you'll need:

🖤party picks

🖤cherry tomatoes
🖤mozzarella cheese cubes


Use the bottom flat side of the cheese to gold the pick up and place on a beautiful long appetizer plate to present to your guests.


MAIN COURSE


Dinner consisted of stuffed chicken with spinach, feta, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese.
Use frozen not fresh spinach and season your chicken with salt and pepper.
Add any additional flavor you want but remember that the saltier the cheese the less seasoning you need.




🖤CHICKEN
🖤FETA CHEESE

🖤CREAM CHEESE

🖤SEASONING OF YOUR CHOICE

🖤PARM


For sides, I went with rice pilaf from the bag for the easiest dinner ever and candied carrots, they taste amazing, add a great balance of sweetness to this dinner menu, and they look fancy AF but take no effort!
