Cocktail Party

Cocktail Party

Everyone loves a party.  Some people like hosting, some only like attending, and others, like myself, love both.  Here's a sample party to help give you ideas when you're planning your next party.

It's not a cocktail party without some cocktails:

Tequila-Thyme Lemonade:

Fireside Martini:

Or any other cocktail off my drinks section.

Scatter some fresh flowers throughout the party area:

Keep coasters available for guests' drinks and have some playing cards out in case anyone wants to start a game:

To me, a meat and cheese tray is a classic go-to party staple.  It's easy to put together for the host, and just as easy to grab and eat for the guests.  Plus, I think they look pretty:

Every party needs a dip, right?  Here's a hot spinach and artichoke dip, but any of your favorites will work just fine.

See that small bowl hiding behind the spinach and artichoke dip?  That's snack mix.  Make your own or buy it at the store.  However you get it, just do it, because it's another easy snack to have on hand.  And people will eat it.

Bacon-wrapped dates!  Yum:

Some chocolate chip cookies for the guests with sweet teeth:

And some reused candle jars as candy jars, because, let's be honest, most people will usually go for at least a bite of something sweet:

Enjoy the night and have a blast with friends!
