Festive, Easy to Make Holiday Party Snacks

Preparing festive holiday party snacks does not mean you need to devote hours and hours in the kitchen. Plus, if you take our advice, you will not only save time, you will save money because you are portion controlling your food. The key is investing in some fun serving pieces like mini cocktail glasses, mini moscow mule cups, and even some ceramic Asian spoons you can use over and over again. Once you have a few of these basics, you can make the simplest of foods look festive and elegant. We have also checked, and all the serving piece suggestions we mention here are still available for delivery before Christmas although you may have to pay a little extra for expedited delivery.

Many of the items are available on Amazon Prime. If, by chance you do not currently have an Amazon Prime Membership, today is the day to sign up for an  Amazon Prime FREE 30 Day Trial Membership.

Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

Party Idea Pros has gathered the best of the best in holiday party plates and tableware.  From Christmas tree to snowmen  to candy cane to Santa Claus to Hanukkah theme tableware,  you will surely find a holiday pattern to please your fancy. Most of the holiday party plates have matching and coordinating napkins but on occasion we come across a festive holiday beverage napkin without matching plates.  We have added them to the bottom of this list. Most sites recommend coordinating products but if not, simply pair with a solid plate or even a clear plastic plate.  One last note – we love combining patterns so do not hesitate to mix and match your plates and napkins.  Mixing and matching not only adds a festive touch, it also makes the entire look more chic and up to date.

Are these not the cutest Christmas tree candy treats ever?  Perfect to serve at a holiday parties, Christmas Day open houses and even to give as stocking stuffers or small holiday gifts of endearment. We also love the fact that these chocolate tree treats are so easy for the kids to make themselves.

Now add an individual Christmas Tree Treat at each place setting.  You can set them in the middle of each plate or use as a place card holder >> just lean a small place card up against your hand Christmas Tree! #toocute
