I'm so excited to share my Berries and Branches themed Holiday Party with you! Ever since I saw this theme on Hostess with the Mostess more than 2 years ago I've been wanting to do it - only problem was, I only had silver decorations. This meant some shopping was in order to get ready for the party. Lucky for me Crate and Barrel and Home Goods provided a one stop shop for my decorating needs. Of course a few trips to Michaels craft store and a little online shopping at Save on Crafts filled in the rest.
My go to girl Lindi of Love the Day came through again with an amazing selection of printables. I love adding these touches - especially the water bottles! It's so funny how impressed party guests are when they realize you put your own label on a water bottle.
Also, a big huge thanks to Liz of Liz Hough Photography! After a busy day on multiple shoots, Liz agreed to stop by and take some photos of the party before the festivities began. Thank goodness she did, because my pictures were not so good.
This was our annual wine and cheese open house for friends, family, and neighbors. Usually the theme that drives the menu is wine and cheese, however this year, I needed to incorporate berries (and I guess the peppermint bark could be considered branches?)
On the Dessert Table were Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, Cranberry Coconut Macaroons, Chocolate Goat Cheese Truffles, Peppermint and Cream Cheese Cake Pops, A Candy selection of Strawberry Zaza Chews, Gummie Raspberries, Filled Red Raspberries and Blue Raspberry Rock Candy, and Homemade Peppermint Bark was given as a take home favor.
The Savory Table consisted of Assorted Cheeses and Crackers, Brushetta with Pears Goat Cheese and Honey, Brie en Croute, and Three Cheese Artichoke Dip. And to drink we had Cranberry Sangria and a variety of wines.
