Retro Playful Christmas Party Details:
This is what Flavia said about the party- “This year we had a small and cozy family get together to kickstart the holiday season. We picked a quiet Sunday afternoon in early December and aimed for a no-fuss yet delicious, healthy and sophisticated menu.
I love finger foods because you have the freedom to try different flavors while mingling and moving around without the need for plates or utensils. Plus, I get to play with finding whimsical “packages” to serve or display the small bites.
One good example are phyllo dough pre-baked shells that, for a quick appetizer, I love to fill with a combination of soft cheeses, nuts and a sweet element – chutneys, jams, fresh, dried or cooked fruit, maple syrup, honey…
We offered some white whole wheat “Cookies for Santa” for guests to take home (but I really doubt they actually saved them for Christmas eve. Sorry, Santa.)
Before they left, they wrote Santa Claus lovely notes and wish lists on “Dear Santa” postcards”.
