This is my favorite time of the year because I love any reason to entertain and the holidays are seriously the perfect excuse to throw a dinner party. Dinner parties are my jam, especially one’s with good friends and delicious cocktails.  During the holidays I love to have festive drinks for my guests when they walk through the door.  We love to keep it casual when it comes to hosting at our house.  Patrick normally throws something amazing on the grill and I whip up the sides, salads, and a few hors d’oeuvres to start the night. I never met a cheese plate I didn’t like.  Recently I picked up this marble board that is perfect for a large spread of different starters for everyone to enjoy.

One of our must-haves during the holidays is having a fully stocked bar.  (You know everyone is in need of a cocktail or two during the hustle and bustle of December). I love to take our entry table and turn it into an accessible spot for everyone to serve themselves.  I try to make sure everyone feels at home when they walk through the door, so making sure everything easy is key. Thanks to Absolut, our bar got a little POP of color this year with their limited edition Andy Warhol bottle.

My favorite holiday cocktail reciepe is a Winter Sea Breeze

1 part Absolut Vodka

1 part Grapefruit Juice

Fill the rest with champagne or prosecco

Garnish with fresh cranberries and thyme to add a festive flare!
