While we love spending hours in the kitchen whipping up impressive party-worthy creations, many of us just don’t have the time. Make things easier on yourself by selecting a few recipes that are simple or can be made in advance. You can even work in a few assembly-only platters and plates that require just a trip to the store. Whatever route you take, know that while the food is an exciting part of any gathering, everyone’s there to spend quality time together. In other words, do what you can to make your party as stress-free as possible.
Here are some party foods that are sweet to look at and easy to eat.
- Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese
- Shrimp Dip
- Toasted Ravioli
- Mac + Cheese Donuts
- Cranberry Brie Bites
- Pull-Apart Christmas Tree
- Sweet Potato Bites

There are so many fun ways to host a Friendsmas party. You can do it as an adults only party, or bring kids in on the fun. It can be casual and whimsical, or more of a formal dinner party vibe.
We always recommend sending out the invitations a month with an RSVP date one week before.
Be intentional about your guest list and pick a time frame that works with your schedule. The holiday season is full of plenty of fun and festivities, but all those holiday parties can quickly add up
There’s nothing better than the moment it’s socially acceptable to play Christmas songs! They brighten your day and make everyone feel warm and fuzzy inside. Whether you love them or hate them, get people in the festive spirit with a Christmas playlist ready to go.
