Easy Christmas Entertaining Recipes

Easy Christmas Entertaining Recipes

I’m guessing by now that most of you are finishing up work for the holidays and spending the majority of your time Christmas shopping and enjoying the festivities. 

One of my favourite things about this time of year is the Christmas parties. The festive season is best enjoyed with friends and family, after all, but I think the reason everyone loves these parties so much is the food. 

From fruit platters to cookies and *of course* some mince pies – Christmas parties are the best for indulging and enjoying a little bite of every. single. thing… except maybe the gorgonzola!

In this post you’ll find a list of my favourite Christmas entertaining recipes for 2018. I’ve included a little of everything, so whether you’re hosting your own holiday party this year, or are just looking for something to bring along to your cousins festive gathering – you’re guaranteed to find exactly what you need.
