Christmas Cocktail Party Inspiration

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

With the Holiday season underway, I wanted to share some fun Christmas cocktail party ideas for those of you looking to add a few extra festive touches! From cocktail garnish ideas to the perfect holiday cheese board, these ideas will definitely WOW guests!! Merry Christmas!!

Merry Garnishes

Some of my favorite Christmas cocktail garnishes include sugared cranberries, pomegranates, regular cranberries, or a sprig of rosemary. Find more ideas on my Christmas Party foods on my Pinterest board.

Christmas Tree Cheese Board

This cheese board is my absolute favorite holiday appetizer. It’s so simple and yet gets SO MANY compliments year after year!! Simply alternate cheese with salami, rosemary, and strawberries, to create the shape of a Christmas tree in Christmas colors!! Top with pomegranates for added Christmas reds!! Go over the top by staging it on a Christmas tree wooden board.
