One of our favorite things to do at the Holidays is to host parties! We love to have people over and celebrate with lots of Christmas cheer! Some of our favorite moments are playing games after dinner when everyone laughs till their stomachs hurt! Great memories!
I love to have food made ahead of time for parties because it allows me to relax while my guests are arriving. Having a cheese platter ready to go is an easy way to give your guests a little something as they arrive. I also love doing cheese boards because they can be easily done gluten free! We do have some gluten free friends and it’s always nice to have something ready to go for them to enjoy as well.
One way to help decide on your cheese board items is by using Castello’s Cheese Board Builder!
I loved using this website to help decide on cheeses that I would use, plus the items that would go with the cheese I chose! It takes the guess-work out of making a cheese board with gourmet cheeses, nuts, meats and dried fruits- and even gives tips for dietary restrictions! I used Castello Gouda, Castello Traditional Danish Blue Cheese, Castello Havarti, peanuts & summer sausage. So easy and simple to put together ahead of time! PS…those Castello cheeses are soooo yummy!
Another great product that we found is this aerosol, non-stick PAM: Cooking Spray! I love that it has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives! It’s perfect for spraying pie pans, cake pans and other holiday baking projects, not to mention cooking too! I loved using it in my baking – banana bread pans. Grab a discount on the Ibotta app & easily earn cash back on your purchase of Pam!
Another fun holiday treat we found is these darling Cracker Barrel Christmas Milk Bottles! Perfect for setting out cookies and milk for Santa or sipping chocolate milk out of on Christmas morning! I loved using cute green and red striped straws with them.

I love the little snowflakes on these! So cute for a holiday party! You can grab these at 30% off as well!
Christmas Central is a great resource for wonderful Christmas Decor! It’s a one stop shop for everything Christmas! They have all kinds of lighting, trees and holiday decor. I love this Flocked Wreath below!
I also loved these Deer pillows! I love a good rustic theme!
One can’t forget our furry friends during the Holidays!

Another great stocking stuffer for the pups in your life is WHIMZEES: Daily Dental Chews.
