Pinterest Christmas Party Inspiration

We hosted a Christmas party for Captain Project's staff on Sunday.  I turned to Pinterest for presentation and recipe inspiration.

Playing hostess with the mostest didn't leave me much time for pictures but I did manage to shoot a few...

Inspiration pin:
 

I used a 10" Wilton cake pan so there wasn't enough space to lay them out as nicely as the inspiration picture, but it sure kept the shrimp nice and cold.

My presentation was a bit amateurish:

 
But I made up for it with the desserts!
 

Peppermint sandwich cookies

(Recipe here)

Chocolate peanut butter balls.  They taste like crunchy Reese's Cups!


5 minute recipe:  In a bowl, and with your hands, mix 2 cups smooth peanut butter, 2 cups confectioner's sugar, and 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal.  Form mixture into balls then dip them into melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and place onto parchment paper.  Pop them into the refrigerator until chocolate sets up.
 
Chocolate covered marshmallows on candy canes

And Rolo pretzels

Yay for Pinterest!  I really love you:)

We just had my hubby's employee dinner at our house last Saturday. I know how much work you went through!!!! We had over 35, with 5 of them being kids, but it all turned out well, as I'm sure yours did, too. You did a great job girlfriend!

Hugs,
Meri
