Decorating for the holidays, always had fun with it! Never mind the "talking Christmas tree on the right", that was my son's "addition" to the holiday decor:)
DEAN AND DELUCA APPETIZERS I have ordered from them before, and really like their products. They have great quality control, offer fast and efficient delivery and I don't think I have ever tried anything I haven't really loved. So for this years annual family Christmas party I am once again ordering some of their appetizers in addition to making some of my own. I make an amazing baked brie which I will share the recipe with you on, and a wonderful version of a mini Empanada and always do a huge Italian platter of assorted cheeses, meats, breads, olives, etc but its always nice to add some ready to made things too. They ship everywhere! Some of my faves are........
Love this! The cheese lovers appetizer trio of assorted puff pastry and cheeses
Spring rolls....who doesn't love these!
Lobster flatbread, yum!!
Caviar is always a nice and elegant treat around the holidays!
Date and almond crisps..these are really tasty and great with any kind of cheese!
A CUSTOM DOG TRAY. Do you know someone who loves their dog? And loves entertaining? I mean REALLY loves their dog and really loves entertaining? Then they will absolutely love this custom made tole tray featuring their very own pooch as the subject, handpainted by Two Girls. They are not cheap, but what a beautiful keepsake and/or gift! I think these are so special and practical to use or display and such a unique gift too! Click here to visit.

I have a day full of house errands, Christmas shopping and trying to get myself organized to contend with for today, I cannot believe Christmas is about 2 weeks away....YIKES!! I keep taking deep breaths when I feel the anxiety creeping in, and reminding myself that I always get the job done. How about you? Anything you are loving this week? Are you crazy busy too? Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
