Dinner Party

  • Holiday Celebration

    The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year, but they can also be the most stressful, with expectations for holiday gatherings so much higher than normal day-to-day get-togethers. Translation: there's usually more work to do. Long holiday to-do lists don’t help. But Stirrings® can! Here are a few ideas to lighten your load.

    COCKTAILS

    Set up a cocktail table with pitchers of premixed, holiday-themed favorites. With Stirrings® Mixers, this will be done in a snap. And don’t forget the non-alcoholic options! We’ve got some great suggestions below.

    FOOD

    Here at Stirrings®, you can always find our staff comparing and sharing recipes during the holidays. Beef Tenderloin is a holiday mainstay, and a delicious sauce will transform this dish from tasty, to something guests will rave about. What puts this meal over the top are warm Thyme Popovers, which we can guarantee will disappear all too quickly!

    DECOR

    A Christmas Tree Decorating Party can be a lot of fun, without a lot of stress. A naked tree isn’t the sign of an unprepared hostess; it’s a blank canvas that encourages guests to get creative! And it’s the kind of party that can be held any time of the day, giving you lots of menu options. Before guests arrive, have the tree set up in its stand, light a fire, and queue the Christmas carols.

  • Kicking Off the Holiday Season

    When the weather turns colder, we can’t help but get into the festive mood. Warm fires, twinkling lights, toasty drinks, and togetherness seem to seep in naturally, so why not celebrate it? Friends and family don’t need much of an excuse to get together, but we’ve got some great ideas that will make an evening of holiday fun extra special. If you’re looking for a reason to get friends and family together, why not host an ornament exchange? Request that each guest bring a wrapped ornament, and organize the exchange White Elephant-style. After everyone has opened their gift, a round of “stealing” rouses the playful spirit of everyone involved. Best of all, each guest gets to go home with a souvenir from the special night.

    COCKTAILS

    Punch bowls or large pitchers of seasonal cocktails will not only brighten a holiday side table, but allowing guests to get up and serve themselves will encourage mingling. Our Pomegranate Orange Sangria is easy to whip up in a big batch, and we’ve even got a non-alcoholic version so the whole family can enjoy. Cranberries and orange wheels make a great, seasonally appropriate garnish.

    FOOD

    A selection of appetizers so that guests can make small plates will keep the gathering from feeling too formal, and if you’d like to open up the option for guests to bring their favorite recipe to share, all the better! Choose some savory bites such as mini-quiches as well as something sweet, such as spiced cookies. ’Tis the season, after all!

    DECOR

    Nothing sets the stage like a crackling fire, but if you don’t have a fireplace, the same warm and cozy effect can be accomplished with candles. Varying sizes and colors can both light and decorate a serving table. Alternatively, a string of white lights woven through fir sprigs are kid-friendly and take no time at all!
