Christmas Eve Party::The Food

Hi Lovelies! Happy Holidays!
Hope you all had a great time filled with love, laughter and joy with your family and friends. I know I did and I'm still having a great time with my family. 
This post is going to make up for my lack of food post for a while. I mentioned in a previous post that I was hosting a Christmas Party. I'm happy to say it has come and gone and it was everything I thought it would be and more. It was a gathering of close friends and family with lots of great food. It was beyond great having everyone together on Christmas Eve feasting, laughing, playing games, mingling and chatting. I felt honored that everyone honored the invitation (which I'll post soon) and made time to be there and very grateful to everyone that helped in making it possible. My sister for opening up her home to everyone and the rest of my sisters and friend, Carole for helping with the food and set up.

Today, since we're snowed in and can't go anywhere, I'll be sharing with you the menu for the party. One or two of the items on here didn't make it to the party because of time, but I/we made it the following days and some did not get pictured. Everything was made from scratch with the exception of the meat balls(not pictured) and lemonade mix. There were some favorite at the party, so I'll be sharing some recipes in the future also. If you do see something you like or sounds good and will like me to share the recipe, please let me know.
