Berries & Branches Winter Party
December 17, 2010 by 8 Comments
This gorgeous party was sent in by Rene of Rene Takes the Cake, and is a fine example of a holiday party that doesn’t “scream” Christmas. It is wonderfully appropriate for any social gathering all throughout the Winter months with it’s Berries & Branches motif!
This soiree was a wine & cheese theme and served up delicious dishes based on berries, wine, and/or cheese. The modern print table runners from HomeGoods are such a great base and there’s no need to put them away after December 25. Even the vases of berry branches can sit out until Spring. I love the detail of the mirror appliques too, cut out by the Silhouette machine.
The yummy dessert table is accented by lovely printables from Love The Day, and consists of Red Velvet Cupcakes w/cream cheese frosting, Cranberry Coconut Macaroons, Goat Cheese Truffles, Peppermint and Cream Cheese Cake Pops, and various Candies. Homemade Peppermint Bark was given as a take home favor.
For a more savory palette Rene served Assorted Cheeses and Crackers, Bruschetta with Pears, Goat Cheese and Honey, Brie en Croute, and 3-Cheese Artichoke Dip. I absolutely love when a theme is carried out in the food, and the beautiful Sangria finishes it all off wonderfully!
Thank you for sharing this fantastic party with us Rene. Cheers!
