The best Holiday Appetizers and Food Ideas to serve at your Christmas Open House
Are you throwing a Holiday party or Christmas open house this year? I have some amazing food ideas for you! These Christmas Open House Food Ideas are not only easy to make but will wow the crowd.
A Christmas open house is a great way to invite all of your friends over for a little holiday shin-dig without all of the fuss.
And since we aren’t fussing over our Christmas Party then why fuss over the appetizers as well?
I love to host parties but I hate all the stress that often goes along with them. Making your holiday party a Christmas open house is a great way to open your home to friends and family without really entertaining.
When it comes to hosting a holiday gathering I have a few tips for stress free holiday entertaining that you’ll surely want to check out!
Of course, my number one tip is to use your crock pot for easy holiday entertaining – they’re great for keeping appetizers and drinks warm!
When hosting a Christmas open house, though, you will want several food and drink stations set up throughout the house. This will keep the flow of traffic moving and make it easy for people to grab a quick bite while mingling.
Since you’re setting up several food stations throughout the house, not all of your appetizers are going to be hot.
Choosing a few cold appetizers are a great addition to your Christmas open house.
You can set up a hot appetizer station in the kitchen, or on a side or buffet table with access to a power cord.
For the remainder of your Christmas open house foods, choose items that are easy to grab or single serve. You can use the coffee table, end tables, or side tables to place trays of foods on.
Make sure you add plates and napkins at each of your appetizer stations as well.
I like a variety of Holiday appetizers so that there is something for everyone. And of course some fun seasonal or Christmas shaped appetizers are a must!
If you are looking for Holiday appetizers to serve at your Christmas open house then you’ve come to the right place! I’ve chosen some of my favorite appetizers to serve for the holidays to share with you all.
I like appetizers that are easy to put together and only use a few ingredients – after all, when you’re hosting a Christmas open house you want to enjoy your guests and not be stuck int he kitchen, right?!
These are my favorite Holiday appetizers and finger foods to serve at Christmastime.
Even if you’re not hosting a Christmas open house, these are great to set out on Christmas eve or Christmas day while your guests are waiting for diner.
Christmas Open House Appetizers and Finger Foods
Anther seasonal appetizer is this Christmas Tree Cheeseboard – a cheese board is always a favorite Hors ‘d ourve to serve because it is just so simple to put together and anyone can grab a bite easily. Turning your cheese board into a Christmas tree is just so festive!
Cranberry Pecan Brie Bites are full of seasonal flavors! They are quick and easy to put together and aren’t required to stay warm.
Baked tortellini and ravioli are a hearty appetizer that everyone loves!
Ham and Cheese Pinwheels are another delicious and filling appetizer that are great to serve at your Holiday party.
Just like the brie bites, Cranberry and Pecans go hand in hand with these goat cheese balls.
Your party guests will love these Bacon wrapped jalapenos, they add just enough spice to mix perfectly with the smoky bacon flavor.
Take your artichoke dip on the go and make it easy for your guests to mix and mingle while grabbing a bit with these spinach and artichoke dip cups.
Stuffed mushrooms are a terrific holiday appetizer to add for some variety. I love this recipe stuffed with sausage, walnuts and sage.
Another seasonal item making it’s rounds for the holidays are figs. Serve up some fig and brie crostini.
