Our Christmas Party Menu

The holidays brings lots of get-togethers with close and extended family members. Halloween and Thanksgiving have come and gone. Next, is the Christmas season. I am hosting a Christmas party this year for my family (two adults and our three kids) and my three siblings and their significant others and three kids each as well as for my mother and grandmother.

I am not the biggest fan of hosting parties. There is a lot of pressure and lots of details to put together, but I do believe in family and love and spending time with those you care about doing things that bring joy to life.

My family likes food and we will be having plenty of food at every holiday party. Here is what our Christmas party menu is likely going to look like. I thought I would share it with you in case you are struggling to come up with a menu yourself. Feel free to use this plan or adjust it to suit your own needs and preferences.





  • Random 2-Liters (Whatever my brother brings)
  • Water
  • Coffee
