Christmas Yum!

Here at Polka Dot Affair we are kicking off a Food Buzz Blog Series featuring lots of inspirational and fun party food ideas for you to try at home. And what better time of the year than Christmas? There is so much delicious Christmas food out there at the moment that it would be wrong not to write about it!

Lots of Christmas recipes and food ideas have caught my eye recently, and I want to make all of them!! Like these snow globe cookies (super cute).  Looking at them they look like a lot of time and effort will be required to make them, but cookies can be made ahead of time and stored appropriately till they are needed. Either way they would look great on your Christmas party table and I’m sure adults and kids alike will love them.

Something that will definitely add some colour to your food table is a food wreath or tree. Be it fresh or cooked these have to be a definite inclusion to your menu this Christmas. Caprese salads and antipasto seem to be a favourite to serve as a wreath whereas fruits seem to be popular as Christmas trees. Food presented this way is definitely on trend with grazing platters being very popular at the moment so let your imagination run wild as you add some elegant food platters to the table.
